Have any of you lot heard of Lynched / Lankum?



More stuff https://lynchedmusic.com/music/

Born out of the punk scene, now they're mixing it with folk
Can't say I've ever heard of them, Sid.

With regards to that track you've posted: I just can't get any interest up for celtic-type folk music. I'm sure that's a failing on my part but it irritates me far more than it interests me.

I'm into it tbf. The rhythms are different to english music, it's bouncier, quicker. And these traditional celtic bands are always supreme musicians and tight as fuck.

sure... that's not in doubt. it just never touches me for one reason or another. I feel sort of embarrassed not to be able to put my finger on exactly why that is.

I've a foot in both camps with the Irish folk thing, i grew up soaked in it but for a lot of reasons i kind of abandoned it. But i'm surrounded by Irish folk players and everything i go to play ends up feeling Irish/folky, where as i want to sound more country. The bastard son of country and Irish is this irish country band resurgence, which i hate....

I like lankum but my missus would throw a fit if i played the start bit with just the girl singing, she hates Sean-nós singing with a passion.

Can i post an Mp3 on here? If i can i'll stick up one of my attempts...... :ymblushing:

I think so... I just checked and mp3 is defined as an allowed extension but it looks like it will make it an attachment to download.

give it a blast and we'll find out once and for all!

Fantastic that, Laz. I'm going to work my way through em properly tomorrow.

Speaking of folkies at your local... this is Big Mick, a local folk legend, he sings in a couple of pubs I frequent, where the old boys spontaneously sing folk songs

I'vd had a proper listen - I like that Kate O'Callaghan one. Got that country bounce to it. I can see myself getting in to that stuff in years to come. Am half way there with the folk stuff.

Fub, the drum kit that lass is playing in that band is fucking great. I wouldn't mind knocking something like that up for myself in the future. You can't beat a beer keg, well you can, but you can play it musically too. If it's done right it can bring a really nice sharp metallic sound to your stuff. It's something different.

Loved that Sid. Bet the players behind him were itchin' to start a drone up behind him.... :)) It's class when someone can carry a whole song on their own.
