They may well have titled it Ten Ways To Numb Your Innards With Drink. McDermott has a cute way with a gallows-humoured country couplet (“Jesus and Jack Daniels are my constant companions”) while the band creak, sway and stagger like a septuagenarian C&W incarnation of The Replacements. Highlights include the moist-eyed ‘On The Beach’, an unlisted, eerie ‘Wayfaring Stranger’, and a remake of Stephen Ryan’s nugget ‘Paradise Of Lies’ tackled like The Stones on ‘Factory Girl’ – skeletal trap kit, fiddles, mandolins and a ball of malt on the side.
$1000 Wedding reiterate what the country ‘n’ Irish acts have known for years – a redneck is a redneck is a redneck, whether in Tennessee or Tallaght, hence unhealthy fixations with hand-me-down religion, strong libation and absent sweethearts.
No frills, lo-fi, stumblebum fun.
