Singer-songwriter Little Boy Blue mixes classic folk and super-charged punk, then throws in some rock, country, ska and metal to create an excellent example of the current folk-punk genre to be heard all across pirate-radio airwaves. Steeped in the tradition of '60's protest songs and current activist folk like the Riot-Folk Collective as well as the hard-edged punk and metal from the Bay Area Gilman scene, Little Boy Blue has enlisted an excellent band on his second release "Banned From Apgar": Brian Hamilton is famous for his hard-hitting drums with Bay Area punk kings Fleshies as well as his production talents recording at Oakland's Sugar Mountain Studios. Rawbnoxious Robbie supplies the steady basslines from his experience with bands like the Twots, The Lincolns and the Scurvy Bastards. Dan Sherry Dan brings his killer guitar leads from his Iron Maiden tribute band I Yearn 4 Maiden. Julia Klems and Tim Sandberg add fiddle and banjo from two of the best Bay Area folk-punk bands, Thee HoboGobbellins and The Fucking Buckaroos, respectively. Fans of acoustic folk-punk as well as anarchist political punk should be sure to check this out.
