The following news story appeared on the T&M homepage:
Ex-U.K. Subs bass legend Paul Slack is due to appear on the forthcoming debut album by Irish punk band Hooligan, who recently supported the Subs at the Gloucester Guildhall.
Hooligan’s album is provisionally titled 'Bandit Country', which refers to the part of Ireland which is around the border between the north and the south, but this title may change between now and when its released according to Dave Linehan, the singer and guitarist of the band when he recently spoke to T&M.
Hooligan recorded 4 tracks for the album this summer at Grouse Lodge studios in Co. Westmeath in Ireland with Paul Slack on bass. These tracks were ‘Bandit Country’, ‘Problem Child’, ‘Cops & Robbers’ and ‘When We Went To London’.
Subs fans will also recall that Hooligan played on 5 of the 6 Subs 2011 Irish tour dates in July.
Hooligan (pictured left) are currently looking for a label which would be interested in putting the album out. You can check out the band on MySpace HERE or Facebook HERE.
Dave informed T&M that the album’s release date will hopefully be early in 2012 and T&M will let you know when it is out.
