Biography

Now in their 14th year the Dropkick Murphys have risen from their basic Irish-punk roots to become a rocking & rolling, raging, green-clover machine. Dropkick Murphys are now one of the best-known rock bands in the world, thanks in part to their ability to tap into the working-class and sports fan culture that permeates Boston and the New England area but even more so due to their ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Reverse the Curse! September 3, 2004
Format:Audio CD
True, "Tessie" is not a typical Dropkick Murphy's song, but as a diehard Red Sox fan who saw the premier of this song at the Red Sox vs. Yankees game awhile back, I thought it was an important piece to add to my collection.

The one thing you can always say about the Dropkick Murphy's is how they are a big supporter of their hometown sport teams and this CD features "The Official Anthem of the Boston Red Sox."

If you are not a Red Sox fan, do not get the CD. You will be disappointed. Otherwise, to all you Red Sox fans out there, buy the CD and help Reverse the Curse!

5.0 out of 5 stars Instantly addicted to these guys after one listen. January 2, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I had heard of this band before...the punk rockers with the piper in the ranks who covered Glasgow Celtic Football Club's terrace anthem "Fields Of Athenry"...so I wasn't caught COMPLETELY by surprise to find that I like them a lot...but early this morning I was watching the bonus features of the 2004 World Series highlights DVD (ASIN: B000679N6E) when I heard this EP's title track being played with such amazing energy and passion that I had to find out at once who the band was. I nipped off to the record shop at once and was thrilled to find the song on this EP (it is also available on another charity compilation CD from Boston and ESPN baseball expert Peter Gammons called "Hot Stove Cool Music" -ASIN: B00015HVNI).

This EP is an incredible introduction to the band; VERY reasonably priced (with proceeds going to charity, so everyone wins), two separate but equally brilliant versions of "Tessie" one more-or-less acoustically performed behind a HUGE ballpark organ), the aforementioned "Fields Of Athenry", as well as a scorching instrumental (either "Nutty" or "Nut Rocker", it's listed both way s in the CD liners), and an acoustic original "The Burden". It's truly a can't-lose proposition for the curious music fan, baseball historian ("Tessie" is basically a recounting of Boston's ragtime fan contingent "The Royal Rooters" raising hell after the box office sold their seats out from under them before a big game), and/or Celtophile.

I'll be buying anything from these guys I can find after hearing this EP with no reservation...this is great stuff, and further proof that 2004 will forever be remembered as The Year Of The Red Sox...Black-&-Tans for everyone!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Will This Reverse the Curse? August 26, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Maybe not, but it will make trying a whole lot more fun. Not exactly "punk", but a really fun song. I'd love to hear 35,000+ at Fenway sing it.

Although having "Nutty" on this CD is a nice bonus for any Bruins fan, 1/2 star off because the the version on "Live on St. Patrick's Day" is better.

Another 1/2 star off, not because the bonus video is bad, but becasue it could have been much better.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Tessie" and the Red Sox Win the World Series!!!! November 5, 2004
Format:Audio CD
YES! Tessie has saved us! The Royal Rooters live! Buy Tessie new--not used--the money all goes to charity!

"... when the game was on the line, Tessie always carried them away...."

Any baseball or Boston history fan will love this. Did we mention the free video included?

Oh, yes--storm-troopers of the Evil Empire, save your money! You'll need it to buy handkerchiefs to cry into!

5.0 out of 5 stars Red Sox and Dropkicks', a perfect match. September 27, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A great track worthy to be the new anthem for Red Sox Nation. It sure sounded great in Fenway this weekend, fresh after the Sox having whipped the Yankees. Nice job Dropkicks', Go Sox, World Series Champions 2004 ! ! !

4.0 out of 5 stars what a great cd October 15, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I really liked this cd! I hadn't listened to this group before, so this was a test purchase. I will be buying more. The Dropkick Murphys have such a unique sound that I find very appealing.

4.0 out of 5 stars What I wanted July 19, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I didn't care much for any other track on the CD, but I only wanted it for the title track. So I got what I wanted. No complaints.

4.0 out of 5 stars From A Red Sox Fan December 29, 2004
By John
Format:Audio CD
"Dont blame us if we ever doubt ya, you know we couldnt live without ya, Red Sox, you are the onlyyy..."

Couldntve said it better myself. This is the official song for the Red Sox now, and I suppose it worked. But, even without the Red Sox references, this is still a good song. DKM have an interesting Irish/Rock/Punk sound that suprisingly works very well with the lyrics of the song.
