McDermotts 2 Hours: Goodbye To The Madhouse

I’ll make no bones about it, McDermotts 2 Hours are easily one of my favorite bands on the whole Celtic/folk/Rock scene – Why? Great songs, great playing and amazing lyrics in the best story telling tradition. “Goodbye To The Madhouse” is the McDermotts 4th release since the band reformed in 2000 and the 1st without The Levellers branding on the CD cover – though various Levellers are still very much involved and it’s out on “Otf recording”, The Levellers own label – if that’s not an endorsement I don’t know what is. “Goodbye…”, certainly doesn’t disappoint and reaches all my expectations and those were set way high. Again, the songs are great, the playing and production masterful and they lyrics powerful and tragic. Highlights – all 11 tracks, but especially Molloy, Crusaders, The true story of Eugene McQuaid
