The Popes
The Popes, formerly led by Shane MacGowan, will be playing favourites from their back catalogue and selections from their upcoming album, ‘Outlaw Heaven’ that was mixed by Chris Brown (Radiohead, etc.) due for release in October. The current line-up includes Paul (Mad Dog) McGuinness on guitar and vocals, Charlie Hoskyns - guitars and backing vocals, Will Morrison - drums, backing vocals, Laurie Norwood - bass and backing vocals, Fiachra Shanks - mandolin, guitar, banjo, backing vocals, and Declan Daly on fiddle.
“Mudlow have one eye firmly on the US, but their seedy, growling version of the music of The Deep South, has the salt of the Channel in it’s lungs and the darkness of [Graham] Greene’s bad boy, Pinky, lurking in the nooks and crannies of excellent debut album, Welcome To Mudlow Country. The obvious reference point is Tom Waits, though there are moments which remind of Springsteen’s better work. And the lecherous saxes of the humongous brass section give an interesting and original air to this fine collection.“
