The Pogues - The Ultimate Collection

By now, the world knows what happened in London on Thursday.
More killings. More hatred.
I don't know when or how or if this 'terrorism' will ever stop. I cannot see a way out for any 'side'. A war without argument, debate or visible combatants is the most difficult war to fight.
These people are not getting a point across any more. They are seemingly generally hateful of the west and are undermining and terrorising the west. They don't speak up any more. They don't make demands or ransoms. They just kill. As is being said a million times over today: The only real victims are the innocent people who are killed and maimed.
Hang on, that goes for every war right?
Is there any difference between a terrorist and a man in a uniform?
I doubt it. They both feel they have the 'right' to kill the innocent 'in the name of war'.
I wish the families of the victims peace.

The Pogues - The Ultimate Collection

I remember the very first time I heard The Pogues. I was with my dad visiting my cousin in Manchester. As I was a kid they had shifted me off to bed in the room by the living room so they could catch up on years they hadn't seen each other whilst sinking a few jars late into the night. As I lay there listening, a song came on. The song was 'The Old Main Drag' by The Pogues.
The song tells a story of London. Graphically and romantically, Shane Macgowans growling tones vividly convey a picture of Londons streets. The women, the losers, the dossers and drinkers. Bad luck and good. The ups and downs of street life. The side of London you might never even know exists if you were a tourist (perhaps). That song is still my favourite Pogues track. It is unmatched by anything I have heard since.
(Even the Fun Lovin' Criminals great song - 'Scooby Snacks'! )
It's a while since I had another 'Pogues phase' but it is long overdue. This album is going to have people saying oh-oh compilation. Not the real Pogues, Etc etc. They would be right. It is a compilation. It has all the tracks that you might have heard on the radio at one time or another and yes it does have 'Fairytale of New York'! (erm..)
The real gem in this compilation is the second CD. The whole CD is a collection of tracks, recorded at The Brixton Academy in 2001, catching their raw, pure sound. The way The Pogues should be heard. Warts n all, though you'd be hard pushed to find anything to slag off in their flawless repertiore so maybe the only warts would be on Macgowans face. I have a modest collection of The Pogues music so I will post more in the near future.
I discovered Shane has been in hospital very recently with 'stomach problems'. I sincerely hope he is going to be ok.
The man is a genius.
