Black Friday: Live at Maker

Flogging Molly is an obvious huge influence on Black Friday – the bands name of course and 4 of the 12 songs on ‘Live at Maker” are Flogging Molly covers. Combinations of MacGowan and The Popes/Pogues are the other big influence with 3 covers (5 if you count “Whiskey in the Jar” and “Star of the County Down”). The Clash & The Mahones (great version of “Drunken Lazy Bastard”) are also covered. “Go to Go” is the only original (I thinks it’s an original anyway) and it’s a great one that isn’t out of place on a collection of classics the band covered. Just next time some more originals if the rest are as good.
