Pardon my ignorance, but, this exists? I'm genuinely fascinated by such a weird concept.

Yeah dude! It's also sometimes called anti-folk. It's basically just punk music played with acoustic instruments only. Check out some of the bands people have been suggesting.

I love what I've heard from Frank so far but I've only listened to England Keep My Bones & Last Minutes & Lost Evenings. I do love the older songs on LM&LE though so I need to get around to listening to his other albums.

Sleep Is For the Week is hit or miss (its best songs in my opinion are on LMALE), Love, Ire And Song is solid all the way through but also has some really great songs and Poetry of the Deed is less folk/punk and more straight up rock but it's still worth a listen. The Rock & Roll EP is definitely great as well and showcases Frank's versatility.

So similar in a lot of themes, values, writing styles, "movements" etc. particularly between Celtic folk/older folk from decades ago and punk bands.
