BRASSKNUCKLE BOYS: Appalachian Bastard: CD

With a name like Brassknuckle Boys, I was ready for the usual round of “oi! oi! up from the streets” kind of stuff, and, sure, it’s there to an extent, but as the disc continued I started to realize a couple of things. These songs have emotion. They’re well written. The singer has an amazing voice. Suddenly it hit me that they sound a lot like Off With Their Heads… if OWTH was a street punk band. It’s great!
