2016 release from the Australian Celtic punk band. "There's drinking music, and then there is the Rumjacks, who are pre-drinks, the party, the after-party, the blurry ride home and the hangover all rolled into one." - Blunt Magazine.TRACKLIST:
It's what's become vintage Rumjacks it's out the gate and straight down to business.
Recorded at Bomba Studios in regional Victoria, Sleepin' Rough, the Sydney quintet's third album, picks up where 2015's Sober & Godless left off. Booming from the get-go with 'Patron Saint Of Thieves', a thundering punk aesthetic intertwined through the group's Irish and Scottish musical heritage, this album is full throttle, all spit and bile, raucous and real.
But don't make the mistake of thinking The Rumjacks are just an angry bunch of punks. Far from it - their music, while hard and fast for the most part, carries with it an element of fun and frivolity, harking back to their Old Country roots, places where music is an integral part of community gathering, soundtracking the times with an almost savage joy.
And this is Sleepin' Rough. The melodic 'A Fistful O' Roses', the acoustic 'Les Darcy', the ska-esque 'Kathleen', all carry a cheeky bonhomie, sometimes belying their subject matter, but always bringing a smile, a head-nod, a foot-tap. These tracks sit tidily alongside flat-out punk ('Dead To Me', 'Zielona Gora'), and the band's now trademark mixture of the two.
Stories of life, love and loss, set to a throbbing beat.
