The Men They Couldnt Hang
The Men They Couldn’t Hang emerged from the busking scene in the subways of Hammersmith and Shepherds Bush, London in 1984. Their unique combination of barnstorming live performance, rich storytelling ability, often rooted in historical and social themes, and mix of Celtic, Folk and Country flavours saw them rise rapidly to national and international prominence where they have remained through dint of sheer tenacity and a passionate fan base.
Now into their 4th decade, TMTCH have travelled far and wide; from Egypt to Iceland, Canada to Slovenia and all points in between, featuring at huge festivals and intimate folk clubs alike. In fact it has been said that they have the ability to make a huge festival seem like an intimate folk club and vice versa! In between regular touring the band has recorded 10 studio albums and seen their music appear in films, tv shows, adverts and even on the courses of academic syllabuses. Up until the Covid pandemic, the TMTCH star was rising again with sold out tours booked and another record in the planning.
Now, despite the tragic loss of co vocalist Stefan Cush in 2021, the band are re assembled to begin the next chapter of their roller coaster career and to celebrate, defend and enhance their acclaimed legacy.
Run Out The Guns are a raucous bunch of rabble rousers, mixing their own music with shanties, jigs and reels from the distant past to the modern day.
