Album Notes
What the press has said about The Prodigals:
"Though often billed as a Celtic punk band (a la Flogging Molly and Dropkick Murphys), the Prodigals actually favor more nuanced rock, highlighted by leader Gregory Grene’s mellifluous and wide-ranging vocals. Unlike many in their subgenre, they’re also first-rate songsmiths." - New York Daily News
"Fiery, fierce, frenetic, and just the ticket!" – Tony Clayton-Lea, The Irish Times, Ireland
"The best Irish trad-rock band...NYC’S jig-punk answer to the Pogues."- Village Voice, NYC
"vibrant Irish rock" - Chicago Sun Times
"kick-ass Celtic rock" - New York Post
"indelibly Irish" - New York Times
"brilliant" - Irish Voice
"stunning and joyous” – Santa Monica Mirror
"Big Apple cockiness fused with traditional tunes wends its way back home, as New York's answer to The Pogues lands on solid ground. Having detoured to Chicago (via Cavan) these boys' navigation skills leave nothing to chance. Gregory Grene's accordion calls many of the shots, fuelled by the kind of percussive force that NASA would pay dearly for....Swivel the amp right up to eleven and submit to the manic rhythms." – Siobhan Long, The Irish Times, Ireland
"Grene's expertise on accordion and his understanding of Irish music elevates the group as one of the premier Celtic rock bands leading into the 21st century" - All Music Guide (AMG)
"Coming on like an American Oysterband, they kick up the dust in thoroughly convincing fashion." – fRoots, UK
"the best funky-Celtic-folksters doing the rounds...wholly inspirational." - Rock N' Reel, UK
"Gregory Grene's original songs stay true to the style and tone of old, yet speak to modern life, in some of the most well-crafted and poetic verses I have seen" - Punchline, Richmond VA
"what the Ramones might have sounded like if they’d taken traditional Irish music as their starting point" - Pulse Magazine
The Prodigals feature Gregory Grene of County Cavan on vocals and button accordion, and Galway's Dave Fahy on vocals and guitar, with Belfast native Alex Grene on fiddle, driving the melodic end of things; they are backed by a rhythm section that has been deservedly singled out as the most remarkable in the genre, with New York's Brian Tracey on drums, and Bulgarian Trifon Dimitrov on bass. The music blends a funky and anarchic energy that is pure New York with a passion for the traditional music of Ireland. The band has headlined major venues and festivals throughout the United States, Los Angeles and Las Vegas to Chicago, Boston and Maine, as well as abroad in Canada, Germany and Ireland.
Two tracks placed in PRIDE AND GLORY, Ed Norton/Colin Farrell (New Line); other placements include MERCY (NBC-TV) and IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA (FX-TV)
