Thread Name: Obit: Pogues member Shane MacGowan (1957-2023)
Subject: RE: Obit: Shane MacGowan (1957-2023) of the Pogues
From the Oz ABC News:

Shane MacGowan, hard-drinking frontman of Irish punk band The Pogues, dies at age 65

I thought I had all of their albums but I missed this one so I had never heard those two songs until today:

"The band also released a 1986 EP, Poguetry in Motion, which contained two of MacGowan's finest songs, A Rainy Night in Soho and The Body of an American."

This track always makes me laugh when I hear Shane McGowan at the end of it, yelling at the musicians who are having an impromptu session to get back to work.
