The Rumjacks: Sober and Godless

Sober and Godless is the long overdue follow up to The Rumjacks classic debut, Gangs of New Holland. We’re happy to report that Sober and Godless is a phenomenal follow up. The Rumjacks stick to their Celtic-punk roots though I would say rock hard and faster then on the debut. Nice to hear the reggae influence working it’s way into back into the band’s sound (long time fans will of course be familiar with the reggae groove on their two EPs).

Frankie McLaughlin is one hell of a great song writer and lyricist and the band tight, very tight. If you haven’t heard the the Rumjack think a 21st century Clash Meets Flogging Molly (then again if you haven’t heard the Rumjacks what are you even doing on this site? Feck-off.) If you loved Gangs of New Holland you will love Sober and Godless. Outstanding.

You’ve a penny, I’ve a pound, let’s get drunk & fuck around,
We’ll barricade the door against the world,
I can’t take another night watchin’ grown men fight,
To music made for teenage girls.

Kilts, Celts and Croatians – the strange global rise of Celtic Punk

Last summer, I was invited down to NYC to meet Jim Lockhart and Barry Devlin of Horslips fame. The boys were over making a documentary for Irish TV based on the travels of Mickey McGowan, whose 19th century autobiography Mór an tSaoil (“The Big Wheel of Life”) documents the hardships of Irish immigrants in the USA and Mickey’s travels from NYC, to the steel mills of Pennsylvania to the Klondike gold rush. Mór an tSaoil was a major inspiration to Horslips on the albums Aliens and The Man that Built America (ok, can anyone say Cornelius Larkin?)

Both Jim and Barry were fascinated to hear about the Celtic punk scene in the US and the ever expanding global scene and one thing lead to another and on St. Patrick’s day, Jim broadcasted a short documentary on Irish national radio on Celtic punk, interviewing yours truly.

You can listen to the full documentary here:

http://shitenonions.com/ckc.mp3

bands featured include The Rumjacks, Belfast, Greenland Whalefishers, Mr Irish Bastards, Black 47 and many, many more.

BTW, I’m the one being interviewed with the sexy voice and the face for radio.
