Icewagon Flu: Trouble has a Car

The bio states the band perform “Original Music”, and that they certainly do. Lazy bastard reviewers like me hate bands like Icewagon Flu, they are impossible pigeon hole, compare them to a similar band and move on. You really have to really listen to the CD and take in what they are trying to do.

The Flu if I may call’em that, play a highly original combination of loud Rock’n’Roll, American roots, whiskey soaked Irish folk with almost a jam band feel. The songs are strong and they lyrics are wacky, off beat humorous (and some of them herbal inspired I’m guessing.) If you’re looking for the next Flogging Molly sound alike you’ll be disappointed, but if your looking for something fresh and original you won’t go wrong.
