“Originally released in Dec. 2011, this 7 song EP is high energy music brilliantly played by a top-notch group of musicians. Stand out tracks for me (whether I’m running or sitting back with a pint) are “Six O’ Clock Swill” and “That’s Just Me”. Which is saying a lot because every single song on here is great. Hugh Morrison‘s gritty, authentic, vocals sit well with music that has a kind of nostalgic tone. Even though we’re talking about Celtic rock, distorted guitars and power chords aren’t the main ingredient here. Instead, they lend support to the catchy melodies laid down by fiddle, banjo, and whistles, that in turn, inspire a vocal performance that listeners will no doubt sing along with. A near perfect mix. Celtic Rock is strong in Texas, and Murder The Stout leads the way. Fans of Celtic music will dig this 7 song EP, like the thousands that already do. The reviews speak for themselves. If it isn’t in your collection yet, now’s the time! ”
