Product Description

Product Description

1989's Peace & Love was produced by Steve Lillywhite, marked other band members' musically coming to the fore more often as MacGowan became increasingly volatile. Standout tracks include 'Gridlock', 'Blue heaven', MacGowan's superb 'White City' and the band's first CD single Misty Morning, Albert Bridge'. Six pack of bonus tracks include the charting single Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah', the traditional 'Star of The County Down', and the Pogues take on 'Honkey Tonk Women. Essay by Patrick McCabe, extensive liner notes by David Quantick.


The last great Pogues album, and the beginnings of the end of Shane MacGowan's association with the band. Much of Peace And Love is written and sung by the band's other members, and while this is no problem in itself--any of Phil Chevron, Terry Woods or Jem Finer could have carried a band by themselves--the album as a whole has the somewhat strained quality of people forcing themselves to have a good time despite everything. This is not to suggest MacGowan contributes nothing of interest. "White City", a lament to a demolished dog track, and "Down All The Days", a tribute to the writer Christy Brown, are both examples of everything MacGowan was good at: an economic and morbidly funny use of language, and an ability to wring new melodies from the most worn folk chord progressions. However, the real attractions here are turned in by MacGowan's long-suffering bandmates: Chevron's shimmering madman's lullabye "Lorelei" especially, a glorious and frustrating hint of a solo career that, disappointingly, has shown no sign of happening. --Andrew Mueller --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
