Dan Chris ,

Still excellent after all these years !

If you like the "Dropkick Murphy's" you might want to check out "The Men They Couldn't Hang". Together with the Pogues, they were one of the first bands to mix traditional Irish music with Punk influences (they did a version of "Green Fields of France" long befor the Murphys). While their music is definitely more folk than punk, they still know how to write a perfect 3 minute rock gem - like "Summer of Hate" with it's brilliant Clash influences. "The Sunrise" or the beautiful "Rivertown" are other highlights, but really, the whole "Cherry Red Jukebox" is filled with brilliant songs. Hopefully, iTunes will add their complete back catalogue from the 80's soon.
