Flogging Molly - Sentimental Johnny
------------I'm chalking the reasons for this post up to the fact that I just saw a program on PBS entitled "Celtic Thunder." I thought it would be some kind of MMA match filmed in Ireland or something, but it was a concert by the group, well, Celtic Thunder. They had mossy green digi-fog going over the stage and extremely attractive Irishmen singing about nautical metaphors and love.
So I dug around for my Celtic-inspired blog post and fell on Flogging Molly. They're from L.A. but their loud yells and outrageous energy keep crowds going as if they were bred and borne on Guinness. Get "Sentimental Johnny" from their debut album, Swagger.
