Et par runder og et væld af røverhistorier med den legendariske The Pogues-sanger, der stadig kan holde til flere omgange end de fleste.

The Pogues forenede irsk folkemusik med punkens energi og attitude. Med sangeren Shane MacGowan i front indtog de 1980’ernes London mod alle odds. En ægte rebel og rock n’ roller med en storrygers vokal og en seriøst legendarisk tørst. Men også en overlever, som for nyligt kunne fejre sin 60-års fødselsdag i venners lag med en drink ved hånden - og så kan han stadig rive røverhistorier af sig, så man tror det er løgn! Vennen Johnny Depp har produceret og sidder med ved bordet, og veteran-instruktør Julian Temple har været i arkiverne og ramt en guldåre af filmruller fra MacGowans og The Pogues’ storhedstid. Resultatet er et voldsomt underholdende rabalder af en film om en sanger med blå mærker på sjælen.

A few rounds and plenty of cock-and-bull stories with the legendary Pogues singer, who can still drink anyone under the table.

The Pogues combined Irish folk music with the energy and attitude of punk. With the singer Shane MacGowan as the band’s front, they conquered 1980s London against all odds. A true rebel and rock n’ roller with a heavy smoker’s vocals and a seriously legendary thirst. But also a survivor, who could recently celebrate his 60th birthday in the company of his friends with a drink in hand. And a born raconteur who still knows how to tell cock-and-bull stories! His friend Johnny Depp has produced the film and joins him at the bar, and the veteran director Julian Temple has visited the archives and hit a gold vein of film reels from the heyday of MacGowan and The Pogues. The result is a wildly entertaining hullaballoo of a film about a singer with a bruised soul.
