RUM RUNNER: Dead Men Are Heavier Than Broken Hearts: 7″

Sounds like Swingin’ Utters / Filthy Thieving Bastards channeled via The Pogues. Though a bit unimaginative, it is done very well, utilizing banjo, accordion, drums, and undistorted guitar in that wild chaotic way that characterizes Irish folk punk. I personally like the more punked-out songs I’ve heard this band do a bit better, however. The B-Side is a slightly more punk version of… hmm, a Pogues cover.
