I know who the Pogues are....Im a big fan..you still haven't made a point....if any thing Blackbird Raum is a 'poor man's' of some scottish folk band...but who knows they could been going for the pogues..
Folk punk is for hippies who don't want to admit they are hippies. And trust fundies. I think I'll stick with things that don't have whiney, drunks who can't sing. This shit is almost as bad as that Nazi troll
Johnny Hobo aka Pat the Bunny is my fucking hero. Seriously. All his bands Wingnut Dishwasher's Union, Johnny Hobo and the Freight Trains and Ramshackle Glory are all AWESOME. Ramshackle is a little too soft for me, but what do you expect? It's his sober band.
In any case, his lyrics hit home for me. Almost every single song of his I can relate to on a pretty deep level. Got to kick it with him at the bar earlier this year at one of his shows. He's a really intelligent dude.
Anyways, I could talk for days about him. He's amazing. That's my opinion and it will never change lol!
