Mad Dog’s new album ALMOST HOME, produced by Sean Lakeman, is an album fuelled with the all the essential Mad Dog energy and antics that the band have become known for – Dave Podmore writes engagingly about Mad Dog stuff – as one might expect, all night drives, police car chases – Folk musicians, in particular have been playing tribute to the hero’s of WW1 of late – MDM are no exception, offering up their bone chilling song – “You Can’t Find Me”. “The Sound” written by Seth Lakeman includes beautiful guest vocals from Suzie Mac.
In constant demand and having played just about every festival and two-bit, jibe-arsed dive in Christendom, Mad Dog Mcrea are, in every sense of the word, a live, band – ALMOST HOME – encapsulates that – and so much more.
“It’s always a joy to me when something jumps up and smacks you between the eyes – Mad Dog Mcrea did that to me” – Mike Harding
“A sound mixed, mashed and finely honed through years of live gigs” – Rock ‘n Reel Magazine
“This is rowdy, heartfelt, room shaking and spirit-stirring music that only the dead can’t enjoy.” – ltdstate.com
“Musical magicians Mad Dog Mcrea are synonymous not only with a damn good party but also quality musicianship and the odd surprise” – Talk Torbay
New Album Almost Home Reviews
“This is music that transcends the run-of-the-mill Irish Wannabes and leaves them standing.” – Acoustic Magazine
“An anarchic mix of styles, fantastic!” – Genevieve Tudor (BBC Radio Shropshire)
“The standout part of this album is the superb balance between vocals and instruments. Every track is perfectly clear and with such a diversity of instruments it is a huge tribute to Lakeman that every word is crystal. It is also a tribute to the distinctive voice of guitarist Michael Mathieson.” – 5 stars – Irish Post
“Mad Dog Mcrea perfectly fuse traditional folk songs with a grittier folk rock sound, tinged with notes of Jazz and Bluegrass. Almost Home reaches new depths – from within their ‘self penned songs of adventure, drinking, love and life to traditional tales of gypsies, fairies and pirates’.” – Fatea Records
