There’s a price that you pay living life on the booze! The newest tune from Vancouver’s Paddy Waggin’ featuring neighbour Finny McConnell from The Mahones.
‘Life On The Booze’ dates back to 2020 and was written by Aidan Carroll (AKA Paddy) after celebrating his birthday bash. Left feeling the worse for wear and with unusually high levels of hangxiety.
“I penned it all in one go upon waking. Then strummed out the chords in the afternoon as sort of a cathartic therapy for my aching head.”
It seemed like a good way to spend the day recovering and when introduced to the rest of the band they began working on it straight away and plans were made to record it. With it all set to go the opportunity for Paddy Waggin’ to play with Finny McConnell from legendary fellow Canadian Celtic-Punks The Mahones on his solo tour. Finny jumped at the chance to sing guest vocals along with Aidan with everyone sharing backup vocals and choruses and the song was recorded by Larry Lich @ Eagle Ears studios.
For the end of year ‘Best Of’ awards we will be introducing a new category for Best Celtic-Punk video and ‘Life On The Booze’ will be a strong contender for #1 spot! The brainchild and creation of Paddy Waggin’ drummer Diamond Dick who sadly missed the recording through illness forcing the band to use a drum machine for the track. Needless to say he wasn’t too happy about being replaced by a drum machine so as part of his healing he took it upon himself to get his revenge by turning the band into cartoon characters! He then created a dancing metronome robot to represent the drum sounds he despised and then destroys it at the end of the video.
No Irishman were hurt in the making of this video.
