Norwegian Celtic-punk legends Greenland Whalefishers have a new album, The Thirsty Cave, out on September 21st (thats tomorrow). The album is out on green vinyl as well as the other less trendy formats. Review to follow shortly.
Happy to report that after an 8 year wait we will have new music from Tulsa based trad punk band Larkin. The album will be out later this summer on vinyl (and I assume CD too). A review and hopefully an interview with Larkin soon to follow.
Our long on-going (5 years in the making) tribute to Celtic-rock originators Horslips is moving forward. All tracks are in and mastering is about to take place in Montreal under the expert supervision of Mr. Finny McConnell of The Mahones.
The final track list is:
01 – Langers Ball / Sword of Light
02 – Bill Grogan’s Goat / Dearg Doom
03 – The Mahones / Shamrock Shore
04 – Jake Burns (Stiff Little Fingers) / Warm Sweet Breath
05 – Mark Cunningham / My Lagan Love
06 – The Gobshites with Richie Ramone / The Man Who Built America
07 – The Indulgers / Trouble
08 – Larkin Brigade / NY Wakes
09 – Radiators From Space / Lady wrestler
10 – Dun Ringles / Speed the Plough
11 – The Teraways / Come Back Beatles

The Mighty Regis? Lost of activity between 2007 and 2012 and nothing since? Anyone know if the band is still active. A might band.
