The Pogues - The BBC Sessions 1984 - 1986 is an extensive collection of BBC recordings from the band between 1984 and 1986 with 13 of the recordings previously unreleased apart from their initial airing (see* in tracklisting). Available on CD, it will be released on 30th October.

A special vinyl version was released for Record Store Day (Saturday 29th August).

This 23 track album features a collection of songs from six separate live sessions - The John Peel Show (April 1984), David ‘Kid' Jensen show (July 1984), The John Peel Show (December 1984), The Phil Kennedy Show (March 1985), the Janice Long Show (July 1985) and the Janice Long Show (November 1986).

The Record Store Day vinyl version featured tracks from The John Peel Show (April 1984), David ‘Kid' Jenson show (July 1984), The John Peel Show (December 1984) and Janice Long Show (July 1985) session and was available for Record Store Day only.

Founded in 1982 as ‘Pogue Mahone' in Kings Cross, London they changed their name to The Pogues in 1984. An Anglo-Irish punk band that drew huge influence from the likes of The Clash and The Sex Pistols, but their sound was unique and distinctive also drawing from the band's Irish heritage. They carved out their own niche that would become known as folk-punk or Celtic-punk and at the time of recording these sessions, relatively early in the band's careers, they had started to find international success with a number of hit albums and singles. This success continued to grow through the 80's into the early 90's with infamous frontman Shane MacGowan being lorded as one of the truly great songwriters. In 1991 MacGowan left the band but The Pogues continued for a short time first with Joe Strummer and then with Spider Stacy on vocals but they eventually disbanded in 1996. They reformed again in 2001 with MacGowan back at the helm playing all over the world but they did not record any new material.
