Darren A. Flynn Livestream Tonight




Our old friend Darren A. Flynn is launching his debut solo single tonight with a live streaming gig over Zoom.

You may remember him from Mongrel State, who featured many times here on Musos' Guide. 

‘Mountain Whiskey’ is a deep-fried nugget of pure Americana. Check out the song here

The track, which was produced by renowned Irish producer Rob MacLeod & mastered at Abbey Road Studios, is an energetic tune about a wily old man who makes moonshine half-way up a mountain, and is based on a real life character from Darren's past. Featuring a heady mix of banjo, drums and electric guitar, it's a rocking hoe-down from the getgo.


Darren's sound has been described as a modern take on roots-tinged rock n' roll with Americana and Bluegrass elements & influences such as Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan and even the likes of Sturgill Simpson on occasion.


His most recent album, with Mongrel State, produced by Gavin Glass (Billy Bragg, Joe Jackson, John Grant, Paul Brady) had its lead single playlisted on national Irish radio (RTE1). The album was nominated for the Choice Music Award (Irish equivalent of the Mercury music award).


He has performed live & recorded sessions for National Irish TV & Radio and appeared on most local radio stations across the country.


He has performed at several Irish festivals such as The Electric Picnic, Kilkenny Roots Festival, Vantastival, Sligo Live & Doolin Folk Festival, as well as internationally.




Refused Release The Malignant Fire


A year has passed since the release of Refused’s fifth full-length album, War Music, and November 20 will bring a new round of the band’s hook-laden, political post-hardcore punk rock. With the release of the first track ‘Born On The Outs’, anticipation for the latest EP containing four new songs and one album track is starting to build.

"There are certain traditions within the Refused camp and one of the sturdiest is the idea that after every album there comes an EP. This time however I think that we outdid ourselves.” muses Singer Dennis Lyxzen. “Malfire is my favorite song of the record so it's more than fitting that we shine some extra light on that. This EP was supposed to be something that was released before a tour but in these weird times that tour never happened. However, this still a great EP that follows a great record. More than ever, we need music to lead the way when things are the darkest. Here's a little attempt from us."

Covering Swedish House Mafia’s hit “Greyhound” might seem a bit out of the ordinary, but Refused crafted lyrics for the otherwise instrumental track, and along with the video, have crafted a Refused version called ‘Born On The Outs’ in typical, catchy Refused fashion.

"Kris has talked about the riff in the Swedish House Mafia song ‘Greyhound’ forever, so we decided to give it our own spin. David and I added some lyrics for this version, which we've called ‘Born On The Outs’. Make no mistake though; this is very much ‘Greyhound’, but with added lyrics about people who refused to take a side in the ongoing fight against fascism. So, you know, another ordinary Refused song.” says Lyxzen.
