Went to see the Old Firm Casuals the other night (Lars from Rancid's side project), they were pretty awful. Way too loud and Lars delegated loads of vocals to the bass player who just shouted without any melody whatsover.
I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.

I watched one of their vids on youtube just last week and thought it was okay (Lars vocal). That said the name "Old Firm Casuals" is shit as the band dress as skinheads and the Casuals were anything but. Why take an old football name for your band. It's as if that gives the band an authentic football hooligan feel but it's just so dumb.

Agreed, I think he's trying too hard with all that, it comes across as naff. There is a track with a sampled "Who are ya?" football chant and it just makes me cringe.

Not sure but the Old Firm Casuals seem to be taking priority these last few years.

That Libertines line about an Englishman in a baseball cap is how I feel about Americans who don’t really understand Football Culture but try to mimic the trappings.

That line always makes me smile especially as it's produced by one Mick Jones an Englishman renowned for wearing baseball caps with BAD.
