Was stunned: it sounded exicting, full-on, alive, and completely unlike any of the other shyte that was polluting the airwaves back in the mid eighties (jaysis it was an awful time for music). Through the Pogues I got to know the Clash, and from then on the floodgates were open.
The Pogues saved me from crap music. And if any of them are reading this, thanks, lads!
Welcome to Medusa!

I don't remember if I remember this correctly, but I remember it in black and white with Shane smoking at the piano. When I first saw the Fairytale of New York video, it looked just the same. I would kill today to have that bit from the Cutting Edge.
