Finny McConnell (frontman): “No politics, no religion,
just good times, and everybody having fun. Unity is the
underlying message.” Sounds like the perfect world
New single: LAST CALL AT THE BAR
“It’s a song that bartenders can relate to – that feeling you get when
you tell everybody to bug off and go home. It’s a fun song that sticks
in your head, and it fits the Jameson Street theme.”
TUTV: If you are a fan of Irish/British desperados The Pogues and/or
Boston’s mavericks The Dropkick Murphys there’s a great chance you
know Canadian party animals The Mahones too.
If not, keep on reading.
If you are a regular barfly you’ll beg the bartender to have
their new swaying single on his customers’ playlist and play
it out loud on his speakers.
It’s a booze anthem that’s very welcome in these grim times. Invite your
zombie friends too and celebrate the last call with a big tasty pint, while
dreaming about a perfect bar world without politics and religion .
Bottoms up, folks and sing along…
