Default Crowquill 50.

Yes, i'm starting though organizing it took longer then I expected and i'm not too comfortable with the order so i'm only doing one now, and this one is a safe bet for 50.

50. Frank Turner "Campfire Punkrock"

Genre: Singer/Songwriter, Folk
Released: May 15th, 2006
Label: Xtra Mile Recordings
1. Nashville Tennessee
2. Thatcher Fucked The Kids
3. This Town Ain't Big Enough For The One Of Me
4. Cassanova Lament
5. I Don't Care What You Did With Your Gap Year

This is the debut EP from ex-million dead frontman Frank Turner. I was (and still am) a huge Million Dead fan so I was looking forward to this, as it was being sent to me but didn't know what to expect, but I really didn't expect what i'd heard. The person who'd sent it to me said it was a folk album but it was weird going from him screaming and yelling and using weird and sometimes just plain bizarre metaphors and allegory to settled down singing, but it was a pleasant surprise because this was a very good EP.

Its most similar to Billy Bragg that I can think of. The lyrical topics range from politics, to frank placing himself in the shoes in others to poke fun at certain subjects or group. Its a very versatile EP even just in the five songs, you have a slow finger picked song like Cassanova Lament, to a fast paced song like This Town Aint Big Enough For The One Of Me and the upbeat protesty song Thatcher Fucked The Kids, which is my favorite on the EP.

Favorite Songs: Thatcher Fucked The Kids, I Really Don't Care What You Did On Your Gap Year, This Town Aint Big Enough For The One Of Me
