The 'Pogues': friendly men with wet past
Munich - Shane MacGowan is in the dark sunglasses in front of the eyes, cigarette between his fingers. Throughout the concert in the Zenith it will not even touch a spotlight. Only when he leaves the stage hunched shuffling step to Spider Stacy and Philip Chevron to leave the microphone, you can see just who is singing. The rest is dusk, directed by Shane MacGowan, the voice and the mascot of the Pogues, as a journey through three decades of band history.
Naturally fits into the concept, finally, the Irishman was once the trinkfesteste band of folk-punk era. Of course they are celebrated by people in the hall of heroes as whiskeyumwölkten excess, especially when they sing hits like "Dirty Old Town 'or' The Sunny Side Of The Street '. So the concert for a one Kapitelchen pop music history, one in Munich, not long before seen the evening with the fathers of the movement, who have then released as the opening act for The Clash or Elvis Costello buddies from the Irish folk music from the shackles of the Rustics.
Yet we have this guest appearance of former drunken robbery A somewhat sobering. For the Pogues act on stage now exactly how those funny musicians that they had once been too conservative. The excess is the past, he has written on her face is Shane MacGowan, his voice to be heard, to look at his stance. What remains is friendly, folksy-drying, the text sometimes boorish, socially critical or simply innocent music that can bring a hall like the Zenith to the swaying and indulge.
