MEN THEY COULDNT HANG-25 YEARS!
THE MEN THEY COULDN’T HANG – 25 Years On The Toll Road
New Album : ‘Devil On The Wind’
Label: Irregular Records and distributed through Proper
Release Date: May 2009
2009 sees THE MEN THEY COULDN’T HANG celebrate their 25th year of raising hope, hackles and hellfire through the street corners and country lanes of Britain and beyond….
Coming together as penniless buskers they played their first show as both an accident and a laugh; a philosophy that still holds true a lot of the time. But added to that earthy humour and vitality has grown an explosive collision of folk and rock and an implacable social conscience that has seen them thrill and inspire 3 generations of concert goers with their euphoric blend…
This 25th year sees them release ‘Devil On the Wind’, their first new album for 6 years – and will also see a series of celebratory shows designed to showcase the band’s innate assets – literacy, empathy, melody and blow-your-mind rocking power. 25 summers young – still ferocious after all these years….
