Rumors and Headlines (BYO)

The soft white gut of ’77 Brit punk rock looking back in beery wonder to the Springsteen side of Joe Strummer. Raise a pint to the rousing sing-alongs to… uh… singing along! Yea! Put ’em on tour with the Bosstones and Dropkick Murphys and everyone’ll have a good time playing dress-up in their braces and boots. At least they write songs and the singer doesn’t cop any “hard arse” attitude. Why, he’s almost Feargal Sharkiesque! Great choruses, guys.
