Gartloney Rats: Gartloney Rats

January 31, 2010

With a name like Gartlonely Rats its easy to assume a fast and spunky trad-rock band in the vein of The Pogues song of the same name from 1989s “Peace and Love”. The Aussie quintet are not, sure The Pogues influence is there but it’s more Steve Earle and The Pogues or even Johnny Cash and The Pogues with the great man in the drivers seat and Shane riding shotgun on the way to a redneck roadhouse.
