The Dirty Mother is an act of civil disobedience, it's punk maternity, electric guitar and exploding pomegranates. The Dirty Mother reminds us that we were all born, that we all have a birth story. Commune with Michelle, the mother-hero in this 21st century D-I-Y Birth Rite as she shits her baby out and breathes it back to life, dirty, but definitely alive and ripe for telling the tale - the one nice ladies are not supposed to tell.
