Smokey Bastard: Propping Up the Floor

December 16, 2009

Strong debut here from the Reading, England based Smokey Bastards. Rough, gravelly and mostly acoustic folk punk – influenced obviously by The Pogues. Though when they crank the power they can give Flogging Molly a run for their money – the cover of “Tell Me Ma” and originals “Sprocket” and “Boys Who Left The Band” prove that. Also reminiscent of two great but under recognized English bands The Whisky Priests and The Singing Lions. Check it out!
