Vinyl love: The Pogues “Rum sodomy & the lash”

(Vinyl Love is a series of posts that quite simply lists, describes, and displays the pieces in my growing vinyl collection. You can bet that each record was given a spin during the drafting of each corresponding post.)

Artist: The Pogues
Album Title: Rum sodomy & the lash
Year released: 1985
Year reissued: 2015
Details: Black vinyl, 180 gram, Remastered

The skinny: The second album by highly influential celtic folk punk band The Pogues saw them hit their stride with Elvis Costello at the production helm. It arguably launched a whole subgenre of music: punk with flutes, mandolins, and fiddles.

Standout track: “Dirty old town”

No detail is too little when it comes to good music. There are those happy accidents but I’d say for the most part, every detail is planned to the nth degree in good recordings and it’s fun to pick them all out.
