    Question Heavy, Aggressive Celtic/Irish Music

    I bought a 3 CD Irish Rebel song set from Sinn Fein Bookshop. I find that many of the songs sound very old and just did not give that passionate feeling that I get when I hear a band like Cruachan for example. There is a song called "F**k the British Army" on that 3 CD set where the vocalist makes a spitting sound over the F which greatly lessens the aggressive vigour of the song. I heard another version of that song dl'ed from the internet which was much more aggressive, uncensored and better over all.

    I heard another Irish rebel song that was suitably aggressive called "Go on home British soldiers". I liked that one very much but I cannot remember who performed it. I previewed a CD by the Wolftones that had a very unagressive, passive feel to it, I.e "I was a merry ploughboy etc." and I went away feeling deprived, and thinking they should put some more balls into their music.

    Are there any suggestions for aggressive, kick ass Irish/ Celtic music or rebel songs/bands?

    Perhaps Milesian or one of the others could help me out on this.

    Post Re: Heavy aggressive Celtic/Irish music

    If you like your Irish Rebel music aggressive then I would recommend a Rebel band from Scotland called Shebeen.

    Their sound is rough, the singer tends to shout rather than sing, and they focus on more modern and aggressive songs such as - Go On Home British Soldiers, Disband the RUC (should be PSNI now, eh? ), SAM Song and Sunday Bloody Sunday

    The venom and gratuitious swearing mark it apart from more traditional, softer sounding bands like the Wolfe Tones and The Irish Brigade

    I've heard that "Fuck the British Army" before....hilarious. I wish they'd make a similar song about the Yankee army.

    I've also heard "Men behind the wire", "Black and Tans", "Rifles of the IRA"

    Give The Pogues a chance, if you liked the Dubliners.

    Yeah, that's really beautiful. Several rebel bands play it though it's really a folk instrumental rather than a rebel song.

    There are some really funny rebel songs too such as Kinky Boots , Old Alarm Clock, Hands Up Trousers Down , and The Crumlin Kangaroos .

    My favourite (traditional) Irish songs

    OFF TO DUBLIN IN THE GREEN

    I am a merry ploughboy and I ploughed the fields all day
    'Till a sudden thought came to my mind that I should roam away
    For I'm sick and tired of slavery since the day that I was born
    And I'm off to join the I.R.A. and I'm off tomorrow morn.

    And we're off to Dublin in the green, in the green
    Where the helmets glisten in the sun
    Where the bayonets flash and the rifles crash
    To the rattle of the Thompson Gun.

    I'll leave aside my pick and spade and I'll leave aside my plough
    I'll leave aside my horse and yoke, I no longer need them now
    I'll leave aside my Mary, she's the girl that I adore
    And I wonder if she'll think of me when she hears the rifles roar

    And when the war is over and old Ireland she is free
    I will take her to the church to wed and a rebels wife she'll be.
    Now some men fight for silver, and some men fight for gold,
    but the IRA are fighting for the land that the Saxons stole.



    THE FOGGY DEW

    As down the glen one Easter morn to a city fair rode I
    There Armed lines of marching men in squadrons passed me by
    No fife did hum nor battle drum did sound it's dread tatoo
    But the Angelus bell o'er the Liffey swell rang out through the foggy dew

    Right proudly high over Dublin Town they hung out the flag of war
    'Twas better to die 'neath an Irish sky than at Sulva or Sud El Bar
    And from the plains of Royal Meath strong men came hurrying through
    While Britannia's Huns, with their long range guns sailed in through the foggy dew

    'Twas Britannia bade our Wild Geese go that small nations might be free
    But their lonely graves are by Sulva's waves or the shore of the Great North Sea
    Oh, had they died by Pearse's side or fought with Cathal Brugha
    Their names we will keep where the fenians sleep 'neath the shroud of the foggy dew

    But the bravest fell, and the requiem bell rang mournfully and clear
    For those who died that Eastertide in the springing of the year
    And the world did gaze, in deep amaze, at those fearless men, but few
    Who bore the fight that freedom's light might shine through the foggy dew

    Ah, back through the glen I rode again and my heart with grief was sore
    For I parted then with valiant men whom I never shall see more
    But to and fro in my dreams I go and I'd kneel and pray for you,
    For slavery fled, O glorious dead, When you fell in the foggy dew.



    LORD NELSON

    Lord Nelson stood in pompous state,upon his pillar high
    And down along O'Connell Street he cast a wicked eye
    He thought how this barbaric race had fought the British Crown
    Yet they were content to let him stay right there in Dublin town!

    So remember Brave Lord Nelson, boys,
    He has never known defeat
    And for his reward they stuck him up
    In the middle of O'Connell Street!

    For many years, Lord Nelson stood, and no one seemed to care
    He would squint at Dan O'Connell who was standin right down there
    He thought the Irish love me or they wouldnt let me stay,
    All except that band of blighters that they call the IRA!

    And then in nineteen sixty six, on March the seventh day,
    A bloody great explosion made Lord Nelson rock and sway!
    He crashed, and Dan O'Connell cried,in woeful misery
    Now twice as many pigeons will come and shit on me!

    Johannes de León,

    There is a Catholic canto written by Alphonso X in the 12th century entitled "Maria Virgin" it has been performed by the Medieval metal band "In Extremo" with bagpipes and electric guitar. It is in Gallego. I was wondering if you could translate it.

    Quen a omagen da Virgen
    et de seu fillo onrrar?
    D'eles sera muit' onrrado
    no seu ben, que non a par.
    E de tal razon com'esta
    vos direi, se vos prouguer,
    miragre que fez a Virgen,
    que sempre nosso ben quer,
    perque ajamos o reyno
    De seu fill' ond'a moller
    primeiro nos deitou fora,
    que foi malament' errar

    Help would be appreciated,
    Thanks.
