I always get a kick outta Germans playing Irish music and especially the Celtic-punk variety – the accented English and that Toutonic aggression and energy. The Auld Corn Brigade carry on that fine tradition of The Porters and Fiddlers Green – loud Celtic punk’n’roll. A Fighters Lullabies is very much in the style of The Porters “A Tribute to Arthur Guinness” – all the tracks are covers of tradition and rebel ballads give a serious German ass kicking – though I will say that while the style is like The Porters its just a wee bit mellower, maybe female lead vocals. Never the less a very fine and enjoyable release.
