ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Celtic Tex-Mex Country? Imagine equal parts Los Lobos and the Pogues/Black 47 with a splash of American folk/country, and you've got the richly unique flavor of the Mollys. This unlikely but surprisingly compatible mix comes from the band's co-founders, Nancy McCallion and Catherine Zavala. Friends since high school, they played in a punk band (Nadine & the MoPhonics) for a time, then went their separate ways for a time before reuniting in 1990 to form the Mollys. Drawing on their respective Irish and Mexican-American backgrounds, they began to piece together a Celtic Tex-Mex crazyquilt with help from Dan Sorenson (ex-MoPhonics) on bass, Kevin Schramm on accordion, and Gary Mackender on drums. Their first two recordings, Tidings of Comfort and Joy and This is My Round, leaned heavily in the Celtic direction with support from Irish musicians Eugene O'Donnell and Mick Moloney. However, the Mollys also integrated old-time country and Tex-Mex, sometimes on individual tunes or seamlessly interwoven with a Celtic song. Hat Trick added some endearing country elements (Odessa; Came for a Dance, That's All You Do) with the addition of Steve English on pedal steel. The earthy, gruff vocals of McCallion and Zavala and the band's instrumental (especially Schramm) adaptability have the special ability to transport the listener across many locales: swaying or raucously jigging in a pub (Jock in London/I Don't Wanna Go to Bed; Long is The Dark), polkaing in a cantina (La Llorona; La Filamena), waltzing in a honky tonk (Came for Dance), or sitting on the front porch of a shack in the Appalachian coal fields (I'll Be True to My Love; Prospector's Lament). Such diversity has made the Mollys perennial favorites not only at home Jammies for Best Ethnic/Traditional Band, 1993-1997 and Band of the Year, 1997) but also on the North American folk/Celtic festival circuit, and even on the world scene with inclusion of their song On We Go on Putamayo's Celtic Women of the World. 1998's Moon Over the Interstate, perhaps their strongest effort yet, has more catchy accordion-driven Tex-Mex/Celtic/ country/rock which is most vividly presented on the medley Holding On/I Want to Polka/Skoda Lasky (Beer Barrel Polka)/Camival Mundo. There's even a norteno with yodeling called Mi Casita. - Review by David Goodman/ Modern Twang
