It's getting to that time of year when this cunt will be following me around day and night

The only thing we knew for sure about Henry Porter was that his name wasn't Henry Porter.

FUCKING FUCK THE FUCK OFF WITH THAT SHIT.

I cannot tell you how much I fucking hate that song, people lining up to fawn over a perpetually drunken tramp.






Maybe the Pogues are my Radiohead?


EDIT: Oh shit, looks like this year's gonna be even worse.

The Pogues' 'Fairytale Of New York' has been made the bookies favourite to bag this year's Christmas Number One Single.

This Christmas marks 25 years since the song, featuring the late singer Kirsty MacColl, was released and the band are celebrating the landmark with a special anniversary re-release.

Irish bookmakers Paddy Power has given odds of 25-1 for the song to be top of the Official UK Singles Chart come Christmas Day, making it their favourite. The track will be re-released on iTunes in a song, video and instrumental bundle on November 26 and as a limited-edition 7" vinyl on December 3.

Speaking of odds. What odds would you have got on McGowan outliving McColl by an ever growing distance

Saw the Pogues & Kirsty McColl perform that at Brixton Academy on New Year's Eve maybe the year after it came out. It was a good gig, as it goes.

It's a cover of an old outkast tune with lots of brass, just a bit quicker IIRC.

PROPER LODGED STILL...

That's on my current playlist at work. I've reached a point where what I'm doing makes little sense to me.

Tonight, for example, I'll be playing stuff like that in Sheffield until about 3.30-4ish on Sunday morning. Then I'll get in the car and listen to Radio 2 for the hour's drive home. Contrast.

I'm a bastard hybrid of the two.

Incidentally, I'm sure this must be getting an airing at your house. I quite like it actually. It's catchy, it's quite humorous, and it takes the piss out of all the modern hip-hop bullshit about who's got the biggest car/gun/bling/gang of hos etc

Not sure how we got onto it but wound up spending a long time discussing the utter fucking brilliance of this album with some mates fully two weeks ago, and this bastard is still in my head.

Oh, I love that fucker; it's rarely off my most played list. Mate of mine works for the design agency what did the graphics and videos for that album. That's quite brilliant work, too. Love the track Exterminator most of all, I reckon.

I also have very fond memories, from a couple of summers ago, of being at some sort of eco-fair in a park in Brighton and getting extremely wound up by the idiot fluffiness of the cunts there. Got in the car, opened all the windows and cranked up 'Kill All Hippies' as I drove out past them. Richly satisfying.

Aye I love the artwork, the whole thing just summed up stuff that just wasn't being said at the time, and still isn't. ('EVERYONE'S A PROSTITUTE' etc). I saw them at Leeds festival that year and it was unbelievable, that slot on the main stage just when the sun's coming down.

Looking through that yootoob link though, all the comments just seemed to be spunking about the Football Factory. For fucks sake...
