Editorial Reviews

Raised on the South Side of Chicago which is known for its huge Irish Catholic community, The Tossers emerged in the early 90's with their own brew of Celtic music fueled by a love of traditional folk songs and punk rock fury. After twelve years and four albums, The Tossers are back with The Valley of the Shadow of Death. It is a collection of songs that run the gamut from a requiem for Dee Dee Ramone to a scathing indictment of the war machine and the politics of profiteering. The Valley of the Shadow of Death was produced by Andy Gerber at Chicago's Million Yen Studios. Victory. 2005.

Inspired by bands like the Chieftains and Pogues in their Irish influenced folk/punk ways, we have the Tossers from Chi-town. As an avid fan of this genre I must say that the Tossers just keep getting better & better with each new album they put out. Their new album "The Valley of the Shadow of Death" blew me away the first time I heard it and still continues to do so. It's been two years since "Purgatory"(their last album) came out and I've been anxiously awaiting any new Tossers material. Unlike most bands of this genre that rely so much on traditional Irish tunes to carry most of their album, the Tossers possess tons of creativety when writing their own original lyrics. Lead singer and mandolin player, T. Duggins voice just matches the music so well, just check out the opening line in "Criminal of Me"-"My great, great, GREAT GREAT GREAT GREAT Granda was a king!" and Becca's fiddle playin' sounds so superb, especially on the traditional "Preab San Ol"(translate "another round" of drinks) which opens up with 2 verses of Gaelic Irish, followed by 2 verses of English, but damn! This tune really jams out as it develops and now has become my favorite on the album. From the anthem like "No Loot, No Booze, No Fun" to the angst fury found on "I've Pursued Nothing" and to the inspirational "Crock of Gold"(would even make Shane MacGowan proud), there's not a bad track to be found on this album. They may not be as well known like other Irish influenced bands out there, but who cares! If they wanted Flogging Molly and Dropkick Murphys fans they could easily grab them. So without hesitation I can easily say this is the best Tossers album to date and the best Irish influenced album of 2005 and I highly recommend it!

After listening to the mandolin dominated Communication & Conviction, the Last Seven Years; the solid albums Purgatory and the Long Dim Road; and finally The Vally of the Shadow of Death, I can honestly say that this is the best Tossers album to date. The songs are well balanced and they have stayed true to the Irish/Punk roots that make their music work. I especially enjoy A Criminal of Me, The Crock of Gold, and the title track; but that is not to say there are any weak tracks on the album. If you're interested in hearing some Irish punk this would be a good place to start off, or perhaps listen to some of the Pogues, who started it all. If you've listened to some of the other Tossers albums and enjoyed them you'll surely enjoy this one as well. If you like some of the other bands out there like The Pogues, Flogging Molly, the Skels, and Blood or Whiskey, then you'll like these boys from Chicago too.

I have been a fan of the dropkick murphys for many moons and also a fan of flogging molly. Though far more obscure the tossers are in the same leage as the previously mentioned bands. Though people say that they are irish punk i feel that they are realy closer to traditional irish music with a hint of punk influence. the resulting sound is astounding. this is the only tossers cd that i own but they are a new discovery for me and i plan on purchasing many more cds of theirs. i highly recomend this for anyone who likes irish music.

I am an avid listener of all things Celtic and would consider this to be one of the top Celtic albums and groups. Duggins has a powerful voice which I find easier to listen to than Flogging Molly. The music relys on powerful banjo and mandolin performances which helps steer them clear of obnoxious guitar riffs which can so often detract from a strong celtic group. The Tossers do a nice job of mixing American themes along with Irish themes and make sure you know that they are from Chicago. All in all the vocals are amazing and have you singing along from the first song to the last. The music makes you want to get up and stomp your feet along with it. What makes the album even better is if you have ever seen the Tossers perform live, then you realize just how much passion and energy they put into their music. I highly recommend this album for anyone who enjoys powerful celtic music.

Catchy album from an Irish-American band based out of Chicago. I had the opportunity to meet these guys in Boston on St. Stephen's Day in 06 and had a great time partying with them. Keep up the good work!

This album is one of my favorite Irish rock albums. I bought the mp3 version and I absolutely love listening to it. I am an Irish dancer and I expect true jig and reel beats in my Irish rock music, and The Tossers deliver! great job to this band from Chicago!

This is totally off-the-wall release for Victory, atleast in comparison to a lot of the crap they've been peddling to the mainstream which I suppose is the irony about Victory--they can release such brilliant records at times and release absolute garbage other times. In anycase, The Tossers basically don't fit into anything Victory currently puts out (or even in the past, that I can think of?) and while I'm not to awfully caught up on this style of music I suppose it's best described as an Irish influenced fusion of folk and punk--something like the Dropkick Murphys but with more of a focus on the irish and folk influences and just a dash of punk (basically you're not going to hear any fast 3 chord progressions here but it does have the attitude of a punk record). From a technical perspective, the music is written very well and it's catchy as hell. Their some tracks that are only 1:30 long and then others that clock in well over the 6:00 mark. The band is very talented at what they do, but even I'll admit this record isn't for everyone. The average listener of Victory's current roster will probably absolutely hate this. Listen before you buy. Highlight tracks include "Good Morning Da," "No Loot, No Booze, No Fun," and the title track.
