|Description:||Danny Pease and the Regulators (DPR) has been a strong force in New England for a handful of years. Composed of musicians with ranging backgrounds, their style of "Dirty Punk Reggae" continues to morph and take shape, while always staying true to reggae roots and ska rhythms. With their home base in Western Mass, they have steadily been scouring the Northeast and impressing newcomers with high energy and uplifting shows. Even being described as "A veritable army of energetic rockers... DPR blends ska, reggae, rock and hip-hop into a whirlwind of whoop-ass..." - The Valley Advocate
McGunks music is about living in New England, or the East Coast; in the barrooms, in the dirty cities, in the brutal weather both outside yourself and in. No fuckin palm trees of Malibu or Florida here, no cornfields of Iowa or Nebraska either. Youll hear none of that in the music here. But if youve been in a city and a city barroom, whether its Boston, Providence, New York City or Portland Maine; this music should say a lot to you.
The McGunks call themselves Drunk Punk and its a good description. Id say they sound like early Clash, a bit of Social Distortion, and a whole heaping scoop of Irish tinged sing along Boston/New England punk. With song titles like Three More Beers, Working on Another Hangover, One for the Booze, and Cant Drink Here No More, you might (hiccup) catch their drift. I think a big reason, besides the good songs, that theyre so good live is that they always exude a huge amount of energy. Not the fastest band, they never reach hardcore speed, but theyre always bristling with energy that translates into a fun, lively show. One thing about this band, is no matter how jubilant and upbeat the music, the lyrics spin a bit more realistic, pessimistic take on things. Welcome to East Coast way of thought and living folks.
This is a hard working band who plays out frequently. Me, I cant listen to this without picturing the moshing, the PBRs raised high, the smiles and laughter, sweat flying, the insanity flowing from the stage through the crowd to the bar back where Im usually sitting.
