33 THE POGUES, Restless, Tallboys, London Hammersmith Palais, Sunday 22 September 1985

An extremely sweaty concert, this; sold out and packed to the gills with drunken Irishmen and muscular rockabilly types, up for slamdancing to the 2 dreadful support acts. Unsurprisingly, the bar was impossible to get to! The Pogues were shambolic, raucous, a bit thin on sound and static onstage, but enjoyable, with wild Irish jigs aplenty in a long fiddly-diddly singalong set. Got a set-list; God knows how!
