I bought both this and Flatfoot's 1st album Jungle of the Midwest Sea at the same time, and I'm having a hard time deciding which is better, because they're just so freaking fantastic! I must confess that their sound seems to have improved just a bit in this one, but after having listened through both albums, I really can't say that one or the other of them is better than the other, because they both are a good quality kick in the teeth. Love these guys! Check these guys out! They're freakin cool!

This band has toured with Flogging Molly, Street Dogs, and a slew of other punk rock compatriates.
Flatfoot 56 are clearly a hard-work loving, fist-pumping, foot-thumping band.

While one's initial go-to "comparisons" would be Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly, because of their utilization of mandolins and bagpipes, Flatfoot 56 are wonderfully different. Their song writing echoes the bands distinct Chi-town perogative, yet maintains a one for all, all for one mentality (much like their live performances). Tobin Bawinkel's (vocals & guitar) distinct voice is rough around the edges yet still happens to charm and make you smile. His brother Kyle (bass) and Justin (drums) team up with friend Josh Robieson (mandolin/pipes/guitar) to creat a wonderfully distinct sound that, if you haven't heard, you are missing out on.

Knuckles Up is an EXCELLENT introduction to the band, and even a primer into various punk genres that the band hail influence from most notably swagger & OI!
