2018-04-17 ALBUM REVIEW - THE MUCKERS "One More Stout" (2018)

The Muckers "One More Stout" 627209 Records DK
Release date: March 9, 2018
Running time: 46:18, 13 tracks

One More Stout” is the sophomore album by Atlanta based band The Muckers. Jeff Shaw (vocals, fiddle, mandolin), Brady Truelove (guitars vocals), Randall English (bass, clarinet, vocals), Steve Lingo (drums, vocals) and Dave Long (accordion, vocals) have recorded a well-balanced album of originals and covers.

The album kicks off with “Let’s All Go to the Bar”. This is a song by a band called Deer Tick, but one may think that it’s a self-penned number. The accordion plays the major role and there is a good mandolin passage at the end. The other covers are tracks no. 4, no. 6, no.8 and no. 9. “Black Irish” is an upbeat song by a band called The Devil Makes Three. It begins with the fiddle, and then the other instruments join. “Long Gravel Road” is a fiddle led number by Cutthroat Shamrock. Great Big Sea "Old Black Rum" is played with gusto. “God Save Ireland” is a lively number with amazing accordion à la The Pogues. My fave together with “Let’s All Go to the Bar”.

Jeff has put words to an East European tune on "Limonchiki". Fiddle and accordion do a great job on this number that The Dreadnoughts fans will appreciate. Finally, a trad. tune closes the album: “Castle Kelly”. The Muckers deliver a kick-ass rendition of a tune that is not overexposed.

The originals are mainly a bunch of excellent drinking songs: the catchy “Day Drinking”, the Poguesish “One More Stout”, “Whiskey” (which gets a balladeer treatment) and the cow-punk number “Drunker’n Cooter Brown” featuring accordion and mandolin. Special mention to the second cut, “Hellbound” and its awesome fiddle arrangements.

Jeff and the boys keep up the good work that they began with their debut album. They take the spirit of The Clancy Brothers and The Pogues and add their own American influences to the mix. Besides, they stay away from the usual overexposed standards and their choice of the songs to cover is spotless. In other words, The Muckers are a fantastic band to party.

Track listing:

01 - Let's All Go to the Bar 3:48
02 - Hellbound 3:39
03 - Day Drinking 4:21
04 - Black Irish 3:50
05 - One More Stout 3:46

2018-04-14 EP REVIEW - THE GRINNING BARRETTS "The St. Padraig's EP" (2018)

The Grinning Barretts "The St. Padraig's EP"
Release date: March 17, 2018
Running time: 24:11, 7 tracks

If Celtic punk was born in London with The Pogues, bagpipes punk was born in British Columbia (Canada) with The Real McKenzies. Amazing Canadian bagpipes punk bands released some kick-ass albums, but they are sadly defunct (The Tartan Hearts from Alberta and Farler’s Fury from Quebec). Fortunately a new band from Ladysmith, British Columbia, arrived in 2016: The Grinning Barretts. They released a fantastic four track demo that reached no. 5 at our Best EPs of 2016.

After some changes, the new line-up is Pat Westmacott (guitar, vocals), Dylan Wickham (guitar, banjo, vocals), Aaron Bergen and Kevin Dougan (bagpipes, whistles), Bern Kinnear (bass) and Jeremy Fiddy (drums). The Grinning Barretts are currently the official house band at Riot Brewing Co. in Chemainus, the best brewery on Vancouver Island, and they released a 7 track CD last St-Patrick’s Day. The title, “The St. Padraig’s EP”.

The Grinnning BarrettsThe St. Padraig’s EP” is a brilliant EP (or even mini-album). The first song on the EP is “Plutocrass”, a shot at the rich bastards who own news outlets, and pay them to lie so they can get richer. This excellent number was already on the demos and has the band’s trademark: pipes, guitars and  oi! singalong chorus.

Track no. 2 is called "W&B". Bagpipes open and then the full band joins. If you like the Dropkick Murphys early stuff, this is a song for you. I’d daresay that they give DKM a run for their money if we take into account the Murphys last album.

Kudatah” kicks off with bass, electric guitar and drums before the pipes are added. The sound is raw, with in yer face pipes, gang vocals and an electric guitar part before the end of the song.

The first traditional number on “The St. Padraig’s EP” is a Scottish song, “Wild Mountain Thyme” aka “Will Ye Go Lassie, Go”. This song was covered by The Real McKenzies on their second album “Clash of the Tartans”. Curiously, The RMCK rendition has no pipes. The Grinning Barretts deliver a badass cover full of pipes and guitars. The song finishes up a cappella.

The second traditional song on the EP is “Black Velvet Band”. The name of some places have been changed (Nelson in BC instead of Belfast) and the song reminds of the Dropkick Murphys cover with its gang vocals. However The Grinning Barretts rendition is full of pipes and they have added a traditional pipes tune too. Better? Worse? Different. I’d say better, but I admit that the Grinning Barretts cover wouldn’t exist without the Murphys previous version.

UFS” is oi! at its best.  The chorus is so infectious that I can’t help but sing along.

The last song on the album is another celtic oi! gem, the fast-paced “To Your Name”. When one thinks that the song is over, there is a brilliant pipes solo.

The St. Padraig’s EP” can be bought from Bandcamp, where the lyrics to all of the songs are available too. If you like bagpipes punk and oi! bands such as Harrington Saints or Bishops Green, this is the EP that you should add to your collection. A bagpipes punk must have.

Track listing:

1. Plutocrass 03:28   
2. W&B 02:18   
3. Kudatah 03:38   
4. Wild Mountain Thyme 02:17   
5. Black Velvet Band 03:46   
6. UFS 03:35   
7. To Your Name 04:54

2018-04-11 ALBUM REVIEW - KINGS & BOOZERS "Still Got the Booze" (2018)

Kings & Boozers "Still got the Booze" Slainte Records
Release date: March 9, 2018
Running time: 48:13, 13 tracks

When The Pogues disbanded in the 90’s, some German bands kept the Celtic punk flame burning. Lady Godiva was one of those bands, together with Fiddler’s Green, In Search of a Rose and Across the Border. Lady Godiva released 4 albums between 1994 and 2006, apart from some singles and a DVD: “Whisky You’re the Devil” (1996), “Tales of Kings and Boozers” (1998), “Red Letter Day” (2001) and “Zooperation" (2003). The band called it a day in January 2006.

Two new bands were born from the ashes of Lady Godiva: Muirsheen Durkin & Friends and Kings & Boozers. Kings & Boozers are Thomas Rünker (lead vocals, also member of Muirsheen Durkin & Friends), Jan Beckman (electric guitars, vocals), Christian Eickel (accordion) and Thorsten Donner (drums), together with Thomas Landsknecht “Lanze” (mandolin, banjo, also member of Muirsheen Durkin & Friends), Christian Kaufhold (tin whistle, vocals) and Lucas Müller (bass, vocals). Chris “Kentop” was the manager of Lady Godiva and he’s the manager of Kings & Boozers too (apart from the drummer and the manager of Muirsheen Durkin & Friends).

Which are the differences between Kings & Boozers and Muirsheen Durkin & Friends? There are no girls in Kings & Boozers, so all the lyrics are sung by Thomas Rünker. Moreover, there are no pipers. And no instrumental can be found on “Still Got the Booze”. Curiously, Kings & Boozers released their debut album 7 days before Muirsheen Durkin & Friends have issued their second album. And both CDs include covers of “One Whisky”, one of Lady Godiva’s hits.

Still got the Booze” kicks off with a spoken intro and then the lads deliver the title track, a kick-ass number to sing along. The song tells the tale of the band: maybe some people thought that they were going to fail, but they were wrong. “Seven Paddies in Berlin” is an upbeat tempo with rawer vocals. Kings & Boozers prove that they master the tin whistle-accordion-banjo sound and the backing vocals. The third original is track no. 6, “Queen of Hearts”. This number features the “Royal Lattina Orchestra of Bologna”. The musicians in Kings & Boozers have been a long time in the business and they know when they can take a risk. And it has paid off, since this song is a true gem.

Three Lady Godiva’s songs have been revisited. “One Whisky”, from the first album, is a killer song. “In God We Trust” was originally on their fourth album and I was not familiar with that song (I have only the other 3 albums in my CD collection). However, I have been surprised by this excellent number. “Remember the Time”, from their third album, is a nostalgic song but it fits perfectly into the album. Sadly, there are no songs from the second album, for instance “Mary” or “King of My Mad Brain” (my faves).

Mike Rivkees (Mickey Rickshaw) is a guest on the Irish song “Bold Fenian Men” aka “Down by the Glenside”. This is not an overexposed standard and the arrangements are class, particularly the electric guitar. On the other hand, “Wild Rover” is really an overexposed standard. Nevertheless, Kings & Boozers perform a magic trick to give it a new lease of life, and it works: the lyrics are the real ones, but the music is that of Stan JonesGhost Riders in the Sky”.

Kings & Boozers have also covered a couple of comedy numbers, Mike CrossDrunken Scotsman” and Pat McCurdySex & Beer”. Both of them get the Celtic punk treatment.

Finally, Kings & Boozers have recorded a couple of songs written by their folk punk heroes, The Pogues and The Whisky Priests. “Everyman is a King” is a B-Side written by Terry Woods and Ron Kavana and can also be found on the “Peace & Love” remastered and expanded re-issue from 2004. One again, the lads have chosen a great song and have recorded a respectful cover. “The Raven” is a song from The Whisky PriestsTimeless Street” album from 1992. The Kings & Boozers rendition is more than a cover: Gary Miller and Mick Tyas are guests on this track and the final result is bloody good!

There was neither musical differences, nor disputes between old friends when Lady Godiva called it quits. Some of the members wished to keep on playing and they chose a new name, Kings & Boozers. It would have been easier if they had released the CD as Lady Godiva. But Kings & Boozers are not a reformation, but a new band. And they have dealt with love and respect the Lady Godiva’s legacy and have issued an enjoyable album. Hats-off!

2018-04-09 ALBUM REVIEW - MUIRSHEEN DURKIN & FRIENDS "11 Pints & 3 Shots" (2018)

Muirsheen Durkin & Friends "13 Pints & 3 Shots"
Release date: March 16, 2018
Running time: 45:36, 14 tracks

“11 Pints & 3 Shots” is the third offering by German band Muirsheen Durkin & Friends after their debut album “Last Order” (2012) and the “Drink with the Irish” EP (2014). Currently they are MacRuenker (lead vocals, tin whistle), Lanze (guitars, banjo, mandolin, bckg. vocals), Sonja (acoustic guitar, vocals), Kentop (drums), Lothar (bass, bckg. vocals), Mine (accordion, vocals), Michi (electric guitar, Irish bouzouki, guitar-banjo, vocals), Andre (pipes) and Simon (pipes), while the friends are Thorsten Donner (drums, Kings & Boozers), Christian “Kiki” Eickel (accordion, Kings & Boozers) and Thomas “Püddl” Pütter (electric guitar).

The album kicks off with “Another Drunken Night”, a catchy song and one of the best numbers on the CD.  Another self-penned song is track no. 8, “Land of the 1.000 Mountains”, an interesting song . Muirsheen Durkin & Friends have re-recorded “Drink with the Irish”, the addictive song from their previous EP. Together with these top quality songs, the 6 boys and the 2 girls deliver a couple of amazing instrumentals: “Peggy the Waitress” has a The Pogues touch thanks to the accordion, the tin whistle and the banjo, while “McRuenkers Junk” blends a tune by McRuenker and Lanze with a well-known polka. “One Whiskey” is not exactly a self-penned song, but a fantastic classic song by Lady Godiva written by McRüenker. Now they have added the “E” to whiskey (the original song is titled “One Whisky”) and changed some words.

Muirsheen Durkin & Friends also cover a The Pogues song. Fortunately, the band from Arnsberg have not made an easy choice and they have selected a song from The Pogues box set “Just Look Them Straight in the Eye and Say: Pogue Mahone!” written by Jem Finer: “The Last of McGee”. The final result is quite impressive. There is also a shanty, but this time a song that has been covered a lot of times after The Dreadnoughts recorded their rendition, “Old Maui”. It gets a full band treatment and has top-notch tune towards the end of the song.

Finally, there are 5/6 standards that are sung by the girls or feature the pipers. “Botany Bay” has two versions, the Celtic punk one and the reggae one that closes the album. “Donald Where Your Troosers”, a song written by Andy Stewart, is the other number sung by the girls and, IMHO, it sounds better. Following with the Scottish side of the album, there is a selection of traditional and modern pipes tunes. “Wild Mountain Thyme” is covered with gusto: electric guitar, pipes, accordion, percussion and female backing vocals. “Itchy Fingers” is a hornpipe written by Pipe Major Rab Pinkman of the “King’s Own Scottish Borderers” in the 20th century. I think that the first Celtic punk band to record this tune was The Gentlemen (“War Time in North London” from their debut album “Stick to Your Guns”, 2009). Muirsheen Durkin & Friends rendition is spotless with hey and yeah shouts and great percussion. The last Scottish number is “When the Pipers Play”. The song is originally titled “The Water is Wide”, but Scottish folk singer Isla St. Clair changed the lyrics to the song and renamed it as “When the Pipers Play”.  Pipes & Pints recorded “When the Pipers Play” for their debut album “Until We Die” in 2009, while Black Tartan Clan included “The Water is Wide” in their third album “Don’t Walk Alone” in 2012.  Muirsheen Durkin & Friends have blended both covers, as the first half of their song is reminiscent of The Black Tartan Clan, while the second half would be inspired by the Pipes & Pints cover. Anyway, they have not chosen the Isla St. Clair lyrics, but written new lyrics to the song and there are awesome female backing vocals.

11 Pints & 3 Shots" comes in an excellent 6 panel digipack, together with a 20 page booklet including the lyrics to all of the songs and a lot of pictures.  As usual, the final result is excellent, but I’m still waiting for an album by Muirsheen Durkin & Friends where there are more self-penned songs and less covers. Come on guys, you can do it!

Track listing:

01 - Another Drunken Night 3:39
02 - One Whiskey 2.53
03 - Itchy Fingers 2:07
04 - Donald where's your Troosers 2:54
05 - Wild Mountain Thyme 3:23

2018-04-05 ALBUM REVIEW - THE PIKEYS "The Sons of War & Whisky" (2018)

The Pikeys "The Sons of War & Whisky"
Release date: March 16, 2018
Running time: 33:17, 12 tracks

The Pikeys were formed in Sacramento in 2010 by Ben Mentze (lead vocals, lagerphone) and Mike Dalton (lead guitar, vocals). They have released some singles that were included in our Sampler Vol. VII from 2013 and can be downloaded from Reverbnation, two amazing videos ("Pissed Again" and "Banshee's Torment") and a live album ("Balls out Bootlegs", 2017). "The Sons of War & Whisky" is their first studio album. Apart from Ben and Mike, the current line-up is Buji (banjo, vocals, artwork), Glenn Newport (bass, vocals) and Patrick Hennessy (drums). Former / part time members Trevor Miller (woodwinds) and Carl Ogren (mandolin, vocals) have also recorded "The Sons of War & Whisky", together with guests Cameron Carbrey (piano), Sinjin Fraser (fiddle, from fellow band One Eyed Reilly), Matthew Holland (accordion), Noah Nelson (guitars), Jonah Mentze (trombone) and Keith Roberts (from the Young Dubliners).

"The Sons of War & Whisky" is a concept album that tells the tale of Pat Kelly, known to his mates as Pikey. The tale can be found on the band's website. If you open the link on a new window, you'll be able to check out the tale and the songs review. BTW, the lyrics to all of the songs can be found on the band's website too.

"Drunk in Cardiff" is the perfect opener for this celtic punk album. Upbeat number showcasing tin whistle and electric guitar that remids me of Swedish band Finnegan's Hell. The next track, "A.R.A.", is a brilliant fast-paced song featuring banjo and tin whistle.

The first standard on "The Sons of War and Whisky" is "Botany Bay". This time The Pikeys take a balladeer approach closer to The Dubliners or The Wolfe Tones, but with electric guitar.

Track no. 4 is titled "Last Guinness". It's an amazing parody of the Misfits' "Last Caress" with trombone and electric guitar. The Pikeys follow the drinking song path with "The Public House". Keith Roberts from The Young Dubliners guests on this accordion driven number with a catchy chorus.

The Pikeys go mental on "Waxie's Dargle",  the second traditional song on the album. "Battle" is a standout track with great fiddle arrangements and an addictive chorus. "The Ballad of Sean Kellie" is another highlight: lively song to sing along, with woahs, electric guitar and a chorus that reminds me of SIR REG (even if The Pikeys sound harder than them).

"Sons of War"  is a slower ballad that proves that The Pikeys are comfortable on any territory. "The Briar & The Sword" starts with acoustic guitar but soon evolves into an interesting hard rock song . And "Requiem for Josh" is a poignant number where piano and fiddle take the relay.

The album is over with the band's rendition of "Black & Tans". Once again, The Pikeys move to the balladeer end.

The Pikeys have finally released their debut album almost 8 years after the band was formed. But the wait was worth it, since "The Sons of War & Whisky" is a brilliant album. Why should you buy the CD instead of the mp3 album? Because the artwork by Buji is rad and the digital version has only  11 tracks instead of 12.

Track listing:

01 - Drunk in Cardiff 2:03
02 - A R A 3:00
03 - Botany Bay 2:53
04 - One Last Guinness
05 - The Public House (feat. Keith Roberts) 2:32
06 - Waxies' Dargle 1:38
07 - Battle 3:50
08 - The Ballad of Sean Kellie 2:27
09 - Sons of War 3:11
10 - The Briar and the Sword 4:09
11 - Requiem for Josh 1:53
12 - Black and Tans 3:42

2018-03-27 ALBUM REVIEW - St. GEORGE'S FOLLY "Along This Road" (2018)

St. George's Folly "Along This Road"
Release date: March 12, 2018
Running time: 29 minutes, 9 tracks

St. George's Folly is a new band from St. Paul. They are Adam Azra'el (guitar, vocals), Bradley Kallhoff (guitar, mandolin, vocals), Dempsey Schroeder (fiddle, guitar, vocals), Nate Beck (bass), Samp Fosters (drums). Guitarist  Owen Ray left the band in January 2018 and now Benny Cole is the new guitarist. The Twin Cities have an interesting Celtic punk/rock scene (The Tim Malloys, The Langer's Ball ..) and St. George's Folly are the latest addition to this bunch of amazing bands.

St. George's Folly have released their released album just before St. Patrick's Day. It's titled "Along this Road" and have 9 tracks, 4 standards and 9 originals. The album kicks off with "Tell Me Ma". Yes, it's an overexposed standard, but it has all the things that make St. George's Folly a brilliant band: kick-ass fiddling, vocal harmonies, and claps. The boys have added a great electric guitar passage too. The second traditional song is "Waxie's Dargle". Everybody knows this song, as it can be found on The Pogues debut album "Red Roses for Me". Nevetheless, there are not many covers of this number. The song gets the perfect treatment. St. George's Folly's rendition of "Step it Out Mary" reminds me of The Green Duck's cover. However, the lads from the Twin Cities have written amazing fiddle arrangements and the last part of the song is spotless. The last cover on "Along this Road" is "Star of the Co. Down". I have not enjoyed the last versions that I have heard from other bands, but I must say that St. George's Folly deliver an excellent fast-paced version.

If the musicianship and arrangements on the trad. stuf are top-notch, the best tracks on the CD are the self-penned songs. "Aspen Grove" has a catchy chorus, woahs and infectious fiddling. I daresay that St. George's Folly sound more like a Canadian band than a US band. The core of the album runs from tracks 4 to 6. "Old Jim's Eulogy" can rival with the best songs by Bastard Bearded Irishmen, while "Three Days in Havana" has an early Flogging Molly flavor; and "Iron Hearts" is a Ludwig Van beethoven meets Celtic punk number featuring the Ode to Joy from Symphony no. 9. "The Whisky Ode" is slower than other numbers on the CD, but quite enjoyable.

St. George's Folly "Along this Road" would be one of the best albums of 2018 and the band is clearly one of the newcomers of the year.

Track listing.

1. Tell Me Ma 02:22
2. Aspen Grove 03:44
3. Waxie's Dargle 01:57
4. Old Jim's Eulogy 03:08
5. Three Days In Havana 03:32

2018-03-26 ALBUM REVIEW - PUNCHING NAMARD "First Round" (2018)

Punching Namard "First Round"
Release date: March 10, 2018
Running time: 42:43, 15 tracks

Brazilian band Lugh opened the way for a couple of bands that have released excellent debut albums, RATS and Punching Namard. Punching Namard were our Band of the Month in January 2015. Their demos were reviewed here and we have been waiting eagerly for their debut album. The wait was worth it, since "First Round" is the sort of album that we  enjoy.

"Never Again", the opening track features fiddle and banjo and has a bluegrass twist. One of my fave songs on the album. "No More Smoke" is another standout number. This time there is tin whistle instead of fiddle, and more banjo. The sound is perfect:  the tin whistle is not hidden in the mix and the chorus is addictive, let alone the lectric guitar passage.

A couple of tracks are sung in Brazilian Portuguese. "Relatos de un ex-Careta" is another highlight, a simple but effective punk song featuring fiddle and banjo. I love "Do Mar", an a cappella shanty that is followed by "The Promised Land", a song sung in English. This number is obviously the second part of "Do Mar" and fiddle and mandolin can be heard on this amazing song.

A video clip was shot for "Confession", a powerful Celtic punk song with a So-Cal twist that can also be noticed on "As They Say".

On "First Round" there are new versions of the songs from the demo. "Up and Down" blends powerful guitars with tin whistle and banjo. "Home" is a The Dreadnoughts infused number led by the accordion. "Find a Way" is an awesome number in the Flogging Molly vein with great fiddling. "It Was not What I Meant" is an upbeat song featuring tin whistle and gang vocals. And "Punching Namard", the band's calling card, gets a new lease of live.

The other songs on the album are "Dead or Alive" (an a cappella short song), "Beginning of the End" (jumping accordion, mandolin and aah chorus) and "Another Life" (a catchy number, but maybe not so energetic as previous songs)
The bands from Brazil, Argentina and Chile are fighting to find their place on the Celtic punk map. Punching Namard and other bands are proving that they can released albums as good as those issued by some of the best names on the Celtic punk scene. Give them a try.

Track listing:

01 - Never Again 2:02
02 - No More smoke 3:18
03 - Cofession 3:18
04 - Dead or Alive 0:48
05 - Up and Down 2:57

2018-03-18 ALBUM REVIEW - RAGLAN ROAD "s/t" (2017)

Raglan Road "s/t"
Release date: December 23, 2017
Running time: 43:06, 13 tracks

Raglan Road” is a well-known song whose lyrics where written by Patrick Kavanagh. Luke Kelly (The Dubliners) set it to the music of “The Dawning of the Day”. Apart from The Dubliners, Van Morrison recorded the song together with The Chieftains for his “Irish Heartbeat” album. There was a band called Raglan Road in the USA fronted by Dominic Cromie that released an album titled “Live” in 1999. But the Raglan Road whose album I’m reviewing now is a new band from New Brunswick, Canada.

Jason Martell (vocals, acoustic guitar), Gary Gosse (vocals, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, mandolin), Jamie Craig (vocals, bass, piano, tin whistle) and Corey MacDonald released their debut album as Raglan Road at the end of 2017. There is only one original song and 11 covers, some of them familiar to any celtic rock fan, and some of them probably new to them.

The self-penned song is track no. 4, “New Orleans” and it was written by Gary Gosse. It’s an interesting blues number that sometimes reminds me of British band Status Quo. There are some Celtic/country covers on the album. “Getting Dark Again” is an amazing rendition of a song by Buddy MacDonald, and “Followed Her Around” and the upbeat “Mull River Shuffle” are Jimmy Rankin’s songs. “Can’t You See” is an awesome cover with a Guns and Roses twist of a song by country/Southern rock band The Marshall Tucker Band. And “Fox of the Run” is another great bluegrass cover of a song by Tony Hazzard.

The other half of the songs is a blend of standards and covers of Celtic rock bands. “Galway Girl” is a fantastic song, but nowadays every single band is recording their own version. "Mari Mac” gets an electric treatment based on the Great Big Sea’s arrangements. The traditional shanty “Heave Away” is a standout number together with the opening track “Drunken Sailor”. But my fave songs on the album are “Lamenter’s Lament” and “Home for a Rest”. The former is a song by The Town Pants, while the latter is the kick-ass anthem by Spirit of the West. Raglan Road deliver their own rocking version without the traditional tunes.The album is over with a respectful cover of Dropkick Murphys/Woody Guthrie classic song “Shipping up to Boston”.

Raglan Road
debut album is Canadian party music at its best. Sometimes their approach reminds me of that of Derina Harvey Band, as they also covered “Drunken Sailor”, “Galway Girl” and “Mull River Shuffle”. The instrumentation may be different, but the band from the Canadian prairie and the band from the Maritimes have the same spirit. Grab a pint and sing-along

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


released February 21, 2018
