Happy New Year To All!!!
Another great year in Celtic-Punk is over and our mate Gareth over there on the other side of the world has been busy compiling a special bonus episode of the best Celtic-Punk podcast in the business!!
These are tough times in Oz at the moment with the fires ravaging the country and we wish everyone over there a safe start to the year so follow the link below and stream live or download to listen to later and enjoy!
Hi everyone and happy new year. And look it hasn’t been a great end of 2019/start of 2020 for many Australians but it has been another great year in the celtic punk/folk punk scene. In addition to the growth of this show I’ve managed to lay my ears on some amazing music and here are the best ten albums of 2019 as judged by the committee of myself and our kelpie dog Banji. Please note there have been some amazing EP’s released this year but I’ve kept this list to LP’s only. For this month’s show I have listed the album as well as the song in the playlist.
Oh also, if you would like to donate to the bush fire relief efforts in this country head to www.redcross.org.au and see how you can help the many people who have lost everything, in some cases their lives and the lives of family, over the Christmas and New Years season.
If you want to get your hands on some merch then follow this link to the shop on Facebook.
