I was flipping through the newest issue of "Arches," the sappy magazine for UPS alumni, when I came across a mention of Pint o' Guinness. Basically, they were The Pogues, but a bit more punk. And while they didn't really put a huge amount of thought into their songs, they were fun. That's when I hopped onto MP3.com. Because hey, if The A$$ Merchants can have an mp3.com page, so can Pint o' Guinness. However, while they've got some unreleased tracks up, there's nothing from the album. So I'm begging, pleading, and cajoling anyone who might have the tape to let me borrow it so that I can make with the copying.

Wow....that brings back memories. But now that I listen to it again, they were a hell of a lot better live than recorded. Jumping around to really fast "celtic punk" that's being played right in front of you is much more fun than sitting down and listening to a bunch of kids play "celtic punk" in a studio.
