LARRY AND HIS FLASK: All That We Know: CD

Larry And His Flask is country punk band that is every bit as gimmicky as all of the Irish punk bands around. The vocals are a bad imitation of a drunken pirate, except for the parts where they sound like Bad Religion, and then they are a bad imitation of that. I know that we’re past the phase of accusing bands of being over produced, but that’s the best way to describe this CD. Larry and His Flask forces different combinations of banjo, trombone, piano, mandolin, and trumpet (plus complex vocal harmonies) into each song, and it’s just too much. They should definitely strip it down to just what they need and drop the gimmick.
