ALBUM REVIEW BY CELTIC-FOLK-PUNK BLOG-ZINE:
Six long years. âDrunk Rockâ was released in 2005 and âAuld St. Patrickâ in 2011. I must admit that the wait has been too long. O.K., back in 2005 The Bloody Irish Boys were a one-man band and a couple of songs were said to be rip-offs. But the album was f*cking good.
The Bloody Irish Boys have come back in a moment in which a lot of interesting bands are fighting for the Paddypunk realm. The question is: have The Bloody Irish Boys been âevictedâ? Based on the 13 tracks from âAuld St. Patrickâ, they have taken the place they deserved.
Their first album was a big surprise, since Shayne was able to find a new sound. The songs were led by a different fiddle blending punk, bluegrass and metal influences. During these 6 years Shayne has found the right fellows and together they have been able to develop the sound of their debut album. Five musicians plus two part-time members and one guest have recorded âAuld St. Patrickâ. As a result the influences are now bigger. For instance, metal is more present and the guitar work is top-notch, particularly in the first half of the album.
If I had to find something that is not perfect, the use of the keyboards is the only thing that, IMHO, should have been avoided in a couple of songs (âThe Leprechaunâ and âI Just Want to Liveâ) The keyboards fit perfectly in tracks 5 âAn Ode to Columbusâ and 13 âThe Parting Glassâ. However, I have the feeling that they were listening to the Ramones âAnimal Boyâ album when they arranged tracks 11 and 12. Anyway, a minor defect in a great album.
âBack Where We Belongâ, the opener, is an excellent song, not the typical Celtic punk song. The beginning is quite calm, but finally the song turns into a fast-paced song. Then, âDrinkâer Up Boysâ and âDirty Little Townâ show the evolution of the band, in which the metal influences are more obvious.
âGoing Back to Irelandâ is a good as the best moments of their debut album.
âAn Ode to Columbusâ is basically the tune âTabhair Dom Do Lamhâ (âGive Me Your Handâ) with self-penned lyrics dedicated to their hometown. The tune is said to have been written by the Irish harpist Ruairí 'Dall' Ó Catháin and till now the only band that had put lyrics to that tune were The Wolfe Tones. The BIB version, with new lyrics, sounds great.
âEileen Ogâ is another Irish song that is performed with metal influences. The song rivals with the Hungarian band Firkinâs rendition.
âAuld St. Patrickâ is the Celtic punk number from the album. Listen to that fiddle and that accordion!
âDrunk to Drownâ starts slowly, first an acoustic guitar and later the fiddle joins. More folk than punk, but one of the best moments of the album.
Track no. 9 is called âThe Pirate Songâ: raucous vocals and fast fiddling.
The next song is âCatch Me If I Fallâ. Shayne decided to phone his mate Gary Miller and asked the songwriter from the North East of England to record the vocals. Shayne, youâre my man! A perfect decision. As a Whisky Priests fan, this song is a huge surprise. I have always thought that the North American fans were too focused on The Pogues and that they should pay more attention to The Whisky Priests. I expect that now some of them will be interested in The Whisky Priests and will purchase their old albums.
I enjoy âThe Leprechaunâ but, as I have previously said, I feel that the keyboards donât improve the song. The following song, âI Just Want to Liveâ is a sort of a psychobilly song. It features more keyboards that I find too 80âs. Sorry guys!
On the other hand, the last song of the album is the best âParting Glassâ rendition that I have heard. The Mighty Regis failed to do it and The Bloody Irish Boys have succeeded. Ah, and the keyboards works well in this song.
So, purchase âAuld St. Patrickâ, listen to it and then send this e-mail to the band:
âDear Bloody Irish Boys,
You are kindly requested to release your third album next year. We have enjoyed both âDrunk Rockâ and âAuld St. Patrickâ and we need more.
Celtic punk fans from all over the worldâ
