Lord Liftin' Jaysus, we's outta rum, but don't you be worryin none, me darling man! I knowed we was going ta be short so I brought anudder bottle wid me for I find's meself turrible wid me stomach dese days! ...actually, had a bit too much Merlot tonight (cue Giamatti's classic "I am NOT drinking any f*%^ing Merlot" line from Sideways), so the timing is perfect to post this glass-raising, pub-blazing, Irish drinking mix from yonder kinsman Makke. Top o' the morning to him. Sure, Guiness or Jameson's or a coffee of the spiked, Isles variety might have been more appropriate, but the point is, this mix goes where no mix has gone before, tantalizingly exploring the tender nether regions of the concept of "Irish Pub Game Arrangements" like never before. This is uncharted territory folks... the undiscovered country. I'm actually half Welsh, so I can lay vague, impartial claim to the type of inebriated Celtic roots that yield such lovelies as this wee gem from Marcus, who also can now at least claim honorary Irish heritage as well, if in actuality he hath none. Remember the scenes in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, where Peregrine Tookthingy and Whatshisname got up on the table and sang something about a green dragon? Something like that, with a narrative closer in spirit to The Devil went Down to Georgia, perhaps, and you'll begin to get the picture. Instrumentation is perfect, vocals authentic (puts Pitt's accent attempts to shame), and there's even a "yaaa-naaaann-nanannanana" section, PERFECT for those so far lost to their drink that they can't be bothered to form actual words, much less remember lyrics. This is actually some rather awesome stuff, extraordinarily creative and original, and if it's mixed a little hectic it's all the better for it, giving the feeling of a closed in, rambunctious pub bustling with lively townsfolk and copious amounts of ale. I've never played Artura, and I probably never will, but I love this mix, generally like Ben Daglish's work, and absolutely dig what Makke's done with it. This melody was calling out... it WANTED to be found + hey-diddled with until it ended up a grand buddy/brewsky refrain, on a parallel with Jimmy Buffet's immortal "Why don't we get drunk and screw", and usable in an even wider variety of family-friendly contexts, no less. Makke should be proud that he did the finding, and also that he's built up a library of extremely quirky but musically competent and intelligent mixes in a variety of styles, of which this is no exception. Excellent stuff - no matter how remotely far you are from having any Irish in you whatsoever, you can't be hatin' on the Dublin Delight. Dye the river green and don yer clovers, this one's bustin' out, Lucky Charms-style.

The night was cold and bitter. He was looking for an inn
When the Devil shined before him showing off an awful grin.
The demon spake, "You're frozen", and he nodded to the beast.
"A fee so small," the Dark One said, "can make your life a feast."
"Come within these walls of mine before the frost thee bite.
Grab yourself a bottle of wine and drink it with delight.
Come within these walls of mine before the frost thee bite.
At me table you will dine; get yourself another pint."
Well, the young man said, "Don't bother: soon I'll find an inn,
Because your home and castle is built on wicked sin."
The Devil looked offended as the offer was denied,
But still he opened up the door, inviting him inside:
The demon kept on preaching: "I can make you whole;
And all I ask of you, good sir, is your immortal soul."
The Dark One asked, "Are you not tempted?" He said "Not the least!"
For little did the Devil know the man talking was a priest.
