From Los Angeles, by way of Ireland, comes an experience like none otherŠ (though The Pogues and Dropkick Murphys are, admittedly, a good frame of reference). Loud as a car bomb and stout as a Guinness, Flogging Molly take Irish pub music to it's frayed edges, the dark recesses at the heart of the music. As frontman Dave King puts it, "That's what we do to traditional music-we strangle it!"

The marriage of punk's rhythms to Ireland's instrumentation is as volatile as the country itself. The accordion screams, the violin cries but the drums just won't stop beating. "We're basically a bar band," declares Dave. "Any band worth it's salt needs to be a bar band." But the bars may be a thing of the past, as Flogging Molly's audience grows to stadium size. Within A Mile Of Home, the band's third album, will undoubtedly find them expanding their audience even further, as it is their most mature effort to date. The CD pushes the band in new directions, and even features a collaboration with Floggin Molly fan LUCINDA WILLIAMS (on "Factory Girls").

A Flogging Molly show is like an Irish wake on speed. Dave King's confessional verse summons a riotous spectacle, a tribute to the tragedies and triumphs that have brought everyone in the room together for that moment. "I'm going out every night and singing about my dead father," admits Dave, "but the whole atmosphere turns it into a celebration." This partly explains why Flogging Molly's last album, Drunken Lullabies, continues to sell close to 3,000 copies a week - two and a half years after its release date!

The band is currently finishing up their main stage run on the Vans Warped Tour.
