REVIEW - THE SCALLY CAP BRATS "Our Storied Past" (2015)

The Scally Cap Brats "Our Storied Past" Take a Shot Records
Release date: 31 March 2015
Runnning time: 37:55, 14 tracks


Our Storied Past”, The Scally Cap Brats second album, was released last March 31. The band from Ottawa have recorded 10 new tracks and re-recorded the 4 tracks from their previous effort, the “Don’t Look Back” EP. Regarding the music, The Scally Cap Brats remain faithful to the street punk and oi! sounds. Usually they are more Bishops Green and Harrington Saints than Booze & Glory and Gimp Fist if you know what I mean.

All the re-recorded tracks are shorter than the EP versions. My fave is “Barry Square”, which has got a new lease of life. “The Shiners War” also differs from their previous take (remember that the one on “Don’t Look Back” was an acoustic version)

There are a couple of numbers featuring bagpipes: tracks no. 6 “Take Me Away” and tracks no. 12 “Lonely Days & Drunken Night”. The former is an amazing song and the latter has a Dropkick Murphys twist. As you probably know, The Scally Cap Brats love Dropkick Murphys debut album “Do or Die”, so it’s normal to find another early Dropkick Murphys infused number: “No Matter What”.

So, which are IMHO the highlights on the album (together with “Barry Square” and “Take Me Away”)? “Going Down the Line”, an awesome North American oi! anthem, “Help Your Heroes”, a catchy street punk number à la Gimp Fist, the mandolin driven “18th to 21st” and the opening track “Our Storied Past”.

Our Storied Past” comes in a clear jewel case with lyric booklet, artwork by mandolin player Mike Franey. A vinyl version will be available in Summer 2015.

The Scally Cap Brats keep on evolving as a band and their latest album is a well-balanced collection of self-penned songs.

Tracklist:

01. Our Storied Past 02:37   
02. Barry Square 02:26   
03. Going Down The Line 01:52
04. Two Chord 03:27   
05. Claw And Dig 02:25
06. Take Me Away 02:44   
07. The Shiner's War 02:43   
08. Help Our Heroes 03:49
09. You Never Know 01:49   
10. Yankee Jim 03:16   
11. No Matter What 02:14   
12. Lonely Days and Drunken Nights 02:11
13. 18th to 21st 02:43
14. Dress Sharp, Drink Hard 03:05

FREE DOWNLOAD - THE SOUTH SHORE RAMBLERS "A Novel Fate" demo track

The South Shore Ramblers are about half way done with writing their next EP. If you liked the last one then they are sure you are going to love what they are doing now. Not repeating themselves is vital and so far they are breaking new ground in whatever genre you want to throw them in. Apart from the actual writing and recording they are busy creating the artwork as well. Once again very different from their last effort. They will keep you updated and release a few more demos along the way. Thank you all for listening and appreciating what they do. Keep Ramblin'.


DOWNLOAD:(Remember that Soundcloud has a limit. Once it's been reached, you won't be able to download the song. Hurry up!)

Lyrics for Jenna McLean by The Mighty Ploughboys
 
I believe in all of it ..whoah..in the wee hours in the morning. .Jenna gives me a smile.

Now I’m feeling upside down and I it seems that I’m getting nowhere fast just a matter no facts

Pre Chorus:

She said – when it comes I will try to survive it..said her eyes and things that surround it..i pretend but it still seems so blurry..because

Chorus:

When your just wasting time but you can’t take your eyes away from me

And you say its fine but I’m standing here- I’m right in front of you

And you say loves blind but Jenna cant always have everything


Now I am fighting urge whoah right and wrong start pushing back sometimes my life’s too fast

Was it something I was feeling and now I don’t even wanna ask...Jenna gives me a sigh

Pre Chorus:

She said – when it comes I will try to survive it..said her eyes and things that surround it..i pretend but it still seems so blurry..because

Chorus:

When your just wasting time but you can’t take your eyes away from me

And you say its fine but I’m standing here- I’m right in front of you

And you say loves blind but Jenna cant always have everything

Ha..cause you were some I liked..it could have been something

Get hold of it. Flashed before my eyes

Get hold of it. Flashed before my eyes

Pre Chorus:

She said – when it comes I will try to survive it..said her eyes and things that surround it..i pretend but it still seems so blurry..because

Chorus:

When your just wasting time but you can’t take your eyes away from me

And you say its fine but I’m standing here- I’m right in front of you

And you say loves blind but Jenna cant always have everything

Have everything..

REVIEW - Mr IRISH BASTARD - "The World, The Flesh and The Devil" (2015)

Mr. Irish Bastard "The World, the Flesh and the Devil" Reedo Records
Release date: 8 May 2015
Running time: 52:07 13 tracks, 59:39 13 tracks + 2 bonus tracks


Mr Irish Bastard, the legendary band from Germany, is releasing their brand new album on May 8th, that is, just one day before Europe Day. And it’s clear than the six piece band from Munster is at the forefront of the European Celtic punk scene.

The World, The Flesh and the Devil” kicks off with “Kingdom of the Sun”. After listening to the first notes, I feel that I have put another CD on the player. Greenland Whale Fishers? No, immediately the vocals and sound become familiar. Yes, they are Mr. Irish Bastard, the chorus is addictive as usual and there is enough place for the electric guitar.

The following track is one of the best numbers on this CD: “Drink Another Day”. It’s a catchy song featuring fiddle, tin whistle, banjo, electric guitar and mandolin. The chorus? Perfect: “When Irish eyes are smiling / and Irish souls are fighting / With a raised glass and a raised fist / I’ll fight my way out of this / And we’ll live to drink another day”. First anthem to add to the new collection.

On “Ballad of a Workshy Man”, the boys and the girl take a different approach, a sort of an angrier SIR REG.

Monsters in the Light” is a song with Brit-pop influences à la Madness and infectious chorus. It’s followed by another highlight, “I Hope They Sell Beer in Hell”. Second anthem to sing along at the pub.

Don’t You Walk Away” is a cross between The Men They Couldn’t Hang and Pretenders. Interesting song.

The third anthem is “Fuck You My Darling”. It has the same banjo sound that can be heard on “I Hope They Sell Beer in Hell” and this time Mr Irish Bastard visits the polka territory.

Black Island Ferry” is a 100% Mr. Irish Bastard classic sound and “Captain o Captain” moves again to the pop end with amazing chorus.

Three anthems are not enough, here comes the anthem number four: “That Bitch Drank My Whiskey”. Mr. Irish Bastard at its best: lively, catchy …

All the Time In the World” begins with a female choir and has a Levellers from the late 90’s influence.

Evil Ways” is the last of the kick-ass anthems on “The World, The Flesh and The Devil”. Probably it’s my fave song together with track two.

The standard version of the album ends up with “Grey Grey Grass”, an epic number.

Regarding the bonus tracks, “Black Dog” is really a well-written song and every single instrument has its place to shine, including fiddle and accordion. “Come Out Fighting” is a more intimate number.

The World, The Flesh and The Devil” has been produced by Jörg Umbreit and has been recorded by the band’s classic line-up (Mr. Irish Bastard on guitar and vocals, Lady Lily on tin whistle, Gran E. Smith on banjo and mandolin, Boeuf Strongenuff on bass and Ivo K’Nivo on drums) together with the so-called “Travelling Bastards” Itchy Quetchy on accordion and P and Moe Leicester on electric guitars and fiddler Fingers O’Toole. The album is available on mp3, vinyl, CD and limited CD de luxe edition (have a look to the pic).

The European Celtic punk scene is growing and new bands from Germany,  Hungary, Italy, Belgium or France are offering something fresh and attractive. However, the not-so-young bands like Mr Irish Bastard are still alive and kicking. They are back with a vengeance. The pubs are open, so grab a pint of stout and enjoy Mr Irish Bastard new Top Ten album.


Tracklist:

01 - Kingdom of the Sun 3:44
02 - Drink Another Day 3:56
03 - Ballad of a Workshy Man 3:22
04 - Monsters in the Light 4:00
05 - I Hope They Sell Beer in Hell 3:35
06 - Don't You Walk Away     Mr. Irish Bastard     3:51
07 - F**k You My Darling 4:10
08 - Black Island Ferry 3:43
09 - Captain O Captain 4:06
10 - That Bitch Drank My Whiskey3:11
11 - All the Time in the World 4:37
12 - Evil Ways 3:25
13 - Grey Grey Grass 4:36
14 - Black Dog 4:34
15 - Come Out Fighting 4:41
