The best of 2014

Quote

Running a little late with the list but whatever, great music doesn’t go stale. So without further adieu.

The top five:

#1 The Mahones: The Hunger & The Fight (Part 1)

the-mahones-the-hunger-the-fight

Twenty five years on and more tour miles driven then the rest of the entire Celtic-punk scene combined, The Mahones on The Hunger & The Fight still have the enthusiasm of a band in the studio for the first time (but thankfully the 25 years and many albums under their belt studio experience).

#2 Whiskey of the Damned: Monsters are Real whiskey of the damned  

I’ll go out on a limb and say McCarthy has the finest voice in Celtic-punk (and that includes Dave King), maybe Van the Moan threw in a few vocal lessons to boot. Of course a good voice won’t do it alone, the band are tight as f#*k, loud and fast and the songs first class and while still fast and trashy

#3 Blood or Whiskey: Tell The Truth And Shame The Devil bow

Pissed and angry but still a party. Its great to have’em back.

#3 Kilkenny Knights: Brady’s Pub Tales download

Honestly not a bad song over the entire almost hour of music and more then a few that could wake the dead and induce them into jig.

#5 (joint) Black 47: Last Call

#5 (joint) Black 47: Rise Up – The Political Songs B4716CD_lg                   Black 47 Last Call

Black 47 hung up their green suede shoes in November, 2014 after 25 years of hard jigging and gigging. Two albums were released in 2014; Last Call, their final original album, full of fresh and originals ideas and, Rise Up – The Political Songs, a collection of, well, political songs as a reminder of how good this band was.

The Biblecode Sundays: Live Near Abbey Road (Park Royal)

London’s BibleCodeSundays have been busy bhoys as of recent with late last years new studio album, New Hazardous Design and now The BibleCode Sundays – live near Abbey Road (Park Royal). As a band that play the Irish circuit in London they have always included covers in their set and this album is a response to requests to record and release those covers. As you see from the track listing the covers are mainstream but off beat for an Irish band and each track is given the BibleCode’s fiddle and accordion twist.

Highlights include Thin Lizzy’s Dancing in the Moonlight (great guitar and a funky bass as it should be), Step Step Beyond, the Madness classic given the Ceili treatment and a stunning version of Time After Time (and honestly this was so stuck in my brain and I couldn’t remember who did that original that I needed to google it – Cindy friggn’ Lauper – a great song/version all the same).

There are 13 covers in all and include:

Babe O”Reilly (The Who)
Fisherman’s Blues (The Waterboys)
Galway Girl (Steve Earle)
Folsom Prison Blues (Johnny Clash)
Town Called Malice (The Jam)
Babylon
Live Forever
Pat’s Reels
My Girl
Waggon Wheel
