New one from the Dropkicks? Yeah, we approve...

If last time the ‘Murphys were ‘Going Out In Style’, here they’re coming back with a vengeance. Instant classic ‘The Boys Are Back’ confirms this, opening another full-length of beer-soaked fight songs and nostalgic ditties of the big dreams and hardships of the working, drinking man. There are tales of regretted tattoos, baseball, and a dysfunctional Christmas, but it’s no ‘Fairytale Of New York’ – “My nephew is a little twit / Once gave me a gift-wrapped box full of shit” is as sentimental as it gets. It’s the Bostonians’ simplicity that’s most endearing though, and this is a terrific, hangover-inducing return to form.
