The Dreadnoughts: Victory Square

One word – incredible! Two words – really incredible! Three – really fuckin incredible. You get the gist?. Seriously though, the 2nd release by Vancouver’s The Dreadnoughts just blows away every other Celt punk release I’ve heard this year. Fast, furious and tight as a Scottish Canadian’s wallet. Celtic punk with occasional touches of Eastern Europe (ala the late great Canadian band Siobhan – Ol Jimmy RIP, long live The Fang) that meets the Canadian maritime sea shanty sounds of Great Big Sea – on steroids of course. If your going to buy one CD this year ‘cos your totally hard up then this is it.
