FM359 is a side project band consisting of current “Street Dogs” members Mike McColgan and Johnny Rioux with “Continental” front-man Rick Barton. Barton and McColgan are both original “Dropkick Murphys” for those of you who need a lesson in Punkology 101. With the band’s resume and history of working together, as you would expect their latest project FM359 is amongst their finest accomplishments.
FM359 represents what punk rock talent can evolve into once it’s all grown up; an element of non-religious Gospel, Folk, Americana and forever and always Punk.
On January 15th, at McGreevy’s in Boston, I had the honor and opportunity to sit with the boys for a little Q & A, as well as enjoy their intimate setting acoustic live performance.
