Under the influence of old school punk rock and traditional Celtic tunes, the McGillicuddys sound like a psycho ceilidh amped up with power chords: drums, bass and electric guitar provide a thumping background for the lashings of mandolin, tin whistle and accordion that complete the glorious din. This heady mixture is topped off with the gritty real-life lyrics, and catchy boot-stomping songs that make up the full-bodied McGillicuddys experience: psycho ceilidh punk! From Victoria BC, on the west coast of Canada, the McGillicuddys are a stiff mix of the Pogues and the Clash, with shots of Social Distortion and the Dubliners thrown in for good measure, creating a sound fans of groups like Flogging Molly, the Mahones and Dropkick Murphys will happily drink to.

The McGillicuddys new full length CD, aptly entitled âSin Lane,â was released in March 2011. This 12 (actually, 13 if youâre counting) track CD features original songs written and inspired by the McGillicuddysâ 12 years of playing music and touring together, and offers a glimpse into the misadventures, sin and debauchery traversed along the way. Together with McGillicuddysâ original compositions, âSin Laneâ also includes a âMcGillifiedâ punk rock interpretation of the traditional tune The Banks of the Roses, and covers of Richard Thompsonâs 1952 Vincent Black Lightning, and The Nipsâ Gabrielle.

⢠âThis is a party disc, with some of the best Celtic punk-edged rock I've heard in a very long time. It's definitely worth whirling on the CD player a few thousand times!â
⢠âThe black-clad five piece, with accordion, guitar, bass, drums, male and female vocals, and whistle transported the crowd to a mythical smoky pub with brawling songs of drink, hard livin' and hard lovin.'â
⢠âA Hard Wayâ is an amazing tune; it captures everything this band can do well, brilliant quick guitar, beautiful accordion, gang vocals, and very touching, catchy lyrics.â
⢠âAnother super sized serving of Irish folk punk that shows it can easily be St. Paddy's Day every day, especially if you like them best when they end in a drunken brawl. High octane and out of control, this is music to get wild to and you don't have to be Irish.â
⢠âComplete with tin whistles and infectious rhythms these players have the dynamics to pack dance floors wherever they play. The band appeals to the alternative dance crowd with their edgy arrangements and punk sensibilities but remains solid with those that love roots music from Ireland and Scotland.â
⢠âThe punk rock guitar, bass and drums make a great noise, but they still leave lots of room for the traditional instruments to shine through. Much of the music kinda brings to mind the Pogues plus power chords.â

The McGillicuddys bring a high-energy Celtic punk rock ânâ roll party to packed dance floors wherever they play. Their edgy arrangements and punk rock sensibilities appeal equally to both the alternative crowd, and to those who love traditional Celtic music.
