The Pogues combined Irish folk music with the energy and attitude of punk. With the singer Shane MacGowan as the band’s front, they conquered 1980s London against all odds. A true rebel and rock n’ roller with a heavy smoker’s vocals and a seriously legendary thirst. But also a survivor, who could recently celebrate his 60th birthday in the company of his friends with a drink in hand. And a born raconteur who still knows how to tell cock-and-bull stories! His friend Johnny Depp has produced the film and joins him at the bar, and the veteran director Julian Temple has visited the archives and hit a gold vein of film reels from the heyday of MacGowan and The Pogues. The result is a wildly entertaining hullaballoo of a film about a singer with a bruised soul.
