Release date: March 17, 2017
Running time: 26:50 , 8 tracks

We all know hard-working bands that are always on tour, for instance, The Mahones and The Real McKenzies. But there are also some younger bands that have released several CDs and are touring big festivals and small venues all over Europe, for instance Selfish Murphy from Romania and Jolly Jackers from Hungary.

Things are going too fast for Jolly Jackers. The band from Dunaújváros moved to Budapest. Unfortunately, former fiddler Krisztina Ujházy decided to leave the band at the end of January. She was the only band member who stayed in Dunaújváros because of her commitments. Nevertheless, she recorded the fiddle on “Blood, Sweat and Beer” in December 2016 and most of music was written by her too. Márk Fenyves is the new guitarist and he co-wrote the music for “Devil” with Krisztina and the music for “John not the Silver” with all the other band members.

Blood, Sweat and Beer” was released last Saint Patrick’s Day. The album title showcases the band’s philosophy: hard work and a lot of fun can be compatible. The production is spotless and brilliant fiddle and flute are blended with amazing electric guitar.  The songs are catchy and fresh as usual: kick-ass Paddy and the Rats influenced pub’n’roll songs like “Blood, Sweat and Beer” and “Hymn for the Gang”, a fantastic pirate number (“Back at Home”), a badass song with some ska punk and infectious chorus (“Drive”) and a superb ballad (“Let it Rain”).

Jolly JackersBlood, Sweat and Beer” comes in a jewel case with an 8 page booklet and has been released by Tom-Tom Records. This is another proof that six piece Hungarian band has reached the top. And this is not easy in the burgeoning Hungarian Celtic punk scene.
