REVIEW - FIRKIN "Finger in the Pie" (2014)

Firkin "Finger in the Pie" Pump Jump Records PJR201401
Release date: 22 February 2014
Running time: 43:06, 14 tracks

Finger in the Pie” is Firkin’s fifth album. Fortunately we are pleased to have reviewed every single release by Budapest finest. Technically it could be said that “Finger in the Pie” is the band’s third studio album; “Igyunk pálinkat” was basically  a re-interpretation of their songs in Hungarian and “Keep on Firkin” a live DVD/CD. Even if some line-up changes have occurred (Bazsi is the new guitarist, and Pali is no longer a full-part member, but a guest), Firkin is as strong as ever. These five guys and a girl don’t let you down. Their music can be crazy, wild, fast-paced, but also  quite,  as gentle as a caress … They master their instruments and they master the tempo, then their albums are always well-balanced master works.

Thirteen songs and one instrumental made it to the new album: eight self-penned songs and six covers of standards and traditional stuff.  Regarding the original material, the band showcases their folkie skills on numbers such as “If I Could Be The Pope”. The first “single” of the album is a great song with interesting background vocals and badass flute and fiddle. “Parasite’s Lost” also features an amazing 70’s sounding flute. The intro is fully acoustic, guitar and flute only, but then the full band delivers an excellent song with a Fiddler’s Green from the Peter Pathos era flavour. “High and Low” is an epic number featuring a strings sextet. Firkin have really spent a lot of time on developing  their own compositions. PJ and his bandmates know that every song has its own life. So, if the song needs additional  musicians, even if they are classically trained artists, they will find them.

Firkin shows their hard rock/ metal end on “The Child of Fire”. Barna’s vocals are incredible, Bazsi’s guitar work impeccable and PJ’s flute perfect. Should I say that I love this song? The next number, "I Am Who I Am",  has the classic Firkin’s stamp at the beginning. The listener is then surprised when he noticed that the song is sung by a girl, Judit Bonyár. This is a track to check out absolutely: electric guitar and rhythm section back perfectly Judit’s vocals and PJ’s tin whistle and Lili’s fiddle are flawless.

The following self-penned song is sung by Barna, "Finger in the Pie". He begins playing acoustic guitar, but obviously the song is going to get the full Firkin’s treatment. It turns out to be a fast-paced song featuring an amazing electric guitar part. “Dirty Julie” is another of my faves. Firkin go really mad and become  a sort of a Celtic Toy Dolls. This song is followed by the upbeat “Nincompoop”. Fast-paced Celtic punk at its best.

As far as the covers are concerned, Firkin have followed different approaches:  one standard with different lyrics and song title; four traditional songs and one instrumental.  The first one is a re-recording of “The Foggy Dew”. The Hungarian version can be found on their third album. The song has been called “Kind and Fine” and is sung once again by former band member Pali. “Donegal Danny” and  “Molly Malone”  are lively renditions of Irish ballads. “My Love John” is a midtempo version of the traditional song  “P Stands for Paddy” . It’s sung by another girl, Nóra Fehér. The strings sextet guest on this number too. The band  moves to the Scottish territory  with
Loch Lomond”, a song that features PJ’s electronic pipes.  Finally, “Jumping Lovers” is a tune consisting of a rocking intro and the well-known “Tam Lin” reel.

The CD is available in a digipack packaging with a 12 page booklet full of band pictures. I recommend that you  buy a hard copy instead of a digital version. Grab a beer, read the lyrics and sing-a-long!

Firkin fans will not be disappointed, as “Finger in the Pie” has all the elements that have pushed Firkin to stardom. Anyway, I feel that the band should bet on their own material and include less well-known covers on the next album. There are plenty of traditional songs from the Planxty/De Dannan/Altan/Dervish discography to get a new lease of life. Or even from Christy Moore or The Wolfe Tones repertoire. The Celtic punk/rock scene needs to unveil these hidden gems and, IMHO, Firkin is the right band to do it.

REVIEW - THE RAMSHACKLE ARMY "Letters from the Road Less Travelled" (2014)

The Ramshackle Army "Letters from the Road Less Travelled" East Grand Records EGRC017
Release date: 18 February 2014
Running time: 41:13, 12 tracks

Aussie band The Ramshackle Army skyrocketing career was stopped somewhere between 2012 and 2013. After having delivered a kickass EP in 2011, they were invited to play some gigs with Dropkick Murphys in the USA , where they met the SoCal and East Coast Celtic punk intelligentsia. The next step should have been the debut album,  but a couple of years went by and the CD was postponed.

I must admit that I was a little bit concerned. Between 2011 and the end of 2013 the band could have written and played a lot of new material. Therefore,  they could have plenty of songs to choose. But, in the meanwhile, the band’s sound could have evolved in such a way that the gap between the EP and the album could be huge.

When the title of the album was revealed, I thought that the new album would be a mix of British fiddle folk punk and Irish traditional music. “Letters from the Road Less Travelled” seemed to be the addition of “Letters from the Underground” (a Levellers album) and “The Road Less Traveled” (a Danú album). Obviously, this was not the case. The Ramshackle Army’s debut album owes a lot to their North American buddies, particularly to the So-Cal bands.

The album starts with an accordion intro, whose theme is that of the second track, “Anchors Aweigh”. It's a fantastic shanty that is followed by “Coffin & Copper”, one of the standouts of the disc. Lexington Field influences are disguised with Aussie roots on this number featuring fiddle and banjo.

My fave song on the album is “Boilermakers Hands”. It’s a catchy song that will make you think that you’re listening to Radio Birdman covering The Men They Couldn’t HangThe Bells”. Excellent guitar work.

The CD is plenty of great songs and “The Road Less Travelled” is not the  exception that proves the rule. Great banjo picking on this Hoist the Colors sounding number. RSA know how to use the background vocals.

The next two tracks have also a So-Cal twist filtered by Australian music. I prefer  the mandolin driven “Broken Towns” to “Lockdown”.

Broken White Lines” is the most stunning number on the album. Fiddle, tin whistle and a festive bass are played at the beginning of this song. When one thinks that it’s an instrumental number, Gaz and Nath begin to sing. An amazing song directly linked to the  “Life Lessons and Drunken Sessions” era.

Another song that I sing regularly is “Drink it Dry”. Drums, “One-Two, One-Two-Three-Four” and here we go! Banjo and fiddle haunt you and echoes from Billy Bragg and The Pogues surround you. My second-best song.

Skin Will Burn” has an Aussie pedigree and a slight Hoist the Color flavour too. Great stuff.

The CD ends with “One Tree Hill”. It’s a brilliant faced-paced anthem with an awesome banjo and fiddle theme reminiscent of Flogging MollyTobacco Island”.

Letters from the Road Less Travelled” is a tight album, but some points could have been improved.  I feel that the fiddle should be more prominent on some parts. Apart from that, I have a doubt. “One Tree Hill” is a very good closing number, but I keep on wondering if “Drink it Dry”  would have been a better  choice.

The canvas looking artwork is a labour of love. However,  the guests are not mentioned on the credits (Wez from  pirate punk band Sforzando on accordian and Dave from Catgut Mary on tin whistle) and no lyrics to the songs have beeb included. Maybe it’s not the band’s fault (The Tosspints CD from the same label had no lyrics too), but it’s really a shame.

The Ramshackle Army have probably released the most interesting album from the first quarter of 2014. The wait was worth it!

REVIEW - BLOOD OR WHISKEY "Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil" (2014)

Blood or Whiskey "Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil" BOW records cat. no. BOW2
Release date: 14 March 2014
Running time: 34:17, 11 tracks

Blood or Whiskey are THE real Irish Celtic punk legend. I first new about them at the ad section of the old Friends of Shane fanzine and I bought their debut album in 1999 from the USA.  In fact Blood or Whiskey were established in 1994 and their first album predates both Flogging Molly and Dropkick Murphys debut albums (have a look to the Unofficial History at the bottom of the post) . The band have gone through several ups and downs (health problems,  issues with their previous label and some members passing away) . So, their discography is shorter than expected,  only a couple of EPs and 4 albums: “Blood or Whiskey”  (1996, two different versions and a must have), “No Time to Explain” (2001), “Cashed Out on Culture” (2005, another gem) and their newest release  “Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil” (2014).

Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil” showcases the band’s blend of traditional Irish and Caribbean sounds. The guys from Leixlip have previously shown their love for ska. For instance, “Rudy” from their second album or “Poxy Pub” and “Impaired Vision” from their third album. Anyway, “Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil” differs from other albums like The TrojansCeltic Ska” or The California Celts CDs. There are no ska versions of Irish pub standards. Moreover, it’s not a 100% ska album.

Dirty Aul War” , the opening number, is an upbeat ska-punk  song. It begins with some piano notes, but a brass section and the band’s trademark sound based on banjo and tin whistle joins straightway. This song was already included in their “Live and Learn” EP (2009) where the spirit of The Clash Sandinista” sessions was present.

The next track, “Montpelier Hill” is linked to the titled of The Mahones third album, “The Hellfire Club Sessions”. The lyrics are about the same topic, the events that happened at the “Hellfire Club” at Montpellier Hill. The building where the so-called debauchery took place is shown at the back cover of the album. Musically it’s very interesting. It opens with a Mexican/Western movie trumpet sound and features Will Slattery on vocals and Niall Cloak on fiddle.

Gone and Forgotten” is the first single of the album. Rancid influences via Strawberry Blondes can be heard on this catchy ska-punk number. The guests on this track are Nihil Murphy on keyboards, Damien O’Meara on sax and Mick Boyle on trumpet.

As a Basque citizen, the following song really goes straight to my heart. “Gernika” is a tribute to one of the biggest peace symbols in the world. The town was destroyed by the Luftwaffe’s bombs in 1937 during the Spanish Civil War. I guess that my aitxitxa (grandfather) and my amama (grandmother) will be happy in heaven listening to this song after having lived nearly 40 years under the fascist dictator law.

Apart from ska or ska-punk, other Caribbean rythms can be heard on “Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil”. For instance, “Seanie O’Keefe” is a reggae infused number. It’s a fast paced song, but the intro and the chorus are clearly reggae.

Generals”  is IMHO the less interesting song on the album. The beginning is slow, but at the end the band speeds and the song shifts to an Eastern fiddle led influenced beat.

Tracks no. 7 is called “Rutland” and the sax plays the main role at the song’s intro. Lyrics are more introspective and the chorus have an early U2 twist.

The band goes back to their beloved ska-punk on “Time Over Time”, another Rancid inspired number and one of my faves. Brilliant brass section!

Emigrant” is another survivor from the “Live and Learn” EP. Emigration has always been an important matter in Ireland. As Ronnie Drew used to say, “Ireland’s biggest export is people”. The first part of the song showcases the band’s classic sound, which is backed by the trumpet
later. Great chorus and kick ass strong vocals on the “No Black no Dogs no Irish” verses.

A new comeback to the band’s classic blend of tin whistle, banjo and electric instruments on “Cannibal Economy”. A rant to all those greedy bastards who call us PIGS (Portugal-Ireland-Greece-Spain).  Amazing stuff!

To finish up,  an instrumental: "Black Pits". Blood or Whiskey have always included awesome instrumentals on their albums. If only other bands did it too!

Other guests on the album are Donnchadh Grant (guitars, mandolin, backing vocals and vocals on “Time Over Time”), Leonard Walsh (accordion) and  Luke Deignan (whistle). The album has been produced and mixed by Eoin “Spud” Murphy at Big Garden Recording and co-produced by original members Chris O’Meara and Dugs Mullooly. I feel that the tin whistle should be a little bit louder in the mix, but overall the sound is good.

Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil” has been released by the band on their own BOW records label. It has been self-financed, so please DO NOT download pirate mp3 copies from the usual Russian sites. Or, if you do, give some spins to the album and once you’re sure that you love it, PLEASE buy the CD  with the eight page booklet from the band.

REVIEW - FIDDLER'S WAGE " A Needle Pointing North" (2014)

Fiddler's Wage "A Needle Pointing North" Self-released
Release date: January 18th,2014
Running time: 37:36, 9 tracks

Our Band of March 2012, Callanach, have recently released their second album. Between their debut album “Walk On Up” and the new album, a lot of things have happened.  First of all, their superb song “Irish Pubs” was voted best rock song of 2012 by Secondly, Marissa and the boys thought that the band’s name was a little hard to say and therefore they decided to change their name to Fiddler’s Wage.

The 9 track album has been delivered in a digipack with all the credits and a band pic. Lyrics to the songs have not been included. However, all of them are available at the band’s  website. Don’t expect a big change of sound, as their project is always the same: first class fiddle led Celtic rock.

The opening track, “More Than A Nation”, is a tribute to the Emerald isle which is vaguely reminiscent of Spirit of the West early albums. Interesting song.

The following number is called “One More Beer”. It’s about a soldier coming back home from war at a faraway land. This song is faster than the opening track and musically has a British fiddle folk rock flavour (Roving Crows, 3 Daft Monkeys). Ryan’s vocals have had a “megaphone” treatment and the fiddling part is as awesome as usual .

Track no. 3 is an optimistic song about kids' dreams: two little girls that wanted to fly. It’s one of my favourite songs on the album and vocals by Ryan and Marissa are perfect.

The next number is a set of tunes. “Expansion” includes “Trip to Pakistan” (Niall Kenny), "The Blacksmith’s Anvil” (Paddy Fahy) and “Milt Jackson” (Marissa Ruper). The set evolves from a quiet traditional style reel to a tune featuring guitar and a top-notch rhythm section. I love it!

One Heart Broken” is another song which goes back to early Canadian Celtic rock sound, this time the seminal band from London, Ontario, Uisce Beatha. I love the mandolin, fiddle and the vocal work by Ryan and Marissa. This number is followed by “Hole in the Bottle”, another fantastic song about the “foxy devil”. Maybe it’s a little bit long, but once again the boy/girl vocals are brilliant.

Track no. 7 is titled “The Other Side”. Probably the most Flogging Molly infused number on Callanach/Fiddler’s Wage discography. A fast paced song that both Celtic rock and Celtic punk fans will love. “I will wait for you on the other side, wait for you all along/I will wait for you on the other side, my dear”

Just a Road” is another amazing number with a great  “Wooah” chorus on which Ryan plays banjo. And finally, the big surprise. If “Irish Pubs” was voted best Celtic Rock song of 2012, I feel that “Johnny” could become the best Celtic rock song of 2014. It’s a tale about a man that has had a hard life and had lost his dear wife, but Celtic music heals his pains. If you like Firkin’s albums, you’ll enjoy this song.

The band from San Diego Lexington Field  coined the term American Fiddle Rock. Together with Delilah’s Revenge, Fiddler’s Wage are another band that can be filed under the American Fiddle Rock tag: kick ass fiddle fronted Celtic music with a North American twist. I expect that you’ll enjoy “A Needle Pointing North” as much as I have done.

This is the official video for the song "Safari" by 16 Tons with Ally.

Tuesday, March 11, 2014


In celebration of St. Patricks day, The Tosspints are offering their new track “Pirates Life” for free via stream or download. This exclusive and previously unreleased track is an original song from the Michigan based Celtic-Punk trio, and is a sneak preview of their upcoming follow up record to last year's “Have You Been Drinking?”. “It’s a really fun track, with a great little nautical story about two different guys paths into piracy.” Don Zuzula, guitarist and singer of the band said “We had such a great year in 2013, we wanted to thank our fans and friends with some free music”.

Download available through March 17!

The Tosspints' style of music has been influenced by 3 lifetimes of living through the school of hard knocks, brought to bear from war, loss, degradation, and hard drinking. A band created entirely by a family who has had to make it through life the hard way and use their experience to create songs about the more distressed side of being human.

Made up of brothers Don Zuzula (guitar, vocals), a combat veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom and younger brother and Zak Zuzula (bass, vocals), a history teacher, along with drummer John Johnson, they draw from their world experience and working class upbringing in the rust belt city of Saginaw Michigan for their poetically dark yet uptempo songs.

REVIEW - 16 TONS WITH ALLY "Safari" (2014)

16 Tons with Ally "Safari" Chaos & Anarchy CAAC-1024
Release date: 5 February 2014
Running time: 29:25, 7 tracks

Last month our colleagues from the e-zine Idioteq posted an interesting interview with Gord Taylor . Someone on Facebook  pointed out the following words from that interview: “So my advice for new bands who wanna play bagpipes in their band…don’t worry about trying to be ‘Celtic Punk Rock’. Just try to be Fucking Good!

Great minds think alike! 16 Tons with Ally released their album before that interview, but they followed the very same  approach. Tadashi Inoue (vocals, acordion, guitar),  Sei Komiyama (guitar, banjo), Go Oue (bass), Takashi Oshida (drums) and Ally (great Highland bagpipes, tin  whistle) could have tried to deliver  a fast-paced Irish infused folk punk album à la Cherry Coke$. However, they wanted to show all the different sounds  that the accordion, the banjo and the pipes are able to offer.

Safari” is an album for for open-minded music lovers, but the Celtic punk diehard fan will also find some interesting stuff. For instance, numbers such as “Piper’s Tongue”, a musical voyage from Galicia to Scotland, and “Shokuminchi no uta”, an infectious song featuring tin whistle instead of bagpipes that will make you grab a beer and sing-a-long even if you don’t speak Japanese. The opening number, “Safari”, is not too distant from bagpipes rock. However, “Rentan kikan-sha” goes to a different place, techno-pipes  in the Hamish McDoodle & The Kicking Keltic Kaos Krew vein. Neverthless, IMHO, the true gem on the mini-album is the second song, “Kujaku cho”, an accordion led Japanese pop number with a Serge Gainsbourg twist.

16 Tons with Ally "Safari" is not intended for the fans who love the Japanese rustic/Poguesish  scene, but it’s an awesome collection of songs for those who are looking for surprises and forget about the established rules of the genre.

Track listing:

01 - Safari
02 - Kujaku cho (Peacock Butterfly)
03 - Piper's Tongue
04 - Shokuminchi no uta (Song of the Colonial)
05 - Aguriasu
06 - Rentan kikan-sha - Dub Version GORIKI Mix (Briquettes Locomotive)

REVIEW - DRINK HUNTERS "Lurking Behind the Woods" (2014)

Drink Hunters "Lurking Behind the Woods" Maldito Digital
Release date: 10 March 2014
Running time: 38:36, 14 tracks + 1 hidden track

What’s the meaning of SoCal Celtic punk? Look it up in the “Colleens” English Dictionary:

1) Celtic punk played by SoCal bands such as Flogging Molly, The Mighty Regis, Brick Top Blaggers, Hoist the Colors, etc.
2) A sub-genre of Celtic punk mixing SoCal punk sound with Celtic elements. Drink Hunters are the main band playing this sub-genre.

After a successful fundraising at Verkami, the Catalonian band Drink Hunters has released the follow-up to their critically acclaimed debut album “With My Crew”. The family is bigger now with the addition of Isra (tin whistle). Yes, the band’s sound has evolved too, but don’t panic: they are still the kings of SoCal Celtic punk. Drink Hunters have worked really hard on the traditional instruments (button accordion, fiddle and tin whistle) and the final result is very interesting. There are even some slightly medieval folk arrangements on  “Speciecism” and a passage from Wolfe TonesNewgrange” can be heard on “Big Fellah”. Besides, there are more lyrics about Celtic traditions/history, for instance the lyrics to “Breogan’s Descendents” and “Big Fella”. One again Victor Mañas a.k.a. Vic Weasel (Blowfuse, Violets) has played banjo on one of the tracks.

The best songs on the album would be “Second Chance”, an amazing number that goes in a different musical direction; “The Hunter Song”, a track about a sort of a drunken modern Robin Hood, probably the catchiest number on the CD; and “Paul’s House”, a fast-paced song based on a true story (a party at Pau’s home that went mad). Together with those songs, I’d also pick up the following ones: “Speak More Than a Fucking Politician” a rant against new converted HC fans, “Same Story”, another number to sing-along,  and “Stupid Trends”.

Drink Hunters are victims of geography. If they were Americans or British, they would be selling worldwide a huge amount of CD copies.  Fortunately, “Lurking Behind the Woods” is the album that may change this and give a boost to their career.

The Band of March 2014 hail from Muggiò, near Milan (Italy): The Clan. They have just released a demo. All the songs are standards, but I'm looking forward to listening some original stuff from this band.

"The Clan - Irish rock band from Milan formed in September 2013 from musicians coming from different musical projects but with the same deep love for Ireland and its unique sound.

They are clearly influenced by the major exponents of this genre, as Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly, The Rumjacks, The Pogues and The Dubliners. They play covers, reinterpreted traditional Irish song and unreleased tracks.

They are now working on their first album


The Clan  are:

- Chiara - tin whistle and bagpipes. She played the harp with celtic metal band Folk Stone all around Italy and Europe.
She also founded an irish rock band sharing the stage with Modena City Ramblers
- Laura Bran - Irish fiddle. She has played fiddle since she was young from classical music to celtic metal.She used to play in a metal band opening for well known bands as Skyclad, Exploited and Eluveitie. Now she's focusing in Irish music
- Angel Rock - vocals and guitar. Leader and songwriter of pop rock band Oxidiana. Their first album was released on January 2012. He was frontman of hard rock band Mothell and he plays double bass in the rockabilly band I Rockabelli. He's also working on a solo album with vocals and ukulele
- Stefano "Cione" Becce - bass.  He released his first album "Rusted Songs and Sing Alongs"
with Trashout Grease. He also played in various tribute band like Bon Jovi tribute band (Vintage Diesel) and Rock star movie tribute (Blood Pollution)
- Pietro Della Sala - drums. He's a very multifaceted musician. In addition to drums he plays saxophone and he's also a singer. He played with Chiara in another irish rock band "
