THE BRAMLEYS – S/T – long before Irish-punk and Celtic-punk exists

September 18, 2017 Comments off

OUT NOW
In the new digital series
“Back on Track”
“never released before on the digital platforms

This album was released in 1993 for the first time.
This was long before the terms Irish-punk and Celtic-punk with distortion guitar exists.
This is straight in the vein of Pogues, Men They Couldn’t Hang and Dubliners.


In 1990 the brothers Peter and Patrick Heurlin get the band The Bramleys together.

Peter found Ed, an Irishman in Sweden, drunk and singing behind their couch together with a friend in Peter’s apartment in Malmö, Sweden. Patrik and Anders had previously been playing together in Nasty Nutez. Richard and Alexander were old buddies to the band.
And the band was born…

1992-1995 The Bramleys toured a lot in Sweden, the craving for Irish folk rock grew fast.

Earlier, the scene most consisted of the troubadours, but now came The Bramleys and poured a bucket of kerosene on the glow that was about to go out.

BANG !!!!!!! Parties, pubs, Guinness, St. Patrick’s Day, gigs and private events.

1995 The Bramleys came to an end.

Alexander was the one who continued to play music, he ended up in David and the Citizens.

“Live at Woodstock

New single out now

In 2015 Celtic punk rockers Finnegan’s Hell made their first appearance at Woodstock Festival in Poland – the biggest open air festival in Europe. The gig was a huge success and Finnegan’s Hell was voted “best foreign band” by the audience, meaning the sharp-dressed gentlemen were invited back to perform on the main stage in 2016. This time some 100 000 people came to see the show.

Few Celtic punk bands have the ability to get 100 000 people to pogo dance, or to sing along to songs that have not even been released. Finnegan’s Hell managed to do just that at Woodstock, and to celebrate pulling off that stunt the band is now releasing the EP “Live at Woodstock”.

The live EP features the furiously fast drinking song How Am I To Make It?” and the crowd pleaser “Coal Mine” – two tracks which give a foretaste of the new album from Finnegan’s Hell to be released this fall. Last but not least the band’s classic instructional song on the proper way of bringing up a child was added to make the EP a tripple Celtic punk treat. “Jar Of Porter” that is. Enjoy it loud to a pint of plain!
