The Real Mckenzies Biography

The Real McKenzies have been bringing out their hybrid of aggressive punk and traditional Scottish folk songs since their formation in 1992. After several lineup changes, this Vancouver-based sextet eventually settled with Paul McKenzie (vocals), the Bone (guitar/vocals), Kurt "Dirty" Robertson (guitar), Matt MacNasty (bagpipes), Brad Attitude (drums), and Jamie Fawkes (bass). By 1995, IFA Records released the band's first full-length, appropriately titled Scotland. After the band spent four years touring throughout North America, Joey "Shithead" Keithley's Sudden Death Records eventually funded the release of the Real McKenzies' second album, Clash of the Tartans, in 1999. Loch'd & Loaded appeared two years later on Fat Wreck. The live album Pissed Tae th' Gills: A Drunken Live Tribute to Robbie Burns was issued in 2002, followed the next year by Oot & Aboot on Honest Don's Hardly. The band returned to Fat Wreck for 2005's 10,000 Shots. ~ Mike DaRonco, All Music Guide
