Formed in Dublin, Ireland in October 2009, HOOLIGAN play old school punk rock with energy and full of excitement. This single has four tight tracks that will get stuck in your head and in your music player.
“No Blacks, No Irish, No Dogs” has tight, punchy guitars then saxophone comes in, adding soul to the song and talks about the racism in London, England in 1954. “Calling Joe Strummer” is an outstanding song recalling the sound of THE CLASH with their ode to Joe Strummer and needing inspiration in life because with Strummer gone, things just seem empty now. “Cops And Robbers” has blistering guitars and impassioned lyrics about crime and becoming part of the system. “Bandit Country” is a song about living in Northern Ireland during “the troubles” and even with the serious topic, they still made an anthemic, catchy song.
If you are a fan of punk rock from the late ’70s and early ’80s that is well done and full of passion, this is your band. It’s great to hear a band that puts their heart and soul in their music and keeps a high standard of playing and songwriting that makes you keep coming back for another hit of the good stuff.
