The Stanfields rip it up 

The Celtic rock group releases its debut album and goes for messy show gold.

They won Best Local Band, Most Likely to Make it Big and Best Band to Get Trashed To in this year's Best of Music, and Saturday sees Celtic rock band The Stanfields playing Halifax for the first time since January. "It's gonna be bonkers, I guarantee that," says vocalist and guitarist Jon Landry over the phone. "We're really, really excited to get in a packed, sweaty room with our friends in our hometown." Landry says he and fellow bandmates Jason MacIsaac, Jason Wright, Craig Harris and Mark Murphy have been nonstop since the ECMAs earlier this year, but not without leaving enough time to finish producing The Stanfields' debut album, Vanguard of the Young & Reckless and shoot a video for "Dirtiest Drunk in the History of Liquor." Asked half-jokingly why his song titles are so long, Landry answers: "I'm not a wham, bam, thank you ma'am kind of writer. It's the last thing on my mind." What is on his mind is one hell of a party Saturday, so raise your pint glass to the boys before sloshing your way around the dance floor.

  • No amount of money is worth the environmental damage
  • Let’s invest in renewable energies instead
  • Depends how much cash I, personally, will receive
