Biography Dropkick Murphys
“Blackout” by Dropkick Murphys
The uncompromising spirit and crushing energy Dropkick Murphys walked through the triumphant new album Blackout – the group of Celtic punk rock, based in Boston. Taking the best of the bid busy Track Walk Away, telling about his father left the family, and the songs of the simple working Worker’s Song with a great sound of bagpipes, Dropkick Murphys will continue to build a special musical plan, which was launched in 1996 year.
Perhaps difficult to perceive the monotonous sound of the song “Gonna Be A Blackout Tonight”, best illustrates how far the Dropkick Murphys advanced in his work. When years ago, Nora Guthrie, daughter of Woody Guthrie invited them to shift some of its unpublished lyrics to the music of legendary father, the result was a fiery punk fireworks, and the song became the title track of the group’s fourth album.
Inspired by the work of The Clash, The Pogues, AC / DC and Stiff Little Fingers, Murphys began modestly but with great enthusiasm, to move forward, the first time releasing their own records and organizing a tour in support of them. Just two years later, the group noted the hard work and support in the studiiHellcat Records, the new brainchild of Tim Armstrong to the label’s Brett Gurewitz’s Epitaph. As a result, Do Or Die, produced companion Armstronga – Lars Fredriksen, lit the fuse of the powder keg muzyklnoy that soon exploded inside the punk community. An unexpected rapid fusion of rock and roll, folk and melodic Irish deep loyalty to the working class, led to the fact that the album Do Or Die sold over 150,000 copies. Thanks largely to word of mouth among the underground and popularity with a new generation of children who are interested in Celtic and traditional folk music – but only in this case, the music was not only traditional, it also gives you a jolt of brains and a kick in the ass.
Inspired by the overwhelming success of their debut Hellcat, which became mandatory in the collection of every self-respecting fan of punk rock, Dropkick Murphys collectively sent three letters of mainstream radio skeptics and the following year released a new album, The Gang’s All Here. The album presents a new vocal exchange between Al Barr and Ken Casey, who will become the defining sound in the late group, and not just in terms of sound, but also as creators of songs. This was followed by a powerful wave of concerts and tours, which helped to expand the already large group of army of fans around the world.
An ambitious bid in 2001, the single Sing Loud Sing Proud was recorded with the largest number of instruments. Recognizing Murphys’ leading position in the new sub-genre, which could occur only in the heart of Boston, hymns and melodies of his native land, soaked in whiskey brought the group more widely accepted.
