The Galway Hooker Band: Hooker Style

Only formed just over a year ago, “Hooker Style” is their 1st release from the Southern California based band. Most of songs presented here are interpretations of stuff by either Flogging Molly or The Pogues or older traditional. So what do these interpretations sound like?

And I bet they all own big bikes (especially the drummer Jacifer who must own a shit assed huge hog.)
