“Wish You Were Beer”. The Poxy Boggards have done it again. Publicly. Another album has been released to the world, and this newest addition displays even more refined harmonies, musical accompaniment, and sound processing capabilities. *Thumbs up Angryfolk.com.* And yes, they bring back the dirty nerdy ear candy that fans know, love, and want more of.
After the wonderfully delightful opening sea-shanty drinking tune, “Drink The Night Away”, the album slowed down for a few more traditional songs, which were still brilliantly done. I had to revert back to the iTunes album playlist to see how long a person had to wait for the first “explicit” song to come along.
Ah, there it is. Track 7’s “I Love You Beer” will get you going down to that happy Boggard place.
The Poxy Boggards have gained much of their fame from their NC-17 material, yet they seem to be displaying a more sensitive side with original songs of love and loss. “Why Are You Cryin’” is a heartfelt song (despite its uptempo beat), and might still be a real tear-jerker if you have lost a loved one, whether from life’s swift hand or in the line of noble duty.
By far, the public service announcement “Don’t Drink And Joust” is a hilarious contribution, and while you might not actually be cited as described, the advice is nonetheless well-taken. It’s nice to know that there are others out there having dealt with this issue. One can sincerely hope that a music video will come from this song.
The rendition of “She Moved Through The Fair” is an elegant re-creation of the original Irish folk song. The Boggards have captured a haunting sound for this sad story of a lost love, and the dream that followed it.
Overall, The Poxy Boggards have turned out another amazing piece of work, blending their vocal and musical talents to produce a deep and rich sound. The quality keeps getting better and better, and with their original gritty albums still holding a fond place in the heart, it’s going to be exciting to see how they further progress.

Here is a video for the song “I Wear No Pants” from the “Liver, Let Die” album. If it sounds slightly familiar, a rendition of it was used in the Docker’s ad that aired during Super Bowl a couple of years ago.
