Product Description

Product Description

What Men Deserve To Lose is a phrase taken from Derek Cooper's Skye – "Faeries have foibles similar to humans – they can even get drunk. Favourite occupations are spinning, weaving and grinding meal or making faerie arrows. Some faeries are poorer than others, and reading old descriptions of faerie life gives rise to the impression that being a faerie is every bit as tedious as being human. Like rain, faeries usually come from the west and are a thieving lot even though they only take what men deserve to lose." It is also the title of the sparkling new, fifth album from one of Scotland's most innovative and popular groups the Peatbog Faeries. Based on the Isle of Skye, the Peatbog Faeries have accurately been described as 'the future of Celtic dance music'. Their music mixes traditional roots and folklore with influences from jazz, hip hop, reggae and beyond, to produce a unique contemporary fusion. The musicians on the new album are Peter Morrison (pipes & whistles), Adam Sutherland (fiddles), Innes Hutton (bass, acoustic guitar, vocals) Tom Salter (guitar), Graeme Stafford (keyboards), Iain Copeland (drums, percussion & programming), Rick Taylor (trombone & vocals). Also: Nigel Hitchcock (alto & tenor Saxophones), Paul Spong (trumpet), Seamus MacLennan (mandola), Calum MacLean (banjo & programming) and John Disco (additional guitar on Nyup).

Another brilliant album. (No.5)

Brilliant sax on Sudden Dilemma.

Usual mix of drum and brass, fiddles, pipes, whistles etc. superbly distilled. Just like a great single malt.

Liked the sleeve notes with pictures of New York, Sydney and a ruined croft on Skye (Ramasaig)

I have listened to it 3 times back to back after it was delivered tonight!

Buy it and enjoy!

Don't lose it though!

Can't wait to see them live in July

I think this is a bit mellower than Croftwork which I preferred - Croftwork being a bit more lively. Still, I enjoyed it though

Live you can't help but dance to the peatbog fairies and on cd you find yourself playing it several notches louder than you would normally and you catch yourself having a mini dad dance as you go about whatever it is you are doing, children burst into wild dancing and complain when you turn in down! What's not to like? Even if it's not your thing buy it,it will make a small difference to the enjoyment of life.

I love the fairies music and have all the albums available on Amazon.

I first started listening with a tape of Croftwork but when it got shredded I downloaded it and all the other albums. Can't find a weak one among them.

An eclectic mix of Electronics, soundeffects and instruments that is hypnotic and foot tappingly good....

By Antony May TOP 500 REVIEWER on 6 July 2014
Format: Audio CD
'What Men Deserve To Lose' provided me with my first taste of the Peatbog Faeries and to begin with I was both surprised and excited by the groups eclectic mix of sounds. The opening 'The Locks & Rocks Reel' sounds like a combination of The Brand New Heavies with The Corrs but minus the vocals so you can see why I was blown away! Mixing lots of different music genre's and flavours together to create danceable instrumentals - all with a Celtic touch to them - is a unique idea and the band should be applauded for their invention. The HUGE snag with this album though is that, as the tracks come and go, you begin to recognise each track as simply a re-hash of the one before. There is very little variety in pacing here and no vocals (bar a few backing harmonies here and there) and so by half way through the album you find yourself growing VERY tired of the same formula.

The only track on the album to be appreciatively slower is 'Ramasaig' but even here the lead flute and fiddle melodies played sound like the rest just played more slowly. Many of the tracks also outstay their welcome - starting off fresh and bright they drag on for the best part of six minutes doing little different from say two minutes in. In fairness, I suppose there is a limited amount of different sounds you can weave into a traditional Celtic Reel and I guess the purists would not take to anything that didn't have an 'Irishy swing and jig' to it but for me this album is just too much of the same thing.

Not for me, I'm afraid.

Got into this band a year ago after I heard about them when up in Skye.
Did the daft thing and bought their earlier albums until I saw them live at the the Middlewich Folk Festival June 08. They Played the majority of this album and have to say in 8 words." Best live band I seen in 30 years" Have seen Queen, Runrig etc etc
