Mahones: "A Great Night on the Lash" (Punknews Exclusive)

Today, Punknews is excited to debut the new track by The Mahones!

Canada's The Mahones have been staying true to their Irish roots for 25 years now, so they're releasing a retrospective, The Very Best: 25 Years Of Irish Punk. For the compilation, they re-recorded "A Great Night on the Lash," which finds the band saluting the wee rolling greens of Eer'land, the Pogues, and punk rock itself in four minutes. There are fiddles, flutes, and drunken sing-a-longs. Speaking to Punknews, the band's Finny McConnel said, "This song is about the night Shane MacGowan came to see The Mahones in Montreal, and then we went out drinking…for three days."

The album is out August 26 via Sailor's Grave Records. But, you can check out the new tune and album info below, right now.
