This review is from: Red Roses For Me (Audio CD)
My Dad had a Clancy Brothers (the 4 jersey's)album which I loved as a boy; when I first heard the Pogues it was the Clancy Bros for nutters. It was the sight of Spider Stacy smahing a beer tray off his head on the Tube that first got me interested. Bought RRFM. My mum thought I'd joined the orange lodge the first time I put it on. What can I say, ultimately my favourite album ever. Not one bad song and each one a varying combination of passion and beauty and energy and roots and authenticity and roughness and total mentalness as well as cracking music. The genuine article. Got Shane McGowan's autograph once, it said ACAB,Shane. Thats what RRFM was all about, that attitude in music.
