★★★★ On "Last Call," Black 47 s saves the best for last, using roots, rock, and reggae to bring the final curtain down on the most influential Irish American band in history."  Mike Farragher/Irish Voice

**** Black 47 have been hugely significant in the Irish cultural genome of New York and farther beyond since their formation in 1989, so it is fitting that with Last Call, they have kept the good wine till the last.  Oliver Sweeney, Fatea UK


BLACK 47 BLOG

What do you think of Edward Snowden?  I'm talking about the bespectacled gentleman who broke the news that the NSA is keeping tabs all of us.

You could reduce his actions to a simple - "Well, he betrayed his country, allowed our enemies access to national security secrets, so send him up the river for 20 years." You'd definitely have a point.  On the other hand, most great political and social changes have originated with rebels who decide their government, or its methods of ruling, are detrimental to the welfare of its citizens.
