Schottischer Folk-Punk aus Kanada (British Columbia)

Founded in 1992 by the larger than life, Scottish punk-rock poet laureate,
Mr Paul McKenzie, this merry band of miscreants has spent a quarter century
circumnavigating the globe to bring the McKenzies gospel to an ever-expanding
throng of rebels, scallywags and ne´er do wells. There´s not many bands that can
boast of a nearly 30 year career as staggeringly adventurous, wildly tempestuous
and utterly death-defying as The Real McKenzies. It would be a serious mistake to
write them off as just another Celtic punk band (they’ve been around longer than
the Dropkick Murphys after all). They are an unstoppable juggernaut of touring
mayhem. A ferocious troupe of insanely talented minstrels, storytellers and
entertainers melding traditional acoustic and electric instruments to create a
sound like no other. Their list of accolades is long. From sharing the stage with the
likes of NOFX, Rancid, Flogging Molly, Metallica and Shane McGowan to
appearing in film, books and video games to signing with the legendary Fat Wreck
Chords, their legend only continues to grow.
Their eleventh full-length album Beer & Loathing is a true return to form for The
Real McKenzies. Dueling guitars double up against soaring bagpipes while Paul
regales the listener with epic tales of alcohol soaked debauchery, historic sagas
and hard-fought personal battles. Whether you’re a McKenzie lifer or new to the
game, these 12 glorious songs are sure to get your blood up and your heart
pumping.
For fans of: The Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly, Gogol Bordello, The Pogues.
What the press is sayin´
"The Real McKenzies are the rare outfit that improves with every album." –
Punknews
"…they´ve never strayed far from their unique blend of Scottish folk and
Spirit of ´77 punk rock. Much like Boston´s Dropkick Murphys, there is ample
bagpipe to be heard on any of The Real McKenzies´ releases, which lends
well to the band´s ear for melody." – Absolutepunk
