This is a playlist that I made last year for St. Patrick's Day. And a pisstake song as freebie too: Junto (streetpunk / oi! from Seattle, WA) "Saint Patrick's Day". Enjoy!


"We have a free digital download up of a fun song we recorded last year. Written by Eric Hurst. "

There's a bar that I call home
Day by week by month by year
It's a place that I can go
But there's just one time of year
I gotta make sure to stay away from my 2nd home
Because the amateurs - they just don't know how to drink
(how to drink how to drink how to drink)

Well all the douchebags are here
And they're drinking green beer
What else can I say it's just another cliche St. Paddy's Day
Another cliche St. Paddy's Day.

Don't wear green, you get pinched
But that pinch can turn to a punch
You're doing shots of Jameson
When you should be sipping it
You think that it's funny
To order an Irish Car Bomb
But you're too stupid to realize
That you're in a British Bar

2018-03-13 ALBUM REVIEW - DRINKING PUMPKINS "Folk Mosh" (2018)


This review only showed my opinion about the music before I got some information about the band's environment. Following the comments of some Russian friends on facebook, other bands from the Russian scene wouldn't accept to play with this band because Drinking Pumpkins would be friends with white pride people. Nothing has been said about the lyrics of the songs.

I've got an article and plenty  of pics, for instance, depicting Skrewdriver's T-shirts, tattoos and some posters on their stage. So, all the evidence that has sent to me is very clear.

It's really a same, because the music was good. But I must say that we don't agree with that scene and those ideas.

I have been thinking over removing the review.  Then I have thought that maybe this could have a Barbra Streissand effect. Therefore I have decided to keep the review, but after having removed the band links and added some lines to the end. This way the fans will have the real information about this band.

Drinking Pumpkins "Folk Mosh"
Release date: February 25, 2018
Running time: 35:00, 10 tracks

Drinking Pumpkins are a six piece band from Tyumen, Siberia: Vladimir Serebrennikov (lead vocals, guitar), Raisa Shabanova (fiddle), Vladimir Abramov (bass guitar, backing vocals), Denis Kovalev (drums), Anton Lepsky (guitar) and Ksenia Muzheva (tin whistle, flute, backing vocals). “Folk Mosh” is their debut album, but they had previously released three singles: “Борода (Beard)” in 2014, “Рогонос (Cukold)” in 2015 and “Песня мертвых матросов (The Song of the Dead Sailors)” in 2016. Both “Beard” and “Cukold” can be found on “Folk Mosh”.

The album kicks off with “O’Carolan’s Drean/Ten Penny Bit". It’s really amazing that a band from Russia has chosen a composition by Irish blind harpist Turlough O’Carolan. The fiddle plays a tune that was intended for the harp and then powerful guitars deliver a metal rendition of “Ten Penny Bit”. Hats-off guys!

The next track is titled “Monks”. The fiddle theme is addictive, while the vocals reminds me of Czech band Hakka Muggies. There is an electric guitar part before the end too.

Beard” has a traditional feel and interesting percussion. The vocals get a Firkin treatment, the fiddle is backed by the banjo and the metal guitars add the right atmosphere.

Track no. 4 is called “Paddy” and Drinking Pumpkins slow down a little bit. It’s followed by a kick-ass folk-metal version of “Fire Maringo”, a traditional shanty.

Most Celtic punk fans will be familiar with the next number, “Shoulder to Shoulder”, as Drinking Pumpkins cover their fellow band Garlic Kings. Aidar Aminov guests on the pipes and the final result can rival with the original.

Cuckold” features drunken vocals, a trad. tune and a ska passage towards the end of the song. Another standout number.

Anarchists” is the “different” number on “Folk Mosh”. Apart from fiddle, keyboards (Svetlana Naumkina) and sax (Daniil Serikov) can be heard.

The trad. tune “Green Sleeves” is a highlight too. The arrangements are top-notch and the song evolves from an acoustic beginning to a full electric end.

The last number is “Red Head Girl”, that is, a fast-paced metal cover of “Star of the Co. Down”.

Drinking PumpkinsFolk Mosh” is an awesome debut album. The sound blends punk and metal influences, the selection of traditional numbers is very attractive and the arrangements are excellent. In other circumstances this could be a good addition to your CD collection. But keep in mind that unfortunately the band don't support the same ideas that our scene supports. And we cannot tolerate fascist behaviours.

The Sorry Lot hails from Napa, California, USA.

"The Sorry Lot is a an eight-piece Irish Folk and Ballad band from Napa, California. They deliver high-energy renditions of traditional drinking songs, as well as a few modern and original tunes, while keeping the music true to it's roots in the pubs and bars of Ireland.

Named after a snarky comment from a British bartender, the band was formed in 2007 by members of several local bands who shared a passion for Irish Folk music. Their energy and showmanship stems from their Punk Rock and Reggae backgrounds, but their music remains Irish through and through.

The Sorry Lot can be seen playing regularly at pubs and Breweries throughout California, and are constantly expanding their library of traditional and original songs."

2018-03-11 ALBUM REVIEW - FIRKIN "We are the Ones" (2018)

Firkin "We are the Ones"
Release date: March 17, 2018
Running time: 39:24, 12 tracks

After their EP from 2017, Firkin are finally back with a full CD. Probably one of the best live bands in the continent, the band from Budapest has always released amazing albums. Would they be able to do it again? The answer is “We are the Ones”.

The brand new album is a well-balanced list of self-penned songs (7 tracks) and covers (5 tracks). Firkin felt that another turn of the wheel was needed for their sound and therefore they have bet on a live and crazier sound than usual. From the very first notes of “All is Well” this “change” is noticed. At the beginning one would think that it’s a Celkilt song, but Firkin showcase their metal side straightaway on this kick-ass cut. On the next tracks, the band that comes to mind is The Mahones. “One More Pint”, “Those Irish Punk Girls” and “We are the Ones” are fast-paced songs based on infectious tin whistle, powerful guitars and vocals antics that rival with The Mahones attitude on their last albums.

After that storm, some moments of calm are needed to recover. PJ and his band mates have chosen the suitable song, the traditional  “Lily of the West”. The Celtic punk volcano is back with the next numbers, the brilliant “Your Oddyssey” were Firkin move to The Real McKenzies territory, and “Hold My Beer”, an excellent pub song to sing along.

The next tracks are two covers, “Nancy Whisky” and “Spancil Hill”. The former gets an upbeat treatment with electric guitar and flute, while the latter features interesting fiddling.

Three more songs are delivered before the album comes to its end. “Awaken the Iron” is a superb pirate number with fantastic flute and epic vocals. “Galway Girl” has become a standard and nowadays every single band is covering this song by Steve Earle. Nevertheless, Firkin have done the impossible. They have “firkinized” the song and the final result is incredibly good. “We are the Ones” ends up with a new version of “Flowers” featuring Hungarian folk singer Ági Szalóki on guest vocals.

My opinion? Nobody could expect this master piece after their great “Into the Night” EP from 2017. “Into the Night” was very, very good, but “We are the Ones” is a true gem: great production, perfect sound and a band at the peak of its career.

Track listing:

01 - All is Well 3:00
02 - One More Pint 3:18
03 - Those Irish Punk Girls 3:31
04 - We Are the Ones 3:15

2018-03-08 EP REVIEW - RAISE MY KILT "A New Tartan" (2018)

Raise My Kilt "A New Tartan"
Release date: March 17, 2018
Running time: 17:24, 6 tracks

Before you get overwhelmed by all the CDs that are going to be released next St. Patrick’s Day, I’d like to draw your attention to the new offering by Raise My Kilt. The bagpipes punk band from Buenos Aires was one of the best surprises of 2017. Their first CD “Gaitas and Tanos” consisted of 4 tracks. Luckily, the lads have recorded 6 numbers for their long awaited sophomore EP “A New Tartan”.

The new EP follows a similar path to the previous one. The balance between covers and new stuff is spotless. “A New Tartan” kicks off with the title track, a kick-ass instrumental intro. The early Dropkick Murphys and Black Tartan Clan come immediately to mind.

New Arcadia” is a banjo led punk number with an electric guitar part that features the well-known “John Ryan’s Polka” at the end of the song.

Ewan MacColl’s “Dirty Old Town” gets a Black Tartan Clan meets Ramones treatment while “1982” is a brilliant street-punk that Pipes & Pints fans will enjoy.

Great minds think alike! Galician band Bastards on Parade used to play Cock SparrerWe’re Coming Back” at the end of their gigs. And Raise My Kilt deliver an amazing cover based on banjo and pipes.

Finally, Raise My Kilt play their own rendition of “Scotland the Brave”.

If you like Black Tartan Clan or the early Mudmen, Raise My Kilt is your new fave. At least they are my bagpipes punk band of the moment. Come on guys! Six songs are not enough. We need the debut album asap!!!

Track listing:

1 - A New Tartan 1:50
2 - New Arcadia 4:04
3 - Dirty Old Town 3:37
4 - 1982 3:05
5 - We're Coming Back 3:34

2018-03-06 ALBUM REVIEW MARY'S LANE "Wild Unknown" (2018)

Mary's Lane "Wild Unknown"
Release date: February 16, 2018
Running time: 40:42, 11 tracks

Mary’s Lane is a 6 piece Irish-American rock band from Cleveland, Ohio. Patrick Mulloy (vocals, guitar), Michael Crawley 8 vocals, guitar), Mark Whalen (percussion), Matthew Sofranko (vocals, bass), Brent Hopper (vocals, lead guitar, mandolin, banjo) and Tessa Thistlethwaite have previously released one live album (“Live in Ohio”, 2011), one studio album (“See You next Time”, 2014), two EPs (“Power in a Tiny Bottle”, 2013 and “The Furey Session”, 2015) and one single (“I Once crossed an Ocean”, 2015). So, “Wild Unknown” is their second studio album.

Wild Unknown” consists of 11 songs that have been written by four band members: Patrick, Michael, Matthew and Brent. A traditional hornpipe and a traditional jig can be heard on a couple of tracks, but “Wild Unknown” is basically an album full of self-penned songs.

Patrick Mulloy has written four of the tracks. The opening number “Dead Man Walking” is an excellent upbeat number that reminds me of The Paperboys. “Petronilla” has a similar feel, with some Latin/Spanish echoes. “Smoke” and the closing number “Between the Darkness” would be a couple of Celtic pop songs.

The songs written by Michael Crawley are track no. 2 and track no. 8. Both cuts are probably the most “American” numbers on “Wild Unknown". “Rain on my Parade” is a bluesy number while “Box of Roses” is a country song.

Bassist Matthew Sofranko has written 2 songs too. “Last Gift” is one of the highlights. The songs kicks off slowly with mandolin and later turns into a fiddle and mandolin led fast-paced number à la early Flogging Molly. The other song written by Matthew is “Whiskeytown”.

Finally, three songs have been written by Brent Hopper. “Road less Traveled/Harvest Home” is not a set of tunes, but an amazing song that features “Harvest Home” or “Cork Hornpipe”, as The Dubliners called it on their albums. “Another Pint” is at my top3 together with “Dead Man Walking” and “Last Gift”. Excellent drinking song, grab your pint and sing along! “Gypsy Dance/The Kesh Jig” is the only set of tunes on “Wild Unknown”. ”Gypsy’s Dance” is an interesting tune written by Brent that is followed by a polished version of “The Kesh” jig.

Track listing:

01 - Dead Man Walking 3:33
02 - Rain on My Parade 3:42
03 - Petronilla 4:52
04 - Last Gift 4:04
05 - Road Less Traveled / Harvest Home 3:10
06 - Smoke 4:11
07 - Another Round 2:17
08 - Box of Roses 4:09
09 - Whiskeytown 3:43
10 - Gypsys Dance / The Kesh Jig 2:46
11 - Between the Darkness & the Light 4:09

2018-03-04 ALBUM REVIEW - KILT THE MESSENGER "Hellfire & Rescue" (2018)

Kilt the Messenger "Hellfire & Rescue"
Release date: January 26, 2018
Running time: 43:27, 12 tracks

Kilt the Messenger is Bob Youhas (vocals, guitar, bagpipes, banjo, accordion), Annie Astley Padnuk (vocals, bagpipes, viola), Jim Turner (keyboards, trumpet), David Nelson (bass, vocals) and Haley Youhas (drums). They have been recording their second album “Hellfire & Rescue” during the last three years and regularly videos for some of the songs have been posted on YouTube. As Bob says, Kilt the Messenger are not easy to pigeonhole; they aren’t the usual bagpipes rock or bagpipes punk band. So, they’ve tagged their music as Celtic Punkabilly. 11 songs have made the album. There are several rockabilly numbers, some folk-rock tracks and, above all, some poignant songs featuring bagpipes.

The highlights are “I will Not Say Goodbye”, “Joseph”, “The Ballad of Vincent McCarthy” and “Dungeons of Hell”. The first three tracks are true gems. “I will not Say Goodbye” was accepted and made it all the way to the nominating process for the 2017 Grammy Awards. Bob and Annie share vocal duties and the vocal harmonies are spot on. The structure of the song is flawless. Backing accordion, viola parts and a kick-ass bagpipes tune. “Joseph” is a brilliant number too. Incredibly well-written song, once again Bob and Annie share vocal duties. Guitar, viola and accordion are played at the beginning of the song, but later banjo takes the lead and Jim shines on trumpet. “The Ballad of Vincent McCarthy” is a special song for Bob, who is a fireman. This song is “the story of an 87 year old retired New York City fireman who joined us for dinner at the fire station every B-shift for 6 years”. Bob played the pipes at Vince’s funeral. This number is bagpipes rock at its best. Both Annie and Bob play the pipes and they’re joined by some pipe band members on drums at the end of the song, Jim Adams, Mike Naughton and Buddy Rein. “Dungeons of Hell” is a fictional tale of a battle. Keyboards and Annie back Bob at the beginning and then the electric guitar, the pipes and the rhythm section deliver a kick-ass bagpipes punk number.

All of these Rivers” is a punk song featuring viola that sometimes reminds me of Mick Jones’ songs with The Clash. “Come Low Come High” has a guitar intro à la early Billy Bragg but soon evolves into an interesting rock song with an electric guitar part towards the end.

They tell me that Was You” is a track about "the decline of a Super power nation over the last 50 years". The song gets a guitar based R’n’R treatment. The next cut is titled “Coming to a Theater near You”. It’s a high-octane rockabilly number that was awarded Alternative Rock song of the month by the Akademia Music Awards in Los Angeles. “No Coming Back for You/Big Brother” and “Nobody Came” are more rockabilly infused songs. Dennis Bram (sax) and Jim Correa (trombone) guest on “Nobody Came”. Finally, “Speeding Car” is an appealing folk rock cut with some Mark Knopfler sounding electric guitar.

Celtic punk can be sometimes an endogamic scene. However, some bands are trying to stretch the boundaries of the genre. Kilt the Messenger would be one of those bands. No pub standard will be found on this record, but a bunch of honest self-penned songs.

Track listing:

01 - They Tell Me That was You 3:47
02 - Coming to a Theater Near You 3:55
03 - The Ballad of Vincent McCarthy 5:10
04 - Nobody Came 2:55
05 - Joseph 3:44
06 - I Will Not Say Goodbye 4:00
07 - No Coming Back From You - Big Brother 4:08

2018-02-28 ALBUM REVIEW - TEMPEST "Thirty Little Turns" (2018)

Tempest "Thirty Little Turns" Magna Carta
Release date: February 23, 2018
Running time: 44:33, 10 tracks

Tempest has just released “Thirty Little Turns”. If you are not familiar with the band from Oakland, let’s say that they are the godfathers of the Celtic rock scene in the USA. Tempest was born in 1988 and they have released 11 studio albums, 1 collection of previously unreleased tracks from 1989 to 1992, 3 live albums, 1 live DVD, 1 compilation album + 1 DVD to celebrate their 20th anniversary, a 3 CD set to celebrate their 15th anniversary and a re-recording of their best songs to celebrate their 10th anniversary. The band is led by founding members Lief Sorbye (lead vocals, mando-guitar, mandolins, flute and tin whistle) and Adolfo Lazo (drums). Their band mates on the current incarnation of the band are Kathryn Buys (fiddle, vocals), Josh Fossgreen (bass, vocals) and Ab Menon (electric guitar). Tempest has released most of their discography on the Magna Carta label and all of those albums have been produced by Robert Berry, who usually guests on keyboards. In fact, they say that Robert is an honorary band member.

Tempest blends Irish folk, Scottish Folk, English folk and rock. Lief was born in Norway, and Norwegian folk has an important role on Tempest’s sound too. Besides, Adolfo is from Cuba and some Latin influence can be noticed on some tracks.  A long time ago, a friend of mine defined Tempest’s music as a cross between Jethro Tull and Thin Lizzy. And normally Tempest are labelled as a progressive band. I daresay that Tempest have taken the Fairport Convention, Steeleye Span and Five Hand Reel spirit and have fitted it to the 21st century.

Thirty Little Turns” features 3 original songs, one cover of a Beatles’ song, 3 instrumentals/sets of tunes and 3 covers of traditional songs. “Thirty Little Birds” is a song about the people Tempest has met during those 30 years. All the things that can be found on a Tempest song are present on this number: a kick-ass fiddle tune, a classic folk-rock sound, backing keyboards and an addictive electric guitar passage. “A Toast” is a well-written song,  maybe more English than Celtic. Curiously, IMHO, the fiddle has a classical sound at the beginning and at the end of the song. But this track is folk rock at its best. The third original is “Madeline Jones” and I find some Santana and Latin jazz influences on this track.

Tempest has decided to cover a song written by The Beatles, “Norwegian Wood”. The band is really tight, and fiddle, mandolin, drums and keyboards give a new lease of life to the song. The jig “Tripping up the Stairs” is played at the end of the song. That jig is a great tune that always work, just remember the Spirit of the West rendition on their “An Honest Gamble” song, which was later covered by The Pubcrawlers.

The first instrumental on “Thirty Little Turns” is “The Battle of Aughrim”. There is a short intro and then Tempest play a brilliant version of this traditional tune featuring some interesting flute and fiddle arrangements. The next set of tunes is tittled “Lahard Chase”: The Lahard Chase and In Walked Dalai were written by Patrick Caryannis and Harny’s Reel by Paul Meehan. Kathryn shines on fiddle and the rhythm section backs her perfectly. The third set of tunes is the closing number, “Swarb”. Swarb was Dave Swarbrick, the best British fiddler, who was a member of Fairport Convention and played together with Martin Carthy and Alistair Hullett (front man for Aussie Celtic punk legend band Roaring Jack). Needless to say that it’s one of the standout tracks on “Thirty Little Turns”.

The selection of the traditional songs is spotless: “Trollldans” is an awesome song sung by Lief in his mother tongue. “Johhny Cope” is sung with gusto by Lief and Kathryn. This song opened Planxty’s third album too and Lief is a fan of Andy Irvine. Finally, “High Germany” gets an enjoyable folk-rock treatment. Once again, Lief and Kathy share vocal duties. The tune at the end is titled “Brambleberry Reel” and was written by Kathy.

TempestThirty Little Turns” is solid effort by an excellent band. Fans of Celtic rock will love it. And fans of Celtic punk that also listen to folk metal and pirate metal should also give it a try.

2018-02-21 ALBUM REVIEW - FINNEGAN'S HELL "Life and Death" Heptown Records (2018)

Finnegan's Hell "Live and Death" Heptown Records HTR076
Release date: February 23, 2018
Running time: 38:29, 13 tracks

During the last weeks the weather here has been colder than normal. Several cold waves have brought heavy snow. Then, I’ve spent the weekends watching TV series, for instance, Bron-Broen season 3 and Modus season 2. Cold, snow and Swedish TV series: that was the right atmosphere to welcome Celtic punk music from Sweden. So I was lucky when the postman delivered “Life and Death”, the second album by Finnegan’s Hell.

Finnegan’s Hell decided to take it easy and then their sophomore CD is going to be released almost four years after their debut album. This time there are no covers. Although the lyrics to “Isn’t it Grand Boys?” are traditional, all the music has been written by the band or by Pabst and/or Mick. 12 tracks about losers, workers and "different" people. The title is clear: “Life and Death” and Finnegan’s Hell have felt that a minute of silence was compulsory at the end of the album.

There are no experiments on “Life and Death”, but straightforward Celtic punk. Finnegan’s Hell is a well-oiled machine and the songs have been tested and played live during 4 years. Almost half of the songs are based on the banjo and the accordion sounds and the other half on the tin whistle and the accordion sounds.

First of all, I review the songs where the tin whistle can be heard and secondly the ones on which the banjo can be heard. “Shane MacGowan’s Grave” was not chosen as single, but it’s one of the standout tracks on the album and will soon become a classic song on the band’s repertoire. Upbeat song with a kick ass tune at the end. “Cursed” has a catchy chorus and it’s one of my fave tracks too. “How Am I to Make it?" is a fantastic fast-paced cut about a loser.  “Whatcha gonna do?” is the closing number. It has the Finnegan’s Hell’s classic sound and some gang vocals, but I prefer the previous numbers.

As told before, Finnegan’s Hell have put new music to “Isn’t it Grand Boys”. Most of the song sound as some monks singing backed by the banjo. But after the song comes to its end, there is a badass banjo led tune.

All In”, another song about a loser, has some banjo and gang vocals à la Dropkick Murphys. I’ve particularly enjoyed the lyrics to “Rude Awakening” (all the lyrics to the song can be found on the 28 page booklet). “The Bastard Son” is a hypnotic number that I have also loved. “Paradise Town” is probably the catchiest song on “Life and Death”. I understand why the guys made a video for this anthem. “One-Horse Town” is an excellent rocking number. I’ve also appreciated the lyrics to this song, since they remind me of The Men They Couldn’t HangCompany Town”. “Dance Upon Your Grave” has a Velvet Underground sounding intro, but soon the song burst into a fast-paced Celtic punk number featuring guest Carl Nyqvist on fiddle.

Coal Mine” was the first single off “Life and Death”. I must admit that I didn’t enjoy this song with a reggae vibe. However, the song has grown on me. Accordion and banjo are played all along the song, but the tin whistle is also played in the middle. Great lyrics that obviously remind me of The Whisky Priests earlier stuff, for instance, “The Colliery”.

I don’t like Ikea, but I enjoy Swedish TV series, crimes novels and Celtic punk bands. Finnegan’s Hell are really a solid band and both music and lyrics are top-notch on this CD. Therefore, “Life and Death” is a well-balanced album. Thanks to their label Heptown Records for chosing the right date for the release of the album. A plethora of CDs will be released on St. Patrick’s Day and that will make us difficult to pay attention to all of them.
