With a mixture of Punk and traditional Irish Folk, the Pogues are on the road with an absolutely unique musical colour, and this for over 30 years now! Their probably most famous song "Fairytale of New York" is one of the most famous Christmas songs worldwide and has made the "Pogues-Sound" reach the mainstream. The Pogues are so to speak the "incarnated" mixture of fun, dance, parties and "some" alcohol. Here banjo, saxophone, tin whistle, accordion, guitar, drums, bass and a distinctive voice celebrate life and its aberrations. They have made history, and so successfully that even those who normally don't like this kind of music don't and at least know the band name
To celebrate this anniversary appropriately, the first 5 classic albums are now available and the 1986 EP "Poguetry In Motion", produced by Elvis Costello, is back on vinyl.
