Entertainment Weekly says Helium ought to play the main stage at Lollapalooza ’95. Too bad they don’t booking the show, huh? 1995 sees the Boston-based trio changing their sound (Dirt is a far more expansive, ambitious work than Pirate Prude ) and lineup (bassist Ash Bowie, also of Polvo, is much taller than Brian Dunton). Other pertinent data: the album was recorded at Studio Red from July-November 1994, produced and engineered by Adam "Red" Lasus.

On the heels of the "Pat’s Trick" single, we’re certain this album will make a tremendous impact, particularly if it is dropped from the roof of a big building.
