REVIEW - THE BEER BARONS EP (2012)



THE BEER BARONS EP
Release date: January 2012
Running time: 20:27, 6 tracks



Naming a band can be a tricky biz. Some names might imply that a band is simply a clichéd “drinking song” bar band, á la “Drinkhunters,” “Boozehounds” or “The Barflyers,” (okay, technically speaking, that last one is the name of my old street hockey team, but the principle could still be applied!)

In any case, one COULD infer from the name “The Beer Barons” that this was the case. I certainly would. However, in doing so, I might well have missed out on something pretty good.

The Beer Barons, out of Ottawa, Canada, are a young six-piece outfit, wielding guitar, bass, harmonica, tin whistle, banjo, drums and mandolin on this, their self-titled, six-track E.P. to create sounds immediately engaging, and vaguely familiar. Listening to each track found me both enjoying the songs as well as trying to pinpoint where I had heard certain elements before.

Right out of the gate, I had a hard time trying to decide who vocalist Davey Lawless reminded me of the most. At times, his singing begs comparisons to those of The Dreadnoughts, other times, The Dolomites. Mostly, however, his voice calls to mind the frenetic, frenzied fronting of certain Japanese “Rustic Stomp” bands, such as Mt. Paiot’s, The Clovers or The Cherry Coke$, minus the accent, of course. (I would just like to point out that this is some pretty accomplished company to share.)

Now, it may well be that I reached those comparisons due to the energy and pacing of the songs, executed by a very well-balanced collection of sounds. By “well-balanced,” I mean that all of the instruments heard on this E.P. seem to be ‘in concert,’ for lack of a better term, finding the more traditional instruments: the accordion, the mandolin, the banjo, sharing the spot with their more contemporary counterparts, and not relegated to supporting roles. Big kudos to The Beer Barons for this often overlooked point.

Possessing a strong folk-y sound, (albeit one cranked up on sugar and caffeine,) The Beer Barons are distinctly in the “Celtic-Punk” realm, and somewhere closer to the Flogging Molly end of the scale, but with what seems like a bit more of an acoustic feel.

Other highlights that I discovered on this E.P. include some great tongue-in-cheek lyrics, incredibly catchy melodies, and some fantastic drumming. (Yes! Drumming. Sadly, drumming is too often taken for granted in this genre, with just keeping a beat being the job description. Drummer “Tom Beercan” shows that he knows how to make himself known with inventive beats and awesome fills. Raise that bar!)

So, in the end, I guess the only thing that I don’t really care for with this band is the name. But, I will definitely be keeping an ear out for it, and look forward to further releases, (whether under this name or not!)

REVIEW - THE PORTERS "Rum, Bum and Violina" Cargo Records


THE PORTERS "Rum, Bum and Violina" Cargo Records
Release date: 27 January 2012
Running time: 48:25, 13 tracks


Rum, Bum and Violina” is the third album released by the German band The Porters in 10 years. Their previous albums were recorded in 2001 (“A Tribute to Arthur Guinness") and 2006 (“Anywhere But Home”). So, I’m not wrong when I say that it was a long awaited album.

In the last five years some changes have occurred at The Porters headquarters. First of all, the band has moved from Knock Out Records to Cargo Records. This is a minor change, since Cargo Records distributed the KOR albums. The most important thing is the line-up changes. Three out of five members are new. Only Volker Grüner (vocals, guitars, mandolin, banjo) and Gehrke (drums, percussion) remain.

Should the fans be worried? Not at all. “Rum, Bum and Violina” is the logical next step. The Porters shifted from a Celtic punk covers band to an impressive folk punk outfit when they released their master piece “Anywhere But Home”. At that moment it was clear that the band was shifting from the Celtic end to the American end. And “Rum, Bum and Violina” is more American Folk and less Celtic than their previous effort. So, it is not a big surprise.

Yes, it’s true that regarding the instrumentation there is more fiddle and the accordion place has been taken by the keyboards (piano and organ). However, I feel that the result is really good. Besides, the guests list includes Pierre Lavendel (Jamie Clarke’s Perfect) on banjo and Paul McKenzie (Real McKenzies) on vocals, backing vocals and harp. Maybe I’m wrong, but I find a 80’s feeling all along the album. The title track “Rum, Bum and Violina” seems to be a tribute to both The Pogues and Mano Negra, there are some echoes to Bruce Springsteen, some organ à la Dire Straits and I  recall  The ClashThe Sound of the Sinners” when I listen to the gospel on “Homeward Bound

But you want to know which songs I like, don’t you? The opening track “Canción de la Muerte” (Ennio Morricone western soundtracks via The Pogues), “Harbour Pearls” (a song with a country sound because of the banjo, fiddle, harp  and especially the great piano arrangements) “Son of this Town” (Flogging Molly meets The Men They Couldn’t Hang), “Nameless Grave” (the best track on the album IMHO) and “Homeward Bound”. Regarding the covers, my fave is the Queen '39.

As a whole, the album is an excellent addition to The Porters catalogue. Anyway, I have the feeling that I miss something, maybe a couple of numbers like “Too Many Pints of Guinness” and “Bantry Bay Boozers” with different vocalists instead of the new "Sam Hall" cover and the "Jesse James" extended version, to get a better balance. But, when the quality is so high, maybe it’s useless to discuss about this kind of small details. Come on, buy The PortersRum, Bum and Violina”!


Tracklist:

01. Canción de la muerte 1:54    
02. Harbour Pearls 3:52    
03. Love Train 3:42

REVIEW - FINNEGAN'S HELL - "Finnegan's Hell" EP Pavement Productions (2011)

Finnegan's Hell - "Finegan's Hell" EP Pavement Productions (2011)
Release date: 2011
Running time: 14:05, 5 tracks


Paddy’s Irish Clan was a Swedish band that was established in 1999. They played mainly Irish ballads and rebel songs and had an Internet “hit” with their song “Fuck the British Army”. They released   four albums and toured Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Finally, after having played at the Ballyshannon Folk Festival in Ireland, they thought that it was high time for a change of direction. And that’s how Finnegan’s Hell was born.

Needless to say that Finnegan’s Hell also had a great Internet hit last year when the band released the official video for the track “The Molly Maguires”. Their long awaited debut EP includes that song,  another two traditional standards and a couple of self-penned songs.

I find that the best songs on the EP are “Hot Asphalt” and “Jar of Porter” (By the way, a new version of this song with different lyrics and a new tittle is also available as a video). The last song is very interesting too, with some Appalachian influences on the fiddling and banjo playing.

Pabs McNasty  (lead vocals and guitar), Slick Mick (banjo, harmonica, accordion, tin whistle and backing vocals), San Stacy  (bass and backing vocals), Carl Bushmill (fiddle) and Ace o'Reilly (drums & percussion) have been able to blend their knowledge of the Irish ballads and their live experience at pubs and big festivals with the rocking tradition of Swedish bands such as The Nomads or The Hellacopters. A top-notch EP that should be on your CD collection. Grab it as soon as possible.

I feel that a new wave of Scandinavian Celtic punk bands is here to conquer the world. SIR REG  and Greenland Whalefishers are already the kings of the Celtic punk realm. But “new” bands like Finnegan’s Hell and Rovers Ahead are pushing on the same direction too.


Tracklist:

01 - The Molly Maguires 2:22
02 - Hot Asphalt 3:49
03 - Jar of Porter 2:23
04 - McAlpine's Fusiliers 2:41
05 - A Pint of Plain 2:40

ROIO - WEDDINGS PARTIES ANYTHING "Live at the Mean Fiddler" (1992)




This is a great ROIO, apparently a soundboard recording. I only  got a couple of albums released by Weddings Parties Anything, the ones that were released in the UK by Cooking Vinyl: "Roaring Days" and "Difficult Loves". A lot of tracks from those albums are featured on this recording, including "Telephone in Her Car" (The Clash influence is obvious) and "Rambling Girl", my faves

The following info comes from Wikipedia. Just one remark: IMHO, "The Australian Pogues" were Roaring Jack, Weddings, Parties Anything were The Australian The Men They Couldn't Hang". A cover of "Industrial Town" can be found at TMTCH "The Domino Club" album.

"Weddings Parties Anything were an Australian folk rock band formed in 1984 in Melbourne and continuing until 1998. Their name came from The Clash song ("Revolution Rock") and musicologist Billy Pinnell described their first album as the best Australian rock debut since Skyhooks' Living in the '70s

Formation and early years

Mick Thomas grew up in Geelong, Victoria, Australia, where he played in bush bands in his youth. In 1981 (at age 21) he moved to Melbourne and after a couple of years in Melbourne's pub rock scene with bands like Where's Wolfgang and Trial, Thomas formed the first version of Weddings, Parties, Anything in late 1984.

Thomas' idea behind Weddings Parties Anything was to combine that punk rock inspiration with his original love for the honest storytelling in folk music. The band was essentially based on a song he'd written, ""Away, Away"". In early 1985 the group's original piano accordion player Wendy Joseph was replaced by Mark Wallace. Michael Thomas had placed an ad looking for an accordion player, but didn't receive any responses. He then looked through the phone book for music schools and lists of their past students. After four or five schools he came up with Mark "Wally" Wallace, who'd been playing in his dad's Scottish Club band. Wallace was also listening to rock bands such as The Violent Femmes and like Thomas he was keen to put the accordion into a modern context.

Another inclusion to the line-up was guitarist Dave Steel (Strange Tenants and Fire Down Below).

With original drummer David Adams, it was this four piece Weddings Parties Anything which released a four track self-titled EP on the group's own Suffering Tram label. By the time they released their version of Tex Morton's 'Sgt.Small' as a single, the line-up comprised Michael Thomas, Mark Wallace, Dave Steel, bassist Janine Hall (formerly of the band The Saints) and drummer Marcus Schintler returning to work with Mick, after the two met at an audition as the rhythm section for Melbourne band Little Murders two years earlier. 'Sgt.Small' was written in the 1930s about the Queensland Railway Police, and was banned soon after its release in Australia.

First albums and success

In 1987 Weddings Parties Anything released its first album, Scorn of the Women. They recorded it as another independent release, but on the strength of the group's ever growing live following, the group ended up being offered a recording contract and the album was released by Warners. Janine Hall left the band following the release of the album, and was replaced by Peter Lawler, adding a mandolin to the band's repertoire. It was that line-up that produced 1988's Roaring Days. 1988 also saw Weddings Parties Anything winning its first ARIA award for 'Best New Talent', which was followed by another ARIA in 1989 for 'Best Indigenous Release' (Roaring Days). Dave Steel left the band following a tour of North America, citing exhaustion as the chief reason. He also noted in several interviews, at the time of his departure (1988), that he was feeling frustrated not getting a lot of his material on the Weddings Parties Anything albums. He released his debut solo album, through WEA in 1989. He was replaced by Richard Burgman (The Sunnyboys) for the band's 1989 release, The Big Don't Argue, and accompanying tours. In 1989 the band won a third ARIA for Best Indigenous Release (The Big Don't Argue), the second such award with the nomination causing the band to boycott the awards for the second year running. In 1990 Weddings Parties Anything parted company with Warner.

The band spent a great deal of time touring over the next three years, and managed to release only one EP in 1990, titled The Weddings Play Sports (and Falcons), featuring cover versions of the bands The Sports, and Jo Jo Zep & The Falcons. The band resurfaced, in 1992, with the release of Difficult Loves and yet another guitarist, Paul Thomas (Huxton Creepers), replacing the departing Richard Burgman. It was only when the album was finished that at a new distribution deal was signed, with RooArt. The single "Father's Day" reached number 42 on the ARIA charts and was nominated for Single of the Year as well as winning Song of the Year at the 1993 ARIA awards). This line-up (Michael Thomas, Paul Thomas, Mark Wallace, Marcus Schintler, and Peter Lawler) remained intact for another two years, producing another album, King Tide in 1993. Following the world tour to promote that release, Marcus Schintler left the band for family reasons (later joining Sydney surf band The Wetsuits with Jon Schofield, Clyde Bramley, Stephen "Bones" Martin and Katrina Amiss), with Peter Lawler leaving a year later to pursue a solo career (later to work with Jimmy Barnes and Tim Rogers among others).

Reformation in 1996 with new lineup

Thomas reformed the band, and by 1996, the new Weddings Parties Anything lineup was ready for its first release, the independently produced Donkey Serenade. The band now included Jen Anderson (violins, mandolin)(formerly of the band, The Black Sorrows), Michael Barclay (drums), Stephen O'Prey (bass) (formerly of The Badloves), as well as Michael Thomas, Paul Thomas and Mark Wallace. The music style shifted somewhat from folk to a more alternative country sound. The band decided at this time to concentrate on the Australian market, and did less touring outside of their native Australia.

The band finished 1997 with a new release, Riveresque on a new label (Mushroom/Sony), and by 1998, the band decided to take a break and work on several solo projects, including Michael Thomas's musical Over In The West.

Weddings Parties Anything initially gained a reputation as a hot new band through their constant touring in their early days, however they never really became a commercial success. They did however, form a fanatical supporter base, known as the "Wedheads" that continued to sustain the band for years.

Upon the conclusion of the band several members continued on to other projects, with Mick Thomas embarking on a solo career and eventually settled with a new band 'The Sure Thing', which went through many different lineups. He also established Croxton Records with friend Nick Corr. Thomas has also written or co-written plays Over in the West and The Tank and is an accomplished music producer and engineer.

Jen Anderson has composed live music for the black and white silent movie Pandora's Box and to accompany The Sentimental Bloke for the Melbourne International Film Festival. Anderson has toured with Tiddas, Paul Kelly and Archie Roach, and she has also composed the soundtracks for Clara Law's film The Goddess of 1967 and the TV mini-series Simone de Beauvoir's Babies. She has performed on albums for Dave Graney, Hunters and Collectors, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, and has produced recordings by Ruby Hunter and the Waifs.

Further reformations

Weddings Parties Anything reformed for the Community Cup Football match on July 2005 and also performed at the Corner Hotel in Melbourne as a warm-up show two nights prior. The band reformed again later the next year for a one off performance at the Queenscliff Music Festival in November 2006.

In January 2008, Weddings Parties Anything announced the March/April dates for the bands Ten Year Reunion Tour 2008, including an international performance at the Astoria (formally The Mean Fiddler) in London on April 25 (ANZAC Day). They sold out four consecutive shows at Melbourne venue The Corner Hotel, adding a 5th to surpass the record previously held by the Hilltop Hoods from 2004.

Live performances

Renowned for their energetic live shows, Weddings Parties Anything had a handful of live songs that were nearly always guaranteed to push the mosh pit into a frenzy, particularly "A Tale They Won't Believe", the story of Alexander Pearce, a cannibal in the convict days of Tasmania.  Fans would traditionally have their coins ready to throw at the band as they sang the chorus of "Ticket in Tatts", while shielding their eyes. This was in reference to the lyrics concerning being "ten cents short of a dollar".

Also known for the especially legendary Christmas shows which grew from one night on Christmas Eve to a full week of live shows at the Central Club Hotel in Richmond. The 1998 show was recorded and released as a double live album, They Were Better Live, which was nominated for an ARIA award in 1999 for 'Best Blues & Roots Album'). The last performance was also the basis of a play, A Party in Fitzroy, by Victorian playwright Ross Mueller.

Musical style

Musically, Weddings Parties Anything were a combination of Australian indie and garage rock, sixties folk, punk and (later) country and are usually described as being a ‘folk rock’ band. The audience for the band was close to a mainstream rock crowd, their folk credentials were further evidenced by Celtic influences and an affinity for traditional Australian songs ("Streets of Forbes", "Sergeant Small"), plus original songs by Thomas which drew upon a similar repository of colonial folklore ("A Tale They Won’t Believe"). Canadian commentator Jeremy Mouat, concluded that their "music is largely concerned with the connections between past and present, whether it be the bond of memory or an identification with tradition". They led what later became known as the alt-country scene in Melbourne. The band were often compared to The Pogues, though the two bands were actually contemporaries rather than one following the other; the two bands toured Australia together in the early '90s.

REVIEW - RUSTY NAIL "Boozers, Bastards and Bards" Self-released (2011)

Rusty Nail "Boozers, Bastards and Bards" Self-released
Release date: November 2011
Running time: 64:59, 14 tracks



"Boozers, Bastards and Bards”. A great title for Rusty Nail’s second album. Yes, the band released in 2007 a CD titled “Ounce and a Half of Whiskey”. But, given that their first CD was recorded by an acoustic band and Rusty Nail was intended to be an electric band, we can consider “Boozers, Bastards and Bards” as their “debut” album.

And “Boozers, Bastards and Bards”  is really a labour of love: an excellent packaging (a digipack with a fantastic artwork, black and white pics of the whole band and bands members and all the credits and liners notes), fourteen tracks (only 3 standards!!!!) and 65 minutes of Celtic rock that have been recorded, mixed and mastered by  multi-instrumentalist Chad Ross (dulcimer, guitar, banjo, accordion, organ, electric guitar and slide guitar). As it has been previously said, most of the tracks have been written by the band members: Alvan Caby (guitar, mandolin, electric guitar and vocals) and Chris Otto (tin whistle and American native flute)

It’s not easy to pick up the best tracks. All the material is strong, but given that we have to choose some tracks, here we go:

Yadier Molina” is an attractive song featuring fiddle and great male and female vocals.

Black Velvet Band” is the most interesting cover. A rocking version with great mandolin and electric guitar work that also features accordion.

Track no. 7, “Paper Kisses” is another strong number. The song features accordion, mandolin and fiddle. The female choir at the end of the song is amazing.

Brave New World”shows the band’s hard rock end. This side of the band can also be heard at the next song, “Trainyard Pubs”. At the beginning, the song is calm but gradually it evolves into a rocking song with excellent electric guitar, fiddle and flute.

Finally, “Shamrock Pub”. A slow and quiet song, but quite enjoyable. Imagine The TossersTeehan’s” at a slower pace blended with “To Welcome Paddy Home”. Mandolin, fiddle, guitar and female vocals (once again guest Amy Caby) really shine.

Several bands have evolved from an acoustic pub band to a full electric Celtic rock/punk band. Normally they record mainly traditional and standard songs, even after having shifted to the electric line-up. However, Rusty Nail have always trusted in their own songs. Particularly, I feel that their hard rock side is something that makes them different. I guess that a better studio and a professional producer could help them to develop their sound. Because their songs deserve to be heard by a bigger audience.


Track list:

01. Damned Violent Things 4:03
02. Opened Ground 3:56
03. Deadbeat Daddy Docket Day 3:27
04. Yadier Molina 4:52
05. Swallow Your Bitter Spanish Wine 6:22
06. Black Velvet Band 5:51
07. Paper Kisses 5:11
08. Brave New World 3:57
09. Train Yard Pubs 5:23
10. The Auld Triangle 4:27
11. Shamrock Pub 3:30
12. Breakfast At Home 5:03
13. Elizabeth's Eyes 6:20
14. The Parting Glass 2:38
