Album Review

The easiest thing in the world to do is to compare this band to the Pogues. Indeed, their music gives the listener a warm spot in an angry heart that has likely remained cold since songs like "The Sick Bed of Cuchulainn." But scratch the surface beneath the tin whistles and percussive, rapid-fire strings and the Tossers have a sound all their own, as well as a political sensibility that could have been born nowhere else but the south side of Chicago. Their agit-prop style carries songs which are long on thought with a rousing punk sound that manages to cram in a huge number of musical influences from noise to American and Irish folk. Sweet, emotive ballads are half heartbreak, half hopeful resignation and showcase the strong songwriting that has a tendency to get buried in the more aggressive tracks. If you have a conscience, songs like "The Ballad of N.A.T.O." will rouse it; if you have a heart, "Doctrines Outdated" will break it.


Formed: 1993 in Chicago, IL

Genre: Alternative

The Tossers formed on Chicago's South Side in the early '90s, predating such popular Irish punk bands as the Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly. Comprising members Mike Pawula (guitar), T. Duggins (vocals, mandolin), Aaron Duggins (tin whistle), Dan Shaw (bass), Bones (drums), Rebecca Manthe (violin), and Clayton Hansen (banjo), the seven-piece band blends Celtic rock, punk, pub singalongs, traditional folk, and a tangible love of beer. The Tossers released four albums — We'll Never Be Sober...
