The Pogues – White City [Irish Folk Rock]

Here’s another classic from the Hiberno-English trad-rock band that shook the Establishment in the eighties and nineties. Rebel Voice wishes it to be known that the lead singer of this group finally got new teeth! If you enjoyed this, please share

Lisa O’Neill – Rock The Machine [Irish Folk Music]

This ballad by the Cavan singer-songwriter, Lisa O’Neill, speaks of the way in which machines are replacing people without improving anyone’s lives. We could be forgiven for thinking that increased mechanization is going to create a new society where technology does all the work and we can enjoy a life of leisure. Sadly, and at […]

The Pogues – A Pair Of Brown Eyes [Irish Folk Rock]

This is a haunting ballad about a dog. OK, so you might wonder why go to all the bother for a mutt, but Michael JacksonĀ sung one about a pet rat (Ben), so Rebel Voice prefers this one about man’s – and woman’s – best friend. Keep the tissues close… If you enjoyed this, please share

The Pogues – Misty Morning Albert Bridge (Irish Trad Rock)

The Pogues are a Hiberno-English band who stand as one of the greatest musical acts to (almost) come out of Ireland.

The Pogues – The Sick Bed Of Cuchulainn [Irish Folk Rock]

The Pogues are a raucous lot. They are the stuff of legend in Ireland and anywhere Irish people assemble, which is a lot of places across the world. Although a Hiberno-English band, their sound is all Irish, as is their attitude. They would be classified as a trad/folk punk band, but are so much more. […]

Lisa O’Neill – England Has My Man [Irish Folk]

Lisa O’Neill is from Cavan close to the English-imposed border in Ireland. She is a fairly fresh voice on the Irish folk scene and a favourite of local DJs who know their music. He voice is certainly distinctive and her lyrics are insightful and profound. She is one to watch for the future. If you […]
