Lenny and The Piss Poor Boys reissued

Suburban Home Records will release several great albums later in 2011. Micah Schnabel and Have Gun, Will Travel are getting ready to release their new albums, but let’s begin with this amazing reissue. Lenny and The Piss Poor Boys from Boston released one amazing album mid 00s, but it’s been out of print for a long while. I only have a lame digital version myself and I’m thrilled that I’m finally able to buy it. It really is a great country album. Traditional country and punk fits well together. Sure there are many punk rockers going country these days and I really like many of them. But only a couple of them can reach the same heights as Lenny and The Piss Poor Boys reached on their debut album. Reissue should hit the stores late november, but you can already preorder it from Suburban Home. You can listen to two great songs from the album on this little sampler.

Lenny & The Piss Poor Boys

Tonight I fell in love with Lenny & The Piss Poor Boys and I want to share that with you. I just love this stuff. The bio says “Hailing from Boston, Massachusetts, Lenny and the Piss Poor Boys play country & western the way the Clash or the Ramones might have if they’d grown up on Waylon Jennings instead of the New York Dolls”. I say “it’s freakin awesome”. You can make up your mind by listening to it.

Just got back to Turku today. This week will probably be quite busy, but the albums of the year list should arrive to this blog sometime next week. There’s also some news bits that I need to write soon-ish.
