Summary

The debut album from The Pogues, featuring the singles Dark Streets of London and Boys From The County Hell.

What’s the hook?

Combining the spirit of Punk with traditional Irish Folk music, The Pogues were one of the most radical bands of the 1980’s. Their instantly recognizable and politically tinged music helped them achieve 5 consecutive top 20 albums in the UK as well as producing the hit single ‘Fairytale of New York’ which is widely regarded as the greatest Christmas song of all time.

The Pogues — vocalist Shane MacGowan, Spider Stacy on tin whistle, accordion player James Fearnley, Jeremy “Jem” Finer on banjo, drummer Andrew David Ranken, and bassist Cait O’Riordan — made their debut in 1984 with Red Roses For Me. The album’s 13 songs established the band’s unique sound as it mixed MacGowan originals — “Transmetropolitan” and “Dark Streets Of London” — with traditional Irish tunes — “The Auld Triangle” and “Poor Paddy.” The expanded edition’s six bonus tracks include “Whiskey You’re The Devil,” “Muirshin Duirkin’” and a foot-stomping version of the traditional Irish song “Wild Rover.”
