Shane MacGowan: “I’m a lazy sod. I’m bad at doing any kind of unnecessary work, like having my photograph taken, being asked questions and particularly doing interviews..”
But he did this one ;)

Harry, for getting better idea you should try his albums with The Pogues or with The Popes. This song is more lie a curio than a typical Shane :)

The Pogues at the West Coast Blues N Roots Festival (Fremantle Park, Perth, WA) on the 1st of April.
Local press has already convicted the band of stealing the show :)
"The crowd for the band was so large that the Big Top was completely packed out and hoards of screaming and dancing fans loyally listened out in the rain."

Jolly "The Rocky Road To Dublin" inspired two different teams to create Ireland's Euro 2012 anthem.
The song by Shane MacGowan, The Aftermath & Friends competes with another re-make of the famous Dubliners' song by Ray D'Arcy listeners and Irish football team which also was released on Friday May 4. A pure coincidence it is, because Mullingar band The Aftermath say they had the same idea months ago.

"This is a rockier version of 'The Road to Poland'," says Johnny Cronin. He adds: "It's a comedy song. Ours is more of a 'Lisdoonvarna / The Craic Was Ninety In The Isle of Man' version. Even Gallagher's pub in Drumlish gets a mention."

"We were playing pool in Gallagher's Bar, Drumlish, and Jean Genie by David Bowie came on the Jukebox and Shane started singing Rocky Road to Dublin over the drums and bass. That was the inspiration. We knew where to take it from. There got the bass and drums down. The song is going to have good Bowie/Trad feel!"

To make their own – rockier – version of Ireland's Euro 2012 anthem the Cronin brothers, Shane MacGowan and his friend Tom Creagh penned new topical but comical lyrics to the tune of the cheerful folk song. To record it they have joined forces with some of the biggest names in Irish rock and trad. Along with Shane MacGowan, Johnny & Mick Cronin and The Aftermath band the song features Tom Creagh, Rachel Ray, Joe Rooney, Mike McGoldrick, Matt McManamon Sean Gavaghan, Duncan Paterson, Kieran O Malley, Chris O Malley, Ciarann Cronin, Paddy Flannery, Frank Byrne and Marie Therese.

Mixed by top Irish engineer Ger McDonnell, mastered in Abbey Road in London, Shane MacGowan, The Aftermath and Friends track 'The Rockier Road to Poland' is out on Live Transmission Records and available for download from Amazon now.

"You could be excused for thinking that every ex-pat Irishman in the state had made their way to the Big Top by the time The Pogues entered the stage, such was the electric atmosphere as people crammed in like sardines to the oversized tent. The pin up boy for drinking songs, Shane McGowan, appears to be aging backwards, while chain smoking and raising his glass to the crown all evening. Their crowd favourites came thick and fast with Streams Of Whiskey, And The Band Played Waltzing Matilda and Dirty Old Town has fists pumping, Irish flags waving and alcohol fuelled voices off and on the stage flowing. MacGowan staggered on and off stage as Spider Stacey took the lead, or the band took a more traditional approach with some acoustic fare, but he always returned to rapturous applause particularly when returning for a frenetic take on Sally MacLennane and the sparkling Rainy Night In Soho.
