About this album

Peace and Love is a 1989 album by The Pogues, their fourth full-length studio production.

The album continued the band’s gradual departure from traditional Irish music. It noticeably opens with a heavily jazz-influenced track. Also, several of the songs are inspired by the city in which the Pogues were founded, London (“White City”, “Misty Morning, Albert Bridge”, “London You’re a Lady”), as opposed to Ireland, from which they had usually drawn inspiration. Nevertheless, several notable Irish personages are mentioned, including Ned of the Hill, Christy Brown, whose book Down All The Days appears as a song title, and Napper Tandy, mentioned in the first line of “Boat Train”, and was adapted from a line in the Irish rebel song “The Wearing of the Green”. Likewise the MacGowan song “Cotton Fields” draws on the Lead Belly song of the same name.
