Hudson Falcons - Desperation and revolution

Band/artist - Hudson Falcons
Genre(s) - Punk 'n' roll
Origin - United States of America (New Jersey)
Album -
Desperation and revolution
Year of release - 2000

Taking an amalgam of rock and punk influences and chewing it up into something hard-hitting they call working class rock 'n' roll, the Hudson Falcons are a crusty bunch from New Jersey with obvious Irish heritage. They're named in commemoration of the Hudson Valley Strikes (or just for living in Hudson) and could sure land a plane on the river if they had a flying picket (yeah, nevermind). On Desperation and Revolution you can expect some politicised, high-octane rock and roll, fuelled by beer, social discontent and the desire for freedom like any good punk album should be. Notable tracks are GLC which is apparently a Menace cover (I just found out today); Free Lori about the political prisoner Lori Berenson, and a reworking of the Irish traditional Come out Ye Black and Tans.
