Editorial Reviews

Sydney band, THE RUMJACKS, release their much anticipated debut on Laughing Outlaw Records. Gangs Of New Holland is an unrelenting 14 song soundtrack for life, from teat to the tomb. Having spent the last two years peddling their blue collar brand of folkloric punk; The Rumjacks are forging their own sound, over rattling bottles and twisted tales, long nights up and down the East Coast of Australia and likely as not, sprawled on the floor when the sun comes up.

It's a fast paced, fun loving, Irish infusion, of great music. I love listening to it in my rec room playing pool with my friends with pint in hand!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely banging, and catchy as hell September 9, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This album has more great hooks and sharp writing than most celt-punk bands produce over their entire careers. It is angry, jokey, roaring it's defiance at aseptic pop music. The bleak humor in "If I had My Time Again" highlights the pain and regret the narrator feels for his father. "Uncle Tommy" is absurdly catchy and I find my self singing it aloud without noticing. This is a problem as "Uncle Tommy" needs to be basically shouted, ideally while drinking whiskey and having sex. And fighting three men at the same time. Bizarrely, when you read the lyrics you realize that "Uncle Tommy" is an angry assessment of the life of an expatriate Irish soldier in the British army, and not the rambunctious, joyful song you remember hearing. Gangs of New Holland is a hell of an album, and I really recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Rumjacks, underrated in their own right. July 30, 2013
Format:Audio CD
I've been a fan of Celtic Punk and Punk itself for as long as I've been a fan of metal (Its a long time) Everyone seems to know The Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly. I'm here to say, The Rumjacks are in a league of their own. Everyone song on this album has something special...attitude. So few bands actually but their own vibe into an album anymore. Not these fellas. Without a doubt, regardless of whatever genres of music I own, Gangs Of New Holland is one of the best albums I own. If you are interested in these guys, I assure you, its money well spent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Always on Rotation! May 31, 2013

I picked this album up after a friend turned me on to the band. Great album that is in constant rotation. Now let's hope the singer gets his s*** together and the band can carry on and put out more music!
