Anyone listening to these guys? I heard them on Ethel the other day so I decided to download their shit. I'm blown away by them. They KINDA sound like Flogging Molly or something but really have their own sound. I played them at work the other day and the coworkers loved it.. and people typically hate my music. It's good biking music anyways.

I saw them last year with Alkaline Trio, at the time I had never heard of them. They were really good live. I really wouldn't know how to describe them either. Kind of like Dropkick Murphys when they do sing-along type songs.

Their new album New Wave is really good. I would say they are a political punk band but they have a hint of plain rock. I don't hear flogging or dropkick though. If anything, I would say they sound like the clash without the reggae or r and b.

They deserve alot more play then they have

The 'format' of their songs (that I've heard) are very much alike. Slow, speed, slow... just noticed a pattern. I hate that when it comes to bands like nickelback.

Good stuff tho.. also heard they kick ass live. Shoulda grabbed tickets for Starland, but I had other plans.

and bythe time you found out about them, their hardcore listeners are already calling them sellouts.

But still pre and post they've got a good sound.

Their older stuff is real good. I'm not into the newest CD all that much. Put on a great show though.
