Celtic rock, traditional Irish folk, Punk, Pub Rock, The Pogues were all these things and more and defied classification. Without them there is no Dropkick Murphy’s or Flogging Molly and they had the stamp of approval from iconic collaborators Elvis Costello and Joe Strummer. Each of their first three classic LPs deserves a dedicated episode and this week we tackle their third from 1988 If I Should Fall From Grace With God.
