Shane Macgowan & The Popes

Rare Oul' Stuff

(Pogues, Popes)


Released on October 25, 2005

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

The Rare 'Oul Stuff--a compilation of B-sides and key album tracks recorded by Shane MacGowan with post-Pogues backing band the Popes and spanning the years 1994 to 1998--is unlikely to enhance the singer's public profile, but only because it doesn't contain any of the songs that temperance-favoring laymen are likely to remember. Thus, there's no sign of the minor hits "My Way," "Haunted," or "That Woman's Got Me Drinking" but, perversely, certain noncharting A-sides are included. The best of these is the cinematically scored "You're the One" (cowritten with Michael Kamen), a duet with Maire Brennan which juxtaposes the Clannad singer's windswept, virginal vocal sensuality with Macgowan's Gainsbourg-esque cragginess--an unlikely artistic match. On the other hand, "Christmas Lullaby" is just dismal. Elsewhere, fans of fornication-flavored vocabulary, rebel songs (the historical "Roddy McCorley" and the more controversial "Paddy Public Enemy Number One," a tribute to deceased Irish Republican Dominic McGlinchey), blazing tin whistles, and banjos can't go wrong--even if the version of "Danny Boy" is a case of too much Shane. --Kevin Maidment

For me this was a "MUST HAVE" for my collection. Shane McGowan (POGUES singer) was briefly kicked out of the Pogues in 1991 and he did some amazing solo stuff. This CD is sort of a greatest hits/out takes from his two solo albums "THE SNAKE" & "CROCK OF GOLD". This is songwriting at its best. Vocals pushed forward by an amazing poet. Get it now!
