Shane macGowan and the Popes – The Snake

After a few rough years following his departure from the Pogues, Shane was back on form, as was well shown on this Debut Album.
Teaming up with fellow ex-Pogue, Spider Stacy,Bassist Paul McGuinness, accordianist “Big Tommy” McMannamon , Shane was now ready to Blast the world again.This was the first album Shane did with The Popes and also features Dubliners Banjo Player Barney McKenna and Hollywood actor Johnny Depp on electric Guitar.
This was a brilliant album when i first heard it on its release back in 1994, and still today, is up there with the greats.
