The Causeway Giants: The Causeway Giants

Here we have the 7 track, self titled, self released, debut CD from The Causeway Giants – an 7 piece Celtic rock/punk outfit from Syracuse, NY. The Causeway Giants are tight, skillful and the songs are strong and most importantly it sounds like they are having fun. The two biggest influences I hear here are early Tossers and The Great Big Sea (especially in the vocals). The Pogues also factor into the sound with a true to form cover of “Dirty Old Town” (so true to form that I’m wondering why they even bothered). The best two tracks are “Rothsead” and “Give the Fiddler a Dram” with lots of Charlie Daniels goes Celtic, maniac fiddling.
