Philip, do you know wicht tuning Terry is playing on his Bouz?


I went straight to the source and got this reply:

"Hello Chevy , Re the Cittern , the tuning I use most with the Pogues is ..... bottom to top CGDG , it allows me to play a lot of half chords which are quite Modal sounding( which I like ) . Hope that answers the question ."

Does anyone know what Shane says in the "If I Should Fall From Grace With God" intro? I got the this much "This is a song about how everything comes in threes . . . O'Brien's remarks many years ago . . . the man who discovered ??? (lighting cues?). I cannot figure out who this O'Brien is.

I think he's referring to Flann O'Brien, writer. I think he says...

"And this is a song about how everything comes in 3's, as Flann O'Brien remarked........ many years ago.......the man who discovered money kills"

Thanks Father, I owe you an ice cold one. I read Flann O'Brien 20 years ago in college, but I thought Shane was talking about a scientific discovery and couldn't understand that he was saying Flann. As I remember, one of O'Brien's novel was told from 3 different perspectives or something along those lines.

I live Los Angleles, Ca. so I might have to send you your pint in the mail. If I ever make it to Ireland though, Tipperary will be on the top of my list of places to visit. I remember watching a video clip of a young Shane saying that Belfast is just as fucked up as London, but if you can live in a nice little place like Tipperary, Ireland is great. I get enough of the big city everyday, so I enjoy the countryside on vacations.

Do you get many "Broad Majestic Shannon" tourist in Tipperary?

Regarding the CD/DVD I think the Spider sound is too low. But is wonderfull to have the 2nd official live DVD from The Pogues.

Damned. Seeing the Brixton DVD and this one it makes me very sad. 3 of them are already in heaven. My sons and wife says that I'm crazy, almost crying for people I didn't know "alive". I really didn't know them but they belong to the person I am today. I'm old enough to say: I'm 45 and love the Pogues since my youth, and it was at least 25 years ago,

And why they don't put the 2006 show in DVD - the bonus Thousands Are Sailing from Mr. C. in DVD? Is hard to have excelent DVD rom The Pogues. Is a shame.

Sorry to correct you, but it's from 2004, not 2006.

I was one of the people that Philip dedicated 1000's to in 2006 at the MEN Arena and remember the gig well as it was the year when the sound wasn't up to scratch. Philip dedicating the song to me that night made things a lot better and I met him for the first time after the gig.

I said 2006 because is what is written in the box cover (I have the 2CD+2DVD box).

Despite the error the message is the same: what is the reason for not having good video concerts in the stores? Official ones, with good image, sound, ...

Not just the sound but the shadow of Tom McManamon (R.I.P.) death .I remember being so shocked and saddened at that news , wondering if the show must go on or could//should it.The Pogues where on form at other gigs on that tour , but that cloud was too soon and too big.That said I still went home wih a smile on my face.Even at bad sounding Pogues gig still hits home.

Quick question. I seem to recall a thread regarding the french documentary on here somewhere but cant find it? It discussed where it was filmed et etc. I know the interview is in The Devonshire Arms? Are the live bits filmed in the Pindar of Wakefield?

So tempted to watch this marvellous DVD tonight and open me whiskey. This must be one of the absolute best Poguey products ever made.
Every home should have one. Can turn a shit night into a night of magic! The Whiskey will also help things along just nicely.....
