SWINGIN’ UTTERS: Live in a Dive: CD

I don’t need to explain what this band sounds like, do I? These guys have been around for a while. My question is, why they are not as big as Rancid, Dropkick Murphys or, say, Flogging Molly? They came up around the same time period. I don’t think they have to open for anyone anymore. But I guess because their videos aren’t really on MTV and their counterparts’ channels. But I would figure their popularity is at the level of the Casualties. Another release on the Live in the Dive series, a series that shows with such great recording production, you almost forget that it’s a live set. So if you like the Utters, this is another one to add to the collection.
