Filthy Thieving Bastards

My Pappy Was a Pistol

Better Youth Org. 108.2

Released on November 8, 2005


Filthy Thieving Bastards have returned after a four year hiatus from recording, with a new full length album “My Pappy Was A Pistol”. Featuring members of the Swingin’ Utters and Me First And The Gimme Gimmes, the Bastards’ new record runs the gamut stylistically between old-school punk rock, traditional country, folk & irish music, and 60’s psychedelic pop. Following a run of successful Northern and Southern California shows in the spring of ‘05 featuring Spider Stacy from The Pogues, the Bastards invited Stacy into the recording studio to record vocals and Tin Whistle for the album. Their sound is almost un-categorizable; but their blend of traditional country/folk and pop music, infused with the punk rock sensibility they’ve honed for 15+ years in the Swingin’ Utters, seems to appeal to people of all ages. There is something in FTB’s music for everyone, from punk rockers to country and folksters.

I heard about this band a few years ago and never really checked them out. I knew it was a side band from some of the guys in Swingin Utters. That all I knew. Then I read a review about how Spider Stacey (Pogues) was on tour with them and recorded some vocal tracks on their second full length "My Pappy Was A Pistol". Being a huge Pogues fan, I had to check this out and walla! This is a masterpiece. This is easily maybe the best album I have listend to in a long time. Almost every song is a winner. My personal favorites are "Neverkind", "Mikeys Got To Move His Car" and many more. I hope this project develops into a full time gig. Great hybrid/fusion of punk, paddy rock, folk, blues and country! Get it now!

Some really great and catchy songs. I'm excited to see where this band will go on the next record! Dynamically it isn't overly strong, but you'll have these songs in your head for days!

This was part of a pretty big order. For me and this was deffinetly my favorite CD of the order. I heard these guys on that Fat Wreck podcast as I'm sure a lot of you did. I really liked "Like Jack Dalrymple" mostly becuase I was getting into the Beatles at the time and appreciated the fusion of punk, folk and 60's pop.

To me, thats the most important part of the album; the many sounds displayed here. Its kind of like flogging molly, the beatles and of course the swinging utters all together but it also has its own original sound. The music on here is feel good and seemingly simple but the lyrics are gritty and clever. I can't say enough good things about this album. If your considering buying it, you should. Anyone can appreciate this album. Fans of music in general will love it.

First, let me say I'm a huge Swingin' Utters fan and I loved the other 2 FTB CD's. So now you know where I'm coming from. I was a little disappointed in this album. It seemed to have more of a 60's upbeat feel to it with lots of "wooo-wooo-hoo's" & La-la-la's in songs (Like Jack Dalrymple & Neverkind).It sounds a lot wimpier than there other stuff because the singing seems a little restrained and forced instead of the usual wiskey soaked angsty voice. It has some really good track like Sealed Confessions, That's Life, Bad Afternoon Sun and Back of His Hand. Those songs are all great. Its not a horrible album by far, but I would recommend "Our Fathers Sent Us" over this for people wanting to check them out.
