This Weekend I’ll Mostly Be Listening to… Shane MacGowan and The Popes July 18, 2020

Posted by irishelectionliterature in This Weekend I'll Mostly Be Listening to....

After the break up of The Pogues,  Shane MacGowan was the frontman for The Popes for six years. They released a few albums and singles and played countless live shows. Saw them umpteen times and the sets were a good mix of Pogues and Popes songs. “Lonesome Highway” and “The Song With No Name” are two of my favourite MacGowan tracks ever. Even though they were very good, they still weren’t the Pogues!
