One of the best bands in Ireland as far as I’m concerned and this is their first “official” release. Recorded at Upstream Studios, this three-song single is gutsy, features a nice cathartic rock riff on the opener and a lyric that has nothing to do with politics. I love the bit at the end when the lads chant the title like a bunch of deranged football fans. I’m also pretty keen on the haunting, gentle third track “Jesus’ Blood”. This is real rock, passionate and powerful. With a proper producer they could be magnificent.
