Bootyard Bandits Stir up a Storm With “One Hell of a Night”

Alestorm’s Christopher Bowes joins cowboy rockers Bootyard Bandits to stir up a storm with new party anthem “One Hell of a Night”

Bootyard Bandits have released a brand new single “One Hell of a Night”, a triumphant ode to all of their favourite beverages. Teaming up with their drinking buddy Christopher Bowes (Alestorm) as special guest on vocals, this party anthem is sure to get the hoedown happening! The guys toured with Alestorm across Europe earlier this year and enjoyed many a tipple whilst on the road, so it was only natural to join forces for this rockin’ party starter.

The release is accompanied by a quirky fan-made video (credit: Alex Papeleu), depicting a typical night on the town with Bootyard Bandits.

Drummer Bamm-Bamm had this to say:

“‘One Hell Of A Night’ is purely and simply a song all about alcohol! We feel so strongly about the important message behind this song, that we sought professional assistance to help tell the story. We left the ranch and went on a coastal cowboy quest in search of the one guy who would truly do justice to a song all about drinking… Captain Christopher Bowes from Alestorm.

So, ladies and gentlefolk, cowboys and cowgirls, pirates and wenches alike, we give you the most doggone distinctive duet y’all ever hear in your whole damn life with our alcohol infused anthem! Just y’all TRY and not dance to this!”

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
