REVIEW - FLANNERY "Happy Days" (2015)

Flannery "Happy Days" self-released
Release date: June 27th, 2015
Running time: 39:20, 9 tracks + 1 bonus track

At the beginning of February 2013 I got an e-mail from a Dutch band that had shot a video for a kick-ass song. The band was Flannery and the song was titled "The Epic Beer Song". Two years have gone by and the guys from the Lowlands have finally released a fine album full of Highlands infused bagpipes rock songs.

Several CDs coming from The Netherlands have been reviewed in 2015. "Happy Days", Flannery's debut album, follows a different path, since their sound is not rooted on the Flogging Molly (or Dropkick Murphys) sound, but on the likes of Wolfstone or Prydein

Fans enjoying piping hot numbers will love the band's instrumentals "Brossie" and "Standfast". Apart from those tracks, there are quite a few amazing songs: the catchy "Flannery" with a great fiddle intro, "Happy Days" with the gang vocals and the pipes solo, "Whiskey Games", a song based on the "Hot Asphalt" tune featuring fiddle and guitars and the Ramones-que sing along "Uh Oh Goodbye".

"The Real Musicians" is another interesting number, featuring a well-known pipes theme, and "Divided" is a Celtic reggae track. Even if Flannery are more Scottish than Irish, they deliver their own rendition of "I'll Tell Me Ma". And the album includes their hit "Beer Epic Song" as a bonus track too.

"Happy Days" packaging is a four panel digipack stating the band's line-up, studio credits, thank-yous and band pics. The lyrics to the songs have not been included.

The Dutch Celtic punk/rock scene has broken through in 2015. There are a lot of bands to pick up and all of them have been able to release enjoyable albums. Flannery "Happy Days" is an awesome CD and the proof that Benelux bagpipes punk/rock bands are worth hearing.


Tracklist:

01 - Brossie 3:25
02 - Flannery 3:20
03 - Divided 3:04
04 - Tell Me Ma 3:35
05 - Standfast 3:17
06 - The Real Musicians 4:09
07 - Happy Days 5:09
08 - Whiskey Games 5:21
09 - Uh Oh Goodbye 4:11
10 - Epic Beer Song (Bonus Track) 3:44

SMOKEY BASTARD PLEDGEMUSIC CAMPAIGN FOR NEW ALBUM

Smokey Bastard launch PledgeMusic Campaign for new album - 'Back To The Drawing Room'

Watch: Smokey Bastard PledgeMusic Campaign Video

Join In The PledgeMusic Campaign Here

UK Folk Punks, Smokey Bastard, are back with their new album, ‘Back to the Drawing Room’, which will be released through Bomber Music on November 13th 2015.

The recording, mixing and mastering is all complete, but the Reading, UK based mob need your help with the final push – getting physical copies into the hands of you, the fans.

The album is available for pre-order through PledgeMusic and doing so will give you access to exclusive updates, videos and bonus material.

On top of that, Smokey Bastard have all kinds of goodies available – signed CDs, beautiful vinyl albums and brand new T-shirts – as well as some awesome experiences for those willing to dig a little deeper.

Formed in early 2007, Reading-based Folk-Punk outfit Smokey Bastard started with the intention of being the UK’s answer to the likes of Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly. After self-releasing their debut album, "Propping Up the Floor" in 2009, Smokey Bastard began incorporating influences from further afield resulting in 2011's "Tales From The Wasteland", released on Bomber Music.

After touring the UK and mainland Europe, playing a live Maida Vale session for the BBC Radio 1 Punk Show and countless festival appearances, Smokey Bastard are now ready to release their third offering, "Back to the Drawing Room". With a more progressive approach to rhythm and song writing, Smokey Bastard are pushing the limits of what you thought Folk-Punk could be.

Within 24 hours of launcing the PledgeMusic Campaign for their new album 'Back To The Drawing Room', Reading folk-punks, Smokey Bastard, smashed the 100% target with the help of their loyal fanbase.

The new album, ‘Back to the Drawing Room’, will be released through Bomber Music on November 13th 2015.

It's not too late to get involved with the pledge. Smokey Bastard have loads of special gifts and goodies available – signed CDs, beautiful vinyl albums and brand new T-shirts – as well as some awesome experiences for those willing to dig a little deeper.
