Description
With a background in the joys of sampling and a foreground in scuzzy guitar, bass and beaten up drums, with schizo music tastes and a West Country pace, The Heavy has been building brick by dirty brick. Now they'd like to welcome you into their beautiful home for a little nose around, a kind of party if you like. And if a little blood gets spilled then that's just how it is. Nobody said it was going to be a spread from "Hello" magazine. It will, though, be the best party you've ever been to.

Mixed and produced by Jim Abiss (best known for his work on the first Arctic Monkeys, Adele and Kasabian) and with Noisettes input on three tracks (The Heavy toured with them and have all became firm friends), "The House That Dirt Built" represents a huge step forward from an already fantastic debut in "Great Vengeance & Furious Fire".

Since then the Heavy have toured the world and, where the first record was sample-based, the new one is much more a product of working as a band. Like the early rock n roll, blues and rhythm and blues which have influenced it, "The House That Dirt Built" is larger than life, funny, terrifying and occasionally beautiful. It is, in fact, a house you'll want to visit again.
