FINNEGAN’S HELL: Drunk, Sick and Blue: CD

This is pretty legit-sounding Irish/Celtic punk from Sweden, which seems like an odd mix to me. The band is made up of a bunch of a group of Swedish punk and hard rock musicians that discovered Irish folk music. They all have the musical chops. These songs are all done very authentically with a punk twist, including some traditional Irish folk songs. If you’re a fan of Flogging Molly and The Pogues and think they would sound great together, then you’ll likely be into this too.
