Fifteen years since they first topped the Irish charts, The Saw Doctors remain one of this country’s most successful bands. So why do so many people still consider them a novelty act?
2006-04-05 - Interview
At least The Saw Doctors never let you down. You always get what you’d expect: good old slap-yourself-on-the-knee pub songs! Toning things down ever so slightly, ‘If Only’ marks a slight return to the subtler, less raucous folk rock of 1996’s Same Old Town. Though it retains the vibrancy of the past, it also marks a more mature Saw Doctors outlook of regret and nostalgia. Excellent b-side ‘Going Home’ builds on such wistfulness, adding to the group’s well of immigrant songs, and is worth the prize of the single alone.

Ireland has changed utterly since the Saw Doctors first enthralled us with their hick schtick, doing for rural Ireland what rap acts did for Compton, but now they’re back with their sixth studio album and sounding as vibrant and celebratory of all things real and Irish as ever.
