The Shambolics are an Adelaide band formed in 2014 with the intention to write and perform original rollickin’ roots tunes. The lads play what can be loosely termed Celtic Pirate Punk and after playing many gigs around Adelaide and beyond they released their first EP in 2014, six original songs called Pogue Mahone, that’s Irish for ‘Kiss My Arse’!
After touring, radio appearances and playing festivals in 2016 they completed their first full length album called Riot on Race Day. Ten original songs from Celtic to Country and even a bit of Spaghetti Western, Riot was recorded and produced locally at Locrian Studios in Lenswood South Australia.
The lads ramble around lashing out tunes, having the Craic and writing songs inspired many a lost weekend in a sheebeen or two…
Put on yer dancing clogs and catch the Shambos..or they’ll come and get yeh!!
