The Men They Couldn't Hang
Cock-A-Hoop

The Men They Couldn't Hang were actually named by Shane MacGowan and although their career was somewhat more under the radar than the Pogues there is a similarity in style as the band blitz through ballads, sea shanties, rock, roll and everything in between. This is their 10th album in an off and on 35 year career and shows the band as vital and energetic as ever before.

The Men They Couldn’t Hang
The Defiant

'The Defiant' comes on the eve of the thirtieth birthday for The Men They Couldn't Hang, a band of scuzzy folk punks who make pastoral tunes with traditional storytelling stink of something wicked. More Pogues and Billy Bragg than Violent Femmes in their genre allegiances, The Men They Couldn't Hang have written their records around the atmosphere permeating Britain in the time they were made. 'The Defiant' is their first record since 2011's '5 Go Mad on the Other Side'.

The Men They Couldn’t Hang
The Night Ferry EP

The Men They Couldn’t Hang celebrated 30 years on the loose on Easter Saturday with a sold out live show at the O2 in the heart of London’s Shepherd’s Bush – the band’s spiritual home and where, among the boozers, cafes and squats, they first coalesced as a motley collection of buskers, chancers and layabouts. A successful Pledge campaign has seen them back in the recording studio for their 9th album, produced by Pat Collier and due later in 2014, preceded by this, the 'Night Ferry' EP. Already getting global airplay this EP provides some early delights for those that cannot wait until the full album has been recorded and mixed. Recorded during savage bouts of drinking, mess, ribald reminiscence, raucous recreation and a couple of weeks of bed and board at a South London flophouse, the album features such traditional themes as piracy, fascism, fishing and a little touch of romance in Henry V's invasion force of 1415. It will undoubtedly re-state TMTCH's reputation as both originators and unique pillar of the roots rock renaissance, as well as one of Britain's finest ever bands.  This EP features 4 tracks (3 exclusives) that provide a flavor of the beautiful tuneful chaos that currently reigns in The Men They Couldn't Hang studio sessions.
