REVIEW: Hooligan: ‘No Blacks, No Irish, No Dogs’ (Single)


As well as being a bunch of seemingly charming Irish fellows who like a drink every now and then, the lads in the punk band Hooligan take a firm stance against racism and fascism.


As commendable as that is, they also capable of making some really good music, judging by their live performance of anthem ‘No Blacks, No Irish, No Dogs’ on music video zine Balcony TV recently.


Fusing blues and folk elements with the traditional punk sound, the band appears remarkably confident, enthusiastic and passionate to say it only formed in 2009.


Whether the lads were all mates/musicians before is unknown to me, but the drums, organ, bass, vocals and acoustic guitar all work very well together, leaving me anticipating more from the band in the near future.
