Dirty Three

Dirty Three is an Australian instrumental rock group that was formed in 1992. It consists of Warren Ellis (violin, bass guitar), Mick Turner(electric and bass guitars) as well as Jim White (drums). The United States magazine Rolling Stone voted Horse Stories (1996) as one of the best albums of 1996. Their albums Ocean Songs (1998), and Towards the Low Sun (2012) have reached the top 50 of the ARIA Albums Chart. They have spent a lot of time together performing overseas during their careers. White is based in New York, while Turner is in Melbourne and Ellis is in Paris. Ian McFarlane, an Australian rock music historian, said that they provide a “rumbling and dynamic sound” that incorporates open-ended, improvisational electric rock… without the jazz-rock histrionics. Ocean Songs was included in the 100 Best Australian Albums book in October 2010. From Wikipedia
