Celtic Punk Superfan –   Recaps & Reflections Chapbook, 2002-22 by Michael Croland

Celtic Punk Superfan is to my knowledge the first* book written on the genre of Celtic-punk.  Michael Corland is a New York based, long time fan of Celtic-punk and the previous author of Oy Oy Oy Gevalt! Jews and Punk (Praeger, 2016). Superfan is a short collection (think Cliffs Notes size) of essays that Michael has written over the years. The essays are very well written and bring back fond memories to me of the early days (i.e., the 2000’s) of Celtic-punk. What is particularly insightful is that Michael is coming at this from a strong Jewish-American background and it goes to provide you don’t need a drop of Irish blood to be a Celtic punk Superfan (though a drop of Irish Whiskey always helps).

Superfan is available in paperback and for the Kindle via Amazon.

*I bought a book on amazon a number of years back about Celtic-Punk but it was essentially a collection of Wikipedia articles so it doesn’t count.
