The Pogues – Hells Ditch

This Album was the last album release before the departure of Shane Macgowan from the band.It contains a lot of material with Joe Strummer (former frontman with The Clash), who had now joined the pogues and taking over as lead.The Strummerisation shows on this album with the Turkish inflluence in the sound, a sound which Strummer embraced,his father being Turkish, and used in a lot of the Stuff he done in the years to come. At this point Shane was at the point where he’d about had enough,and Strummer does a lot of vocal on this album.

Another Album well worth a listen to if you havent heard already.
