REVIEW - THE ROYAL SPUDS "Wanted: Drunk' n 'Alive" (2013)

The Royal Spuds "Wanted Drunk'n'Alive" Self-released
Release date: July 27,  2013
Running time: 39:08, 10 tracks

Well, these guys are really running fast! Milan Boom (lead guitar, backing vocals), Maarteen van Vlit (lead vocals, banjo), Mark de Jong (drums), Michael Silver (accordion, whistle, vocals), Robin Janssens (rhythm guitar) and Dave Schriverjs (bass)  released an EP at the end of 2012 and they have already delivered their debut album.

Banjo and accordion are present all along the album. But I would say that The Royal Spuds trade mark is their rocking guitar work. Hard rock, hardcore,  ska or ballads can be heard on “Drunk’n’Alive”, and there is always electric guitar there.

After a spoken intro, “Drunk’n’Alive” is the real opening track. The lyrics create a sort of a  Quentin Tarantino/Robert Rodriguez movie atmosphere. Musically, the song is based on the English melodeon player John KirkpatrickJump at the Sun” jig.

The next number is a great cover of “Molly Maguires”. Curiously, this Irish American song has been covered by similar European artist Circle J and Finnegan’s Hell.

Duncan McIntyre” is a song about a Scottish piper that died while he was playing the pipes to his regiment in El Alamein during World War II. There are no pipes played on this song, but tin whistle.

The ska-infused “Drill Ye Tarriers, Drill” is another North American number.

The following song, “Whiskey Tango Hotel”, is a hardcore number. Once again, the lyrics could be inspired by  Tarantino/ Rodriguez imagery.

A night Like This” is one of my faves. As a lot of songs on this album, it’s about drinking and pub’s life. A catchy Celtic punk song.

Last Call: Unnecessarily Expanded Edition” is a new version of one of the songs from their previous EP. More lyrics about pub and booze on a brilliant metal ballad with some guests on violin and cello.

Forgotten Friday” is a fast-paced tale about drinking too much. A guest plays didgeridoo on this track.

The last song is the band’s version of “The Irish Rover”. Even if their rendition is interesting and there is also a ska part,  IMHO no more versions of this song are needed.

The Royal Spuds have been able to improve their musical offer with this album. Probably one of the best guitar oriented Celtic punk rock bands out there.

REVIEW - DELILAH'S REVENGE s/t album (2013)

Delilah's Revenge - s/t
Release date: August 10, 2013
Running time: 34:34, 11 tracks

Delilah’s Revenge released one of  the most interesting EPs from 2012. Their musical approach was similar to that of Lexington Field: a fiddle based sound and a love for quality both on production and composition.  The band from Colorado has just released their  self-titled album and, if you are looking for original and innovative bands, this is a must have for you.

The line-up has had some changes.  Justin (guitar), Giuseppe (drums) and Karen (violin) remain in the band and the “new faces” are Tim on vocals and Phil on cello. And this is the main feature on the band’s sound: the interaction between violin and cello.

The album has been recorded and mixed by Nick Ryan, who also produced and played bass on their EP. Their three self-penned songs off their previous work have been rearranged : “Our Separate Ways”, “Tamlin/Catharsis”, “One Thousand Miles from Home” and “The Shoreman’s Lament”.

Regarding the new tracks, there are three top-notch songs. “The Battle of Bloody Lane” is an excellent song featuring “The Battle of Aughrim”.  “Not the Life for Me” is another kick-ass number  on which the band shifts the beat from slow to lively. And the opening number “Nothing You Can Do” is a fast-paced catchy song. By the way, the vocals are clear, Tim’s diction is very good. So if English is not you mother tongue, don’t worry: you won’t need to read the lyrics.

Those songs are brilliant, but the sets of tunes are second to none. “The Banshee/Haste to the Wedding”, “Farewell to Ireland/Gravel Walk”  and “Road to Lisdoonvarna/Swallowtail Jig” are Delilah’s Revenge at it best:  fantastic fiddle supported by two masters on cello and drums. I recommend you to listen to other kick-ass versions of these tunes to enjoy all of them and to appreciate Delilah’s Revenge’s work under a different light (“The Banshee” has been covered by Oysterband under the title “McMahon’s” on their “Alive and Acoustic” album; “Farewell to Erin" can be heard on McDermott’s 2 Hours closing number on “The Enemy Within”, it’s the last tune on their set titled “Paddy on The Level”: Levellers recorded “Gravel Walk” on their acoustic album “Drunk in Public” under the name “Irish Tune”;  “The Road to Lisdoonvarna” can be found on The Pubcrawlers latest album “Rogues Outlaws &  Drunks”; and “Swallotail Jig” is the track no. 9 on The Kilmaine Saints second album “Drunken Redemption”)

Delilah’s Revenge are sharing the stage again with Lexington Field next Friday 27 September.  I wish I could go to Denver, since it’s a marriage made in heaven. I guess that fans who love “rough at the edges” bands will find Delilah’s Revenge not raucous enough. But, believe me, they are one of the most  appealing bands in the Celtic rock scene today.

REVIEW - BLACK WATER COUNTY "Welcome to the Black Water County" EP (2013)

Black Water County "Welcome to the Black Water County" Self-released
Release date: August 17, 2013
Running time: 22:16, 6 tracks

2013 is a fantastic year for the Celtic/folk punk scene from the South West of England. This is the third review that I post about a band from Dorset: firstly The JackRatts, then The Devil’s Rejects and now Black Water County.

The quintet from Bournemouth has some points in common with their neighbours The JackRatts: both of them are very young and both of them have written some pirate songs. Anyway, Black Water County have their own sound and their instrumentation is a little bit different: guitars, banjo/mandolin, tin whistle/melodica, bass and drums.

Welcome to the Black Water County”, their debut EP, consists of 4 self-penned songs, one Ewan MacColl cover and one Irish standard. The band is really tight if we take into account that they were formed at the beginning of the year. I would like to draw your attention to their banjo sound, which is in line with the likes of BlackEyed Dempseys and Vagrant Nation, two new bands from the USA.

Track one and track two are a couple of booze songs. As it has been said, they featured first class banjo picking together with great chorus. “Happy Drunk” is about a guy whose driving force is drinking . “Steaming” is the usual tale: older people blame on young people because they only think in booze and girls, but they behaved the same way when they were young.  I love the end of the song with banjo, whistle and guitar.

Folk Sh*t Up” is another excellent lively banjo number. It has a slight The Skels influence and, IMHO, is the best song on the EP. Kick-ass number with an enjoyable end: guitar, banjo, clapping and “wo  wo wo” sing-a-long chorus.

I feel that “Pirate Song” is the second best song on “Welcome to Black Water County”. This is a mandolin driven number that everybody should be singing on “Talk Like a Pirate Day”.

Normally I prefer original compositions to covers, but I understand that new bands need time to write their own songs.  Fortunately, BWC have chosen the right track order and the covers have been placed at the end of the EP. The two covers on the EP are OK, but I feel that BWC are not as comfortable as they are when they play their own tunes. “Dirty Old Town” is fair; it’s also a mandolin number and it features an interesting guitar work on the “I’m gonna make me a big sharp axe” part. “Irish Rover” is better. It’s an upbeat banjo version and lead vocals are shared by  Tim (boy) and Shan (girl).

The following sentence is stated on the liner notes“ As with every good thing in life this EP starts with a pint of stout”. BWC are right, grab your pint and enjoy this fine EP. I’m looking forward to drinking more pints when their debut album is out.

1 - The Happy Drunk 3:31
2 - Steaming 4:10
3 - Folk Sh*t Up (Wo Wo Wo) 3:49
4 - The Pirate Song 3:38
5 - Dirty Old Song 3:28
6 - Irish Rover 3:37

Wednesday, September 18, 2013


Dorset based Celtic folk/punk band Black Water County are releasing their debut single  'The Pirate Song' on 19th September 2013 otherwise known as 'International Talk Like a Pirate Day'. This swashbuckling cracker is the first single from BWC and is lifted from their new 6 track E.P. launched recently at Mr Kyps in Poole. Since forming in February, Black Water County are setting the local music scene ablaze with their exciting foot stompin' live performances, featuring superb renditions of Irish classics and popular songs from bands such as the Pogues and Dropkick Murphys, as well as a smattering of skillfully crafted original tunes. This is the video to accompany 'The Pirate Song' .

Black Water County are a 5 piece band featuring the combined talents of:

Tim Harris (age 18) - lead vocals/bass guitar - reading Engineering at Portsmouth University
Shan Byrom (age 18) - lead and backing vocals/tin whistle/melodica - studying Fine Art at Bournemouth and Poole College
Brad Hutchings-Clarke (age 19) - rhythm guitar/backing vocals - designer
Gavin Coles (age 19) - lead guitar/mandolin/banjo/backing vocals - technician
Andy L Smooth (age 19) - backing vocals/drums/percussion - musician
BWC takes it's name from Ireland's famous 'black water' i.e. Guinness/Murphys, which the band enjoys at every opportunity!

Shan and Brad's family provide the Irish connection, with Paddy, Brad's Dad a.k.a. The Shirt, assisting with graphic design (check out the flag on the Pirate Song artwork) as well as additional lyric ideas.

All original songs are collaborative writing efforts, with each member of the band contributing to the end result

The band's motto's of 'Folk Sh*t Up' and 'Love the band, hate the floor' are becoming well-known in East Dorset, encouraging audiences to stamp their feet and sing/dance along with the band

Each original tune on the EP tells a tale:

'The Pirate Song' is BWC's first release - to coincide with International Talk Like A Pirate Day and evolved from a whimsical riff created by Gavin, with lyric input from 'The Shirt'
'Folk Sh*t Up' (aka The Wo Wo Wo Song) is the band's version of stadium folk
'Steamin'' and 'Happy Drunk' were written to celebrate the band's roots in local pub culture

REVIEW - BRUTUS' DAUGHTERS "Beating Beyond Folk Ashes" (2013)

Brutus' Daughters "Beating Beyond Folk Ashes" Self-released
Release date: August 2013
Running time: 31:15, 10 tracks

Whatever happened to Brutus’ Daughters? The folk punk band from Madrid became extremely popular among Celtic punk fans in 2010/2011. Paula (lead vocals), Rebe (drums), Charly (bass), Pablo (rhythm guitar), Pitxe (lead guitar & vocals), Noel (fiddle) and Xipla (Asturian bagpipes) released their 8 track debut album under Creative Commons licence and soon it was available everywhere. They were one of the bands that covered The Mahones on the Whiskey Devils tribute album and they began to play big outdoor festivals in Spain and Poland.

Brutus’ Daughters were running too fast, but Paula moved to Germany because of her studies and she couldn’t stay with the band. This situation put a damper on the band’s progression. Brutus’ Daughters were obliged to find a new singer, obviously a girl. Brutus’ Daughters MK I was over.

Fortunately, Alex (Alejandra) joined the band and Brutus’ Daughters MK II began to gig around Spain and a lot of songs that should make their second album were polished on stage.

Once again, reality hit hard and three band members left the band for different reasons. The remaining members (Alex, Rebe, Pablo and Xipla) made up their minds: “show must go on”. Rak (bass) and Lorena (fiddle) came on board and Brutus’ Daughters MK III played gigs in Spain and Italy and while they kept on writing new songs.

Finally, Brutus’ Daughters entered the studio last April. Once again, they trusted in Anne at Geek Records. They had worked together when The MahonesTake Me Back” cover was recorded. The final result (“Beating Beyond Folk Ashes”) is a real roots-rock-rebel album.

Anne has recorded, mixed and mastered the album and has produced it together with Brutus’ Daughters. All the elements that define Brutus’ Daughters music are there: fast-paced anthems, female vocals, top-notch fiddle and pipes playing, lyrics about sexuality, mass media, a love and hate song to the city they live in…. Anne has become a 7th member of the band and most of the songs and the band sound have been improved. I ‘m particularly impressed with the pipes and the fiddle sound. Together with the work that old members Pitxe and Noel have done. Noel guest on “Nuechi del ñuberu” playing the button accordion and Pitxe has been in charge of the background vocals.

The ten tracks on this labour of love album are really amazing. 

Six Beers” used to be an intro with no lyrics, but it evolved into a sing-a-long drinking song. “Big Fish & Fisherwomen” is the perfect sea shanty. Excellent vocal harmonies on this track. “Y mientras tanto” is one of the new songs. Brutus’ Daughters MK III picked up a tune and some ideas that have been put on the shelves by the previous incarnation of the band and gave them a new lease of life.

The core of the album starts with “Raising”. This upbeat song was formerly known as “Grandpa O’Brien”. Brilliant vocals harmonies at the beginning of the track, gang vocals along the song and fantastic traditional sounding pipes at the end. “Break Down Roles” is a new number written by the current line-up and one of the best songs on the album. The usual battle between pipes and fiddle is featured on this song. A kick-ass folk/punk song. “Nuechi del ñuberu” is the new title for “La Danzina”. It’s the only song in Asturian language and different creatures in  Asturian mythology are mentioned: bruxa, cuélebre, trasgu, ñuberu. This song has different parts: a lively folk part, a punk-rock part, an accordion and pipes part  and the last one (the woah shouts), that comes from a well-known song about a mining disaster. “Mala Prensa” is another highlight and the band is really tight on this: lead vocals, background vocals, guitar, bass, fiddle and pipes. Hats-off!

No Battle” is another new song that runs before one of the top3 songs on “Beating Beyond Folk Ashes”: “Ciudad de las Alturas”, a song about Madrid. Brutus’ Daughters live in Madrid, but the city itself has its own life. Vocals are shared by Alex and Yto (the Fucking Fuckers singer ) In fact, when the song was written it was intended to be sung by Yto too.

The last track on the album is “They Won’t Turn Back”. I appreciate when a band writes their own material and doesn’t record the usual covers. I prefer that traditional tunes are placed inside self-penned songs. And this is one of those songs, some traditional tunes are played. One of them, “Morrison’s Jig”, is performed in such a way that it sounds different. By the way, awesome percussion by Rebe at the beginning of the song.

Brutus’ Daughters are alive and kicking. These 4 girls and 2 guys are showing that a band doesn’t need to sound like Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly or The Pogues to be a real Celtic folk punk outfit. Welcome back Brutus’!

REVIEW - THE WAKES "The Red and The Green" (2013)

The Wakes "The Red and The Green" Big Hooley Records
Release Date: 17 August 2013
Running time. 38:40, 11 tracks

The Celtic/folk punk scene in the UK is very active. There are “pirate” bands, such as Captain Bastard & The Scallywags or The Jack Ratts; bands moving the boundaries of the genre, such as The Roughneck Riot, Smokey Bastard or The Lagan, and bands with a bigger Irish stamp such as Neck, BibleCode Sundays and the Scottish band The Wakes.

The band from Glasgow has a strong following both among Celtic Football Fans in the UK and St. Pauli fans in Germany. “The Red in the Green” is their fourth album. The album artwork is a sort of a 3D picture. Keep calm! No special device is needed to listen to the album: piano and sax are played on some songs, but the trad. instruments (whistles, flute and mandolin) are always there.

I guess that the band’s sound is evolving and therefore two kind of songs can be heard on the album: more mature efforts and “basic” or “straight” songs.

Songs from the first type would be the opening track “Colours” (it’s not a  The Men They Couldn’t Hang cover, but an original song with a  BibleCode Sundays twist featuring sax ), “8.30 am Glasgow Cross”, “Myth of Return” ( a couple of Waterboys sounding numbers featuring piano), “The Brave” and “Until the Last” ( two Christy Moore infused songs).

The most “Celtic punk” numbers would be “Men to Be Feared” (my fave, a catchy song featuring fantastic flute), “John MacLean’s March” (a cover, probably the most Scottish number on the album, great flute on this too), “Never Again” (an antifa ska number) and “To Hell or California” (imagine Michael McGoldrick playing flute with The Men They Couldn’t Hang on “Rosettes” and you get the sound of this kick-ass song)

Fans that miss The Electrics will appreciate this album. Their music approach is not exactly the same, but both bands are the ambassadors of the Irish culture in Scotland.

 Track list:

01. Colours 4:10
02. To Hell or California 2:55
03. Men to Be Feared 2:27
04. Empire of Skulls 3:08

REVIEW - BASTARDS ON PARADE "Empty Bottles and Broken Things" (2013)

Bastards on Parade "Empty Bottles and Broken Things" Wolverine Records WRR196
Release date: 30 August 2013
Running time: 29:23, 14 tracks

The long awaited Bastards on Parade’s second album was released last week and the band is already touring Europe. A couple of tracks off their previous EP “Shallow Waters” (the self-titled track and “Old Man’s Booze”),  the track for Carnage compilation (“Landlord”), one Galician traditional number (“Quen Tenha Vinho”) one self-penned instrumental (“As Marinhas”) and ten original new songs. “Empty Bottles and Broken Things” remains faithful to the band's evolution.  Their Galician roots are present and the punk-rock side of the band is stronger than ever too. In fact, the album has been mixed by Johnny Rioux (Street Dogs) and mastered in the USA by Dan Randall.

Apart from the well-known numbers from previous releases, my fave tracks on the album are “Drunken Haze”(a catchy number, brilliant bass, background vocals and pipes), “Bootleggers” (jumping accordion, r'n'r bass line and fantastic wo wo background vocals), “The Drifter” (it could have been a perfect instrumental, but it turns into a kick-ass song), “Weight of the World” (a great opening track featuring excellent guitar and mandolin work) and “Quen tenha vinho” (21st Celtury rock bravú).

Some of the songs are very short, less than 2 minutes, and no track runs more than 3 minutes. The CD running time is less than 30 minutes (like most of the Ramones albums) and The Clash influences can be heard on tracks such as “Weight of the World”, “Drunken Haze” or even on “Bootleggers”. However, the whole album is not a classic punk album, but a fresh and up-to-date punk rock album. This is due to the band’s own ideas and production, but also to Johnny Rioux work. Guitar, mandolin and bass sounds, together with background vocals, are the winners on his mix.  Perhaps the pipes and tin whistle sounds are a little bit hidden on the mix on some tracks. IMHO, an in yer face pipes/tin whistle sound would be needed in tracks such as “Outcasts” “Bootleggers” or  “The Drifter”.

The winds are blowing on the right direction and Bastards on Parade discography keeps on sailing at high speed. Besides, the Galician guys have signed with a strong German label that will give a boost to their career. Check out Bastards on Parade tour dates and don’t miss them when they are playing at your town. Remember, they are looking forward to delivering their punk folk shanties to the USA and Canada fans.

REVIEW - DIE DØDELSÄCKE "Volle Kraft Voraus" (2013)

Die  DØdelsäcke "Volle Kraft Voraus" Punk089
Release date: 2013
Running time: 44:14 13 tracks + 1 hidden track

Die DØdelsäcke, the Kings of the German bagpipes punk are back! After having released their masterpiece  (“Crashtest’89”) I was wondering if they would be able to issue something similar. The guys from Ruhrpott have decided that they should remain faithful to their musical conception: if something works, there is no need to change it. So, “Volle Kraft Voraus” puts together musical influences from German punk, The Real McKenzies and comedy punk. Die DØdelsäcke have met again with Andreas “Gozer” Frank, who has recorded, mixed and mastered “Volle Kraft Voraus”. The result is a kick-ass album, maybe not as good as the previous one, but an album that every bagpipes punk fan will enjoy.

The album starts with an intro that is exactly the outro of the previous album: “The Water is Wide”. It’s the same tune, but it has been recorded in a different way. It was a pipes solo at the end of “Niko MacMohr”. The new version on “Volle Kraft Voraus”  begins slowly, pipes and acoustic guitar together, and then it turns into a real bagpipes punk tune.

The next number is called “Rock’n’Roll Buttefahrt”. Lyrics are by Die DØdelsäcke, but the music is that of the well-known song “Auld Lang Syne”. I thought that The Langer’s Ball’s rendition was the ultimate version, but this one is also a fantastic cover.

Track number three is one of the best songs in the album. “Elvis der Clown” is a tale about a clown that is trying to enjoy a new life after a robbery. “The children are sad now, they have to understand, that a clown needs a rest too.” Funny lyrics.

Influences by The Dubliners/Blood or Whiskey can be found on “Segeln”, a number on which banjo and tin whistle shine.

Sehet, welch ein Mensch” is a Schliessmuskel cover. Schliessmuskel was a German punk band from the eighties-nineties (thank you Google).  It’s an excellent song with great gang vocals, bagpipes and banjo/mandolin.

Pubsaga-Teil III” is a brilliant punk rock song. Surprisingly, it ends with and acoustic guitar and the vocals are clearer than ever.

Alles wie es sollte” is a different style song. The approach can be linked to Ramones Something to Believe In”.

The following song is “Abgebrannt auf Helgoland”. Once again the Ruhrpott lads put German lyrics to a standard: “The Leaving of Liverpool”. Listen to that pipes and mandolin that go faster and faster. Let alone the drums.

More bagpipes punk can be heard on “Idiot”, another highlight on this album.

My German is a little bit rusty, but I feel  that “Wunderbaum” is about  a couple that have different musical tastes. Apparently,  the guy stays with the bagpipes music and leaves the gal. It’s a great number featuring tin whistle and mandolin.

To finish up, two comedy punk numbers. Die DØdelsäcke usually write songs about special relationships and strange people. “Ich & Ich” is a tale about a guy who is in love with himself. He even introduces himself to his parents! Yes, it sounds a little bit absurd, but it’s a funny song.

Normale Leute” could be linked to a song on “Crashtest’89” titled “Rentner”. The lyrics are about a couple that has been married 40 years. He likes football and she likes to do the household “Every day the same and big worries,  their children have not visited them for ages”. Boring lives.

Finally, there is a hidden track, a sort of a psychobilly song with a bagpipes tribute to "Star Wars"

We know that Die DØdelsäcke are a German speaking band and they don’t intend to sing in English. Anyway, they are a top-notch bagpipes punk band. Fans who enjoy The Real McKenzies, Bastards on Parade or Pipes and Pints should add this album to their music library.

REVIEW - BAGS OF ROCK "The Next Level" (2011)

Bags of Rock "The Next Level" Rolla Records BOR 66601
Release date: 2011
Running time: 58:23, 13 tracks + 1 hidden track

Bags of Rock. A great name for an eight piece band that plays bagpipes rock. G-Man and his Scottish bandmates recorded their debut album “The Next Level” in 2011. The thirteen tracks are a high voltage metal oriented Celtic rock with some programming on several tracks: 
several original instrumentals, together with a couple of self-penned songs and an instrumental rendition of “Whiskey in the Jar” based on Thin Lizzy’s cover.
Some fans could feel that the compositions are a little bit long and there are only two songs. Particularly I think that the album would be better balanced with four songs instead of two. Anyway, it’s obvious that Bags of Rock are a live experience and their gigs must be amazing.

My faves: the set “BOR Intro”/ “Travel Through Time”, “Punching the Bag”, “Whiskey in the Jar” (kick-ass guitar and pipes), “Rain Stain” (featuring a Gordon Duncan´s composition), “Party at the HQ” and “The Heat Goes On” (I love the percussion on this)

VIDEO - THE LANGER'S BALL "Whiskey Chaser"

The Langer's Ball have a new music video out for their song "Whiskey Chaser"

The Langer's Ball - Whiskey Chaser - Official Music Video

Monday, September 2, 2013


As of August this year, officer hat and a black uniform, the trademark outfit of the Brno-based punk combo BOY, will be worn by Vinca, the new drummer. Vinca is a seasoned musician who simultaneously plays with Pipes and Pints and is currently recording a new LP with BOY. His first live appearance with the band is scheduled for 30th November in the S-cube club in the city of Olomouc. Originally, Vinca was only to take care of the recording for BOY’s new album but the band came so intense to him that he decided to join them for good. He is replacing Marten, the original drummer. “I started to consider joining the band only when I was in the studio. The guys in the band are very nice people, they know what they want and they pursue their dreams and this is what I like. Recording was a great experience and there is certainly a lot to look forward to. When you hear the song titled ‘Never break me down’ you will see what I mean” says Vinca.

The album is being recorded in the Brno-based Sonidos studio and the working title is Darkest Visions. Although the process is only in its first half, the recording already features well-known names such as Shawn Smash from Total Chaos or Ronnie King, who has cooperated with NOFX, The Distillers, Pennywise but also with The Offspring. “The recording of the album is definitely not going to be something to save money or time on; we want to put everything in it. Also in the second part of the recording we will have respected musicians working with us and I can tell you already that we are preparing a very special vinyl edition for the Czech Republic. I can guarantee you that you don’t have any record like this at home yet”, teases the vocalist Martino. If all goes according to plans, the album should be ready by this Christmas.

The Band of September 2013 hails from La Belle Province (Quebec): Irish Moutarde. These Canadians will be releasing their long-awaited debut album "Raise'Em All" next September 17th .


Mathieu Audet - guitars, drums, keyboard, lead & back vocals
Fred Vandal - bass, guitar, lead & back vocals
Jérôme Bélanger - lead guitars
Christian Haerinck - great highland bagpipes
Dominic Haerinck - banjo, mandolin
Andrée-Anne Hallé  - lead & back vocals, keyboard, bass
Sébastien Malenfant - drums, guitar, bass, lead & back vocals

About the album:

"Electric guitars, bagpipe and whisky: Celtic rock as it should be"

Add to this banjo, accordion and tin whistle, and this statement sums up well Irish Moutarde’s debut album "Raise 'Em All". This album is a twelve songs party that perfectly blends together rock, punk, Celtic music, even metal! These musical styles are omnipresent, and the mix leads to heavy and rapid pieces or lively and bawdy Irish drinking songs. That's not to say that the guys (Oops! The lads and the lass!) can't turn it down a bit. There’re also some introspective and sweet moments, but not too much! Dynamic vocals, lots of melodies of Celtic influence and many known and lesser-known instruments make a debut album full of energy that fulfills Irish Moutarde's promise that no matter the day you’ll listen to the album, it’ll always be St.Patrick's Day!
