Album number three by THE MIGHTY STEF contains nine new songs of sin and redemption where hope and hopelessness walk hand in hand down the wet streets of Manhattans Lower East Side to the dingy graveyards of Berlin where the record was conceived, written and recorded.
Stef travelled to Berlin to form the gothic-folk-rock congregation known as The Baptists, comprised of the members of Humanzi, before undertaking and executing this record. While drinking heavily in the bars of the city and romanticising about the potential of the project, The Baptists solidified a plan, did some days of rehearsing and embarked on an extreme recording stint with German punk rock legend Tom Schwoll.
'The Baptist Record' is one of The Mighty Stef's most ambitious projects. It also documents an exciting period in the song-writing of Stefan Murphy who on this, his third full length album, shares some of the writing credits with his fellow Baptists.
The Mighty Stef, was born in Dublin and raised on a tradition of songs and stories from the darkside of life. This irish troubador and his men explore the landscape of Rock N' Roll in all its upbeat fiery-fury and in all its dream-like glory. TMS AND THE BAPTISTS is his third stop on the journey to that sacred sound. It is a record to be reckoned with no matter who you are or what your tastes may be.
