Not a Pogues/Shane fan, but this is a great song:

Documentary also being repeated: The Story of Fairytale of New York

"For the first time in 18 years, all eight members of The Pogues return to the studio where their biggest hit - and the nation's favourite Christmas song - was recorded. The song's producer Steve Lillywhite strips Fairytale down to the basics, and director Peter Dougherty reveals the tricks behind the making of the video - including how a cameo from Hollywood star Matt Dillon stopped The Pogues from almost being arrested. With contributions from Matt Dillon, Nick Cave, Jools, Holland and of course Shane MacGowan and The Pogues, it lifts the lid on this seminal track and reveals the secrets behind its making."

Glad you enjoyed The Godfathers Uli.
2 gigs for me last week- Rocket From The Crypt in Leeds. Venue was sold out and they were godd but not at their best. Couldn't hear the sax.
Then 999 at the New Cross Inn, London. They played very well, good to see Pablo back too. My first visit to this venue and was impressed- good atmosphere and a real ale bar downstairs. Support band were The Blue Carpet Band- dumb name but pretty good.

City beating the scum yesterday was made even better by Morhino's ridiculous comments before and after the game. ;D

Well I did make it to the Godfathers' show last night!  :)
It was a rough day, very cold. When I arrived, quite a few people were there already at "Goldmarks" pub. Most of them looked how I felt: old and tired...  :o
Anyway, once The Godfathers started with "This is war", any tiredness was blown away by their sheer energy! "If I only had time" followed, one of my faves.
(Anyone who says he/she likes guitar-based rock'n'roll music, but does not like the Godfathers, must be DEAF!)
They really rocked the house and played many old hits like "Love is dead" next to the new ones - most of these, in my opinion, are as good as the old ones, especially "Till my heart stops". In one case I recognised a song but didn't know the title and thought "must be from early 90s", until I realised it was one from the new album ("One good reason")!
Peter Coyne said they liked Germany (with the notable exception of "Fritz cola" - well I hardly ever drink any cola, so I don't really know the difference), he also commented a few late arrivals with a nice "missed the best songs", ha ha.  ;D
Last song before the encore was "Birth School Work Death", last encore was a cover of "Blitzkrieg Bop"!

Of course, this being a Saturday, there was a "disco" afterwards, so I was on my way home already before 11pm - after a short chat with promoter Micha, who told me that he needs to find new venues for weekends, as it is often the problem that there is a "curfew" because of disco after the bands (when he has 2 bands playing it will be difficult to be finished by 11)...  ::)

Wish I could've... in the evening I felt very unwell with an upcoming head cold (incl. trouble with the ear).  :(  :(  :(

Hope it'll be better until Saturday, when The Godfathers play!!
