Nathen from Flogging Molly solo project

Fans and friends,

White Rabbit We have some very big news for the Flogging Molly faithful. Our very own, the one and only Nathen Maxwell, is embarking on a very special side project: Nathen Maxwell & The Original Bunny Gang. The new project's debut release, titled "White Rabbit," hits the streets on August 18th on SideOneDummy Records. Written over the course of many years during the few-and-far-between breaks between Flogging Molly tours and recording sessions, "White Rabbit" will show Flogging Molly fans the other side of Nathen's musical personality. To capture the true spirit of these songs, Nathen paired up with with his father, maxwellvision, who he not only refers to as "his favorite drummer," but who is also responsible for introducing Nathen to Flogging Molly. "It's comes full circle musically for my dad and I, and I couldn't be happier or more proud in returning the favor to him". The Maxwells enlisted long time Flogging Molly producer Ted Hutt to record White Rabbit and rounded out their jam session with Flogging Molly's very own Matt Hensley on concertina and accordion. The Original Bunny Gang combines Nathen's passion for punk, folk and reggae to create an album that will take many of you by surprise.

Nathen Maxwell & The Original Bunny Gang head out on August 18, the album release date, for a two week west coast headline tour. In addition to club dates, the band will be doing some very special acoustic performances and signings in independent record stores along the way. It's worth mentioning, in Nathen's words, that he "will never do anything to take away from his primary passion of playing bass in Flogging Molly", a gig he considers "the best job in the world".

Nathen got me smashed on Guinness and Matt played concertina with the guys doing the bluegrass jam.

the show at wow hall was excellent, I missed most of GO Betty Go, but what I heard was good, Voodoo Glow Skulls were great. the placed was packed-er than I've ever seen it...

DKM dvd?

Great news - though I may be late!
When I went to Warped Tour a few week ago, I went over to the Dropkick Murphy's tent and they were telling me about the new GIVE 'EM THE BOOT DVD from Hellcat that is going to be released next week. I've been waiting for something on the Hellcat bands and it's finally here. Joe Strummer and Iggy Pop are on it...plus every Hellcat band to date. By far this will be one of the best music DVD release all year!

Japanese paddy punk???????

Subject: Re: i just started a community called 'paddypunk'
theres nothing there yet really....
I am going to see Flogging Molly in september here in Portland OR. Nathen is an ex-bandmate of mine!
I am very interested to hear about more Japanese bands that make this style of music!
WAIT WAIT WAIT!!! When are they playing in Portland??? I was totally bummed because I was going to miss the CHERRYCOKE$/FLOGGING MOLLY show in Tokyo (because I have to return to Portland on Septemeber 6th) ... PLEASE TELL ME THEY ARE PLAYING AFTER SEPTEMBER 6th.
So far as Japanese Irish Punk... what can I tell you? CLOVERS (from Osaka?) and CHERRYCOKE$ (from Tokyo) seem to be the two most famous. But there are a number of others...
When I get back to Portland remind me to hook you up. FLOGGING MOLLY has toured with CHERRYCOKE$ before, so if you're in with them, the could tell you too.
sorry dude. its september 4th.

tix not on sale yet.

I have a demo tape of Nathen's old punk band called PBS. the guitar player from that band Mike is now in L.A.'s Rolling Blackouts

Nathen played bass for my hardcore band Joltergiest for a few months- that was a looong time ago.

I have never heard Cherrycoke$ or the Clovers.

I'm putting together a paddypunk group in Eugene/Portland area ( so far its mostly me in Eugene and a mandolin player in Portland ) so if you know of any good players in the area that are itnerested, have em drop a line.

go join "paddypunk"!

Consider me joined! Your little "Flogging Molly is playing in Portland" comment made my fucking 6pm morning. Unless they are playing before September 6th. In which case you next comment will crush me.

But I'll still join up.
