Daily noise that works faster and harder than any stimulant
2 April 2023
Last September American/Celtic punks DROPKICK MURPHYS launched their 11th album, entitled This Guitar Kills Fascists. The LP accentuated the sharp-cutting lyrics of the late great and heavily influential (ask Bob Dylan) American folk hero Woody Guthrie (1912-1967).
And 2023 will be as prolific as last year. Another album is canned with Guthrie stories interpreted by DM. It’s called Okemah Rising and arrives on 12 May. More info here.
They just shared a new peppery piece from that LP named GOTTA GET TO PEEKSKILL features veteran rockers Violent Femmes. It’s an anti-Ku Ku Klux Klan belter.
Brian Ritchie (bassist of VF): “We have always loved the Dropkicks’ aggressive
approach to roots material. They don’t need any help, but it was a pleasure to contribute flamboyant acoustic bass guitar. I was moved by the vocal interplay between Gordon and Ken. Mysteriously, the end result sounds suspicious like Dropkicks meets Femmes. Which is a good thing!”
Take a deep breath.
