St. Patrick's Events
It's Psycho Ceilidh time again, and
the band have been rehearsing hard (down the pub most often)
and are set to get the party started. This year we'll be
celebrating at Logan's Pub in Victoria, and the Cambie in
Nanaimo. You can take this as a formal invitation to come
on down and join us for some singing, dancing, drinking
and general chaos at the new and improved Logan's, and good
old Cambie. We'll be doing two long sets of all your favourites,
so get there early! See the shows page.

SHITE N ONIONS v. 2-What the Shite/various:
Another super sized serving of Irish folk punk that shows
it can easily be St. Paddy's Day everyday, especially if
you like them best when they end in a drunken brawl. High
octane and out of control, this is music to get wild to
and you don't have to be Irish.
Midwest Record Recap
In the fall of 2005, the band recorded
our version Phil Chevron's classic song Thousands are Sailing
for a Pogues compilation to be released by the Belgian label
Ghetto Rock. Sady Johan, who ran Ghetto Rock, has passed
away and the project is now in limbo. Therefore, we have
decided to make the song available as a free MP3 from this
site. The McGillicuddys would like to send our sympathies
to Johan's family and friends. Rest in peace.
"Leaving of Liverpool"
We're making our video of the "leaving
of Liverpool" available to those of you who couldn't
get your mitts on Retch
Records' World Wide Noise Attack DVD. Click on the
image to play the QuickTime movie.
