The Shane MacGowan Story: If I Should Fall From Grace

This unflinching, music-driven documentary provides the first real insight into the background and career of this legendary Irish artist who, as lead singer and songwriter for The Pogues, became a worldwide punk icon. It demonstrates why, despite years of drug and alcohol abuse that have pushed the archetype of rock and roll to excess to its outer limit, he is still widely regarded as one of the very finest songwriters of his entire generation. The film includes contemporary interviews interwoven with performance material stretching back to Shane's earliest work, along with fly-on-the-wall footage from both London and Ireland. Both the highs, and the often-alarming lows of his career are revealed. Includes performances of: 'Paddy Public Enemy No.1', 'If I Should Fall From Grace With God', 'Infatuation', 'Gabrielle', 'Waxie's Dargle', 'Streams Of Whisky', 'Dirty Old Town', 'The Irish Rover', 'Fiesta', 'A Rainy Night In Soho', 'Fairytale Of New York', 'White City', 'Summer In Siam', 'Song With No Name', 'That Woman's Got Me Drinking', 'Haunted', and 'Lonesome Highway'.
