Except for McGillicuddys, every single one these bands are getting together for the 5-Fifty-5 party this one time only! This is it - you’ll probably (never say never in rock’n’roll) not get another chance to see any of these groups perform again, at least on the same night anyway. Kinda sends shivers down your spine, doesn’t it ... and fear down Mike’s fingers!

McGillicuddys:
We really shouldn’t have to bother to tell you this, but McGillicuddys will slap you upside the heed with Celtic punk rock’n’roll, with lashings of mandolin, tin whistle and accordion all amped up with power chords that will transport you back to a mythical smoky pub with brawling songs of drink, hard living and hard loving.

Resistance:
The Bad Guys are back! Johnny, Mikey, Marky and Gary will be Hijacking you back to 1986! We won’t be taking any Liberties, and you’re guaranteed to not get a Raw Deal (sorry). Expect tunes from the classic “Irresistible” demo, the “Raw Deal” EP and unreleased gems and surprises. A Total blast from the past!!!


Good Squad:
Bassmaster Open E Ran-D and DJ Ice Fresh Mike-E are coming out of retirement to lace ‘em up one more time. Old Time hockey! Sadly, it looks like the Big Cow has gone to the pasture in the sky, but we’ve still got Joe T laying down the beats on Dr Rhythm. That’s right; the mighty Goon Squad is in the motherfucking house. Drink beer, play hockey.

Big Whiskey:
Paddy’s back for one Big Whiskey for the road! Expect sad tales of working at the shoe store (poor Paddy), happy drinkin’ tunes (happy Paddy) - and no, we still won’t play Brennan on the God damned Moor, so there! Five shots of Celtic rockin’ Big Whiskey to kick start your liver!

The Green Men:
Mick and Ewan Green will be dragged out of the pub and thrust on to the stage one last time. To be fair, we told them there was a Whiskey sale on.
Manager at Swans: “You gave them how many free whiskeys?”
Manager at Irish Times after the first night: “Uh sorry, we’ve got someone else booked, so we won’t need you for the next few nights after all. Oh, and we’re not paying you either.”
Tony Kane: “This really is the Rock’n’roll Swindle! I don’t know how you managed it.”

The McGillicuddys (Psycho Ceilidh Punk)

Celtic punk rock’n’roll, with lashings of mandolin, tin whistle and accordion all amped up with power chords that will transport you back to a mythical smoky pub with brawling songs of drink, hard living and hard loving. Album Notes: Under the influence of old school punk rock and traditional Celtic tunes, the McGillicuddys sound like a p... more info
