Who are you and what do you do?
The Dirty Nil. We do Rock and Roll baby!
What products and/or services did Presstime provide you on your last order? How did it help you?
Presstime printed all of our t-shirt designs and embroidered hats for us. They also helped us with shipping products both domestically and internationally to ensure we had merchandise to sell while out on tour.
Where do you source your inspiration for the merch you create?
We always aim to make music that is immediate and in your face and we try to reflect that as much as possible with our merchandise. We always look to have designs that are unique, eye-catching and instantly recognizable in relation to our image and work.
How has the vision for your merch evolved over the years?
As we have grown as musicians our visual tastes have grown as well. We have gone from making simple one off designs to creating merchandise that is emblematic of each new album and maintain a uniform look over the course of a tour or record cycle with some of our favourite artists around the world.
What are some things you wish you knew before you got started?
You don't have to say yes to everything. Trust your instinct. You don't have to do it all.
Any words of advice for newcomers to your industry?
Play as many shows as you can and get out of your hometown. Find your community.
Anything to add? Got anything cool coming up?
Our latest album Free Rein To Passions is out now on Dine Alone Records and you can find us out on tour almost anytime. Check www.thedirtynil.com/shows for all current dates!
