Shane MacGowan: Roamin' Catholic
Pete Paphides, Time Out, 22 September 1994
It's a long way to Tipperary. Ask Shane MacGowan, who staggered out of The Pogues to spend two years exploring his home town and re-examining his Catholic past. Now he's back with a new band, The Popes, and he's as mean, moody and angry as ever Peter Paphides buys him a drink.
