    The Pogues were a band of mixed Irish and English background with a folk/punk mix of music. Shane McGowan the singer is probably better known for his drunken antics and very bad teeth than anything else.


    Discography:

    Red Roses for Me (1984)
    Rum Sodomy & the Lash (1985)
    If I Should Fall from Grace with God (1988)
    Peace and Love (1989)
    Hell's Ditch (1990)
    Waiting for Herb (1993)
    Pogue Mahone (1996)

    This song reminds me of a fantastic night out at an Irish dance hall in Camden Town, London a couple of years ago.






    My sister is called Aisling. Shane sounds a bit under the weather singing "Aisling" :heheh:

    The Pogues are awesome. They were the first band to create "Celtic Punk" which would influence many other great celtic punk bands such as Flogging Molly and Dropkick Murphys.

    Re: The Pogues

    That's one of my favorite Christmas songs. :grinthumb


    I am quite a fan of the The Pogues. They considerably predate the flagships of Celtic rock, Flogging Molly and The Dropkicks Murphys, and I enjoy much of their work more than both of those bands. :D

    A fave of mine from them...

    I've seen the Dubliners rehearse a couple of years ago - always liked them :D

    Gotta love the Pogues too.

    My favorite Pogues' song will always be this one:



    A damning indictment of war if there ever was one.
