The Pogues

The Pogues were an Irish-British Celtic punk/folk band, active since the early 1980s. Originally known as "Pogue Mahone" (meaning "kiss my arse" in Gaelic), they gained popularity with their unique blend of traditional Irish music and punk rock influences.

After a successful run, the band split in the mid-1990s but later reunited in 2001. Despite their ups and downs, The Pogues left an indelible mark on the music scene with their raw energy and rebellious spirit.

Led by frontman Shane MacGowan, The Pogues captivated audiences with their heartfelt lyrics and distinctive sound. Their final show took place in August 2014, marking the end of an era for this iconic group.
