Bunch of Bastards: My Drinkin’ Ain’t Done

bob2My Drinkin’ Ain’t Done is fast’n’rowdy Celtic punk meets Gypsy from the Netherlands. Low, growling lead vocals, all the bhoys on the piss gang vocals, accordion, banjo, mandolin and dirty sleaze-rock guitars with a Bastard attitude. Reminiscent and obviously influenced by the Dropkick Murphys, Blood or Whiskey and the Dubliners and for spice the junkyard sounds of Tom Waits and early Dolomites and The Zydepunks. A strong debut from a band with a great promise.

Erik Petersen (Mischief Brew) RIP

Mischief+BrewVery saddened to hear my friend Erik Petersen leader of Mischief BrewFistolo Records has died suddenly. Eric was just about to head off on a tour of Europe with Mischief Brew. Consolations to his wife Denise, the band and his family and friends.

 

Headsticks: Feather and Flame

Feather and Flame is the third full length from Headsticks who have arisen phoenix like from the ashes of Jugopunch and the Clay Faces. Best described as English with a just touch of Americana and some Irish blood in the ol’ veins folk-ROCK – reminiscent of The Clash – the attitude – but more Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros in style. NMA, The Levellers or an amped up Billy Bragg also come to mind.

In all while not an immediate album if you invest the time it will pay off ten fold i.e. its bloody good after a few spins.

Headsticks Feather and Flame

Highlights included:
What do you want – part revolution, part Rovers Return
Go move shift – The old Christy Moore classic
Every single day – pure punk’n’roll
