Imagine Bruce Springsteen with a mohawk and a heavy taste for The Clash, then you'll get an idea of what New Jersey's The Gaslight Anthem sound like.
2007's Sink Or Swim came charging into the crowd fists a flailing but sadly went unnoticed by most folks. Which is a shame because they really are one of the best rock bands to come out in a long time. Rocking out catchy tunes filled with sincerity and soul is what these guys do best and they don't try to do anything otherwise. With a solid debut album, front to back, The Gaslight Anthem proved they are off to a good start
