2nd Wave Folk Punk Began in Canada
The Tossers, while not Canadian, formed in ‘93 in Chicago--not too terribly far from Canada! Their first record dropped in ‘94, which predates Dropkick and Flogging. To me their sound is the missing link between The Pogues and bands that came later. Also, I think Greenland Whalefishers came along around this time, ‘94 maybe. This is in the timeline for second wave, though I feel like both bands tend to lean toward the first wave sound more, so maybe this is irrelevant to your point. Are there other notable Canadian folk punk bands you’d recommend? It seems like the Canadian folk punk scene has a lot to offer that I’m interested to dive into.
No addition to the list. Lost the point of the conversation while listening to old folk punk. Let ya know when I find my way back.
