Pogues Gallery. By Glenn O'Brien : Articles, reviews and interviews from Rock's Backpages.
Are you all from London?

Shane: There's four from London, two from Manchester, and two from Dublin – Phil Chevron, the guitar player, and Terry Woods, who plays concertina, banjo, and the cittern, which is a mandolin – or bouzouki-type instrument. They're both Dublin-born and bred. Then there's Cait, the bass player, Andy, the drummer, and me – we're London Irish. Spider Stacy, the thin little geezer who plays the whistle, he's a Londoner. And Jem, the banjo player, and James, the accordion player, are from Manchester.

The Pogues: It's Really Pogue, Man. By Richard Grabel : Articles, reviews and interviews from Rock's Backpages.
Though two of the Pogues are originally from Dublin, and though traditional Irish music is obviously, at this point at least, their main influence, the Pogues insist that they are not an Irish band but a North London band, and their records bear out this assertion. Songs like 'The Old Main Drag', 'Dirty Old Town' and 'London Girl' evoke London people, places and moods. And though some of their instrumentation is folk, the mood of the music is definitely urban.
