Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this 1988 album from the British Roots/Folk/Celtic rockers. Formed in 1984, The Men They Couldn't Hang released the single 'The Green Fields of France' which became a big hit on the UK indie chart and was #1 in John Peel's Festive 50 for that year. By 1988, they had signed to the Silvertone label and released this album. The highlights of the album included "Rain, Steam and Speed", "A Place in the Sun" and "A Map of Morocco". This expanded reissue includes non-album tracks and demos added as bonus tracks. Cherry Red. 2010.

Format: Audio CD
I must admit, for an obscure album, this one is quite a find, in any condition. If you want a true Celtic/Scottish Rock record, this is worth a little extra effort. Start with the rousing "Rosettes". Each tune connotes a true feeling of rising in a hard-working, blue collar factory town struggling to live, but understanding what it takes to have fun. Each song is a story, some better than others, but the stories are compelling, nonetheless. "A Place in the Sun" tells the story of traveling with no idea how to make ends meet, and the things they uncover along the way. Best story song? "Company Town", which tells the story of a hometown where the local manufacturing facility runs everything, including your life. Best overall track? "Rain, Steam & Speed", which tells the story of the construction of the chunnel between the UK and France. Sit back, listen and learn...or better yet, put on yer kilt and start moving! R.
