Mickey Rickshaw - I'm Sorry Ms. Mahoney
Are you a fan of The Pogues, Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly etc? If you are then it's quite possible you're already familiar with Mickey Rickshaw. If not, you're in for a treat, here's a band that if they carry on progressing like they have been will soon be spoken of in the same breath as those acts.
They got together in 2013 when Mike Rivkees moved to Boston, Massachusetts and met up with tin whistle player Shane Welch. Using a number of songs written by Rivkees whilst he was living in Australia and then Italy they quickly put out an ep called 16 Down And Back Again.
Now fleshed out to an 8 piece they've recently released their debut album, No Heaven For Heroes, which mixes punk with folk to create one of the best records of the year. You can check it out here : http://mickeyrickshaw.bandcamp.com/
This is I'm Sorry Ms. Mahoney......
