LYNCHED-Where Did We Go Wrong?-(Psalm O' The Vine Records-Ireland-2004)

Irish folk group from Dublin founded in 2000, becoming Lankum in 2017.
Dublin Folk Miscreants originally formed as an experimental-psychedelic-folk-punk-duo by brothers Ian and Daragh Lynch in the early 2,000’s, and has since progressed through a number of incarnations, culminating in the four-piece group playing today (along with Cormac MacDiarmada and Radie Peat who joined in 2012). Having spent a number of years performing as Lynched, the band decided that they would no longer continue with the name due to the unavoidable implications that it has in regards to acts of racist violence. (This was first publicly announced in an Instagram posting by the band on 19 October 2016, which noted that the band "will complete all gigs booked under our current name until February 2017, after which we will be working under the name Lankum".)
