ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Thoroughly irresistible, ass-kicking Irish rockers..."
MARGARET MOSER, AUSTIN CHRONICLE

"H-town's heir to the emerald throne of Phil Lynott and Shane MacGowan"
HOUSTON PRESS

"...makes Flogging Molly look like a bunch of nancy boys..."
PADDY ROCK RADIO

"...fast, frenzied, fiddle-powered, and always-fun barroom rock..."
DIRTY LINEN

"...great music spilling with Irish attitude..."
DENIS SHEEHAN, ASKEW REVIEWS

"Fear not the snarling singer, he's a very nice man."
SARA CRESS, HOUSTON CHRONICLE

“STANDARDS is aptly named yet downplays their wonderfully exuberant, irreverent approach to well-known tunes,” says Margaret Moser of the Austin Chronicle. “Thoroughly irresistible, the Houston quartet joins the ranks of kilt-wearing, ass-kicking Irish rockers willing to cross genres to get their point across. Ten tunes leave the listener dying for more, like a pint of Guinness that's been shorted with too much foam.”

John Bowles of Paddy Rock Radio says "Patrick Devlin's growling vocals and grinding guitar, Brian Vogel's crashing and smashing on the drums, Chad Smalley's great vocal harmony and bass work, and some of the best damn violin playing I've heard on an independent release from Turi Hoiseth, just compliment each other tremendously."

Maggie

Worth waiting for!
If you love Irish music... But beware - this is not Danny Boy! Stout Irish Rock at it's finest! Cannot wait for the next CD!! A California fan.

Rick

Blaggards are on their way!
A first effort that is too much fun! This is only a taste of where this band is going! Blaggards Rock Irish like you can't expect. Suspicious Minds w/a violin...only Dave Matthews could have pulled this off...oh...WAIT, this is the Blaggards!!!!

Kathy the OLD lady

They have their OWN sound
"I like the beat and it is easy to dance to!" Being a senior citizen and from the American Bandstand era - I LOVE Blaggards music! They have their own sound and that in itself is so refreshing when you are use to hearing so many bands trying to sound just like another band.

IrishStan

Brilliant!
Fantastic band. This is what the Prodigals sounded like before they went soft. Would love to see the lads live if they get up to the northeast!

Shawn ( ATHENRY FC )

Brilliant and Impeccable. Blaggards make the Houston and Austin scene rock!
The Blaggards will blow ye away everytime, whether its live or another play from STANDARDS. Besides what could be better than the world's two best songs on one disk? ... having them together in one song, Blaggard style(Track 4)! Athenry FC heartily endorses this CD and thanks Blaggards for keeping Austin weird and Houston exciting. Hail! Hail! Blaggards!

Paddy Ken and the Drunken Sailors

Freaking Awesome!
This cd is so freaking awesome it is very well crafted by the studio and can't wait to see them Live! They are very talented and the CD is a must have for all hooligans!

Christian Chavez

Amazing...
Almost as good as the live performance...Almost. Live Blaggards and Studio Blaggards are way far apart, though. Great, nonetheless.

Kathleen

Blaggards are love
I saw these guys here in Austin and had to have the CD. It was everything I expected. The Earth moved. The mountains trembled. The snakes grew feet and walked.

underground head

Very talented
Great cover of Folsom Prison Blues, and Drunken Sailor makes me wanna get drunk and be an asshole. Seriously though, great cd.

BMA
