What the press have to say about us...
"The energy is boundless and infectious and if maybe The Babes are best experienced live they have done as good a job as could ever be done in transferring that live sound onto disc. Greetings From London is a refreshingly raw album that goes to show that their is still plenty of room in the celtic-punk scene and it’s not all played out. Just as you think the scene has got stale and there’s never going to be another band coming along that doesn’t instantly remind you of something else then one appears and this time it’s The Babes"
“A band that is totally unique. They have invented their own genre and they are pretty fucking awesome live.
They're an anarcho/trash punk band with bagpipes.
There really is no other band like them. You couldn't call them Celtic Punk despite the bagpipes”
Chris Brown, LCP music reviewer
The Babes play their own blend of punk and bagpipes. Celtic punk? Punk folk? Folk Punk? Let’s say bagpipes punk. Probably not your usual bagpipes punk, but highly recommendable. As Gord Taylor said in an interview: “(…) my advice for new bands who wanna play bagpipes in their band…don’t worry about trying to be ‘Celtic Punk Rock’. Just try to be Fucking Good!” And The Babes are fecking good!
“There’s a sort of angry driving punk rhythm section and vocals, along with single note squeals which brings to mind actually the more out there lo-fi post-punk of the late 70’s and early 80’s more so than a Disorder with bagpipes, definitely a bit odd”
