Another amazing masterpiece
on 15 November 2010
After the brilliant cover versions of classic punk era on 'Yan, Tyan, Tethera, Methera' it it's hard to produce a second album that comes anywhere near the same standard.
All I can say is 'By Hook or By Crook' not only meets this standard, it's surpasses it. None of the tracks are sub-standard to the originals, they only compliment them and, dare I say, better some.
This blend of Irish style folk with the raw (and in some case not so raw) lyrics of the punk bands produces a sound that is melodious and, being able to hear the lyrics, thought provoking.
The star track must be 'Ever Fallen in Love with Someone (You Shouldn't've).
If you are a fan of punk and folk this is a must for any collection.
