The Pubcrawlers - New England Celtic Punk / Press

“Just check the new release from the Pubcrawlers, One Too Many Again, yet another delicious blend (that’s a Jameson reference, people) of traditional bagpipe, accordion, fiddle, mandolin, banjo, and tin whistle paired with a ferocious kick drum, thrumming bass, growling electric guitar, and a propensity to play at 150 bpm. You’ve got trainwrecks, shipwrecks, and plain old drunks all over the place, the ’crawlers mixing the morbid with the mundane while never having anything less than a blast... [y]es, this is the kind of album you might find yourself sleeping off. But that’s okay. If you don’t remember what happened, just press Play again.”

“For any of you out there who have found yourselves out until last call on a school night... again... here is your theme music. Fever pitched and thoroughly irreverent, this album is all about having a beer and singing along with songs about beer. You might even stomp your foot a bit while listening. I haven’t been able to stop since the fourth track, "The Last Saskatchewan Pirate." The sound is huge and unrelenting on all 13 tracks, which are, for the most part, traditionals that have had the dust gleefully kicked out of them. I spoke to Andy (drums) and Kevin (vocals, mandolin and acoustic guitars) on St. Patty’s day at the Barley Pub in Dover as they "prepared" for a show later that night, and Kevin warned me that I wouldn’t be able to make it through this record without a beer. He was right.”

“There is absolutely no doubt that you are having one hell of a time when you’re listening to the Pubcrawlers, whether it’s a live show, or you’re playing their new CD, Another Night on the Floor, at a house party. Authentic Irish jigs are infectious. You have to drink and you have to dance. You have to get rowdy. The Pubcrawlers inspire just that kind of vibe, along with some kicking, wrestling, and general flailing about, while slamming beers in a collaborative cheer of knowing you’re having the best time of your life. Oi! It’s no shock that they won Best World Music Act. They’ve got the Celtic history thing down and they rock out. In kilts. (How hot is that? I’m so having the Pubcrawlers’ baby.) And we thought these guys just rocked the hell out of traditional Irish tunes. Noooo. They’re friggin’ heroes. If you were at the Award Show, you know just what I mean. Thanks, Pubcrawlers, you saved my life.”
