  1. GREAT band! After they released the self titled album in 2000, Johnny Bonnel and Darius Koski started a side project, the Filthy Thieving Bastards. The self titled Swingni' Utters record had a lot of country influence and was not a full blown punk rock album and I suspect that some of their fans didn't get it, so they started FTB for those types of songs. They are also supposed to be putting out a new album this year that will include Jack Dalrymple, formerly of One Man Army and Dead To Me, on second guitar. I can't wait!!!
