Produced by Elvis Costello, The Pogues' second studio album brilliantly courted Irish drinking music with the thornier aspects of punk. Cait O'Riordan would eventually marry the producer and leave the band, but Shane MacGowan always made it his show and here he exploits his barfly voice to full effect.
