180g Vinyl Reissue of 1988 Masterpiece! Cut from Original Flat Analog Masters!

In his opening essay for the reissue of The Pogues’ acclaimed 1984 debut album RED ROSES FOR ME, filmmaker Jim Jarmusch calls them, “definitely one of the most soulful rock bands Britain has ever produced,” adding, “But The Pogues aren’t just a punk band, or a soul group, or an “Irish” band rooted in a folk tradition. They’re all those things and a hell of a lot more.” Formed in 1982 in King’s Cross in north London, they started out called Pogue Mahone, an anglification of a Gaelic phrase meaning “kiss my arse.”

Fronted by the poetic spirit and raging, often besotted stage antics of lead singer-songwriter Shane MacGowan, the band made unforgettable music that terms such as “celtic punk” or “trad-fusion” or “progressive folk” indeed only begin to describe. Rhino explores their extraordinary body of work with 180g Vinyl versions of their five original albums before MacGowan's departure.

If I Should Fall from Grace with God is the third album by Irish folk-punk band The Pogues, released on January 18, 1988. Released in the wake of their biggest hit single, "Fairytale of New York," If I Should Fall from Grace with God also became the band's best-selling album, peaking at number 3 in the UK Album Charts and reaching the top ten in several other countries. As The Pogues were not signed to a record label at the time (their previous label Stiff having gone into administration), the album was released on their own Pogue Mahone label and distributed by Warner Music Group in the UK and Europe. In North America the record was released on Island Records and had a different cover.

If I Should Fall from Grace with God, The Pogues' 1988 masterpiece, was produced by GRAMMY® winner Steve Lillywhite and marked their Billboard album chart debut. The album features the standouts “The Broad Majestic Shannon,” “Fairytale Of New York” (a duet with Kirsty MacColl), “Bottle Of Smoke,” and the politicized “Birmingham Six.”

"The Pogues sound tighter and more precise than ever, while still summoning up the glorious howling fury that made Rum Sodomy & the Lash so powerful...Brilliantly mixing passion, street smarts, and musical ambition, If I Should Fall from Grace with God is the best album the Pogues would ever make." -Mark Deming,
