The Gobshites: The Whistle Before the Snap

gobshites_the whistleThe Whistle Before the Snap is the long awaited and much delayed album by Boston’s greatest Folk’n’Irish band The Gobshites. Now, while some bands claim to be influenced by the Ramones, some bands wear Ramones shirts, some bands even sing about the Ramones, well The Gobshites manage to have a Ramone (Ritchie) sit in on drums for the whole album. The Gobshites are famous for taking old punk rock standards and giving ’em the Irish treatment so of course we have Somebody Put Something in My Drink given The Gobshites once over as well as Mojo Nixon‘s ode to Shane’s Dentist. But unlike before everything else is original (though if you want split hairs four of the songs were originally recorded by head Gobshite Pete Walsh’s punk band Meat Depressed – written with the Gobshites in mind I’m assured). How does it sound? Great! slightly chaotic, tipsy to sloshed, pub-punk sing along’s with off color self effacing humor…….and oh yeah even a touch of maturity on a couple or three tracks (That’s why I drink, Hidden Meaning & No Fairy Tale)

Standout tracks:
The Evil of Drink
Happy Everything
Cheers

It’s a Pete Walsh weekend

Boston legend Pete Walsh is busy this weekend with both his bands in action. Saturday (June 4th) at 5:00 he and his fellow Gobshites are the main attraction at ICC Irish Fest in Canton, MA just south of Boston. Sunday (June 5th) Pete trades in his Aran sweater for his back leather jacket when Meat Depressed join CJ Ramone at the Once Ballroom in Somerville. And for good measure The Gobshites play The Middle East (in Cambridge not well the Middle East) on July 14th with Richie Ramone.
