5.0 out of 5 stars The Pogues- Need I say more
In the height of their anarchic best, on St Patricks day in the the Town and Country Club. Shane holding court, snarling and melodic in equal bursts, and the band as tight and emotive as ever.
All the classics, an audience high on the result, captured live it encapsulates what the Pogues were about and even on DVD you feel you are there, and feel drained and ecstatic...

2.0 out of 5 stars Best just buy the music
I bought this thinking that it would be an hour or so of the pogues in concert. Unfortunately what you get is bit of an interview / cut to a song / cut back to another bit of interview then repeat, so there is no continuity. The picture is quite grainy and does not expand to fill the screen. It's the sort of thing you watch once then file to gather dust. If you want...

5.0 out of 5 stars This needs six stars., 19 Feb 2012
This review is from: The Pogues - Live At The Town And Country Club London [DVD] (DVD)
This concert was recorded at the time of the Pogues' masterpiece album, IF I SHOULD FALL FROM GRACE WITH GOD. Shane MacGowan has said that the band peaked at this point. The Pogues toured the UK in February and March of that year. The Saint Patrick's Day show, as usual, was terrific. Fortunately, it was videotaped and released commercially as THE POGUES LIVE AT THE TOWN & COUNTRY. It stands today as a vital document of a great live band in its prime. Every Pogues fan should own this recording. Rake at the Gates of Hell: Shane Macgowan in Context

5.0 out of 5 stars Shane & co in fine form, 25 Jan 2009

This review is from: The Pogues - Live At The Town And Country Club London [DVD] (DVD)
The packaging of the dvd is misleading, the photo's on the cover are from entirely different concerts, however this dvd is fantastic. The quality is not great, the footage is very grainy, but the music shines through.
Shane sneering and spitting every word with passion. Great guest appearances through out the show. Great stuff all in all and worth the money.

The picture is quite grainy and does not expand to fill the screen. It's the sort of thing you watch once then file to gather dust. If you want to really enjoy live pogues music, buy "Live at the Brixton Academy" - ok no visuals but infinitely better sound and straight through music.
