Superb Documentary On A Modern Day Masterpiece!
18 May 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Pogues are very close to my heart, so it was vitally important that the documentary captured the very essence, style and atmosphere that "Fairytale Of New York" evokes. It is rare that Shane MacGowan gives interviews compus mentis, but for this documentary I believe he's almost of sound mind! It's great to see the original members such as Philip Chevron, Spider etc take an active & enthusiastic approach to this doc and the involvement of Kirty McColl's mother was both productive and touching. This is a truly honest, stylish and professional documentary worthy of it's place in the BBC archives, and deserving of repeat airplay just like the sublime recording "Fairytale Of New York" - voted by the British Public as the greatest ever Christmas song (yet, ironically not directly related to the Festive period, more the Irish descendency upon New York!). Fantastic Documentary, Fantastic Song & A Fantastic Band!
