Blaggards – Standards at the Shite’n’Onions store

Blaggards: Standards – $15

Original Shite’n’Onions Review: Don’t know too much about The Blaggards except they are from Houston, Texas and are fronted by Irish Man, Patrick Devlin. Standards is a collection of well, standards, you know, the stuff made famous by The Clancy Brothers, The Dubliners, Johnny Cash (an honorary Irish man) – who’s “Folsom Prison Blues” becomes “Fields of Athenry” as “Prison Love Songs” – and Elvis (I kid you not, “Suspicious Minds” is given the Celtic kick up the ass). The music is high-energy Celtic rock that will be on heavy rotation at my next Paddy’s day party (especially “Suspicious Minds”)
