#1 The Peelers: Down and Out in the City of Saints
The best band in the whole Celtic-punk universe and another great album.
#2 Ferocious Dog: Hope
Hope is FDs breakthrough into the big time.
#3 The Dropkick Murphys: Turn Up The Dial
A nice back to form album. No surprises but we don’t want or like surprises from the Murphys.
#4 The Rumjacks: Hestia
Still fighting strong after the messy departure of original vocalist, Frankie.
#5 Blaggards: Blagmatic
Blagmatic may have taken a while but it was worth the wait.
Best new band
The Dead Rabbits: 7 Ol’ Jerks
Not exactly a new band but new to Shite’n’Onions. Pure Celtic-punk.
Best acoustic solo album
Finny McConnell:The Dark Streets Of Love
I’ve always said Finny is a first class song writer.
Best Celtic-punk zine
London Celtic Punks
Well written and always new content. The go to news source.
Best Celtic Punk memoir
Celtic Punk Superfan (Recaps & Reflections Chapbook, 2002–22)
by Michael Croland
Special shout out
Trouble Pilgrims: Blood, Glass & Gasoline
