Vinylcast #54: The Pogues’ Red Roses for Me

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

For 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 recording!
