The Dt's second full-length record is a non-stop, sweat-soaked, 35-minute rock and soul party in a box! Dave, Diana, Phil, and Scott have taken 10 of their favorite cuts from the before n' after and ruffed 'em up a bit, masterfully reinventing each in the supercharged Dt's mold. From the superb soul-groove of Al Green's “Driving Wheel” and Eddie Floyd's Stax classic “Big Bird” to ass-mashing rockers like CCR's “Pagan Baby,” Roky Erickson's “Don't Slander Me,” and AC/DC's “What's Next To The Moon,” this album delivers the goods, exuding the raw spit and shine that The Dt's have become known for live.

Expertly recorded in the Great Northwest by sound wizard “Captain” Jack Endino, Nice 'N' Ruff also marks the entry of new guy Scott Greene whose basso profundo replaces the keyboards found on The Dt’s debut Hard Fixed (Estrus Records, 2004) and adds yet more meat to the band’s already burgeoning platter. Not to mention that sexy soul-siren Diana Young-Blanchard's vocals are sweeter than ever, Dave Crider's guitar has never sounded dirtier, and Phil Carter's drumming has reached new peaks of precise, jackhammer intensity. Top the whole damn thang off with deft cover design by Mr. Art Chantry Esq., and you've got yourself a record that both shakes AND bakes! Less is more, enuff is enuff; The Dt's like it Nice 'N' Ruff!
