Andy P. Davies wrote:He could even do a bit of singing, too! No - in all seriousness his voice live in the early days was f***ing brilliant. He was a supreme ballad singer - there would be the odd note or word out here or there but his voice had real soul. As the writer Iain Banks put it at the time - like a rusty bayonet.

I love his voice on almost every Pogues/popes song even it can be quite different from album to album it seems to fit the "theme" on the album. Have to say i think his voice was weakest on cog. Maybe Phillip can answear this. When you listen to Shane's voice on the snake then 3 years later cog or Iisffgwg and peace and love it is quite different, howe mutch of this is the producer responsibly for. And howe mutch of these chages are natural. On live recordings i thinks Shanes voice mostly been fantastic and has not change that mutch compare to some of the albums.
