The Roughneck Riot
The Roughneck Riot from Warrington, near Manchester, are a 6 piece orchestra of twisted Folk Punk rockers influenced by traditional Folk music from around the world. Since the release of the first album “Night Train with the Reaper” in early 2010 the band have taken touring by the horns, with non-stop gigs up and down the UK and Europe and shows with the likes of The Real McKenzies, Sham 69, Demented Are Go, Street Dogs , Shane MacGowan, The Creepshow, Swingin’ Utters, Talco and The Buccaneers.
“We are reinventing and rewriting Folk music to make sense to our lives today. We write music for people, regardless of race, nationality, age, gender or sexuality. In a country with a government trying to destroy it, and a music industry run by money hungry people who couldn’t care less about musicians, we are here as a voice amongst many in the scene ready to be heard. We are here to play Folk Punk music. From nowhere & everywhere. This is our Day.”
