TK # 4 - Ike Reilly Assassination - We Belong To The Staggering Evening (2007)

Wedding image-a-minute profane, cocky street poetry to firecracker riffs with a big ol’ heap of punk attitude, Ike Reilly recalls an unholy alliance of Bob Dylan fronting The Plimsouls. Any disc that features the boys gone wild rave-up of “When Irish Eyes Are Burning”, the anti-war lament “Broken Parakeet Blues” or the stimulant-cataloguing, brain coagulating sing-a-long “Valentine’s Day in Jaurez” just seems too good to go unheard.
