Flatfoot 56

"Knuckles Up" 2004





















Flatfoot 56's Knuckles Up is a twist of Punk Rock with Celtic flavorings. Loud Guitars,Bagpipes, Mandolins and Anthemic Punk aggression highlight this release. The Cd starts out with some powerful drumming and then to my surprise the mandolin kickedin and gave the Cd a special life of it's own. It's not often you turn on a punk rock Cdwith all of the angst and aggression that punk rock is known for and have not only loudguitars hitting you upside the head but mandolin and bagpipes as well. I think thesequalities make this Cd very special and people who have listened to the Cd with meagree as well. Musically the Cd reminds me alot of Rancid and The Casualties with the title song "Knuckles Up" being one of my favorite songs on the Cd. Overall thelyrical content is strong with a great rendition of Amazing Grace highlighting the latertracks on the Cd. All the aggression of punk are on this Cd but with a Celtic flair. Iwould highly recommend this Cd to anyone who enjoys loud guitars, anthemic chorusesand isn't afraid of the Celtic sound to help expand your horizons.
