They preceded acts like Flogging Molly and Op Ivy but to give you an idea they create the same potent musical arrangements except with a little more snarl. Four Past Midnight isn't in a hurry, either. They don't give you 40 songs in 40 minutes. Well, sometimes they clock in at under two minutes. But for the most part, their executions are more sophisticated, but no less punk. As the drummer and vocalist Peter shouts on the song "4PM Crew," "We are the 4PM boys. And we're here to make some fucking noise."
Four Past Midnight will support hard-core punk group The Angst at Churchill's July 21.
