Rats In The Burlap Rats In The Burlap is The Real McKenzies’ ninth long-player and continues the tradition of blending classic Scottish/Celtic musicality with pure punkrock melodic badassery. Song themes run the gamut from the wild and wonderful world of international touring (Midnight Train To Moscow, Up On A Motorbike) to rebellious defiance in the face of tyranny (Who’d A Thought, You Wanna Know) to a hilariously heartwarming story of a cat who stole Paul McKenzie’s haggis on Robbie Burns Day (Bootsy The Haggis-Eating Cat…duh). With fourteen loaded tracks of fortified McKenzies madness, Rats In The Burlap is destined to become an instant classic with old and new fans alike. Much like a fine single malt whisky, The Real McKenzies only get better with age.
Westwinds CD They’re baaaack… Westwinds is packed to the brim with roaring, rollicking and epic tales that shanghai the listener on a thirteen song, sea-tossed journey through the wild and wonderful world of The Real McKenzies. Recorded over several months at Crabapple Downs by the phenomenal Steve Loree, Westwinds is a sonic shot of deliciousness delivered straight to your ear holes. From the unapologetic raised middle figure salute of “Fool’s Road” to the hook-laden tongue-in-cheek “My Luck Is So Bad” to one of the most poignant and blood-pumping renditions of “Barrett’s Privateers (Stan Rogers)” that you’ll ever hear, this killer album is set to become an instant classic in the collections of both new and diehard fans alike. Much like a fine single malt scotch, The Real McKenzies only get better with age . BUY IN CANADA BUY IN THE REST OF THE WORLD BUY ON iTunes!
