THE PUBCRAWLERS / THE OUTSIDERS "Vintage Brews & Punkabilly Blues" (2012)

The Pubcrawlers/The Outsiders "Vintage Brews & Punkabilly Blues"
Release date: 13 January 2012
Running time: 30:26, 11 tracks + Flipping the tape

The Pubcrawlers have released a split album with their mates The Outsiders. Every band has recorded 5 songs and the last track features both bands playing together under the name The Pubsiders. The Pubcrawlers have covered 5 well-known Celtic standards and The Outsiders five country/rock’n’roll classics.

The New England Celtic punk band has always included several Celtic standards on their previous albums and that’s what they have chosen to whet the fans’ appetite (apparently, a full Pubcrawlers album is coming soon). Curiously, three of these songs were recorded by The Pogues and another one by Canadian stars Great Big Sea.

The first track, “Danny Boy”, gets the Pubcrawlers treatment: banjo, fiddle and pipes together with great background vocals. The Pubcrawlers add a lot of passion to a song that normally is quite calm. In fact, their rendition is so good that it has been included in PaddyRock vol. 4.

The next track is “Greenland Whalefishers”. It is performed at a slower pace than The Pogues version and has an amazing tune in the middle. Once again, awesome pipes and fiddle along the song and a superb end with mandolin and fiddle.

Song number three, “Home Boys Home”, features tin whistle instead of pipes. It’s maybe the less interesting Pubcrawlers number on the split. I mean that it’s not so “innovative” as the other covers.

The Night Pat Murphy Died” is played at a fast pace, another standard Celtic punk version. Fortunately we are talking about The Pubcrawlers, not about Fiddler’s Green, and the song is not a mirror of the Great Big Sea’s version.

Their last number, “South Australia”, is together with tracks no. 1 and 2, a top-notch song. Rockabilly bass, great drums solo, powerful guitar, excellent fiddle and kick-ass gang vocals. A rendition that you had never heard before.

Another point that should be mentioned is that The Pubcrawlers have shown an evolution (sort of) regarding vocals. Many tracks on “One Too Many Again” featured pirate vocals. This is not the case now and I feel that this is an improvement.

As far as The Outsiders are concerned, if you like both Johnny Cash and the Hot Pants, you will enjoy them. Just check “Six Days on the Road”, an amazing song.

Review by Kinksmarkham


Some of you love the Saw Doctors and some of you don't like them. Anyway, this is the new ROIO, The Saw Doctors Radio Sessions

(from Wikipedia)

Origins and line-up

The Saw Doctors were formed in 1986 by Leo Moran (formerly a member of defunct Tuam reggae band, Too Much for the White Man), Davy Carton (formerly a songwriter and guitarist with short-lived Tuam punk band Blaze X), and local vocalist Mary O'Connor. The trio got their start playing small gigs in local venues such as Tuam's Imperial Hotel. O'Connor left the group the following year to emigrate to London. Carton and Moran added other musicians, and carried on with the band.

Moran and Carton have been the only constant presences in the Saw Doctors' ever-shifting line-up. Past members have included musical artist, producer and co producer of the bands debut album, John "Turps" Burke 87 to 93; bass player Pearse Doherty; keyboard and accordion player Tony Lambert; keyboard player and guitarist Derek Murray; and drummers Padraig Stevens, John Donnelly, Jimi Higgins, and Fran Breen. The fluidity of the band's line-up in part accounts for the variety of musical influences, including pop, punk, rock and roll, and traditional Irish, that make up the band's signature sound.

At present, the Saw Doctors are Leo Moran (vocals, guitar), Davy Carton (vocals, guitar), Kevin Duffy (keyboards), Anthony Thistlethwaite (bass guitar, saxphone), and Rickie O'Neill (drums).
Rise to fame

The Saw Doctors rose to gain national attention during 1987 and 1988 as they toured in support of popular Irish bands such as the Hothouse Flowers and The Stunning. They also proved to be a success when they played at the 1988 Galway Arts Festival. In the spring of 1988, when The Saw Doctors were playing a six-week residency at the Quays Bar in Galway, their live show attracted the attention of The Waterboys, who were then recording their Fisherman's Blues album in nearby Spiddal. Pub sessions and budding friendships among the two groups would prove fruitful for the Saw Doctors' future, and would see eventual crossovers between the two groups. The band's current bass player, Anthony Thistlethwaite, and former drummer, Fran Breen, have both been members of The Waterboys.

In the autumn of 1988, The Saw Doctors filmed a rockumentary on a flat-bed truck while driving between Galway and Salthill. A parody of U2's newly released Rattle and Hum film, in which U2 played Bob Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower" from a flat-bed truck in San Francisco, The Saw Doctors' Crackle and Buzz had its world premiere at the Claddagh Palace Cinema in Galway. The Saw Doctors played live from the cinema's balcony, caricaturing the short acoustic set U2 played atop the Savoy Cinema on O'Connell Street when Rattle and Hum premiered there on 27 October 1988. Footage from the tongue-in-cheek stunt was featured on RTÉ's main evening news.

In late 1988 and early 1989, The Saw Doctors accompanied The Waterboys on tours of Ireland and Great Britain. In August 1989, The Waterboys' frontman Mike Scott produced the band's first single, "N17," a song about an Irish emigrant longing to be driving on the N17 national route which connects Galway with Co. Mayo and Co. Sligo, psssing through the Saw Doctors' hometown of Tuam. Although "N17" did not chart upon its original release, the band's appearance at the inaugural 1990 Féile music festival in Thurles, County Tipperary, cemented their reputation as a live act. The song became known as the band's anthem.

Following their success at Féile, the band released their second single, "I Useta Lover," a humorously off-colour paean to an ex-girlfriend. The single topped the Irish charts in September 1990 and spent nine weeks at number one, becoming Ireland's all-time best-selling single. A re-released "N17" reached number one in the Irish charts at Christmas 1990, and the following year, the band's debut album If This Is Rock and Roll, I Want My Old Job Back entered the Irish albums chart at number one.

In 1992 the band released their second Album All The Way From Tuam, which included live favorites "Green & Red Of Mayo", "Exhilarating Sadness" and "You Got Me On The Run" as well as the singles "Wake Up Sleeping", "Pied Piper", "Never Mind The Strangers", "Me Heart Is Living In The Sixties Still" and their next number one hit, "Hay Wrap". After the release of All The Way From Tuam the band parted company with Warner Music, and formed their own record label Shamtown Records.

The first release under their new Shamtown label was the "Small Bit Of Love" EP which gained them their first Top 30 hit in the UK Singles Chart and an appearance on BBC Television's Top Of The Pops.

The band released their third studio album Same Oul' Town in February 1996. It went on to peak at number six in the UK Albums Chart. It included the hit singles "World Of Good", "To Win Just Once" and the double A-side "Clare Island" / "Everyday". However, the hit singles dried up for the band after the success of Same Oul' Town. Many line-up changes happened over the next few years. However, the band had successful British and US tours, as well as appearing at the Glastonbury Festival and Oxegen.

In October 1998, their fourth album Songs From Sun Street was released, which included tracks that had been part of the live show for the previous few years including "Galway & Mayo", "Tommy K" & "I'll Be On My Way". They also appeared in the 1999 Walter Foote film The Tavern as well as contributing songs to its soundtrack.

The fifth studio album Villains? was released in 2001 and contained the minor hit "This Is Me". said in its review "to many music fans they're a novelty act that's long since passed its sell-by date. It would be a shame, however, if their dodgy image obscured the music, since Villains? is by some distance the best album they've ever made."

Pearse Doherty left the band after the touring of Villains? was completed leaving only Carton and Moran as members from the early days. The line-up changed to include Anthony Thistlethwaite on bass guitar. Thistlethwaite had been playing saxophone on and off with the band since the late 1980s, even playing on their first single "N17".

Live In Galway was released on CD and DVD in 2004. Another live album, Live On News Years Day as well as the sixth studio album The Cure followed. Their career was giving a boost when at the 2008 Meteor Irish Music Awards, The Saw Doctors received the Lifetime Achievement Award. The week before the Meteor Awards the band appeared on the Podge & Rodge Show on RTE. When on the show they covered The Sugababes song "About You Now", and later decided to release the track as a single. In October 2008 "About You Now" reached number one in the Irish chart, some seventeen years since their last chart-topping feat.

They followed this with the release of another live album and DVD, Live At The Melody Tent, recorded in Cape Cod in the summer of 2008. "She Loves Me" charted at number two. In 2009 after six studio albums, Universal Music released To Win Just Once - The Best of The Saw Doctors. The compilation album featured twenty two of their tracks, and went platinum within weeks of release.

During 2010 the band played a number of music festival appearances, including playing at the 40th anniversary of the Glastonbury Festival. September 2010 saw the release of their seventh album, The Further Adventures of... The Saw Doctors.

Their cover version of "Downtown", recorded with its original singer Petula Clark, was released on 11 December 2011.

Live shows and recordings

Although the Saw Doctors have released only seven studio albums over their two-decade career, their live shows have brought them international renown. In 2004, the band recorded its show before a crowd at the Black Box Theatre, Galway, and released a live audio CD and a concert DVD, both titled Live in Galway. The DVD also contained a 50-minute documentary, "A Different Kind of World," following the Saw Doctors around their favourite locales in the West of Ireland (including a trip to Clare Island) and showing them on tour in Brooklyn, New York. A follow-up live album, New Year's Day, again featured the band in the Black Box Theatre, this time on New Year's Day 2005. The band donated profits from this album to victims of 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake.

The band performed three songs at Celtic Park, Glasgow on 21 November 2006 before Celtic F.C.'s UEFA Champions League match with Manchester United F.C..
Other projects

The Saw Doctors' song "She Says" is used as the theme song to the BBC Northern Ireland comedy series Give My Head Peace. Under the name "The Folk Footballers," Leo Moran and former Saw Doctor Padraig Stevens released The First Fifteen, a collection of songs that celebrated the Galway football team in the wake of its success in the 1998 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship. Re-released in 2001, when Galway again won the All-Ireland football championship, the album included a host of local talent. Further collaborations brought a self-titled album by another side-project band, The Shambles". Guinness used the Saw Doctors song "Never Mind the Strangers" in an advertisement campaign for Harp Lager in the US. The Saw Doctors made an appearance in The Tavern and "Same Oul' Town" was featured in the film. The Saw Doctors appeared on the 2007 Killinascully Christmas special. The band reappeared in 2010 Killinascully Christmas special


The Saw Doctors have a rabid international fan base that has been compared to that of the Grateful Dead. Fueled by those in Ireland as well as those of Irish descent in the US, UK, and elsewhere, this unofficial fan club prides itself on seeing the band live as many times as possible. They meet online in a forum on the band's website and pursue ongoing global conversations about the band.

Lottery win

In April 1993, the Saw Doctors' keyboard and accordion player Tony Lambert, who had previously played with Bonnie Tyler and The Sensational Alex Harvey Band, won £852,000 (Irish punts), or approximately €1 million (euro) in today's currency, when he hit the jackpot in the Irish National Lottery's Lotto game. Lambert, who at the time was living in a converted bus that he had driven from his native Wales to Galway and parked just off the N17 road, had purchased his winning ticket in a local Claregalway shop. After his win, he left the band and settled in County Galway, where he restored an old house and built his own recording studio.

Coincidentally, the Saw Doctors' song "To Win Just Once" was written and recorded shortly before Lambert hit the Lotto jackpot. It is the only song on the Same Oul' Town album that features his musicianship.

REVIEW - WILD COLONIAL BHOYS "Heads or Tails" (2011)

Wild Colonial Bhoys "Heads or Tails" Steel Creek Records SCR-37189
Release date: August 2011
Running Time: CD1 49:49, 11 tracks; CD2 27:57, 6 tracks

Wild Colonial BhoysHeads or Tails” reached no. 9 at Paddyrock’s Best of 2011 list. I got this album for review in January and I have needed more hearings than usual to appreciate it. So I could say that it’s an acquired taste.

The band evolved from an acoustic duo to a full band (electric and acoustic guitars, fiddle, bass, drums and, sometimes, mandolin) and this 2 CD album covers both ends: “Heads” is an 11 track CD (full band) and “Tails” is a 6 track covers CD (acoustic duo). Wild Colonial Bhoys are not your standard Celtic rock band and they are no easy to file. I have tried and I feel that maybe they are somewhere between The Indulgers and The Bollox.

The tracks to check out would be “Friday Night” (an excellent song), “I am Ireland Part II”, “No Place I’d Rather Be”, “Hoping for a Better Day” and the great instrumental “One Night in Seehan’s”. Regarding the second CD, I would pick up their renditions of U2Sunday Bloody Sunday” and The Wolfe TonesRock on Rockall”.

If I had to think again my Top Ten 2011 list, I wouldn’t change it. However, this doesn’t mean that Wild Colonial Bhoys are not worth hearing. They're different, but interesting.!/wcbhoys

"NCA formed in 2009 as a horror punk band in Doylestown. Things took a turn for the worse between members, soon after new members joined. NCA then took a new route, and decided to switch their genre to Celtic Punk. Songs were recorded DIY in the guitarists basement. Soon, NCA had a album complete.

We have played shows all over Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and a few in New York as well. JAC Radio has added NCA to its list of well played songs, as well as a few other online radio stations. We have had the pleasure of playing alongside bands like The Hub City Stompers, FOOL, Flatfoot 56, Faithless Heroes, Wrong Answer, and more.

NCA took a small break and is now back for 2012, yep. With more members than ever, NCA will re-record some of the best songs, and write a few more, and put out a new record this Spring. Ultra dominating the fuck outta this world/hate your parents/anarchy/fuck you/yep."

Official music video for The Good Ship's fifth single "Seven Seas".

Produced by Cartel Film Production:
Director: Davros El Davros
Producer: Katherine Cooke
DOP: Tristan Houghton and Davros El Davros
Edit: Tristan Houghton
Online and VFX: Davros El Davros

Styling: The Good Ship

It's been nearly two years since The Good Ship stormed the beaches with their debut album Avast! Wretched Sea.

That album saw them receive rave reviews from around the world, a slew of festival spots including Woodford and an invited performance at Brisbane Festival, and a legion of dedicated fans. Now they are nearing completion of their second full- length, due for release mid 2012. To get the ball rolling they're launching the first single "Seven Seas" with an East Coast tour throughout April.

"Seven Seas" is sung from the perspective of a sea dog locked in a prison cell for murder, not regretting his actions but only lamenting the fact that he cannot reach his beloved ocean. The song is typical of the band's musical approach, with an upbeat and jaunty feel hiding a dark and morbid sentiment.

The Working Class Symphony "Satu Jiwa" Trapin Merch (2012)
Released date: March 2012
Running Time:  19:29, 7 tracks

The Working Class Symphony is a new band from Indonesia. Normally, most of the Celtic punk bands from this country state that they are influenced by street punk and oi! bands such as Dropkick Murphys, Rancid or Cock Sparrer. In this case, the name of the band is too clear: “The Working Class”. Moreover, the cover shows a skinhead with a big hammer on his left hand and a pitbull on the other hand in front of a big factory.

So, before listening to the  EP I thought that it would be strongly influenced by the British oi! scene from the 80’s. Then I had a look to the song titles and I had a different feelings: “Do You Love Me”, “Broken Heart”, “I Don’t Care” …. Ramones ??????

It was obvious that I had to listen to the songs to have the answer. Seven tracks, one instrumental, one "Irish Rover" cover and five originals. Five are sung in English and one in their mother tongue. Lyrics mainly about (unrequited) loves. The sound,  different, based on fiddle, mandolin and guitar. No aggressive side. No, these guys play a different kind of oi!. Melodic oi!, South East Asian oi! influenced by the Malaysian band A.C.A.B. Another vision of the skinhead life that is advanced on the opening track title: "Jigs and HAPPINESS".

Check out their catchy songs with the Ramones inspired titles, after a while you’ll realize that you’re singing along. And "Satu Jiwa”, the song in Indonesian (a more stripped down song) is worth hearing too.

The Working Class Symphony first EP is not flawless. The band have to improve both their vocals and technique. But we are sure that they’ll do, since they are young and they have just started. Their passion and almost "naïf" spirit are  strong elements that any Celtic punk fan will be able to appreciate. A quite enjoyable EP.


1 - Intro - Jigs and Happiness 1:10
2 - Do You Love Me ? 2:41
3 - Broken Heart 3:35
4 - I Don't Care 1:41

13. “Catch Fire” – Mischief Brew *

* Previously unreleased



"It's been nearly two years since The Good Ship stormed the beaches with their debut album "Avast! Wretched Sea".

That album saw them receive rave reviews from around the world, a slew of festival spots including Woodford and an invited performance at Brisbane Festival, and a legion of dedicated fans. Now they are nearing completion of their second full- length, due for release mid 2012. To get the ball rolling they're launching the first single "Seven Seas" with an East Coast tour throughout April.
"Seven Seas" is sung from the perspective of a sea dog locked in a prison cell for murder, not regretting his actions but only lamenting the fact that he cannot reach his beloved ocean. The song is typical of the band's musical approach, with an upbeat and jaunty feel hiding a dark and morbid sentiment.

For a limited time you can download the song for free from Bandcamp.

They're even giving away an extra free B-side, their cover of Ween's "Object". At the same place.

Friday 13 April - The Vanguard, Sydney - with the Green Mohair Suits and Sister Jane

Fire on McGinnis "Bedlam Boys"

Directed and animated by Dominik Litwiniak. Song by Fire on McGinnis.

"Bedlam Boys" is a song about the St. Mary Bethlehem hospital in London (now called Bethlem Royal Hospital) which housed the insane. During the 18th century it was a popular diversion to visit the hospital to watch the antics of the poor inmates. Admission was one penny and it is said the hospital realized an income of four hundred pounds a year from visitors.

Fire on McGinnis "Foggy Dew"

Produced by Light Within Productions U.K. "Foggy Dew" by Fire on McGinnis is a song about the 1916 Easter Uprising in Ireland. The rising was mounted by Irish republicans with the aims of ending British rule and establishing the Irish Republic.

The Fire on McGinnis arrangement of Foggy Dew is meant to build to energy and, in doing so, crosses the boundries of Irish, Celtic, and Alternative rock.
