“a solid slab of heavily Pogues influenced Celtic Punk” — Shite N’ Onions
Greenland Whalefishers started out in Bergen Norway in 1994, long before anyone had heard of bands like Flogging Molly or Dropkick Murphys. Combining british punk with celtic folk influences, the band soon became one of the most interesting post-pogues bands .
Almost two decades of touring all around the world, releasing seven full length albums, piles of singles and EPs and an uncountable number of split-releases, contributing with music to the movie “Boondock Saints — All Saints Day”, etc. places the underground folk punkers in Greenland Whalefishers as one of the worlds most credible celtic rock bands.
Greenland Whalefishers’ album “SONGS FROM the BUNKER” was rated to a fifth place by Shite N’ Onions on the list over the best Celtic Punk CDs in 2010. Shite N’ Onions also placed Greenland Whalefishers’ album “Loboville” on their list of the “10 BEST CELTIC PUNK ALBUMS EVER”, above artists like Dropkick Murphys and Shane MacGowan.
During the USA & UK Tour of 2010, Greenland Whalefishers recorded their set at a festival in England. “Live at Farmer Phil’s Festival” was released in april 2012 as LP on blue vinyl including download card for mp3. The album has received outstanding reviews.
Greenland Whalefishers have toured in the USA, Japan, England, Germany,Belgium, The Netherlands, Italy, Scotland, Poland, Czeck Republic etc, and will continue touring all over with more power and energy than ever on what may be called their never ending world tour. It is all this hard work and all the experience touring that has made critics applaud the bands albums and concerts saying;
” this is probably one of the best Celtic Punk bands you will ever see perform live “.
