The Pogues Hell's Ditch on 180g LP

Soulful and soused, usually in equal parts, The Pogues’ music combined the youthful spirit of punk with ancient Celtic melodies to create a sublime racket that’s been described as the Sex Pistols setting fire to The Chieftains. Rhino Records raises a pint in one hand and a fistful of Pogues in the other with 180g vinyl reissues of the band’s classic albums Red Roses for Me (1984), Rum Sodomy & the Lash (1985), If I Should Fall from Grace with God (1988), Peace and Love (1989) and Hell's Ditch (1990) along with a limited edition colored pressing of the 1986 Elvis Costello produced EP Poguetry In Motion.

Produced by Joe Strummer of The Clash, The Pogues’ final studio album with Shane MacGowan - Hell's Ditch - was released in 1990. Strummer would also serve as a temporary replacement for MacGowan on the band's subsequent tour. The 13-song collection includes the dreamy blues waltz of “Summer In Siam,” as well as a pair of songs inspired by literary legends Jean Genet and Federico Garcia Lorca - the title track and “Lorca’s Novena,” respectively.
