'The Dry Law' by The Last Tycoons
Have a listen to The Last Tycoons' lead single from their upcoming debut album, due out this September.
A bluesy lament on prohibition, 'The Dry Law' offers a taste of what we can expect from the Dubliners' debut long player.
As lead singer Steve says: "I quit drinking and started to write a song about it." And although he was off the booze just a month, it seems the dry spell helped inspire him, along with a certain Rat Pack crooner: "I was reading a biography of Dean Martin at the time and there was all this stuff about him working in speakeasies and casinos as a kid, surrounded by all these gangsters. So I just put the two things together and made up this story about it."
It'll put a thirst on you, for sure!
