'Mud, Blood and Beer' is another beautifully crafted album of classic punk and alternative songs loving reimagined by The Bad Shepherds in their distinctive folk style. Featuring re-workings of classics such as Madness' Our House, The Jam's Going Underground and a fabulous rendition of No More Heroes by The Stranglers, this is by far the most accomplished and diverse Bad Shepherds album to date. This is also the first album to feature original Bad Shepherds material. The lyrics to title track, Mud Blood & Beer was penned by Ade as a homage to all the festivals the band have performed at. The closing track, Off To The Beer Tent, is a furious jig written by the band, which showcases (All-Ireland Fiddle Champion) Andy Dinan and (Nightwish collaborator) Troy Donckley's world-class musical talents. Recorded at Chapel Studios, South Thoresby, Lincolnshire, Mud, Blood & Beer was Produced by Ade and Troy, Engineered by Euan Davies (Arctic Monkeys, Kaiser Chiefs) and Mastered by Denis Blackham (The Unthanks, Martin Carthy and Bombay Motorcycle Club).
