Bildergebnis für The men they couldn't hang

My oldest brother is a huge fan of folk based punk-rock. Compiling a CD for his travel into holidays I remembered a band from the early 80's we both went for a concert. The Men They Couldn't Hang were new to us like The Pogues but in a different way. When The Pogues played their Irish style the Men They Couldn't Hang played traditional folk music in a very fast way. They also picked up political grievances from the last centuries and played it to us. It is amazing how good these songs work after many decades.

Theirs was the first version of 'Green Fields of France/No Man's Land' that I heard and I still have the 12". Brilliant.
