Mighty Mighty Bosstones

Pin Points And Gin Joints

Big Rig

Released on December 8, 2009

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!


The Mighty Mighty Bosstones have stuck more pins in the map and pulled more Gin from taps than they care to remember. Over the years they’ve earned the reputation as one of the hardest touring bands in rock. Now they are back with their first full length studio release in seven years. Featuring 14 new songs “Pin Points and Gin Joints” has the band at their fun, exuberant, chaotic best. The rare band comfortable in almost any genre they are also patient, passionate songwriters. Blending ska and soul, punk and metal, and arrow to the heart pop, these songs are the Bosstones at their best. Lead singer and lyricist Dicky Barrett is at the top of his game as a brash cynic, a harsh critic and a crooner with a heart of gold. His voice as both a storyteller and poet is highlighted in songs about family life, politics, war, art, biker gangs, baseball, ska music legends and blue collar stiffs. With Pin Points and Gin Joints the Bosstones have taken their trademark power chord, driving horns, wicked backbeat sound back to the barroom for another round of shots.

It's about fucking time we get a bad ass piece of ska like this released. This band feels completely rejuvenated and ready to curb stomp the masses with this release.

Old fan or new fan, perhaps even the guy who "liked the song from Clueless" this disc will not disappoint. Go buy this and stop saying that "I use to like ska when I was in high school". Uggh.

A lot of ska, not much punk. The last MMB album I bought was Pay Attention, so I figured I should see what I've missed since then. Apparently not much. It's always nice to hear some Bosstones, but I found this album to be a little too content and boring. No real sparks, excepting "I Wrote It", which is classic MMB, a great song. Other than that... Kinda makes me sad that all my favorite bands from ten years ago are getting old and mellow. Decent ska album, decent Mighty Mighty Bosstones album, poor punk rock album.

This is without the best CD I have purchased in a long time, but to be fair I'm biased. The Mighty Mighty Bosstones are my favorite band of all time, so of course I'm going to like the album. All the same at first listen I was slightly disappointed, as it struck me as slow. Now though, I can't stop listening to it and listen to it two or three times a day. There is not one song on here I don't like, but "I Wrote It" and "Death Valley Vipers" are my early favorites. If you've ever enjoyed the Bosstones, then buy this CD. It is their first full length in seven years, and well worth the wait. I even bought a second copy for my brother so I could give it five stars on interpunk. It's just that good.

Thank the Maker that the Bosstones are back! After A Jacknife to a Swan, I wasn't sure if they'd be making another full length. They do not disappoint with Pin Points and Gin Joints. Some people may say it's nothing new.... I say if it ain't broke, don't fix it. The Bosstones are excellent ska musicians and songwriters, and they do it better than anyone. My favorite songs on this album are "A Pretty Sad Excuse", "I Wrote It", and "The Route That I Took". The release showcases a mature band at the top of their game. Don't miss out!

Although I never was a huge fan of this band, I enjoyed this CD very much. Apart from the always present ska-tunes, some of the songs and even the vocals reminded me a bit of that Social Distortion atmosphere.

This CD is fantastic. It's great to see a band that can still manage to top itself after so many years and so many albums. "Nah Nah", "I Wrote It" and "Sister Mary" are instant Bosstones' classics and so are several others from this disc. Dicky sounds better than ever and the songs are top notch.

A new album by the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, and it does not disappoint. This is an album every fan has been waiting for. An album made on their terms. Each song is catchy and very dancable. This and 'Medium Rare' show that the Mighty Mighty Bosstones have a lot to give, and hopefully they don't stop again.

This is easily one of their best. I own all their EPs and LPs and this is easily in my top 3, along with Question the Answers and Jackknife to a Swan. This album is more straight up ska than any of their releases. They have a new organ player that used to play on some of their old songs. Tracks 3-7, 11, 13, and 14 are the best on here. Whole album is solid except for Death Valley Vipers, which is still listenable. Great album to get this time of year. It really picks you up and will leave you dancing around your house like a retard. Make sure to buy this. There's no crazy songs like Dr D or anything, but it has great songs and a great flow.
