Poor Man’s Poison – Friends With The Enemy

I think I need to brush up on by guitar and banjo playing and go join a string band. Well thats what goes through my head whenever I hear a good string band.

These guys have been gracing my car stereo speakers pretty heavily over the last couple of month and most likely will for more to come.

Great vocals really get these guys standing out, though admittedly they are a bit younger than a lot of string bands you hear from. Though maybe that is just a lasting impression I have from my less learned past that string bands were for retirees that needed something to do with their time.

I wish we had more bands like this in Australia, which is not where these guys are from at all, so I could just go down the pub and see some good music. Oh well I will just have to put up with greasy crooners singing bad covers like they are gods gift to an empty pub.

Sorry off topic there. And maybe I need to get out more.

Give this a listen, soak up the amazing harmonies.
