The Pogues – If I Should Fall From Grace With God
I Should Fall from Grace with God is a 1987 album by The Pogues. It reached number 3 in the UK album charts. The album was a departure from previous Pogues albums, which had focused on an Irish folk/punk hybrid, combining musical radicalism with strong commercial appeal. On If I Should Fall From Grace with God several more genres were added to this mixture, including Jazz, Spanish folk and Middle Eastern folk.
The Pogues – Rum Sodomy & the Lash
Classic 1985 Pogues record. Pick this up! Fronted by the poetic spirit and raging, often besotted stage antics of lead singer-songwriter Shane MacGowan, The Pogues made unforgettable music that terms such as "Celtic punk", "trad-fusion", or "progressive-folk" only begin to describe. This is their brilliant second LP, produced by Elvis Costello. Highlights include "The Sick Bed Of Cuchulainn", "I'm A Man You Don't Meet Every Day", "The Band Played Waltzing Matilda", and "A Pair Of Brown Eyes".
Warren Zevon – Warren Zevon s/t
At the time Warren Zevon cut his first self titled album in 1976, he was not considered an average member of "LA's Mellow Mafia." Zevon's music was full of blood, bile, and mean spirited irony, and the glossy surfaces of Jackson Browne's production failed to disguise the bitter heart of the songs on Warren Zevon. But for all their darkness, Zevon's songs also possessed a steely intelligence, a winning wit, and an unusually sophisticated melodic sense. Warren Zevon may not have been the songwriter's debut but it was the album that confirmed he was a major talent, and it remains a black-hearted pop delight.
