Headsticks: Muster

July 10, 2014

While UK band Headsticks are fairly new, forming late in the summer of 2012, their roots are traced back to Shite’n’Onions fav’s, JUGOPUNCH (who contributed Blackheart to the Shite’n’Onions Vol. 2 CD) and their successors THE CLAY FACES as well as fellow Midlands Celtic-punks TOWER STRUCK DOWN.

Muster is much more English-folk-punk sounding then how I remember the Irish in exile Jugopunch to sound and when I say English I hear influences by New Model Army (some), The Levellers (a little) and Billy Bragg (a lot). Gritty, powerful folk punk and just when it gets too English they bring it back home to Achill Island (Ghost). Real nice to hear COLD originally done by Jugopunch again – great song. Great stuff indeed.
