…in GCN, you’ll find it online here, just scroll through to pages 36/37, and the article “Under Clery’s Clock” by Cathal Kelly.

It’s a great reflection which links the song with contemporary issues and as the intro says:

IN 1987, EX-POGUES MEMBER, PHILIP CHEVRON, WHO DIED THIS OCTOBER, WROTE A SONG THAT IS A RARITY: AN IRISH SINGLE WITH AN OPENLY GAY THEME. CATHAL KELLY LOOKS BACK ON ITS GENESIS AND GENIUS

It was a quite radical song for it’s time. All credit to Phil and the Rads.
