Merry Shane Day

Its December 25th again and its time to celebrate Shane MacGowans birthday.

It seems that while America continues its War Against Shane, by refusing to ever play A Fairytale of New York on any of those 'all christmas' radio stations that threaten to drive us all insane; it is number 1 in the UK all over again.

While its never going to be my favourite Pogues song, it is the only christmas ditty that doesn't instantly induce vomiting.

I finally got to see Shane and The Pogues this year and shambling as he was you can't say the man doesnt still have a sort of charisma. But you have to wonder what he could have achieved even half sober over the last 30 years.

Happy Birthday Shane and Happy Christmas yer arse.
