FEATURED ALBUMS AT CELTIC-FOLK-PUNK RADIO (27-28 MARCH 2015)



Nevermind Nessie "Story of a Lost Generation" and One Eyed Reilly "Barstools & Gravestones" are the featured albums at Celtic-Folk-Punk Radio. The following EPs and singles will be played too: Pirates of the Pubs "Vitejte na palubé!" (2014), Pirates of the Pubs "Single" (2015), The Humble Hooligans "Break Through" (2014) and Katie's Randy Cat "Single" (2015).

This is the weekend schedule:

Friday 27 March 2015

6h00, 10h00, 14h00, 18h00 and 22h00 (CET, Paris-Berlin-Rome time)

Saturday 28 March 2015

2h00, 6h00, 10h00, 14h00, 18h00 and 22h00 (CET, Paris-Berlin-Rome time)

Sunday 29 March 2015

2h00 (CET, Paris-Berlin-Rome time)

There are two different playlists, and therefore every 4 hours the songs won't be the same. Besides, the order will be different every day. That is, if you can only listen to the radio on Friday,  for instance, at 22h00, you can listen again on Saturday at 22h00, since the songs won't be exactly the same.

Tune in and enjoy!

VIDEO - THE SCALLY CAP BRATS "Our Storied Past"

The Scally Cap Brats second official music video, once again self-directed and completely DIY. The video is for the lead single and title track to their sophomore album "Our Storied Past" which will be released March 31st, 2015.

 

 
Song Lyrics:

Our Storied Past it makes us who we are
We have no regrets, just our memories and scars
If you sent us back again we'd it all the same
No time to second guess, no time to doubt the pain
We've lost a few friends as we've gone along the way
Made a few enemies but we're here to stay
After All this time and the roads we had to take
We're not going to quit after coming all this way
 
Chorus:

Our Storied Past, it makes us who we are
Our Storied Past, our memories and scars
Our Storied Past, We'd do it all the same
Our Storied Past, no time to doubt the pain
Our storied past, it makes us who we are
we have no regrets, just our memories and scars
If you sent us back again we'd do it all the same
No time to second guess, not time to doubt the pain

REVIEW - ONE EYED REILLY "Barstools & Gravestones" (2015)

One Eyed Reilly "Barstools & Gravestones"
Release date: 14 February 2015
Running time: 55:00, 13 tracks


Following this write-up, there were no Celtic rock bands in Sacramento before 2008. Fortunately, the situation is quite different in 2015 and there is a burgeoning scene in Northern California. BlackEyed Dempseys debut album was reviewed here and The Pikeys were featured on one of our samplers. But there are other interesting bands,  for instance Whiskey and Stitches and One Eyed Reilly.

One Eyed Reilly is Rick Meagher (lead vocals and acoustic guitar), St. John Fraser (fiddle, background and harmony vocals), Adrian Baxmeyer (bass, background and harmony vocals), Aaron Hendel (electric guitar) and Nick Carvajal (drums, percussion and harmony vocals). Their 12 track debut album “Hoist Your Glass” was released in 2013 and their second album titled “Barstools & Gravestones” has been released last month.

“Barstools & Gravestones” consists of 9 tracks written by Rick and arranged by the band and 4 covers: The Keltic Cowboys classic song “Kiss My Irish Ass”, The DreadnoughtsVictoria Square”, The Charlie Daniels BandThe Devil Went Down to Georgia” and the traditional ballad “Black Velvet Band”.

The title is really good, since most of the songs can be divided into “barstools” (“Beer in My Hand/Woman on My Mind”, “Trad Music Nightly") and “gravestones" (“Building a Tombstone”, “More than Six Feet”, “He Ended His Prayers with Amen”, “Celtic Cross” and “Nothing Left”). The lyrics are really top-notch and there are a lot of Irish themed numbers. But One Eyed Reilly are not a straightforward Celtic rock band, since there are a lot of American influences on their music. In fact they blend Irish and American music with an amazing fiddling and a great drummer

The songs that I’d pick up are “Beer in my Hand/Woman on my Mind” (an American flavoured number with a r’n’r twist in The Wages of Sin vein. Guest Hunter Merritt plays on banjo on this track), “More Than Six Feet” (a country song
with superb lyrics featuring Pete Grant on pedal steel ), “Higher Hands” (the fast-paced number on the album) and their kick-ass rendition of “The Devil Went Down to Georgia”, on which St. John Fraser plays fiddle and sings.

Other remarkable songs would be “He Ended His Prayers with Amen” (a song with a sound reminiscent of British folk rock band Steeleye Span), “The Ballad of Thomas Alan” (a number to be filed together with Shane MacGowan and The PopesMexican Funeral in Paris". Brian Manchen plays accordion, Pete Grant pedal steel and Hunter Merritt banjo), “Trad Music Nightly” (a number about a pub crawl in Dingle featuring the tune “Farewell to Ireland") and the cover of “Kiss My Irish Ass” (guest Pete Grant plays Celtic banjo on this track. Some lyrics have been changed).
 
Regarding the packaging, "Barstool & Gravestones" is delivered in an eight panel digipack. The lyrics to all the self-penned songs are included, together with the line-up, the guests and the credits.

One Eyed ReillyBarstools & Gravestones” is a solid album with a well-balanced track list and an attractive approach that usually cannot be found in the Celtic rock scene. Great CD.

Tracklist:

01 - Beer in My Hand / Woman On My Mind3:04
02 - Building a Tombstone  4:12
03 - More Than Six Feet 4:53
04 - He Ended His Prayers With Amen 3:31
05 - The Ballad of Thomas Alan 5:53
06 - Higher Hand 3:25
07 - Trad Music Nightly 4:43
08 - The Devil Went Down to Georgia 3:08
09 - Kiss My Irish Ass 3:55
10 - Celtic Cross 6:03
11 - Victory Square 3:28
12 - Black Velvet Band 3:41
13 - Nothin' Left 4:58
