Track: The Roughneck Riot – Ignorance Is Easy
File under: Cow-punk. For fans of The Pogues, The Clash, The Men They Couldn’t Hang, Sharks etc.
Warrington’s Guinness-fuelled punk-as-folk rockers released their new album This Is Our Day and single Ignorance Is Easy this week.
Punk-meets-folk may not be an original concept in this a world suffering from a Dropkick Murphys/Flogging Molly-induced hangover, but on Ignorance Is Easy the Roughneck Riot bring a fresh intensity and cool songwriting that set them above the pack. Get it down ye.
