The Los Angeles-based post-grunge seven-piece Flogging Molly are an interesting mix of traditional Irish
music and spunky punk rock. Former Fastway acoustic guitarist/frontman and Dublin native Dave King
formed the band with fiddle player Bridget Regan, guitarist Dennis Casey, accordion player (and former
pro skateboarder) Matt Hensley, bassist Nathen Maxwell, drummer George Schwindt, and mandolinist
Bob Schmidt.
Getting their start playing regularly at the L.A. bar Molly Malones, Flogging Molly eventually took their
music to the road; their explosive and passionate live show was the heart of the band, after all, and the
band toured relentlessly around the world throughout their career. Their rowdy folk-rock punk revival sound
has been compared to the likes of other Irish bands such as the Pogues and Black 47, but the raucous
septet opted for its own unique brashness that defied genre lines. Flogging Molly released its debut,
Swagger, in March 2000 on SideOneDummy and followed up two years later with Drunken Lullabies.
Crafting exuberant anthems to raise up a full Guinness to, King often used personal touchstones -- such as
his childhood in a war-torn Ireland, his father's premature death, and an eight-year exile in the United
States -- for the band's compelling lyrical content. Within a Mile of Home appeared in September 2004, and the band continued to hit the road hard in support.
