Anti-heros & Dropkick murphy's - Split 7'' (1998)

Tracklist:
01. Anti-heros - Rich people don't go to jail
02. Anti-heros - Election day (live)
03. Dropkick murphy's - The road of the righteous
04. Dropkick murphy's - The guns of Brixton

Released by TKO Records in 1988.

One of many Anti-heros EP's i didnt own nore upload back in 2009 when i did their discography. This split is with Dropkick murphy's that i used to like back in the days but cant stand today. I thought about adding Dropkick to the site anyway mainly for the fact that the band has members from such "skinheadish" bands like The bruisers in their ranks but if there is ever a band that would put me in court for filesharing it would be this band. Another reason is that it might attract some of the kids in DM shirts walking around in my hometown and those are probably the last ones i want to write for.

Even if my love for Irish punk is as strong as my love for men in leather pants is their song The guns of Brixton actually rocks in a surprisingly nice way. No sackpipes, no accordians and not even a single lyric about working on the docks or drinking whiskey. Its a good ska-influenced song from start to finish and reminds me about why i actually liked this band back in the days.
8/10
The album can be bought for a whoopin' 18 bucks at Vinyl Junkie.

  1. I have a bootleg dvd of their early years, with the classic formation (Mike, Ken Casey, Rick Barton and Matt Kelly). The concert was at NYC. The crowd was basically made by skins. They played "Runnin' riot" by Sparrer and "When the boots go marching in" by Condemned 84. Mike McColgan kept calling Jeff, from Stormwatch, to the stage.
    It's pretty funny to think about this knowing what happened with the band and their members.

  3. $18 eh? shit happy I have two copies of this then. LOL

    On a serious note, I have to admit I have not listened to anything that the Dropkick Murphys have put out in a while, but I always enjoyed their style.

    Cheers,
