Brophy’s Law IRE/UK/DK release their all time live favourite live track ”The Bachelor”, a strong traditional and authentic folk punk classic sound with an alternative edge. As the John Peel centre in the UK appropiatly describes Brophy’s Law, ”Where the Pogues meet the Clash”. The release comes in good time for this years St.Patricks Day celebrations.
Brophy says he wrote this at the age of 18 in the shoes of Shane McGowen heavily influenced by growing up watching the Pogues performing in their glory days. They sang about the drink- ing holes of London and more drinking, a great recipe for this bar room classic ”The Bachelor” a song that paints a picture of a working class guy who’s surrenders his life to the devil in the jar, avoids marriage and drinks himself insane.
