#556 The Pogues – Rum Sodomy & the Lash

The Pogues were a British Celtic band. Rum Sodomy & the Lash their second album was produced by Elvis Costello. Is it me or is folk music on the rise at this time period of music history? 

I will let the band’s lyric describe how I felt listening to this album.

And now I’m lying here I’ve had too much booze
I’ve been shat on and spat on and raped and abused
I know that I am dying…

I am sorry, but you must have a special temperament or deafness to enjoy this music. Maybe you have to listen to it while drinking your fifth beer of the night. This was so painful to listen to for me, almost Joan Baez pain level. 0.5/10.
