The Pogues

The Pogues are a folk/rock band from Ireland and England, formed in London in the early 80s. They blend traditional Irish, Anglo-Saxon and Celtic music, folk, rock, punk and indie for a unique sound that is truly that of the Pogues and the Pogues alone.

The Pogues are a folk/rock band from Ireland and England, formed in London in the early 80s. They blend traditional Irish, Anglo-Saxon and Celtic music, folk, rock, punk and indie for a unique sound that is truly that of the Pogues and the Pogues alone. Though they have been through numerous lineup changes, their most renowned period was in the late 80s and was built upon the superlative lyricism of Shane MacGowan, a musical legend among the grandest. Combining his old soul with political activism and a penchant for self-destruction, MacGowan was not only a magnetic force for those who wagered on his impending ruination, but was also a peerless poet and storyteller. The albums released at their peak include 1985's Rum, Sodomy and the Lash and 1988's If I Should Fall From Grace With God. They have a long history of releases post-MacGowan, but was this brief period which brings them the most renown and adoration. « hide
