REVIEW - FIRKIN "WHUP!" Pump Jump Records 2010



Firkin “Whup!”, Pump Jump Records Cat. No. PJR20101
Release date: November 2010
Running time: 41:47, 14 tracks

Firkin’s debut album, “Firkinful of Beer”, was one of the best albums released in 2009.Firkin had a new sound, something different from any other band. However, the CD was mainly a traditional songs and Flogging Molly covers album. Then the big questions were if they could keep that high level and write more original songs.

The answers to those questions is “Whup!”, Firkin’s brand new album. What can be heard at “Whup!”? More metal, more flutes, more fiddle and more singer antics. Six excellent self-penned songs and a bunch of traditional and cover songs re-worked by the band. Then, the answers to the previous questions are… Yes, they’ve done it again. The traditional and the cover songs are top-notch and their own material is better than expected.

The best songs are maybe “Sailing Away” (a great guitar, flute and fiddle work), “Beer Almighty” (excellent whistling in a song that could rival with Flogging Molly), “Keep on Drinking” (good drums, guitar, whistle and fiddle in a song that reminds Lady Godiva’s best moments) and “Highland Games” (Imagine The Bothy Band were abducted by Judas Priests)

Some traditional covers stand out too:

Whup! Jamboree”, the track that opens the album, a song that proves that Firkin has also a British Folk-Rock side (a wildest Pressgang). A British Folk Rock side? Sure, they have also covered a Fairport Convention’s number ("Crazy Man Michael").

Beggarman”, a high speed version. Till now my favourite version was that of Great Big Sea, but I will have to think over that.

Lord of the Dance”: great guitar riffs, Peter’s usual highest level flute and that Pachelbel’s Canon clip fiddling.

Monto”. The best traditional cover of “Whup!”. Other bands could play that song in a new way, but they won’t make it better than Firkin.

Firkin musicians know exactly were they want to go. So “Whup!” is the logical step in their evolution. The band is growing fast (two albums in two years), they have improved both their sound and their horizons and everybody admits now that they are at the forefront of the European paddypunk scene.

6) RATHKELTAIR (Jacksonville Beach, Florida, U.S.A.)

After having posted the review of Prydein "Heads Up" I got an e-mail from James telling me this:


"The BEST bagpipe rock band I have heard and seen live is RATHKELTAIR.If you have never heard of them,you need too.Neil anderson is an amazing bag piper.They call him the Jimi hendrix of the bag pipes. (...).This band is the best I have found.He is one of the founding members of the group Seven Nations."

So I tried to get some free mp3s and I found only this one at Celticmp3s.com

"Rathkeltair (rath-KELT-ur) is one of North America's premier Celtic rock bands. Based in Jacksonville Beach, Florida and touring full-time since 2003, Rathkeltair delivers one of the most energetic, entertaining, audience-friendly shows you will see anywhere.

Bringing together three formidable multi-instrumentalists from Ireland, England and America, Rathkeltair combines a rare ability to play authentic Celtic music to the highest standards with a pop sensibility that makes their music completely accessible to all ages.

Available as an acoustic power trio, or a full-blown electric quartet (w/ bassist) or quintet (bassist and fiddler), Rathkeltair can easily tailor a show to any size or type of venue. No matter which version they bring, high energy and extraordinary musicianship are standard features! Every Rathkeltair performance is a stand-alone, unique, must-see event.

REVIEW : THE ROUGHNECK RIOT "NIGHT TRAIN WITH THE REAPER" (2010)




The Roughneck Riot “Night Train with The Reaper”, Self-released,
Released date: 2010
Running Time: 35:40, 10 tracks


2010 has been a great year for Warrington’s finest, The Roughneck Riot: gig in London with Smokey Bastard, gigs with The Mahones, their own Dutch tour, one song included in the Tribute to The Mahones album (“Across the U.S.A.”) and finally their long awaited debut album “Night Train with the Reaper

The English sextet consisting of Caitlin Costello (banjo), Jade Franklin (accordion), Matty Humphries (mandolin and Lead vocals), Simon Cowley (drums), Ryan Taylor (bass, vocals) and Chris Green (lead guitar, vocals) has released a 10 track album full of self-penned songs, a risk that not many bands are ready to take.

With that classic Pogues-ish line-up (even if no tin whistle is played on the album), it is not strange that The Roughneck Riot sound reminds that of The Pogues and The Mahones. However, when the album is listened several times, other interesting elements come to light, particularly the lyrics, a universe with merges both Pogues’ and The Men They Couldn’t Hang’s worlds.


A Night Train with the Reaper” is a great opener, which is related both musically and lyrically with The PoguesBoat Train”:

“Another pint and we’ll be laughing, another hour and we’ll be dead”,
And if people still ain’t singing, they’ll be puking up instead,
“How the hell am I still alive” is what you start to think
You were on the night train with the Reaper,
But all he does is drink”

Track no. 2, “Ghosts of the Bay”, sounds as if The Dreadnoughts were singing a song written by Shane MacGowan. Good stuff. It’s followed by “Early Morning, Broken Glass”, which is the most “Mahones” song in the album.

But for me the most interesting material comes after these three tracks because the influences are not so obvious: “Mutiny”, the best song together with “Gamblin’ Days”, a top-notch song with a great sailor lyrics. This song could have been included in TMTCHWaiting for Bonaparte” or “Silver Town” and this would be a folk-punk classic now. I’m happy that The Roughneck Riot has written it.

Need I Remind You Boys That You’re in Hell” has also The Roughneck Riot’s stamp on it: a well balanced mix of accordion, mandolin and banjo and good lyrics.

Track no. 6, “Gamblin’ Days” is my favourite track, a song whose level is similar to the best Killigans and Tossers songs. A line of the songs says: “better make and end to those gambling days”. I hope that the boys don’t make and end to this kind of songs and more “Gambling Days” can be heard in their future albums.

The next number “Running on Empty” makes you think of The Waterboys at their quietest moments, but then the accordion takes control of the song and it goes in a different direction.

Track no. 8 is another strong track, “Downing the Days”, a song inspired by The PoguesHell’s Ditch” album.

“And we were downing the drinks,
Downing the days
Down on our luck in all sorts of ways
Stuck in the middle the only way is down”

Travellin’ Man” shows a different side of the band, an REM sounding song.

And the album ends with another superb song, “Banished”, another sample of The Roughneck Riot's personality.

Regarding the packaging and design, hats-off to The Roughneck Riot: excellent digipack with an 8 pages booklet, all the lyrics and credits and a wonderful artwork made by Brian Whelan (if you enjoy The Levellers early albums’ artwork, you will love this)

The Roughneck RiotNight Train with The Reaper” fills the gap that Neck and BibleCode Sundays have left: it is the bridge that connects the Celtic punk made in the British Isles with the one that is made on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean.

01 – Night Train with The Reaper 3:22
02 - Ghost of the Bay 2:23
03 – Early Morning, Broken Glass 4:13
04 – Mutiny 2:54
05 – Need I Remind You Boys, That You’re in Hell 4:18
06 – Gambling Days 2:48
07 – Running on Empty 4.37
08 – Downing the Days 2:57

REVIEW - DIE DOEDELSAECKE "CRASHTEST'89" (2010)


Die Doedelsäcke "Crashtest'89" Punk.de, Punk 046

Release Date: 2010
Running Time: 41:43, 14 tracks

The biggest surprise of the year! I had heard Die Dødelsäcke´s previous albums (“Durst 609”, 2002 and “Herrengedeck”, 2006) and I could not imagine that the follow-up would be so good. In fact, I have included “Crashtest’89” in my 2010 Top Ten list.

Die Dødelsäcke have done it, mixing The Real McKenzies and Die Toten Hosen they have got their own blend. Maybe “Crashtest’89” is not a Single Malt, but it’s a great Blend.

The album begins with Intro, a bagpipe tune played in the traditional style which is linked to the next track, 20 Jahre Kaperfahrt, a song whose Real McKenzies influences are quite obvious.

The following number, Opa Kneipen starts with a shout, an excellent catchy punk song with tin whistle and pirate/drunken vocals in Die Toten Hosen style. One of my favourite tracks.

Ode and den Spass is a song whose music is that of The Rising of the Moon and Pub Girl’s music is that of I’ll Tell Me Ma. The lyrics are quite funny, a Boy meets Girl at the Pub, they spend the night together and when the boy wakes up he is really astonished when he sees what the girl is.

Theodor is another pipes song, whose music is traditional, that I have really enjoyed.

The next song is Das ist Punk. The style is not Celtic, but American: banjo, harmonica. A Johnny Cash song that turns into a punk one.

Rentner is another punk song that shines: a mandolin-driven song with Die Toten Hosen and Peter and The Test Tube Babies influences about the life of the people who got their retirement.

4 Gläser Whisky seems a shanty at the beginning, because of the accordion and the seagulls. But when you think that it´s going to be a song similar to The Pogues Navigators, it becomes a Dropkick Murphys’ song, a fastest Forever. Four glasses of Whisky, you know the story …

Das Gegenteil is a German style punk, a fast song with tin whistle.

Zwei Wege, great bagpipes punk similar to Bastards on Parade. Imagine this was sung in English, it would be a classic of the genre.

Pub Boy. Do you remember Pub Girl? This is the girl’s vision. Excellent mandolin and guitars in a song that could be included in any Toy Dolls or MaccLads album.

Zu Spät (Too Late) is a quiet tin whistle song in which the pipes burst at the end.

Niko MacMohr, another superb pipes song, dedicated to the late Niko MacMohr, the band’s former piper. Black Tartan Clan or Pipes and Pints at their best. The outro, a traditional tune, will sound familiar (Pipes and Pints When the Pipers Play)

Ah, and the CD design is high quality: a 12 pages booklet, a band's sticker and a couple of dice inside the jewel case.

My dream now: that these guys decide to sing in English in their next album. But not a covers albums like Die Toten HosenLearning English”, but their own songs. I will open the jewel case and throw the dice, who knows, perhaps I will be lucky ...


Tracklist:

01 - Intro 02:11
02 - 20 Jahre Kaperfahrt 04:24

REVIEW - PRYDEIN "HEADS UP" (2010)


Prydein "Heads Up" Kynsfolk Records KRAD004
Release date: 2010
Running Time: 41:58, 12 tracks

Which is the best Bagpipes rock band in the USA? Maybe Prydein, the band from Vermont which has released their third album in 2010, “Heads Up”. After “Loud Pipes Saves Lives”, this is an excellent come back. Prydein consists of four great musicians, Aron Garceau (vocals, guitar, mandolin and keyboards), Iain MacHarg (bagpipes, pennywhistle), Andy Smith (bass) and Caleb Bronz (drums). The band is really tight and all of them shine, because all the instruments are integrated in the best possible way. The selection of the tunes, the arrangements and the structure of the set of tunes are perfect, at least I am not able to say that a tune in the middle sounds out of place.

Most of the tracks are still instrumentals, but there are several songs, a couple of standards, Loch Lomond and Whiskey You’re the Devil, a J.Geils Band Centerfold cover and an original whose lyrics were found in the February 1913 edition of “The Vermonteer”. OK, there are some short lines on tracks such as Devil’s in the Kitchen and Feelin’ Alright, but they are mainly set of tunes.

The track that opens the album is Devil’s in the Kitchen and after having heard it, you want more.

The next number is Loch Lomond. A good version.

Track no. 3 is Thymes Changes, a set of tunes that features a Jig from Galicia (Spain).

Centerfold, the J.Geils Band cover gets the Prydein treatment.

The Drunken Piper is another set of tunes that shows you why Prydein are at the top of the Bagpipes Rock bands.

The music from track no. 6, Longing for the Homeland, has been written by Aron Garceau, who is a Led Zeppelin fan. However, IMHO, it is not as interesting as other tracks.

The following track is ¼ Short. Three tunes from different pipers, PM J.MacLeod, PM William Robb and Prydein’s own piper Iain MacHarg. As I have said previously these guys know how to choose the best tunes and how to arrange them.

The standard Whiskey You’re the Devil is always a sure bet. In this song Iain plays the tin whistle instead of the pipes.

Track no. 9 follows the path opened by track 7, another excellent selection of tunes written by different pipers and Iain. It is followed by a Set of Breton Tunes. If Thymes Changes featured a Galician Jig, Breton Tunes is a set of tunes from Brittany (France), another Celtic land.

Feelin’ Alright, a funky number, features the tunes Green Wood Side and Drowsy Maggie. A versatile band who plays music from different origins and from different genres.

And the last track is The Big Apple Heist. Who is the best Bagpipes Rock band in the USA? Just listen to this track and you will need no answer.

Heads Up” is an album that should be in your collection. The digipack packaging contains all the information you need, liner notes, credits, thanks and to whom the album is dedicated. Apart from that, the band keeps on joking about where the album was made and where you should file the album. Those who bought “Loud Pipes Saves Lives” know what I mean.

I expect that Prydein are able to write some catchy songs in the Wolfstone (Ivan Drever’s Years) or MacKeel vein. A better balance between excellent tunes and self-penned songs will help them to get the massive recognition they deserve.
