Formed in 1982 in King's Cross in North London, The Pogues started out calling themselves 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.
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", "Bottle of Smoke", the politicized "Birmingham Six", and the amazing duet with Kirsty MacColl "Fairytale of New York".
