The Ruffians: Live at CBGBs

Bet yah didn’t know that CBGBs stands for “Country, Blue Grass and Blues”. CBGBs started out its life as a live music venue that specialized in all three of those forms of music. The Ramones changed all that (and the face of rock’n’roll) forever. So it’s not that unusual for a band with a squeeze and Irish folk influences to be recording a live CD at the birth place of punk. But, don’t worry punk purists, the Ruffians rock hard enough to do “the Brudda’s” proud.

The Ruffians have come a long way since their 2002 debut EP, “The Naked & Proud”, and have developed into a very fine band indeed with a very distinctive original sound – squeeze box and wall of distorted guitars. “Live at CBGBs” is a testament to the band.

Now can somebody tell me what OMFUG stands for?
