Live at The Causeway

Subway Station gets 17,199 views on YouTube


RadioBoston, MA - Friday, St. Patrick's Night 1995 — On Causeway Street, across from the Boston Garden, there is a little rock club above The Penalty Box called The Causeway, The Immigrants take the stage.

Outside, on the elevated train tracks, a green line trolley car rumbles by the window of The Causeway as The Immigrants launch into a song called "Subway Station" with the refrain, “Platform pacing on the yellow line, stand clear of the yellow line. I'm just a rat in a habitrail. I'm just a rat, can't you see my tail. Subway Station, Destiny, Destination.”

“Their melodic instincts are quite keen and the vocalist's phrasing is original and chuck full of irresistible hooks. The next Morphine? Pick hit: "Subway Station."

RadioBoston, MA - Oct. 20, 2021 — The Immigrants have re-released their baseball song "Jackie Boy- Requiem for a Slugger" written for the Red Sox to be played during the seventh inning stretch at Fenway Park.

Special thanks to Guido the DJ at The Hawk for playing Jackie Boy - Requiem for a Slugger on the Radio at The Hawk 104.9 FM.

The song is an uplifting anthem and a tribute to the band-leader, Bill Sheridan, who passed away on January 4, 2021 after a tough battle with cancer.

"What a treat to come across this rock song, Jackie Boy. The Immigrants blend a cool melodic, surf-rock guitar, a superb vocal performance reminiscent of Black Francis (from The Pixies) with the sound of a baseball game and a cheering crowd, rooting for our underdog, Jackie Boy. This is classic alternative rock at its best! "

The two songs, Long Gone and Jackie Boy by The Immigrants, were played on the Radio, with a special dedication to Bill Sheridan in between. [Click here to listen to both songs on YouTube.]
