Additional information about this The Pogues vinyl art.

The Pogues – The Artist

The Pogues were an Irish-British Celtic punk band formed in 1982 and fronted by Shane MacGowan. The band was founded in Kings Cross, London, as Pogue Mahone—the anglicisation of the Irish Gaelic póg mo thóin, meaning “kiss my arse”. The band reached international prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s, recording several hit albums and singles. MacGowan left the band in 1991 due to drinking problems but the band continued first with Joe Strummer and then with Spider Stacy on vocals before breaking up in 1996. The Pogues reformed in late 2001, and played regularly across the UK and Ireland and on the US East Coast, until dissolving again in 2014. The group did not record any new material during this second incarnation. 

A Rainy Night In Soho – The Song

A Rainy Night In Soho was written by Shane MacGowan of the Pogues and produced by Steve Lillywhite. Two recordings and various mixes of the song were made in the studio. The song is commonly performed at Pogues concerts and was included in their recent setlists since their reformation in 2001. A video was filmed for the song. It shows Shane MacGowan with short beard, cool shades and leather jacket singing into a 1950s styled mic; the black-and-white footage is mixed with flicks from the protagonist’s childhood and frames from nighttime London. Finally Shane dances the waltz with his girlfriend before a burning fire.

The Umbrella – The Shape

An umbrella is a folding waterproof canopy supported by wooden or metal ribs, which is usually mounted on a wooden, metal, or plastic pole. It is designed to protect a person against rain. The word “umbrella” typically refers to a device used for protection from rain.
