Listened today as a presenter on my favourite daily radio show in London,Robert Elms broke down as he told us this morning of Joe's death.Christ it was hard driving round London all day while people were wishing you Merry Christmas when all day my eyes were filled with tears. He was one of us,one of the true greats,a former of opinion,and an attitude that shaped music everywhere including Shane and his idiology. Please forgive my ramblings tonight fellow guestbook readers this is a truely sad night for me. The DJ today told a great story of way back when he was 18 at a Clash gig in Brighton,He and his mates were a long way from home when the gig had finished and had no way home,The police were patrolling the area after the gig and were all ready to arrest the youngsters when Joe and the band emerged from the venue and said they were with them and brought them back to their hotel,typical of Joe. Remeber on the Town and Country video on St. Patricks night way back Joe says I've been in bed ill all week but how can you stay in bed when the Pogues are in town!! A great loss Joe Strummer

JOE STRUMMER DEAD Joe Strummer, the leader of legendary Seventies punk band The Clash, has died, aged 50. A spokesman for Strummer, real name John Mellor, confirmed to BBC News Online that the singer died at home on Sunday. Friend and Clash video director Don Letts said Strummer had died of a heart attack, but an autopsy is to be performed to confirm the cause of death. In the last few years Strummer forged another successful career with his band The Mescaleros, touring around the world and releasing two albums - Rock Art And The X Ray Style in 1999, and 2001's Global A Go-Go. He also played with The Pogues and featured in several films, including Alex Cox's Walker and Straight To Hell, and Jim Jarmusch's 1989 Mystery Train. He leaves a wife and children. Strummer's website reads: "Our condolences to Luce and the kids, family and friends." http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/music/2600669.stm

Just got back from this great weekend. Did anyone mention that Shane sang a German Xmas song when he came on stage in Zaandam? And he didn't miss a line of the song he was singing when that drunken guy pulled him to the floor, quite amazing! He was in a good mood on both evenings, talked a lot between the songs and recited poetry. All in all I think these 2 gigs were better than those in Utrecht and Lierop, well at least better than the Utrecht gig. Dublin Town didn't sound like a traditional, anyway it was a good song! And thanks to all German, Dutch, and Irish Shane-fans who made this a memorable weekend! You were great, folks!!!

The setlist of Friday: If I Should Fall - Donegal Express - Rock N Roll Paddy - Back In The County Hell - Old Triangle - Mother Mo Chroi - Dirty Old Town - Popes Instrumental - Body Of An American - Greenland Whale Fisheries - Public Enemy No.1 - Granuaille - More Pricks Than Kicks - Dublin Town - Streams Of Whiskey - Poor Paddy - Sick Bed of Cuchulainn - Irish Rover /// Broad Majestic Shannon - Bottle Of Smoke - Sally MacLenanne. The Show started at 0.15 h and ended 1.45 h. Approx 600 (?) spectators. Shane seemed to be in a good mood, making lots of jokes, but having the zipper of his trouser open! ;o) After the instrumental he came back without shoes and had to sit on a chair. Mr.Dowling should exercise the songs; he made more misstakes than Shane...

Hiya John C of the Spider shirt! Re other ex-Pogues: Andrew Ranken is credited with the music for "The Lieutenant of Inishmore" by Martin McDonagh, a very black and very funny play about the INLA and cats, which I saw recently. Andrew arranged "The Patriot Game" by Dominic Behan, which sort of set the tone of the play, and contributed some incidental music. Not much, but Pogues-ish sounding, played by Andrew, Phil, Jem with Kerry Condon vocals and Stephen Warbeck accordion/ piano. And yes, very sorry to see Phil being harassed by asinine bigots.

I think that if there's one thing we've learned from what happened september the 11th last year is that we all, worldwide, never may bow for an act of massive negative oppression from a small minority or even single person. The victims are always those who didn't ask for it. So I do respect your decision but I sincerly hope you'll be back with us in the near future on some occasions here. I can't tell you how much your inside information means to me, to hear it all first hand here. And so do many others. Have a wonderful Christmas!

While we are waiting an official Pogues live album, unfortunately I have to say that live bootleg "Streams of Whiskey" (2002) is much better than Shane's official live album "Across the Broad Atlantic". As admirer of the Pogues primary I have music performance on my mind. Probably we'll not agree.

Good to see Phil taking part in the discussions, this shaping up to be one of the best Shane/Pogues pages around. As for people being dissapointed in Phil Chevron, well i think the time for being dissapointed in Phil has passed, and it was around the time of Peace and love and called Blue Heaven, though i here Daryl played his role, always thought that one would have made millions for Disney. Good news about the projects for next year, and while iam here for any fans around Glasgow Shane plays at this years Celtic Connetions, the promotion has been hard to come by, and last year produced a small turn out for a great show, Its on the 17th of Janruary at the Old Fruitmarket (though i here the venue might be shcanged due to structural damage), take care, Mick.

You still have all the music, and that is yours, and the majorities of our relationship with Phillip. Agree with his lifestyle or not, his music on your albums has not changed, so what is to be dissapointed at? You have dissapointed me, as well as many others!

"Before he recorded the vocal on "Fairytale", he asked me if I had a problem with the word "faggot", which I think is quite sweet! Love to all XXXX" ....Phillip Chevron's first post to this Board! I have not had an oppurtunity to read the message board recently, but was suprised that a few seemed to be shocked that Phillip was a Gay man. I did not know he was gay before he posted on this message board, but thought he made it qiute clear that he was on his very first post. Does anyone retain anything they read? And if they do not, do they have to wonder in amazement on posts that ....Gasp.. one of the Pogues is GAY!?!?! Anyway, i think it is silly in this modern day and age that the fact that someone is gay is still a shock to some.

As most of you might have noticed Shane's official website www.shanemacgowan.com is having problems for some time. Laurence who did a brilliant job for many years does not have the time for running the site anymore. Michael has currently no proper access to the site so he is simply unable to update it. As for myself, I do not have the knowledge to do it and, being honest with you, I do not want to get involved anymore as much as I have been. We are in the middle of solving the problems.

Well, you've been busy!Aleksandar, I last saw Ann Scanlon at Kirsty's funeral and I don't have a contact for her. Maybe Steve Kovar can help, as he has printed "The Lost Decade" on his homepage (skovar1@aol.com)? If you contact Ann, please send her my love. Robert, I probably would have told you the Derry story (which is all true) except MR has given away the punchline, so I can't!!! Honestly, so much of that 10 years was so funny, I couldn't even begin to tell stories - even if I could remember half of them. Father Emmett? If you come across Shorty Ryan or Father Ryan in one of Shane's songs, that's me! Shane had "alternative" personalities for each of us but, as with so much in Mac's life, they had very little to do with reality! He invented characters he would like us to be, I think. If any of us did the amount of "shagging" that our characters did, I would have no energy left to write this!!! Pogues did do an early version of "Donegal Express", I think, but Mac wrote it alone. The Ramones only ever supported us (or shared a festival bill with us) two or three times, I believe. But if they were an influence on us, I think that goes back to 1976, with The Radiators and The Nips etc. Other famous people who opened for us include Dr. Feelgood and Chuck Berry! Kirk, Falconer was the name of the London studio in which we recorded the demos. Don't think I'll be going to Japan anytime soon - shame! Finally Tommy, "The Leaving Of Liverpool" and "The Wild Rover" are both part of the re-issue progamme for next year. They are extra tracks on the "Red Roses For Me" CD, I think, but I don't have my notes to hand and anyway, the structure of the reissues may still change. But they will defintely come out sometime. Though I do not argue with your opinion of "Birmingham Six", I do disagree: the musical structure tries to deliberately make the contrast between the anger at the situation (verses) and the poignancy of the guys' long, long wait in prison (chorus). Okay, Nurse, take me home! Love to all XXXXX

Hi Phil, it was often mentioned that on the records after "If I Should Fall..." the Irish folk influences became less and it changed a bit into much more rock´n roll stuff (I mean as a a type of musical style), Shane sometimes said he didn´t like the stuff on "Peace" and "Ditch" (even though he said something different when I asked him this year). But I think there are really great numbers like "Sayonara", "Lorelei", "London´s a lady" and stuff. For numbers like "White City" I always heard a bit of a kind of ramones-ey touch. Was it because you were so often on a bill with them at the time? Who did invent the rock´n roll styles n skills on "Peace & Love"? cheers, Sebastian

When Terry, Ronnie and Barney got put in the cell for the nite, "Sing The Auld TriAngle now you Bollock" Shane told me this story a few years ago in Blooms in Dublin........quite funny......to you care to share.....MR

I too would like to express my thanks to Juergen for letting us chat in this manner. Roxy John: One of the most difficult and enjoyable things I ever did was produce a couple of records by The Atrix! John Borrowman was an infuriating bloody man, but you couldn't help loving him all the same. He was like an excited little boy all the time - life delighted him. You're right, he has faded from public memory very quickly and he deserves better than that. As to singers, I am very flattered to be considered in the same breath as Shane. But the truth is, The Pogues were very fortunate to have so many good singers. Shane always thought that made us a bit like The Band. He and I both regretted that we didn't exploit the vocal talent in the group a bit more. Bye for now. Love XXXX

If an artist needs publicity for his/her album on other people's expenses he/she should start thinking about his/her career and life in general. If Sinead really feels the need to "rescue" someone she should go and join "GROW". This organisation always needs helping hands and money.

But anyway, all of us have been using our creative energies in different ways for the past few years.

Sepp, the movie was defintely shown on German TV about 10 years ago - with a dubbed soundtrack from German actors!!! - because I have a copy! If you REALLY want to see it, I think the DVD is your only hope, though FilmFour in the UK sometimes shows it (in English!). Dirk, negotiations for the tour were still going on up to three weeks ago, but one member of the Pogues could not agree about the money. And no, I'm not going to tell you which one he is, sorry!!!

Hi all love the site Juergen. I was at The Pogues reunion gigs last December and the mp3's are a great memory of the gig, not that I needed anything extra to remind me. I think the guys should get back together again and record. Even after all the time they have spent apart since 91 they all gelled so well together on stage it was a lifetime's dream to see all my heroes on stage. Thanks Phil for the memories. Is there any chance the fans might get the opportunity to get Poguevision re-released on DVD I've got the VHS version and a recorded VHS of Completely Pogued and Live @ the Town and Country, but would dearly love to get them on DVD. Maybe it's something to think about. I would class myself as a huge fan I've all CD's and cassettes that I collected as I grew up. Can't wait for the next time you do a gig. Thanks for being the greatest band ever.

Hi Alex. The album from Brixton sounds really great, and was supposed to be released about now. But there didn't seem much point when we cancelled the Christmas Tour. If/when we get together again, it'll come out then. Meanwhile, myself, James and Darryl are working on remastering the original albums (the early ones had not been looked at since the primitive, early days of Digital) with some bonus tracks and background sleeve notes. These are likely to originate in the USA, where only the final "Pogue Mahone" album is currently in print. The bonus tracks will be the related "b" sides etc, on CD for the first time (officially!). Another project is the Pogues Treasure Chest (working title) which has the real deal for collectors and hardcore fans, as it will have unreleased stuff, demos and outtakes. This is a monumental job and we don't know yet if it'll be a box set or 2CD or what. Anyway, that will probably see the light sometime in 2004. It'll prove that we really DID record some of the supposedly apocryphal stuff that sometimes gets talked about on sites like this!!

hi philip, as you're the best source to ask, could you tell us what's going to happen with the Pogues in next time, you said there might be an album out next year with archive stuff. So the Live-Album, which has been recorded last christmas won't be released in near future? The Bootlegs of these shows are a nice remembrance, but a real album would top that easily.

"I hope there's no Mexicans or niggers out there." IS THIS FICTION, FOR FUCKS SAKE? I never said he was a racist, I simply was making the point that he often says racist things," YES IT IS Fiction! Acting! Playing a role! I was SHOCKED at the fuss made over MacGowan's comment in US reviews. Sadly, it is commonly believed in the UK that Americans have no sense of irony. Any American who took offence at that comment compounds their own stereotype in the UK, exactly the one Shane was making fun off with his comment. He gave people the bait and the fools took it. Comments cannot be inherently racist. It depends on the intention of the maker. HOw you choose to interpret somebody elses words often says more about you than them. BTW Anyone remember the 'Irish are the niggers of Europes' line in the roddy doyle film? otherwise i agree.

Hello people. I just caught the tail-end of the debate. Some interesting comments. Does anyone REALLY believe Mac to be a racist?! I'm shocked! The world is full of people who believe they are not racist simply because they use the "politically correct" words for different ethnic groups. As if language alone gave them an easy conscience! Language can be the enemy of understanding or it can be its ally. The irony is that the "p.c." brigade impose their own intolerance on the language itself. I believe Mac's work just throws that shit back in their face. He is, after all, the man who reclaimed the word "Paddy", among others. Before he recorded the vocal on "Fairytale", he asked me if I had a problem with the word "faggot", which I think is quite sweet! Love to all XXXX

Shane MacGowan sure has a funny way of saying howdy. "Hello San Francisco," he greeted the not-quite-sold-out La Zona Rosa crowd. "I hope there's no Mexicans or niggers out there." http://www.shanemacgowan.com/articles/austin00.shtml IS THIS FICTION, FOR FUCKS SAKE? I never said he was a racist, I simply was making the point that he often says racist things, and why is everyone fussing over it. As far as the author of those books is concerned, who cares, why bring him up. In my opinion that guy probably would be a killer if he did not have those books as an outlet. How else could you think up the things he writes if he did not have some kind of inclination however small to do those things. The moral of this story is that no one but Shane knows for sure if he is a racist, but Shane certainly makes a few comments supporting both sides of the disscusion. I just do not see why everyone is up in arms about it.

Yes but surely more than just being "racist"in the stereotypical sense Shane is aware of the racism the celtic catholic/Irish have suffered at the hands of the English?. If Shane is such a racist why did he state that he wept when Jimi Hendrix died,Jimi was man he greatly admired.Also why does he number Billie Holiday,John Colltrane,Sam Cooke,and the Irish half Brazilian black Phili Lynott among his greatest influences?. Yes your right that Shane doesn't have any time for politically correct crap but also I get the feeling Shane is deeply humanitarian. But let's face it Shane is a man who likes to shock,or bemuse any way he's able to. Check the song lyrics to "sick bed of...." Shane calls every so called minority by a sort of slang name,be they Jocks,Blacks,paks or Jews.Don't forget though,our hero sings a song of liberty for them. Who knows what Shane really feels?,Shane isn't stupid even if alcohol mostly does the talking for him. Just consider hthat in the his book"a drink with...."when talking about is deeply held catholic faith,the saint he identifies most with was the saint Martin De Porres the mixed raced half black saint. Shane like most of us is prone to contradiction.

I do not know what all the fuss is about. Shane has many songs with racist remarks all through them. Many of you will say he is just saying them in character, but then why is he singing about those characters? The song Truck Drivin man is probably one of the most racist songs ever recorded, and it does not seem he is trying to put down that type of behaviour. I geuss what I am trying to say is why is everyone acting like it is some great surprise? Also why is it that people who come to this geustbook expect everything to be Politically Correct when it is based on the single most un-Politically Correct man in the world. Personally i do not care one way or the other what is said, I am just surprised how many of Shanes fans do.

The new record is near completion with mixing to begin soon. The tentative release date is six months with the album being a similar format as "The Snake" and "The Crock Of Gold": i.e: rockers and ballads; originals and trads. He's proud of it. Popes are too. And the Popes are fine -- now a four piece, bringing on accordion, whistle, fiddle, as needed. The original guys, still tight. Issues, yes, but the band is still tight. Paul's still the front man.

I think there's no good reason why the shouldn't release the Live Album. (Because of Shane is no reason), if they don't play live this xmas it would be a good thing to have the live-album. It'd have been a chartbreaker! On pogues.com you can read for almost a year now that the album will be out at the end of this year and not to buy Streams of whiskey...

Good website. Sorry there definitely won't be any Pogues Christmas Shows this year - no one enjoyed last year's dates more than me! - but we're hoping to start releasing some of our archive stuff next year. Including, yes, some of the "Hell's Ditch" demos and outtakes. It'll take a while to get everything sorted, but myself, James and Darryl have put ourselves in charge so with any luck it'll start to trickle out. Mind yourselves. Love Philip XX

i have to agree with you kirk ,when i heard shane had split with the pogues all those years ago i was heart broke at the thought of not seeing shane play with the pogues again,then we got the reunion at xmas last year which was fantastic as we all thought that those days were long gone,the excitment that i felt far out did anything that i felt when i saw them all play together during the 80s this is mainly due to the fact that we all thought that shane macgowan and the pogues were dead and buried but no we all got one last chance to relive the excitement so let not milk things, lets just enjoy what we have had ,and appreciate what we are going to get because lets face it fans we really dont know when it all might come to an end,i am sure that if shane was not enjoying what he is doing now he would throw the lot away and kill him self compleatly with drink ,as it is at the moment i think that we are all keeping him alive with the support that he gets off fans like ourselves "long live the king"

Although I do thank the Popes for keeping the music alive for the last 10 years, basically it has been 2 new cds and a lot of Pogues covers at shows.. even when shane isn't present, they do Pogues covers.. I feel they should play their own stuff which is very good as well.. as far as the Pogues reunion gigs, the ones last year were amazing and took me back to the 8ts when at the height of his career nobody could touch Macgowans writing with a 10 foot barge pole.. keep on keeping on Kirk

Hello Well he doesn't get on the them....that is the first problem. He seemed fairly adament that they would be no reunions at xmas when i saw him last...but yes i thought the money would be too nice to turn down. We still live in hope though. Shane seems to enjoy the Popes gigs more than the pogues gigs.....in fairness i think the atmosphere at the popes (when they were in full with accordion etc) was more crack than the reunited pogues was......you get alot of people jumping on the band wagon for the pogues gigs. Finally lets thank the popes for keeping the Pogues\MacGowan music alive and kicking over the last 10 years. Cheers.

I hear that Shane is not cooperating with the rest of the band to play more reunion shows. I guess Shane would rather tour with The Popes instead and not make nearly half the money he would make with The Pogues. There's no question that Shane is always looking to make money somehow which doesn't make sense why he would turn down the Pogues. I think that Shane likes to be in control of everything and he can't be that way with the Pogues. But he can pretty much boss around the Popes all he wants.

No prices, one hint; it will not be "Irene"- sorry mrs. Volz & cockney! That will put me to another goal in my life: the litle fella on a picture with Grandmaster Mac!

Dear friends! I've been maintaining a site kind of tribute to mr.Shane MacGowan (http://geocities.com/eoghainmacrua/shane_page) and intend to start a new section there. Its work name is "HOW I CAME TO LOVE THEM". As you could guess it will be a series of stories, kind of fans' memoirs, essays on one's first Pogues/Popes song, first Pogues/Popes gig, on one's discovery of Pogues/Popes world, etc. If my idea awakes your interest send you essays (in English please!) to macrua@fyezall.zzn.com or eoghainmacrua@yahoo.com I won't be able to perform it without your help and will appriciate any contribution !!! Apply for information to e-mail or ICQ# 128052706 (Mon-Fri) Thanks !!!

A CHRISTMAS PRESENT: SHANE´S NEW ALBUM ! Well, lets start with the excellent news that Tommy is in fine form and will join the band for the upcoming Irish tour. On the other side of the coin though we have Shane on crutches due to a broken hip and ankle, however he is going to do all the Irish dates, Although the doctor says he should be seated for the shows, now I don't know about you, but I get a picture of Val Doonican in my mind. Now that Tommy is fit this means that work can start again on Shane's new album as well as the bands new solo album. The new Shane album is expected to be released before Xmas with the bands solo album due in the new year. There is also a bit of sad news, Mick has now left the band and the guys have decided to remain a four piece from now on. However they will draft in Whistle players, accordionists, fiddlers etc as and when required. (from official website the popes)

Just got back home and read the last entries. The Netherland gigs were great because of Shane, but The Popes are really going from bad to worse. I'm looking forward to the Reunion gigs in December! Thanks a lot dear Sean, Mieke, Rob and Marco - it was great to meet you! Rob, you're forgiven for that awful music, just don't do it again! It's very hard to choose a duet. I still like "Spancil Hill" very much, "You're The One" is also a favourite of mine and "Haunted" too.

Thanks for all the reviews, and hope that some of the people who attend the gigs in Ireland will do the same. As far as duets go, I would say that my favorite duet is "You're the one" for Shane's performance alone.Don't get me wrong I'm a big fan of the trad tunes, and he's done many with many greats goes without saying, not that this is my favorite of his songs but on this one he delivers a gruffy grit mixed with mayple syrup. The best of both worlds. I don't think the atmosphere of the gigs lends itself to the mayple syrup side, but to me it's just as strong as his *"freight train delivery" quality.(*well put by someone in an article I read). Of course Fairy Tale with Kirsty, a great song and great performance by both. The only thing I miss on the record is the atmosphere they captured on a live telecast- she was perfectly capable of delivering everything in that song, and I miss some of that on the record. Also would love to hear Shane sing in Irish. He did a duet with Alan Stivell "Tri Martold". I don't speak a word of Irish, have no idea what it means, not crazy about this version - but want to hear him sing on behalf the spirits in the ancient language.

I have already made my apologies to all people who were involved in the meeting personally. I went to Brussels airport to pick up my parents from holiday .. in the end it turned out they had a 90 minute delay. After leaving Zaventem I was stuck in a traffic in Antwerp .. I arrived at Paddy's Place at 2100 hrs and most of the people were gone. I hope you had a good time there at paddy's Place (BTW did you meer my fiancee ??) .. I was not so keen on Shane's concert yesterday; I missed Micky too much ! Next time bring James Fearnley as accordionplayer ! Again apologies for all who showed up; next time better ! Dirk

...thanks C-Paddy! Some people e-mailed me and asked about this female violinplayer the band showed up with earlier this year. Well, don't know about that but she defenitely was not there during both gigs from His Royal Shaness last two days. Last one, yesterday evening at the festival in Lierop was simular to the previous one - when it comes to the set-list (please find that in my review below). The atmosphere though was so much better. Maybe it was because a brief warm up at 'Paddy's Place in nearby Helmond (were where you Dirk?) or because it was a smallish but very well organised, fine outdoor event and the fact that He was on from 23:00hrs. Anyway, loads of fans showed up, the 'craic' was good and Shane had much more on his chest and much more to share with the audience than the previous night. Lots of laughs again and even the band seemed more into it than in Utrecht! From the band-side I really must say that it needs more musicians (accordeon, flute) than it does know. It becomes more and more a rock band in my oppinion. Don't get me wrong: I'm so happy they still play songs like Paddy On The Railway and Greenland Whale Fisheries but these for example DO need a flute to carry the heavy load. What do you think of it fans on the world wide web? In the end The Shane Man again didn't sing 'Spancill Hill" which we shouted for quit a few times, but there comes a day....This brings me to another, last question for you: what do you think is his finest moment when it comes to a duet, singalong with another artist or group? Mine is indeed his performance with Christy More ding Spancill Hill.... Grusse an Irene! Entschuldige vielmals für die schlager-hits zuruck nach hause. That was my best German and yes I'm already out of here. Hopefully see you in december for le spectacle!

hey dudes a big hello from belfast.first of all i will send greetings to my crew from utrecht.thanks mates for the great day (hey taxman whats up).honestly i got split feelings about the gig.just to say i saw him around 10 times now in the last 12 month.he was great from his voice and acting but that doesnt change the truth in my eyes that the band around him becomes worster and worster.in my eyes the songs played like that lost their spirit.than he allways since years playes the same setlist up and down.me and taxman met paul down by the greek before the show and i was asking for birmingham six for my late friend and he told us oh know dont confuse shane.im pretty sure shane wouldnt be confused they just cant play it.by the end of the day shane was in the same mode like the last couple years but again put more weight on.im really thinking just to visit the pogues reunion this december and leaving the popes for a while.

As promised, a review for those who weren't there last night. After almost a two hour delay our Main Man showed up at the Tivoli in Utrecht, Holland for an almost full house of some 400 people or so. Dressed in His nice suit, a book in his left pocket, He was slowly making His way to the front of the stage on two crutches! There was also a stool waiting for him to lean on, which He occasionally needed to sit on or lean on to every now and then. It really did seem he had some trouble with his hip. For those of you who don't know He broke His hip a few years ago. He may be a bit slower on foot but immediately it was clear to all of us - including the band- that he was in this uplifting spirit we all love Him so much for. He became his drink, a fag and stayed constantly busy with all of us in the front rows, insulting some wankers (glad he did) and made praises. The Popes lined up without the accordeon player but found a great replacement for MacAnimal on banjo. The young banjoplayer seemed to be walked out from school directly on stage and seemed to shy to watch the audience for only one moment but did a hell of a job!! But this band at least needs an accordeon player to impress lads. Shane didn't bother. He was on, and nothing and no one could stop Him. Not even when He was hit in His face while he was singing twice within 30 seconds by plastic cups who were thrown by some asshole from the back. They were empty so no humor in that. Not us, nor the band but Hé was making the jokes tonight, for example when he hit the drums with both crutches during the final instrumental tunes of ‘Body’. Big Time! If I tell you He did an attempt to sing Springsteens ‘Dancing In The Dark’ on a quiet moment that says it all, doesn’t it?!! Here's the set-list: Fall From Grace Donegal Express Rock N’ Roll Paddy Aishling The Old Triangle Mother Mo Chroi a NEW instrumental by the band - main part for the banjo Dirty Old Town Skipping Rhymes Granouille Body Of An American Rainy Night In Soho Paddy Public Enemy Paddy On The Railway Streams Of Whiskey Irish Rover ----- Broad Majestic Shannon Greenland Whale Fisheries Thanks to Irene, Sean, Marco and my girlfriend Mieke for this great day! As you may know there’s another gig from Him tonight in Holland – at a festival He is headlining in Lierop. A message and set list from that here tomorrow! For those who come over tonight: see you at Irish Pub Paddy's Place" in nearby Helmond, Steenweg 13, at 18:00 hrs. Yoy find the pub in the city centre of Helmond, close to the bridge and Pathe cinema.

The Popes with Shane really have a great sound & as a band, they are quite accomplished musicians. However, I had the dubious pleasure of hearing them minus 'our boy' in Chicago when he failed to show. They made a valiant attempt to carry on (one gets the feeling they're quite used to this!) but somehow, it wasn't the same. Kind of like some of the tunes from post 1991 Pogues after Shane was gone. Just didn't ever get off the ground...

Not the CD single version with the drawing of Shane on the front ( as I have it )but the actual slower almost spoken vocals that were heard during the tv advert. I still have a video of the 30second ad and it is a much better version than the cd single.

Hi, all! My thanks go to Alex for posting the link to my interview of Shane. Thank you also to Cockney Paddy, Eamon, and everyone else who has written me in regard to the interview. For the record, I am the biggest Pogues fan I know, and yes, I would like to interview Shane again at some point in the future (God willing.) God Bless Shane and the Boys, Michael

To all the fans who'll visit the gig of His Royal Shaness in Utrecht next month: let's have a drink (or two) at the most famous beer café in Utrecht. It's called "Café België". You can find it very close to the venue (Tivoli) in the same street: "Oude Gracht" number "196". Phone: 030-2312666, (Number of beers: 160. On draught: 20). Let's say from 16:00hrs. Slàn!!

i've just ordered tix for shane's utrecht gig and i really hope he will show up. last seen him in tilburg in april... and it was the finest show he ever did (the once i've seen so far, and there've been a lot), despite his late appearance on stage, but that's shaney-style... if anyone has the "iisffgwg"-documentary on tape contact me, also have loads of stuff to trade ("great hunger" f.i.) cheers!

Top 11 Pogues songs: Broad, Lullaby of London, White City, Rake at the Gates of Hell, IISFFGWG, Transmetropolitan, Sick Bed, Pair of Brown Eyes, Curse of Love, Bastard Landlord Top 10 Shane or Shane/Popes songs: Mama Lou, Granuaille, Aisling, Mother Mo Chroi, More Pricks, Lonesome Highway, Paddy Rolling Stone, Church, Victoria, Youre the One I didn't use any cover songs even though some of the best performances are cover songs. And plus, half of his solo stuff I listed were taken from old ballads ie: Granuaile & Mo Chroi, just reworded. I think one of the best covers the Pogues ever did was Rocky Road to Dublin, wish Shano would do that again. Maggie May was grand as well. All in all, it is difficult to pick out your Top 10, or 11 in my Pogues picks, they all are my favorite when I am in the right mood for the song.

TOMMY AND SHANE`S NEW ALBUM !!!!! 24th June 2002 First of all is the sad news that Tommy will be out of commission for about 3 months due to lingering health problems. Tommy is going to take this time to recuperate and get himself 100% fit. Tommy's place in the up and coming tour dates will be taken by Popes regular fiddle player Miriam Kavana, so don't forget to make her feel welcome! Secondly is the news that the band have a number of European dates over the summer as well as the possibility of a small Irish tour in late August, early September. The band are currently hard at work on Shane' s new album which is due for release later this year. The album is expected to have approximately 50% of traditional reworkings as well as 50% new stuff and will probably be a double album.

Here on bad english once again: I was talking about a Shane Gig in Switzerland at the Ministry of Rock Openair Festival. Shane should play at 6 in the evening, but they said he had problems at the airport or stuff like that. So he should play in a 2 hours later in an extra hall (i guess for horses cos the festival was on a horsetrack). But Irene, sadly went home because she didn't hear when Shane should be playing later. It was quite rainy later that evening, so it was really great to see Shane in this hall. It was really hot in it, i guess there were only around 200 people in it, so we had a lot of space in front. Shane came on on stage, in one hand the dring in the other the cigarette. He had a really enormous beerbelly, but he was in really good form. He played: Fall from grace, donegal, RocknRoll Paddy, Back in the county hell, Auld Triangle, !GREENLAND WHALE FISHERIES! (forgot that one in the german text), Mother MO Chroi, Instrumental, Dirty Old Town, Granuaille, Body of an American, More Pricks Than Kicks, Streams of Whiskey, Sick Bed, Poor Paddy, Irish Rover - Encore: Rainy Night, Bottle Of Smoke, Down by the salley gardens. During Salley Gardens Shane started to dance and balancing a glass on his head, but then he fell on stage and the crowd went crazy. It was a really wonderfull 1.5 hours. I was so tiered after the show from dancing and shouting as i've seldom been before. And the banjo player was not with the band, any news? There was a women playing fiddle. Fucking loud show, but brilliant (my first Shane show). Hope to see him next year here in germany, when he's hopefully promoting his third Soloalbum.

Shane sollte ja schon um 18Uhr spielen, aber es war ja vorauszusehen, dass er nicht pünktlich ist. Es hieß dann, dass so um viertel vor 8 oder nach 8 in einer extra Halle auftritt, dort hat's dann auch schonmal ned geschifft. Ich schätz mal so 200 Leute haben dort hingefunden, war also sehr überschaubar. Shane kam wie immer mit Kippe und etwas Hochprozentigem auf die Bühne. Gespielt hat er: Fall from grace, donegal, RocknRoll Paddy, Back in the county hell, Auld Triangle, Mother MO Chroi, Instrumental, Dirty Old Town, Granuaille, Body of an American, More Pricks Than Kicks, Streams of Whiskey, Sick Bed, Poor Paddy, Irish Rover - Zugabe: Rainy Night, Bottle Of Smoke, Down by the salley gardens - vielleicht hab ich auch noch was vergessen auf jeden Fall waren es fast 1 1/2 unvergessliche Stunden in der vordersten Reihe!!! Bei salley gardens hat Shane angefangen zu tanzen und sein Glas auf dem Kopf zu balancieren und dann ist er hingefallen und das Publikum hat durchgedreht. Ich war danach so fertig vom tanzen und singen wie ich selten erlebt habe!

I was at the Dublin show (flew in from Chicago) and was about thirty feet from the stage, Shane was fine. In classic Shane fashion, I couldn't make out a bloody thing he was saying between songs, including the name of the next one, but the minute the music started, he was clear as a bell. Was a hell of a show, something about seeing them in Dublin... Big audience difference between there and the States, I've seen Shane over here and the crowd was into it but restrained. The Dublin lot was totally revved up and didn't hesitate to show it. Also took my 18 yr old son, though a metal freak, really loves Shane and the Pogues. Was a true father/son bonding moment when they did "Sick Bed" (his favorite) as we both screamed every word in unison!(along with the rest of the crowd)

Something about the Pogues gig in Dublin from an Irishman with a backstage pass: "Well the gig was good, was talking with Shane for 1-2 hour or so, seemed to be in good enough shape, speech a wee bit slurred. The rest of the Pogues were in more talkative form. I was mainly talking to Teresa and Maurice, Shane's parents. They are in good form, Teresa was on for Fairytale of New York. Shane said he is working on a new record."

Guten tag A special 'big up' to The Cockney Paddy and the 'Stow massive!Sorry about Mick's Boys today,sounded like a grand effort to me listening on the radio.I have known The Cockney Paddy (C.P.) for longer than I care to remember.I introduced him to the aural pleasures of Rum etc back in '85 in a damp basement in London.I fully respect his opinion of the recent Fleadh, but having witnessed the Pogues at Glastonbury in the pissing rain in '84 I feel I have the right to make my own views public.The Pogues were made for the indoor Hall (not arena)and their finest moments have surely come at Brixton Acadeny,Town and Country Club etc.Hot,sweaty dancefloors where evn I,an Anglo with two left feet,felt impelled to do a mad'Irish'jig to every beat of their irresistible music. So yeah,the Fleadh may have been good,but we know where they should've been playing don't we,C.P.? P.s.C'mon USA/Mexico...please!

It is great to see such a vibrant site dedicated to our beloved Rock 'n' Roll Paddy. I first saw The Pogues in Birmingham, England in December 1984. After the gig at Digbeth Civic Hall, Shane, Cait and friends joined myself and my Brummie friends for drinks long into the Sunday morning. We eventually guided Shane, wearing the Donkey Jacket he had borrowed off Darryl Hunt, back to Birmingham New Street Station for the last train to London Euston and his flat above Stephenson's Stores. I ended up visiting Shane at home a few weeks later. The Pogues, and Shane in particular, were subsequently very kind to me over many years. They would, as a matter of course include me on the guest list for gigs in the British Midlands. I remember Shane almost getting into a fight with a promoter because the ticket staff at a gig in 1985 wouldn't let Joanne Ratcliffe, Julie Bedwell and yours truly into the Birmingham Powerhouse. I remember saying..."Look Shane, we'll pay, we don't mind. He fixed me with a stare and said..."you will not fucking pay", whilst continuing to bullyrag the hapless promoter. I still love you, Shane, Andy

Hi from Spain. The last week i was in the Fleadh with two friends, dancing, driking and shouting with THE POGUES. The concert was PURE FIESTA. It´s the first time I see the Pogues in other country and was a experience because the people are cool. Shane was excellent and the group too. A only a problem…dont played Sally Maclennane and A Pair Brown Eyes but it doesn't matter, they played all great songs. LONG LIVE TO SHANE. Cheers

Hi Alex, no they did not play with strummer I could only hear him as I was still trying to sweet talk my way in but the Pogues only played on their own.By the way I saw two great t-shirts there one said "Plastic and Proud Of It. "refence to being a plastic Paddy etc. And another one said "Fuck the world cup i'm going to the Fleadh."still remebering stuff loudest cheer of the night was when shane asked the crowd if they thought Ireland would get to the world cup final with England.I don't think so!! regards cockney paddy

Anyway I decided to go at the last minute 8.30 pm in fact.When we arrived at Finsbury Park Joe Srtummer& the Mescaleros were on stage so only the Pogues were left to go on,so I figured they would not still be charging the full entrance fee so I asked the price for 2 people and the box office told me £70 ukp.Now I love the Pogues but £70 for two when they were the last band on was a little too much.also security had told me only 6,500 had turned for the day when they were expecting close to 15,000 this I think was due to the terrible weather we are having in London right now.So we decided to walk round the perimeter asking at each gate if we could get in,starting at gate A,we slowly walked to each gate with the same negative response,I was giving up until we came to gate F and the security said he would let us in for £10 each we could not believe it.WE WERE IN !!! The Pogues came on to a fantastic roar,letting Shane walk on last always seems to get the crowd going as you never actually know if he is going to appear but he did he was not limping so much since I saw them at christmas at Brixton.In fact he looked as good as i have seen him in years.he is starting to look as if he maybe 3-4 moths pregnant now with his beer belly(only joking) They launched straight in with STEAMS OF WHISKEY and then played all the favourites BOTTLE OF SMOKE,MEDLEY,RAIN STREET (which shane dedicated to London cos it's always bloody raining)Terry sang also Philip sang "Thousands are sailing".Spider sang "Tuesday morning"."Sick bed of Cucullain",then two brilliant versions of "dirty old town" and "The old main drag" I have not remebered all the songs but you know how it is at a Pogues show.Two of my favourite songs of the night were THE BODY OF AN AMERICAN WHICH WAS FANTASTIC also Lullaby Of London. They finished on Fiesta when Spider and Shane took it in turns on the beer tray as I said before I think Spider may need his head testing after that.Shane was in fantastic form dancing during white city and dedicating a song to terry and james as the members of the band who had no hair and then doing that funny hissing crackling laugh that only he can do.He certainly was back on form. My only dissapointment was they did not play two of my favourites Boys from the county hell and Parting glass.They did one encore and played for about 1hour 20 mins.not bad I think they would have played longer but there are strict laws around that park with regard to not playing after 11pm. Juergen I must apologise for putting such along message on your guestbook and will promise that my next one will be shorter!! Regards to all you pogues fans out there. Regards Cockney Paddy

Anna -- I know for a fact that Shane missed his Chicago show because I was there! To their credit, the Popes tried to keep going & did pretty well considering. I know a lot of people were angry but if you like Shane, it's just a fact of life, that sometimes he just doesn't quite make it. I didn't feel too badly tho, because I had just seen in him in Dublin in Dec. with the Pogues.

I've been away for a few days and just read the messages from my Shane MacGowan group. Several people mentioned that Shane is in a Boston hospital. Nobody seems to know what's wrong with him. Does anyone know more? Let's just hope that it's nothing serious! Re the fan meeting: a list seems like a good idea, but this is Juergen's site, so before we go any further with this, he would have to agree to placing a list or whatever on his site. Anyway, maybe I could help with organizing the fan meeting, but I won't do it alone. By the way, who is "dear irene" or was this meant to address me?

Dear Irene, Success!!!! I was messing about on the net today and on a search engine asked to download trad. irish music and lyrics.The site is www.ireland-information.com Click on fun,then on music and lyrics.Type in Down by the sally gardens and you can listen to a computer generated instumental of the song.I have put the lyrics on the guestbook for anyone who is interested.Hope this helps.There are loads of trad.lyrics on the page a lot of which Shane himself has sung over the years. DOWN BY THE SALLY GARDENS... It was down by the Sally Gardens, my love and I did meet. She crossed the Sally Gardens with little snow-white feet. She bid me take love easy, as the leaves grow on the tree, But I was young and foolish, and with her did not agree. In a field down by the river, my love and I did stand And on my leaning shoulder, she laid her snow-white hand. She bid me take life easy , as the grass grows on the weirs But I was young and foolish, and now am full of tears. Down by the Sally Gardens, my love and I did meet. She crossed the Sally Gardens with little snow-white feet. She bid me take love easy, as the leaves grow on the tree, But I was young and foolish, and with her did not agree. regards,Cockney Paddy.

Thanks for the info, Juergen. Just had a look at the clip at celticvoices.biz, considering that this was at 3am, Shane was looking fine. Here's something to share with you concerning The Popes Gig on Wednesday in DC. Beth wrote, "Shane and the Popes were in fine form. They played for about an hour and a half. Shane seemed to enjoy himself, dancing and smiling, drinking and smoking. He sang all the classics, If I Should Fall..., Dirty Old Town, Irish Rover, Body of an American, Streams of Whiskey, ... and some newer Popes, Donegal Express, Angel of Death, Skipping Songs, Granuaille. The only new song was also his last, an old traditional Irish tune Sally Gardens. It was a fun night. He looks "healthy" other than his new beer-belly." Let's hope that he's still in fine form when he comes back to Europe!

hallo jürgen, hier meldet sich mal heiko wieder. weiss nicht ob du dich noch erinnerst. jedenfalls habe ich deine frage nach guten festivals in dtld. gelesen. ja wenn es irgendein richtig geiles und super organisiertes folkfestival gibt, dann ist es das am ersten juliwochenende des jahres in rudolstadt. ich war da sehr oft, allein schon wegen der atmosphäre. es ist das grösste festival seiner art in deutschland. ca. 30000-40000 leute sind da jedes jahr versammelt und machen aus der kleinen mittelalterstadt rudolstadt in thüringen ein paradies für alle folkfans., ehrlich, es ist toll und ich hatte die veranstalter mal vor ca. vier jahren angeschrieben, als "crock of gold" rauskam und mich ingrid dazu motiviert hatte. er hatte ja gerade mit spv einen motivierten deutschen vertrieb. Der veranstalter hatte sich sogar bei mir gemeldet, aber aus langjährig bekannten gründen (missmanagment) kam das nie zustande. aber wie gesagt, das festival ist eine perle mit x-bühnen von gross bis klein in der ganzen stadt verteilt, die stimmung dort ist super und die leute sind höchst sympathisch und friedlich. shane würde dort gefeiert werden. hunder pro!!! schau mal unter www.rudolstadt.de nach unter "tanz-und folkfest". es lohnt sich. ich selbst kenne kein ivent, dass so liebevoll organisiert wird. und noch immer ist es ein geheimtip. aber was für einer, dass sag ich dir. viel glück damit und ich beneide dich nicht, dich mit mister cashman rumschlagen zu müssen. aber ich drücke dir die daumen. melde dich mal, so oder so, heiko aus berlin.

Ganz klar, dass die Pogues besser sind als die Popes, aber mir geht es darum, Shane endlich mal wieder live zu hören und obwohl ich gern nach Irland fahre, wäre es doch etwas extrem, nur wegen der Pogues dorthin zu fahren. Für mich ist es nicht weit in die Schweiz und trotz der hohen Ticketpreise werde ich mir Rammstein und Co. auf keinen Fall antun! Es wäre natürlich schön, wenn man auch in Deutschland mal wieder das Vergnügen hätte.Das letzte Mal als ich die Pogues in Deutschland hörte, sang Joe Strummer und das habe ich nur 10 Minuten ertragen!

Ich weiss auch nicht warum, aber Joey Cashman (der Manager von Shane) ist diesen Sommer unheimlich scharf darauf, Shane auf Festivals spielen zu sehen. Er hat jedenfalls eine niederländische Promotion-Agentur gebucht, die möglichst viele Gigs auf Festivals arrangieren soll. Die Promotion-Agentur hat mich kontaktiert, ob ich interessante Festivals in Deutschland kenne. Also, wenn irgend jemand eine Idee hat, wo Shane in good old Germany spielen könnte, bitte melden. Wenn ich mich recht erinnere wäre es das erste Mal seit 1994 wieder in Deutschland. Ansonsten finde ich die Pogues auch um Welten besser als die Popes! Juergen

Frauenfeld ist vieleicht 30km Luftlinie von Singen, also verdammt nah an der Grenze. Problem ist nur das 140SFK sehr viel ist. Shane spielt Freitags, also muss man ein 3Tages Ticket kaufen :-( Sonst wär ich hin aber so nicht, wer will schon Rammstein, Faithless und so'n Scheiß hören... Wär mir scheiß egal in welcher deutschen Stadt die spielen, hauptsach kein Festival!

hi jürgen, vielen dank die veröffentlichung der mp3-files vom pogues gig in london. seit genau 10 jahren bin ich leidenschaftlicher pogues fan. vom ehemals exessiven folkpunk hören ist nur noch rudimentäres in form von shane und den pogues übrig geblieben. mit grosser skepsis ob der sicher zweifelhaften motive dieser reunion-tour sind nun alle zweifel wie weggeblasen. denn was zählt ist die musik. mir ist egal, ob die leute sich auf der bühne super verstehen oder nur eine zwangsgemeinschaft sind oder ob es es nur wegen des geldes tun. das musikalische resultat jedenfalls ist atemberaubend. und ich hätte es nie mehr für möglich gehalten. es ist nun wieder völlig klargestellt, das die pogues die wohl beste folkband aller zeiten waren/sind (?). diese unbändige energie ist sensationell. noch immer! und klar ist auch, dass die popes zwar nicht schlecht sind, aber dem original nicht annähernd das wasser reichen können. die popes solo sind ja ohne die präsenz von shane nichts weiter, als eine ordentliche pubcombo. nicht mehr und nicht weniger. zum zauber gehört nicht nur, das man seine instrumente beherrscht, sondern auch eine gewisse aura namens geschichte besitzt. und die hatte ja im falle der pogues durchaus etwas revolutionäres seinerzeit. das wird immer bleiben. völlig unabhängig von den menschlichen qualitäten der band. das interessiert indem falle gar nicht....

Hi!! I found out about Shane from a movie called Matchmaker with Jay O Sanders, Janeanane Garafola- I killed the spelling on her name- and Dennis Leary. I like the music on it and was lucky enough to stumble across a copy of a cd of Shanes' that has Haunted with Sinead O"Connor on it. But I would like to find a copy of the soundtrack to the movie. I've been told by record store clerks who weren't brain dead that it does exist but not for sale!!!Just about every movie out today has a soundtrack why not this one!!!Ok time for my meds!!Hahahaha- just kidding! So any information will be greatly appreciated!!!!!Thanks!

I went to see the Pogues at Manchester Academy and Brixton Academy in December and they were both brilliant gigs - but are there any pictures posted anywhere from these nights? Seeing these to shows with Shane and the rest of the boys made my year - it was unbelievable and I hope they might do some more someday.
