The Rumjacks "Sober & Godless" LP

$28.00

Born of a desire to make music in general and Celtic-flavoured punk in particular, The Rumjacks are an entity rather askew, cast adrift of the mainstream and the industry as a whole, these five musical misfits from the cobbled streets of old Sydney town, a group unto themselves and the music they've made their own.

Since the group's inception, they've come to embrace the oddball world they've found themselves in, becoming part of the gnarled, handmade furniture you might say, drawing from a solid base and pushing, stretching, bullying it to their every whim, creating something of their own. You may make comparison to The Pogues, Billy Bragg, The Dropkick Murphys et al, and you'd be right to, but you'd be well advised to acknowledge the twist these five have put to their music themselves, making it something unique.

'Sober & Godless,' to be released on their own label Black Matilda Music, was produced by Steve James (Thin Lizzy, The Jam, The Screaming Jets).
