Swingin’ Utters - ‘Dead Flowers, Bottles, Bluegrass and Bones’ Album Review
Swingin' Utters
Label: Fat Wreck Chords
  • 4/5
Reviewed by HeavenlyDevil

After a brief hiatus, the Swingin' Utters are at it again! But a great album laced with violin, accordion, piano, and power chords, is nothing unusual for the bay area kings of street punk.


"Dead Flowers, Bottles, Bluegrass and Bones" is as assorted musically as the album title implies. There is a vibrant mix from the traditional aggressive punk rock to the melodic, poppy Celtic folk, and over to the sounds of the lamenting pub patron.


Blag Dahlia of the Dwarves pulled a chair up to the table and put on his producer hat to join the band for it's fourth full length release on Fat Wreck Chords. The combination is a deadly one, Dahlia pulling out of the Utters yet another masterpiece for the working class rocker to enjoy!
