Belfast: Белфаст

The band Belfast (Белфаст) are from Moscow of course. Who self style themselves as “Rock-a-Paddy”. So what is “Rock-a-Paddy” you ask? Punked up, old school Rockabilly with a (talented) Steve Jones on lead guitarist, and a kick ass rhythm section playing Irish influenced and traditional standards (Irish Rover, Drunken Sailor, Follow me up to Carlow). The vocals are all in Russian and even though I don’t speak or understand a word that doesn’t take away anything from my enjoyment. Great band, great CD and their version of “Paddy public enemy #1” is amazing.
