Default Irish punk

Dear all,
I have a few question for Irish punk fans out there:
Would you say that Irish punk is underrated? and why?
Do you believe it was as popular as English punk?

Audrey.

Well, poor Audreyb didn't stay with us for long, and who can blame her if no-one answered her question?

As I can only think of The Pogues (who are only half punk and who come from London ) I'd say, Yes Irish punk is def underrated.

Whatever happened to all, anyway? I miss that guy!

Interesting thing about Irish/Celtic Punk is so many bands who play it are, well, not Irish. Plenty of Americans, Canadians and Australians, but if you look, there are Serbian, German, Norwegian ... it's all over the place, dude. Just like the Irish!

My Irish Punk band are The Radiators from Space. They don't play a blend of Celtic music and Punk (well not on their debut album TV Tube Heart). They are more of the original "back to the basic of Rock and Roll" style of Punk Rock. They quote Nut Rocker by B.Bumble & The Stingers in the Television Screen intro. It's like only a few bars but interestingly Punk bands do that, play an intro to one song then break into their own song.

Orthodox Celts are a Serbian band that play Celtic music.

Orthodox Celts - Star Of The County Down


Black 47 will blow your socks off, they are like a cross between Prefab Sprouts and Celtic music. This band is a dream come true for you.

^ Sometimes you read a post that gives you some clue as to the extent of your musical ignorance.That's how I'm feeling right now, as Flogging Molly is the only band I've heard of here.

I absolutely loved the Black 47 song, though tbh, apart from their being Serbian, I didn't hear anything special in the Orthodox Celts' version of Country Down. But in any case, both bands bear out what TH says: the Irish and Irish culture are everywhere!

I liked the 70s punk pop out of Northern ireland if that counts. Rudi and Starjets in particular.

Does Northern Ireland count? If so, the Undertones' self titled debut is god tier.
