Lead into Gold: The Prodigals and "Alchemy"
Today's random song is by the Prodigals, an American punk band begun in 1997. The band describes their music as jig-punk and can be classified with other Irish music influenced punk bands such as The Pogues and Black 47 in their merging of traditional Celtic melodies with rock rhythms. The band's melodies are carried by a button key accordion with bass and drum underneath. This song, Alchemy, can be found on their 1999 album Go On.
