Dirty Photographs

The Bonnevilles

Is this our sexiest album so far? We think so for sure.

When we started this band one of our guiding notions was to get people dancing. Here in Northern Ireland it seemed to us at gigs there was a distinct lack of boogieing. I remember going to see the Von Bondies, before the Bonnevilles was a thing, in Belfast and they tore the place up but the entire room was pinned to the walls tapping feet but

not shaking booty. Jason, told the room off, and he was right to do so then played even harder in reaction, that impressed the shit out of me. Northern Ireland was still traumatised from its recent history, people were still trying to figure out how to be normal, I remember it very clearly and we didn’t know how to dance to a great band.

Sometimes being a band thats rooted in the blues it’s too easy to get weighed down by its sheer mass and heavy content.

Over the years we’ve written about death and love, zombies and strippers. Not Zombie strippers though, not yet anyway. This record we’ve gone straight for passion,sex and love along with a little political righteous indignation. For us love and politics are not mutually exclusive.

We give you Dirty Photographs, the album, you can provide your own filth.

Arrow Pierce My Heart The Bonnevilles 3rd studio album.

N.I. MUSIC PRIZE NOMINEE

Dan Hegarty RTE 2 FM "....The Bonnevilles are back with new music in the form of the album ‘Arrow Pierce My Heart’. Simply calling this Blues Rock wouldn’t do it justice, there’s something more progressive and aggressive going on here. Their own description of “Garage Punk Blues duo” works a lot better. ‘Arrow Pierce My Heart’ contains the duo’s best work, and it’s quite a statement....."

Scott Zuppardo at No Depression "...This is simply a band that needs to be on any rock fan's radar. You'll want to dance and feel like a badass at the same time. Spin this record on your turntable and turn it up well past your comfort zone...."

Folk Art & The Death Of Electric Jesus

The Bonnevilles

In cart Not available Out of stock

Our 2nd album, released on Twenty Stone Blatt Records 2012

CD available

More Than Music "Imagine a two-headed fuzz delta garage punk fusion that comes on like an incestuous relationship between The Black Keys and The Jon Spencer Blues channeled via Rory Gallagher, Howlin' Wolf and Willie Dixon." 9/10

The Irish Times "...grief lurks over their second album like a leaden spectre. McGibbon’s whiskey-soaked voice is a powerful tool, driving home the likes of on of Reverbio with a steely fortitude and scaling it back for the tender shimmer of Separate Ways. Occasionally recalling the shady stalk of contemporary artists such as Dan Sartain..." 4/5

Mojo Magazine "... stunning of the wall twisted punk blues - makes the Black Keys seem like a bunch of pussys..." 4/5

Vive Le Rock A neat collection of primal electrified noise featuring lyrics that hark way back to the god-fearing era of Robert Johnson, Son House et al....

...Hip, hot, loud and likely a storm if you catch them live " 8/10

Alternative Ulster "...it’s dense, it’s thrashy, and oh-so-dark. We always had an inkling The Bonnevilles weren’t the tea sippin’ kind, but Folk Art & The Death of Electric Jesus presents us with a solid slab of woe sure to convince any non-believers. 8/10

Incognito Magazine Top 5 Songs of the year. “10,000″ by The Bonnevilles (Folk Art and the Death of Electric Jesus). If ZZ Top collaborated with a raw garage-rock duo, this song would be the result.

Jam Bands Capable of making a lot of noise when they want to, McMullan and McGibbon also know how to hold back when they need to – allowing the knockout punch to land all the harder. The tunes on Folk Art And The Death Of Electric Jesus are all the more impressive when you take in that these are all originals … and while there are wisps of inspirations here and there, the bottom line is, McMullan and McGibbon are bluesmen. Rory Gallagher would’ve loved these guys.

Dan Hegarty RTE 2fm Album of the week.

Wes Freed "...Hey lovers of hard-edged bluesy RAWK everwhere! Check this out !- Irelands fearless road warriors the BONNEVILLES have a new release ! Hopefully we will be seeing them stateside sometime soon , meantime they will be tearing up the clubs, pubs & dark crossroads of the British Isles, laying down brutal licks & raw,gut-bucket vox , making you sweat like you were in the Mississippi delta on a hot August night. Hell yea! Thank you , that is all . feeqout..."

Red Wine On A Sunday Folk Art & The Death Of Electric Jesus sounds like the The Rolling Stones' Exile On Mainstreet on steroids

Rick Saunders Folk Art & The Death Of Electric Jesus is still knocking me out. '08s Good Suits and Fightin' Boots was a great heads-up but this is exceptional. You want.
