The Tossers - Gloatin' And Showboatin' : Live On St. Patrick's Day
Just in time as always for St. Patrick's Day, the Tossers dig into to the age-honored drunken bag of spirit raising and fist pumping odes to liquor, friendship and home sweet home. They have yet to stumble, or tinker with what has gotten them this far, and "Gloatin and Showboatin" is no exception. If you like this band, and this genre, you know precisely what to expect, and you get it.
Jumping Celtic punk mixed with wistful longing ballads, this set's highlights include
"Seven Drunken Nights"; "The Crock of Gold"; "I've Persued Nothing" and the soon to be immortal in all frat and public houses, "No Loot, No Booze, No Fun.
Snotty but loyal to tradition, Tossers deliver their goods with sharp spiky rhythms and staccato bravado vocals. This set not be a shocking advancement in Celtic rock, but that is the point. Tradition and trusted fellowship are essentials of the meal presented here, and it is a comforting rocker indeed.
