ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Fiddler's Green 2009: SPORTS DAY AT KILLALOE

Fiddler's Green are about to strike again – ready for a new and buzzing game!

This record's predecessor, the high-energy Drive Me Mad! album, had all the potential to appeal to the band's regular following and attract new fans at the same time. Now the reformed band is back on stage as well as in the recording studio. Never change a winning team! - this is the clear message calling the shots on Sports Day at Killaloe, the new Fiddler's Green album.

For two decades, the band has delivered wave after wave of tireless energy attacks, but with the addition of singer/guitarist Pat (Let's rock this, guys!), the band has achieved a unique degree of smooth and straight-to-the point capability that is clearly evident in Bugger Off, the punky opener that hits with a force leaving none but one decision to the referee. It is on this ground that the Irish Speedfolk brand is celebrated in the most convincing shape the band's history has seen yet.

And this is not surprising, because all 19 (!) songs on Sports Day At Killaloe, including the lead vocals, were recorded live in the studio to result in a total of about one hour, with the motto "Get out there and do your very best!" clearly in mind at all times. The Score: This is the band at its finest. The new release features an abundance of new compositions and a handful of catchy traditionals – raw and unrelenting in Life Full Of Pain, highly energetic in Strike Back, playful in 7 Drunken Sailors or in the shape of a pulsating reggae tune (Change).

In-between there are sombre and quieter parts with a melancholy air that allow the listeners to catch their breath (Down By The Hillside, Apology), then song jewels such as Empty Pockets, Empty Fridge or Bottom Of Our Glass, which have all the potential to reach classic status, pump up the pulsebeat to highest levels in no time.
With to-the-point precision and force the ball is passed across the field with astonishing confidence, Sports Day At Killaloe: An ear-busting power load that descends on the listener with the full energy of a live performance.

Following a surprisingly short debate, the motley jury make their decision: What is at work here is a group that is not ashamed of its raw and punky roots and who succeeds in a smart and down-to-earth manner to sound fresher and more energetic than ever before, and – you guessed it – we solemnly promise to push the levels even higher during the Sports Day Tour 2009.

Let the games begin!!!
