More magic from Chicago. This time from way up on the Northside. We are long time fans of Kevin Flynn and the Bhoys here at Shite’n’Onions and we are happy to report we continue to be fans. If you are familiar with the music of Kevin Flynn then The Broken Pavement of Avondale is very much in the style of past releases (The Murderer, The Thief, The Minstrels and the Rest and Don’t Count Me Out). If your not familiar with Kevin well let me introduce you – the Chicago River runs green through Kevin’s veins and through the medium of Celtic-folk’n’roll he tells of tales of his working class Catholic neighborhood and the folks that inhabited it – gangsters, priest and politicians. Highlights of The Broken Pavement of Avondale – 5 Weeks 5 Days (about the struggle to be good and get through lent), Pope of the Windy City (’bout Richard J. Daley the legendary mayor) and Don’t Bury Me Outside of Chicago (just in case KF ups and dies this little number tells us what to do with his corpse). Studs Lonigan with a guitar.
