The Pinkerton Thugs Bio:

The Pinkerton Thugs were one of many bands that helped define the New England punk scene. Their frequently rotating lineup in their early years, included many of their MA and ME counterparts including current members of Ducky Boys and Dropkick Murphys. Vocalist Paul Russo was also a founding member of the Boston band 'The Unseen' until parting ways amicably in 2003 to concentrate on his own projects.

    The Pinkerton Thugs are actually from Kennebunk, Maine, not Portland. Paul Russo is the only original member in the current lineup, though, and the band is currently based in Portland, Maine. Nitpicking, I know but figured I’d post it. The Pinkerton Thugs were and are an incredible band that stood miles ahead of their peers.
