Captain Jack’s Army from Sweden started off as a Celtic-punk cover band doing Flogging Molly and Dropkick Murphy’s covers so it’s no surprize that four of the five tracks on their debut(?) EP are strongly influenced by Flogging Molly and
Bon Jovi. Seriously though Captain Jack’s Army stick to a sound very much in the Flogging Molly vein with Dropkick Murphys influences (gang vocals and general punkiness) and they do it very, very well. The fifth track is a might cover of Dropkick Murphys Workers Song – if you’re going to show your influences I say show’em proudly and they do. Sir Reg look out Captain Jack’s Army will be snapping at your heals very soon.
