Boiled In Lead: Silver

25 years into their career the Minneapolis based Boiled in Lead have released one of their best CDs to date. BiL occupy ground somewhere between The Pogues and the Oysterband. Essentially Celtic folk rock – I don’t want to use the Celtic-punk label as I think this would do a disservice to the virtuoso playing found on “Silver” – with an edge meets the world – North Africa, Balkans and even gothic/medieval times. If The Chieftains ever tried to make a rock CD (or Led Zeppelin went Celtic) it would be Boiled in Lead’s “Silver”.
