THE Gakk - Off The Fags & Booze
Listing amongst their influences the likes of SLF, The Clash, Sex Pistols, Subhumans, Dead Kennedys etc, The Gakk are a 5 piece band from Dundalk, Ireland. They're a melodic street punk outfit who also incorporate elements of ska and reggae and who are renowned for their energetic live shows. They released an album in 2010 called This Band Will Self-Destruct.
Amongst their other releases was the single Giving Me Away which you can snap up as a free download here : https://thegakk.bandcamp.com/releases
The track I'm posting below was on their debut ep (The Gakk EP) and is also the song they finish their live shows with. Available to d/l here : https://www.reverbnation.com/thegakk this is Off The Fags And Booze. I played this song on last night's Just Some Punk Songs show and the guys in the chatroom were telling me it brought to mind the Dead Kennedys (Too Drunk To Fuck & Police Truck were both mentioned). See what you think.....
