What sort of a review is that? Nothing about the Famine at all.

I think this:

"Shane MacGowans fengende låter og nesten rørende tekster"

translates loosely into

"The lead singer had drank 12 kilometers of gin before his surprised band mates had to fill in for him as he wandered erratically off stage."

I could be wrong though. And danged is that metric system of measurement isn't confusing, eh?

We didn't do "Cotton Fields", no. We've rather gone off it.

Has Boys From The County Heen been dropped? Was it played at all this summer/last December. Also a shame about Cotton Fields vanishing, I thought it worked real well

Has Cotton fields been dropped due to Shane appearing to not know any of the words and thinking it's Greenland?! ;-)
