The Electrics – Livin’ it Up When I Die – 1998

The 5th album from The Electrics turns it up a bit. Their eclectic mix of Rock and Celtic sound is just what the doctor ordered in 1998 and at this point the band had perfected their sound. It was refreshing to find a sound like the Pogues with a far more positive message. Guest stars on the album include Big Country’s Stuart Adamson playing guitar to “Rolling Home”, and Phil Keaggy playing guitar on “Face”, a rather rock song that doesn’t really fit with the album but is a great tune.
