Saturday Matinee: If I Should Fall from Grace: The Shane MacGowan Story


This documentary about the lead singer of Irish-by-way-of-London band the Pogues paints a complex, heartrending, and ultimately frustrating portrait of an artist who could still be contributing so much to music if he could just get his shit together. But it’s never as easy as that, is it?

Did you all know Shane MacGowan is on Twitter now? Has a series of words strung together ever made less sense than what you just read?

Shane MacGowan’s Twitter

I don’t expect he’ll stick with it long, especially since he and his partner Victoria have been trying to reply to every @ that comes their way and seemed a bit overwhelmed last night, so experience it while it’s fresh.
