The Closet Squatters: Here We Go Again

Chicago’s The Closet Squatters are heavily influenced by the holy trinity of American Celtic punk – The Tossers, Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly. These influences are very apparent on their newest release, “Here We Go Again”. Songs like “Rovin’ Eye” and “Why Must Yah Leave” are acoustic Celtic rockers in the vain of The Tossers. The Dropkick’s influences can be heard in the dueling vocals of “Her and I”, ala DKM’s “Dirty Glass”. Pretty much everything is highly influenced by Flogging Molly, in fact these guys at time sound more like Flogging Molly then Flogging Molly sound like these days on “Float”.
