Dirty Little Heaters

Fatty Don’t Feel Good

This should really come as no surprise to anyone who has seen Durham’s Dirty Little Heaters in concert, but Reese McHenry can really sing. I mean, damn. That voice is perfectly utilized on the group’s debut, a 7″ single entitled Fatty Don’t Feel Good, to be released Saturday night at Duke Coffeehouse.

The very nature of the format is perfect for the quick blasts of the Heaters, with McHenry’s voice cutting through the rapid-fire guitar and drums instrumentation. It’s garage rock done right, garage rock done loud and fast. And then it is over. And then you flip the thing to the b-side and do it all again.

The group really is perfect for this format. Hitting you hard and fast right in the chest before allowing little breathing room before coming right back at you harder than before.

In the end, you’ll end up with a gap-toothed grin and maybe a sore neck from all the head bobbing it inspires.
