ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
FINALIST 2006!!! "Best Celtic Album" justplainfolks.org

Imagine a session band escaping from the psycho ward, commandeering a steamroller up & down the interstate, plugging in and turning up to eleven, all the while raving about thistles and shamrocks floating to the shores of America. This is Na’Bodach! Billed as a “five man, high octane Celtic band” they have been playing to packed houses and festivals throughout the Eastern US!

It began in 1999, as three friends gathered for sessions. Casey Jones, George Zienowicz and Andy Redmond recognized that songs known by Irish and Scottish soldiers and the Celtic music that evolved in America were rich repositories that could use a little exploring. With the addition of two more friends, Bud Osthaus and Glenn Owens and, (since all members were a bit older than their “garage band” days), the name Na’Bodach, (Gaelic for “not old men”), seemed appropriate.
Research into the various melodies and lyrics that accompany these tunes and the historical integrity employed in documentation displays the respect for the traditions and culture that Na’Bodach share with their audience.

However…
The use of electric guitar, electric bagpipes, electric fiddle, electro-acoustic guitar and a pumped up bodhran, juxtaposed with a strong, four man vocal range, are insuring that a person at a Na’Bodach gig are treated to an experience in Celtic music they won’t soon forget. Larry Kirwan of Black47 fame has been moved to call Na’Bodach “sledgehammer Celtic” and “one of the best of the new bands.”
A “Neutrik” electronics endorsee, Na’Bodach appears at Celtic festivals in the Eastern USA and venues close to their home area of Philadelphia, PA. Their critically acclaimed debut CD, “Knickers Down, Bottoms Up”, continues to sell well throughout North America, Europe and Japan as is their most recent release, “An Intelagent Design” Both albums have been recognized by “Just Plain Folks”, an independent music organization, as nominees for “Best Celtic Album” in 2004 & 2006!
They are true to tradition and culture yet, they always throw in a few drams of high octane so we can all enjoy the eclectic musical mix that is Na’Bodach!

Not a Rock and Roll band influenced by Celtic music,
but a Traditional band influenced by electricity!

ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!
An Intelagent Design is addictive... it's the only thing I've played in my car since receiving it... esp. since seeing them on St. Patty's Day at Kenny's... imagine singing the Cuckoo's Nest in your head while in a corporate meeting... the irreverent humor knocks my socks off... I am going to purchase a few more CD's for my family and friends... And, CD Baby rocks... they have stock and a great price... Nabodach, not your average Celtic band... these guys are GGrrreat!

A Classic!
Quite possibly the most unique and interesting Celtic album ever! No other band sounds like Na'Bodach. This album should live on to become a classic of the genre. Why they are not more recognized is a mystery. Keep recording, lads!

Outstanding!
Na'Bodach is, quite simply, the best Celtic band around. INTELAGENT DESIGN is great - in tandem with KNICKERS DOWN, BOTTOMS UP and a few pints of Guinness, you got yourself hours of good music and good stout. Only thing better: seeing Na'Bodach live.

First Review!!!!
I got their CD at the release party, and man oh man. If you like Knickers Down, this is a MUST HAVE. If their first album was like finding your favorite pair of pants after they've been missing for a month, then this album is like finding your favorite pair of pants, with $100 in the pocket. BUY IT, keep the angry walrus off your lawn!
