Taken from The No. 1 charted Irish Album: ‘The further adventures of….”
“Album of the week” RTE Radio 1 ‘Made for crowd sing-a-longs’ Irish Times
“Celebrating the parts of real Ireland that most other bands don’t reach.” HOTPRESS****
In the last year, The Saw Doctors blazed back phoenix-like, to their rightful place as one of the nation’s most-loved bands. It’s 2011 and here is a band withstanding the odds of the current music age, who still know how to recreate and procreate the songs that put them were they are now; part of Irelands elite, well-known and most loved bands of the past two decades.
‘Hazard’, their new single, is a song about post-Celtic tiger Ireland where almost half a million people are back on the Dole. Born into a repressed, catholic, conservative, small-town, agrarian, angst-ridden and show band infested society, The Saw Doctors are trying to preserve the positive elements of their background and marry them to the sounds which have culturally invaded their milieu through TV, radio, 45’s, fast food restaurants, 24 hour petrol stations and electric blankets.
The Saw Doctors play the following Irish shows:
01 October Saturday, Fontwell Racecourse
12 November Saturday, Dublin Academy
18 November Friday, Belfast Mandela Hall
20 November Sunday, Derry Millennium Forum
See lyrics below.
Hazard aka The Country is F**ked (3.27)
(D.Carton/L.Moran) Please note there is no actual swear words in this song.
The days won’t matter,
And the weeks won’t matter
And the months won’t matter
Shoes won’t matter,
Your tie won’t matter
Your hair won’t matter
So hold on tightly
I’ve handed in the car keys and the phone
The Hazard is back in The Cellar
And me well I’m back on the rock and roll.
Your watch won’t matter
Your phone won’t matter
Your files won’t matter
Targets won’t matter
Deadlines won’t matter
The pressure won’t matter
