Bonus Episode: The Celtic Punkcast Best of 2019

January 1, 2020

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 bushfire 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. 

 

10 - THE CHERRY COKE$ -  'Hibana' from the album 'OLD FOX'

 

9 - THE WHIPJACKS 'Forever Free' from the album 'THIS WICKED WORLD'

 

8 - THE SHILLELAGHS 'Pale Horse' from the album 'RIPPLES IN THE RYE'

 

7 - THE NARROWBACKS'Streets Of Woodlawn' from the album 'BY HOOK OR BY CROOK'

 

6 - HELLCAT MAGGIE 'Zombie' from the album 'SCRATCHING THE SURFACE'

 

5 - ALTERNATIVE ULSTER 'Port Of New York' from the album 'CRAIC AGUS CEOL'

 

4 - THE TEMPLARS OF DOOM 'H-Block Escape' from the album 'HOVELS OF THE HOLY'

 

3 - SELFISH MURPHY 'Brave Man' from the album 'AFTER CRYING'
