Anyone here heard of the Pogues? I just started to re-listen....

to their stuff recently and they are brilliant!

My faves are "A Pair of Brown Eyes", "Sally McLennane", "Broad Majestic Shannon", "Bottle of Smoke", "Misty Morning, Albert Bridge", "Dirty Old Town", and of course "Fairytale of New York" with Kirsty McColl.

I have also seen them support U2 twice back in 1987 during the Joshua Tree tour as well as on their own numerous times in London, Glasgow and Edinburgh.

When the Pogues were around from 1986 to 1992, they were absolutely amazing live, sometimes on a par with the best of U2 shows that I have seen!

So Im wondering if any interferencers here who had heard any of the Pogues and/or have seen them live....tell me what they thought of them.....

You're kidding right? Asking if anyone heard of the Pogues? Are you trying to make me feel real old or something

Of course I've heard of the Pogues, seen them many times. Shane MacGowan is pretty cool.

the only mystery greater then how it's possible that Shane McGowan is still alive is the mystery of how he managed to write some of the greatest songs ever

Shake it, shake it, shake it

Fairytale of New York is one of the greatest songs ever!

I love The Pogues. Nothing beats that raspy MacGowan voice.

I'm a huge Pouges fan. Shane is my hero. I think the most important Pouges album to get is "If I Should Fall From Grace..." I have it on vinyl personally. If you really love Shane also check out the newest Dropkick Murphey's album, he sings a few songs on that, but he is so drunk you can hardly understand him. Why/ Cuz he's the man!

Keepin it krunk...
