Finnegan’s Hell: New Release – One Finger Salute

Swedish Celtic-punks, Finnegan’s Hell, have release their fourth full length release, One Finger Salute. I’m embarrassed to say I’ve just started to listen to their magnificent number three, Work Is The Curse Of The Drinking Class. The question is, should I review #3 or wait till I have #4?

The Gobshites give us 40 wacks

August 4 is the 128th anniversary of Lizzie Borden’s handy ax work . The Gobshites will be releasing the cover of the Chad Mitchell Trio song about her.

Lizzie Borden took an axe
and gave her mother forty whacks.
When she saw what she had done,
she gave her father forty-one.

Andrew Borden now is dead,
Lizzie hit him on the head.
Up in heaven he will sing,
on the gallows she will swing.

Dropkick Murphys: This Machine Still Kills Fascists

Dropkick Murphys have announced a September release for their new album, This Machine Still Kills Fascists. If the title seems vaguely familiar it’s because it’s based on the ol’ Woody Guthrie slogan. The album itself is a collection of new acoustic music set to the lyrics of Guthrie – hence the title I guess. Dropkick Murphys interpretation of Woodies’ Shipping Up To Boston pushed the Murphys into the big time and endeared them to a nation of Firemen, Bros and Soccer Moms.

This Machine Still Kills Fascists was recorded in Tulsa, OK., Woodie’s hometown, and produced by Ted Hutt (Walker Roaders). The album will be without Al Barr who is currently absent from the band due to family health issues. The Murphys will support the album with an acoustic tour in October. I’m seeing them at the Ryman in Nashville. So if you’re there, buy us a pint.
