The Pogues

Celtic punk band

The Pogues is a British band that worked in the Celtic punk genre, founded by Shane McGowan in King's Cros, London in 1982. The group was founded under the name "Pogue Mahone" – an English-speaking gel's expression, which means "kiss me in the dumu". The group gained international popularity in 1980-ies — in the beginning of 1990-ies, having recorded several albums and singles. McGovan left the group in 1991 due to alcohol problems, but the group continued its activity — first with Joe Strammer and then with Spader Stacy on the vocal — until the break in 1996. The Pogues resumed their activities again in late 2001, after which they played regularly in the UK and Ireland, as well as in the Eastern USA, until 2014. The group did not record any new material during the second period.
