Lady Godiva

Punk Folk Rock
Germany

“Lady Godiva are a folk-rock octet from Western Germany who specialize in Irish-influenced rock. While they perform a few traditional pieces most of their repertoire consists of original compositions set to Pogues-like arrangements. In 1996 their first album Whisky You're the Devil was released. It was an unpolished and low-budget affair which showed promise but didn't quite deliver due to sub par production and awkward English usage. Fortunately, 1998's Tales of Kings and Boozers remedied those shortcomings as Lady Godiva improved vastly in virtually every category including CD graphics. Their likeness to the Pogues is apparent on both recordings”
