Adrian Edmondson’s celebrated folk-punk outfit The Bad Shepherds return to Australia to celebrate the release of their third album “Mud, Blood & Beer”. After the rapturously received 2013 tour, Adrian (Vyv from The Young Ones/Bottom/Bad News), along with old comrade Troy Donockley (Nightwish) & new recruit Terl Bryant (drummer for John Paul Jones & Peter Murphy), hits the road nationally for 12 dates in April.
Mud, Blood & Beer is another beautifully crafted album of classic punk & alternative songs lovingly reimagined by The Bad Shepherds in their distinctive folk style. Featuring re-workings of classics such as Madness’ ‘Our House’, The Jam’s ‘Going Underground’ and a fabulous rendition of ‘No More Heroes’ by The Stranglers, this is by far the most accomplished and diverse album from The Bad Shepherds to date.
This is also the first album to feature original Bad Shepherds’ material. The lyrics to the title track ‘Mud, Blood & Beer’ were penned by Ade as an homage to all of the festivals that the band have played at. ‘Off To The Beer Tent’, the album closer, is a furious jig which showcases the world class talents of Andy Dinan (all-Ireland fiddle champ) and operatic metal Nightwish’s Uilean pipe player, Troy Donockley.
