There's not been a lot of country hoedown in the modern folk revisiting, maybe tainted by thoughts of the raggle-taggle element of the Levellers. The first Chester band we've come across since Mansun, Shy And The Fight throw a lot of instrumentation and a big vocal crescendo at it in order to break down such preconceptions, not to mention a way with earwormish hooks and a sharp lyrical ire aimed at old home town ways. You may think of early Frank Turner, possibly Bright Eyes when Conor's in the jig mood.
this is such a good song - at last, something to leave the house for!
