Adrian Edmondson and The Bad Shepherds

I recently found out about Ade Edmondson's band, 'The Bad Shepherds'. They play punk songs on folk instruments. It's no joke, they're really good : ) I'm hoping to encourage people to listen to them. I feel like I'm doing my duty as a fan then : D If you like the idea of a more relaxed version of some great songs by bands like The Sex Pistols, The Undertones, The Jam and The Clash, their site is:

I'm hoping I'll get to see them live this year. If anyone's seen them, any feedback? Thanks :)

P.S. I know I've sort of advertised for them here, but I promise you I'm not a spammer x

Probably...the one you posted on your Rik + Ade blog? I'm pretty sure it was them, yeah : ) Here's a link to a page on their site, just double click on the songs you want to hear in the box and they play all the way through. The whole album is on there if you fancy a listen x
My personal favourite has to be 'Down in the Tube Station at Midnight'. It's a fantastic cover.
