Donut Kings "Pub With No Beer" Single (Download)
Donut Kings have a history of playing and recording "beer songs." Their most popular beer song is the re-make of a re-make of sort's, the classic "In Heaven There is No Beer" (from 1999's FAPLUNK.) Another popular tune Finnegan's Drink (from 1996's No Evacuation Possible) was a song about a drinking glass kept behind a glass case by one of its famous long dead patrons, Mr. Finnegan. In the song the new patron admires the drinking glass. But in the end he gets his due with his glass being placed next to Finnegans. The name Finnegan was a nod to the classic pub-drinking song Finnegan's Wake.
Being fond of the barley and hop concoction, the Donut Kings, over the years would eventually play the traditional Finnegan's Wake song live; especially when they would play Holyoke's Paper City Brewery on their now famous Friday Night Samplers. The boys eventually decided to record the song proper. Along with it they recorded Gordon Parson's Pub With No Beer. Most people mistake this for an Irish tune, but it actually was written in Australia. In fact the song was voted #5 on the Best Australian Songs of all time by the Australasian Performing Rights Association (APRA).
Here the Donut Kings take two classic staples and rock them up the way only the Donut Kings can do. Gone is the 3/4 time of Pub With No Beer replaced with a rocked out 4/4 time version giving it a bit of Green Day meets the Dubliners feel. Finnegan's Wake is Boston style Celtic Punk with distorted guitars along with a traditional 1918 tenor banjo. These are the NEW pub classics...the NEW drinking songs!

Donut Kings "Seven"
Seven is the most rocking Donut Kings ever! The Donut Kings add a second guitarist (Marty Irizarry) with this release to make the Donuts a 4 piece. This time they take some new roads. Yes, you'll still get a taste of the quirkinesses that you have been accustomed to, but the new roads are big, heavy, and are pure guitar heaven. Think of this as the Hellacopters meet Deep Purple with a side of Clutch and Queens of the Stone Age thrown in for good measure.
Irizarry complements Haberern's melodic guitar. There are some of the most interesting guitar harmonies this side of Skynyrd. The guitars on this record sound like you are sitting between two freight trains. Pure joy. The drums and bass are no slouches here either. Crowell's thunderous vintage kit paired with Desgres's growly Rickenbacker lay down a perfect bed for the guitars and Hammond. Did we mention the Hammond.
Dan Ryan guests on Hammond Organ. Yes, a real Hammond from the 1940's was used to record the tracks. Dan sure knows how to play it as well. His style is very reminiscent of Deep Purple's Jon Lord.

John Lair's RENFRO VALLEY
In 1939, John Lair welcomed the nation to his hometown located in the foothills of Kentucky. Out of the small quaint setting known as Renfro Valley he brought music and entertainment to millions who loved to hear the songs they grew up on. Broadcasting live in a rural setting was a unique way to present the Renfro Valley Barn Dance.
In the early days, John Lair would write songs to tell mountain stories and have talented people from the foothills perform them on radio. The entertainers featured on this CD, such as Red Foley, The Coon Creek Girls, Old Joe Clark and so on, represent just a sampling of all the acts who performed on the stage in Renfro Valley over the past sixty years.
His love for music is captured in this collection of old time country songs, many of which were written by John Lair himself. Also included in this soundtrack is music by Old Crow Medicine Show, an exciting new band that truly captures the music from days gone by.
So come on along and enjoy the Renfro Valley Barn Dance, hosted by John Lair!
