Aha!

I was chatting with the big bald Mike the other day on t'internet and oddly enough, he could not praise this album enough! He said it is the best thing he has heard in 3 or 4 years. I will be getting this tomorrow, and canny wait!


Not really ska/punk though eh Dave.

it's not very punky, but there are definite shades of punk. more so on the first album (sink or swim) than the recent one. it's like bruce springsteen meets jimmy eat world meets dropkick murphys. or something.

i can splash you a ticket until pay day if you like. might aswell if i'm getting mine anyway. only if you promise not to pull out at the last minute though. that's usually what people do when i buy tickets for things.
