Vinylcast #54: The Pogues’ Red Roses for Me

Backcover of the Pogues’ first studio album Red Roses for Me (1984)

For #vinylcast 54 it is another appearance from the Pogues‘s, this time their first studio album Red Roses for Me from 1984. I picked this vinyl up 10 days or so ago in Venice, and I have to say it sounded quite good. A bit noisy, but that’s how I like it. Physical media #4life. It’s an original German pressing, and the cover might be the only time I have seen a band member added via insert. It’s a raucous album and I have to say that the Pogues may be the most unlikely and beautifully imperfect band to emerge from the 1980s, I never tire of listening to them. Anyway, enjoy the #ds106radio recording!
