Anyone a fan of this form of music? The best way I can describe it is a revival of American folk music with some punk influence in either sound or ethics (DIY). Some of my personal favorite bands are Ghost Mice, This Bike is a Pipe Bomb, Defiance,Ohio, Saw Wheel, Rumbleseat and even (early) Against Me!.<br><br>
You could also include Riot Folk and anarchist folk artists if you want.<br><br>
I can't imagine I'm the only one here who likes poorly recorded political/personal folk music, now am I?

allmusic.com lists some of those bands as folk-rock and punk revival. I guess this is a pretty new genre. Where can I hear some?

Defiance, Ohio puts up all of their music for free on their website.<br><br>
The Riot Folk ensemble also put up all their music for free, though their music is more traditional folk rather than folk-punk. But hey, free music.<br><br>
You could also find a song by Ghost Mice, This Bike is a Pipe Bomb and a bunch of other non-folk-punk related but just as good bands on the Plan-it-X Records website.<br><br>
I'd put the sites up but apparently I'm such a newbie I'm not able to.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/kick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":junk:"> I guess just go to google and type in "Defiance, Ohio", "Riot Folk" and "Plan it X" to get to the sites.<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

I like old Against Me! and does Gogol Bordello count? They're like gypsy-folky...</div>
</div>
<br>
I never really considered Gogol Bordello strictly folk-punk. I usually refer to them as being gypsy-punk but that's just me being picky, they're close enough. Have you heard of World/Inferno Friendship Society? They're less Eastern European folk and have more of a cabaret/carnival sound to them.

hey, would you count the Violent Femmes? I'm thinking no, but they play acoustic and are definitely punk influenced. (btw when I say violent femmes, I'm basically only talking about their first album, because that's all I listen too by them.) I'm downloading some Defiance Ohio right now, it's great stuff.

I don't really think that they're folk-punk. Violent Femmes always seemed more Lou Reed than Woody Guthrie to me, though it's totally debatable whether they could be or not. They're kind of a hard band to pigeonhole anyway. They have a pretty heavy Buzzcocks-esque punk influence but I'm not sure if they're folk influenced enough to be called folk-punk, but you wouldn't really be wrong. Against Me! aren't very folk influenced (especially their recent stuff) and are probably one of the most well known folk-punk bands.

Eh, a local band. Oh, and Mischief Brew. That was awesome. And if you'd include the Mountain Goats in this genre (I would, but I suck at genre-ing), then.. yeah, them too. I'd love to see Defiance, Ohio <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smitten.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":smitten:">

I want to see Mischief Brew badly. I haven't even heard of the Mountain Goats until this point. I saw Defiance, Ohio in a basement show with a friend of mine who's going to a college in that area. The persons who lived in the house was also going to be teaching my friends physics class, she was cute too. Needless to say I was a bit jealous; his college has a lot of good shows in the area. It was an amazing show, definitely go see them if they're in the area.<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

That's pretty awesome. I've been trying to get my dad into TBIAPB, I haven't even considered my grandmother. She might take to it more than my dad.
