Dirty Three is an instrumental rock band, formed in 1993, in Melbourne, Australia by Warren Ellis (violin), Mick Turner (electric guitar), and Jim White (drums). Though each of the musicians has remained dedicated to the band since its inception almost fifteen years ago, Warren, Mick and Jim have contributed their respective talents to a multitude of artists over the years.
Their music has elements of folk melody, rock energy, and 20th century classical music. Their early albums offered many aggressive, ferociously emotional songs, but since their fourth album, Ocean Songs, Dirty Three have gradually shifted their focus towards a slower, arguably more melancholic, style of playing.
