The Mahones – The Very Best: 25 Years of Irish Punk

Mahones best25 Years of Irish Punk celebrates, well,  25 Years of Irish Punk from our favorite Canadian hooligans, The Mahones.  Whats cool about 25 years is its not just a collection of loved Mahones classics remastered but actually re-recorded by the current line up (including Mr. Scruffy Wallace). The whole album has a great consistency and a live in the studio feel – except Wild Rover which is live-live. 25 years also includes great covers of The Undertones (Teenage Kicks) , Stiff Little Fingers (Alternative Ulster) and Rancid (Last One to Die). Available online and in stores internationally via The Whiskey Devil Collective (Canada), eOne (Canada), Sailor’s Grave Records (USA) and Wolverine Records (Germany).

Scruffy Wallace – 10 Questions

12715735_210365789316728_7598498975282248239_n

Scruffy, lots of people are very excited to hear you have become a Mahone. How did joining The Mahones come about?

I have been long time friends with Finny and Dom…they’re like family to me. Katie is like a little sister and the rest of the fellas have always been fun to hang around. I have played off and on with them and toured many times with them and it’s always been a great time.

What attracted you to join the Mahones, you go back a long time with them right?

I have known Finny and crew for over 20 years…we go way back. They’re great friends and I consider them family.

How will the sound of the Mahones change with you aboard?

I don’t think much about the signature sound of the Mahones will change much…I think the only change is that you may here some Bagpipes here and there. I will share whistle duties and some backup vocals.

Are you moving back to Canada?

I will always have a home in Canada, but I’m staying in Boston. I love this city and am quite content here.

How are relations with Dropkick Murphys?

I wish them all the best.

What are the Mahones upcoming plans to record and tour?

We are working out lots of dates and are excited to get to work. I will be in the studio for a few days coming up next week to do some preliminary work and you can expect to hear some great new music!

Bruins or Canadians?

Without hesitation…Boston Bruins.

What have you been up for the since you left DKM?

I have been working with a new charity called 22kill, bringing awareness to veteran suicide. Staying busy with arranging fund raisers and helping in my community as much as I can. I went to school to become an EMT and love helping people in need. Being a father to 2 boys keeps me pretty busy and I squeeze in as much playing with other bands as I can.

Favorite Mahones song?

Hmmmmm….I’ve always been partial to ‘Back Home’….has a lot of sentimental meaning to me. Of course the usual staples….Drunken Lazy Bastard, Is This Bar Open ‘Til Tomorrow and a night of debauchery that Finny and I shared in Hamburg, Germany a few years ago called ‘The Pint Of No Return’…haha. It was a hell of a night chasing the ghost of Brendan Behan….

Irish Whiskey or Scotch?

Scotch…I usually drink Lagavulin 16 or any Islay whisky….
