Birds, Leps, Observations & Generalities - the images and ramblings of Mark Skevington. Sometimes.

This week, I have mostly been listening to ..

Rum, Sodomy & The Lash - the classic 1985 release from The Pogues. If you have never heard this record, I absolutely insist that you buy it now! Dirty Old Town A Pair of Brown Eyes This video has got nothing to do with the brilliant lyrics by MacGowan - it's a political comment on the Thatcher government of the day based on George Orwell's '1984'. Shane MacGowan - ugly, toofless, drunk, genius.

Classic album. I can't believe there is a right-minded individual out there that hasn't at least heard it.

Yes buy a copy... now!

I remember seeing them at De Montfort Hall around that time (early 86?) - one of the best gigs I've ever been to!
