Crooked Drunken Sons 7″ AVAILABLE ON ITUNES AND IN RECORD STORES ON RECORD STORE DAY – April 20th, 2013
The past few years of endless travel and life away from families, piling into sweaty clubs and endlessly moving gear & boxes of merch, and living life in various mobile domiciles has certainly provided cause for a much needed break, but Street Dogs is a band who knows how to fight. In Mr. McColgan’s words, “Never Give Up, Never Give In, Never Walk Away, Always Fighting! ”
Last November, during a brief homestretch in the middle of a whirlwind world tour, Street Dogs (with old friend Rick Barton, ex-Dropkick Murphys) recorded these tracks themselves at Johnny Rioux‘s compound in Texas. Originally they were going to be ‘demos’ to work on for the new album… they are too good for that, so here they are!
“Crooked Drunken Sons” has been a moniker of sorts, that the band has been playing with for a while now trying to figure out if it would become a song, an album or even the name of a side project. Well, it’s a song, and one of their best!! Backed up by two equally powerful contributions on the B-side, this record is stacked with that ’98 attitude! An amazing rendition of “I Got Drunk” (Uncle Tupelo)
leads into the addition of “We All Fall Apart”, which is as close to a DOGS “ballad” as it gets. It illustrates the emotional, powerful ups and downs that a full time band like this inevitable surf, and will no doubt progress into a crowd favorite, and hopefully a staple on the set list.
