Dropkick … Who? Flogging … What? Mr. Irish Bastard: Fine Irish Punk Drinking Music!!
MR.IRISH BASTARD shot into existence in as the brain child of singer/song writer Mr. Irish Bastard Himself in mid 2006. With only one song recorded the band found itself supporting folk legends The Levellers on their European Tour. The genie was firmly out of the bottle and has remained so since then.
In the past three and a half years MR.IRISH BASTARD has built a loyal fan base and has achieved international recognition for the definitive Irish folk punk sound it has created, carving out something which stands out from the rest. After 180 shows in 10 countries MR.IRISH BASTARD is a live force to be reckoned with. Beouf, Gran, Lily, Ivo and Himself are tight band, excellent musicians, blending tin whistles, banjos, mandolins, accordions and raw guitars into a unique sound. The band has never taken itself too seriously and its humorous on and off stage antics make every gig a special experience.
