THE BIG DIRTY BAND Featuring RUSH Members: 'I Fought The Law' Cover Posted Online

THE BIG DIRTY BAND, the one-off project featuring Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee of RUSH alongside ex-TEA PARTY drummer Jeff Burrows, Adam Gantier of THREE DAYS GRACE, THORNLEY's Ian Thornley, and singer Care Failure of Toronto band DIE MANNEQUIN, has posted its version of the often-covered "I Fought The Law" by the BOBBY FULLER FOUR at this location. The song is the first single/video from the soundtrack to the new "Trailer Park Boys" movie "The Big Dirty". A video for the track — featuring the "Trailer Park Boys" characters of Ricky (Robb Wells), Bubbles (Mike Smith) and Julian (John Paul Tremblay) on the streets of Toronto — was directed by Juno Award winner Andrew McNaughton. The soundtrack also features a performance of "Liquor & Whores" by BUBBLES & THE SHIT ROCKERS, who include Lifeson and BLACKIE & THE RODEO KINGS member and solo artist Tom Wilson. The all-Canadian album also features songs from RUSH, ROUGH TRADE, APRIL WINE, THE TRAGICALLY HIP, WINTERSLEEP and SWOLLEN MEMBERS. Commentaries from Ricky, Bubbles and Julian are interspersed between tracks.
