Man The Lifeboats - Soul Of Albion

This is the second album from this bunch of London rabble-rousers whose full-throated folky punk will be manna from heaven for fans of The Pogues. It’s a concept album of sorts, with each song intending to provide a snapshot of life on the British Isles. Not every tracks barrels along at pace, but their ballads are tender and right on the button, too. Superior stuff. GM

Released 14 October on Wood Head Records
