Dirty Money

Dirty Money was a UK band around circa 2007-10. In their time, they became one of the most successful UK hardcore bands ever. They put out a split 7" with Trapped Under Ice on A389 Records, and toured the US in 2009. They then played their last show in London to a packed out Camden Underworld back in May 2010, which was pretty much the most insane reception that I have seen a UK band get, either before or since.

I recently grabbed this limited cover version of their debut 7" on Dead & Gone Records, numbered out of 50 copies. I once saw this one sell for a shedload of money. I guess everyone is prepared to pay good money for a bit of Kate Moss.

Unlucky for some, number 13 out of 50.

I think there are at least two other limited sleeve versions of this one, but I'm happy enough to only own this one. I mean, is there anything more British than Kate Moss? Great cover, great record.

Ugh, just wanted to comment something like "splatter vinyl, a plastic chick on the cover and a limited version - what else do you want more" when I first saw the pictures, but now that I know it´s Kate Moss I fear that I may violate a national sanctuary, so ...

I have a split of Dirty Money with Trapped Under Ice on a389 Records in two colors, clear and blue. Anyway always wondered how that was able to happen as this band flew under my radar and never understood how they could match Trapped Under Ice. Now that you make this post saying they were huge in the UK I understand it more.
I used to have this record on silver vinyl with a USA tour cover, but traded it away e few years back. Although that cover was no match to this Kate Moss cover...
