The Muckers: Irish Goodbye

Irish Goodbye, is the follow-up from The Muckers to their excellent last release, One More Stout. If you haven’t heard The Muckers (and why not?), they are a very fine Georgia based, Celtic-pub-rock outfit.  

Irish Goodbye, is a folk-rocking album of both originals and covers.  I love their galloping version of the Wolfe Tones, Rock on Rockall, and the cover of The Rumjacks, My Time Again. The Ramones, Sheena is a Punk Rocker, has been transformed into, Saoirse is a Folk Rocker. Their original, Buzzards Bay, is a nautical throwback to lead Mucker, Jeff Shaw’s time in New Bedford’s, The Pourmen, while, Out On My Ass, is a great piece of hedonistic alt-Country.

The Muckers: The Muckers

December 18, 2016

The term Mucker is “Dublinees”. It’s short for Muck Savage which in Dublin terms is anyone in not from Dublin city. These Muckers are from Atlanta, Georgia, so I guess that qualifies them as Muckers in US eyes.

The self titled, self released CD mixes fiddle lead Celt-punk’n’roll with sea shanty’s, Gypsy punk (anyone remember the Domolites folks?) and just a touch of blue-grass. In short (and aren’t all my reviews) a strong debut.

Highlights include a great cover of Jackdaw’s Molly (fiddler Jeff Shaw is a transplanted Buffalo bhoy) and New York Girls. Eddie Connies is another standout and soon to be classic.
