  • Tylin'!!Shane is a legend. who else could do a gig whilst his liver was pickling in whiskey, could only remain upright with the aid of his mic stand and had to pop backstage in between song to ''freshen up'' ....... True Pogues Mahones
  • V i think it sucks. fucking spammer.
  • much love to SHANE M
  • much love to SHANE
  • Habe vor ein paar Wochen Shane mit den Pogues in Münster gesehen. Es war großartig.
  • If you'r fans of Shane MacGowan and the Pogues, you should really check out Greenland Whalefishers. They have a very similar sound and a singer sounding much like the young Shane MacGowan. I discovered them about two moths ago, and it's like finding 6 "forgotten" Pogues albums. Here's Greenland Whalefishers LastFm page: http://www.last.fm/music/Greenland+Whalefishers Cheers!

  • I love the Crock of Gold album! The Snake too though... both pure masterpieces! Shane sounds great, and his way of expressing himself has always been great. Pure genius! By the way, why does "That Woman's Got Me Drinking Again" hundreds of more plays than the other songs? Because Johnny Depp played guitar on it?
  • Why "Crock of Gold" is not seen as a great album is a mystery to me. St. John of Gods is one of Shane's best songs ever. An absolute classic, imbued with a confident sense of Irish popular music and a mode of address to the listener which exudes an intelligent understanding of the place of music and performance in the social. A masterpiece.
