Bishops Green - Canadian Street Punk!

 
Thanks to my friend Bats who posted a link to 'Hell In A Handbag' this morning for introducing some new punk rock sounds to me. I already cannot get over how great the opening track from their Green EP is ('Tumbling Down'). If I didn't know it before I would never have guessed that they came from Canada!
 
About Bishops Green (from their Website)
The Vancouver based street punk band, Bishops Green was formed in spring of 2011. The group is comprised of friends who hold a wide variety of musical influences and tastes.

Energetic and charismatic frontman Greg Huff leads the charge on vocals. Guitar duties are managed by Scott Farquarson, the rhythm section consists of Adam Payne on bass and Orville Lancaster on drums and backup vocals.

Their melodic style of old-school punk draw creative influences from European groups like Blitz, The Clash, The Stiff Little Fingers, Cock Sparrer, the Partisans and LeatherFace; to hardcore acts from the U.S. like Naked Raygun and Minor Threat. Not to mention the noticeable connection between Bishops Green to bands like Alternate Action, the Subway Thugs and the Lancasters.

Bishops Green’s music is raw and energetic with a style firmly embedded in the historic roots of Street punk and Oi!. All of the members of Bishops Green have been playing in bands together since the ’90s and this history combined with the groups ability to draw from different punk genres, enables the creation of a catchy sing-along sound that will make sure that any audience feels like they are part of the show!
