Irish Indie Rockers FONTAINES D.C. Cover Anglo-Irish Legends THE POGUES

7 Decmeber 2020

This year the young Irish wolves FONTAINES D.C. rocked their way to
the top of the indie universe with their second album A Hero’s Death.

Today we feature them with a magnificent rendition of sepia-colored
ballad I’M A MAN YOU NOT MEET EVERY DAY.

Actually, a traditional Irish music hall song recorded by THE POGUES
for their superb 1985 album Rum Sodomy & The Lash sung by Cait
O’Riordan
, ex-wife of Elvis Costello, who played bass with The Pogues
for four years.

The Fontaines‘ version is glorious. Frontman Grian Chatten‘s melancholic
voice, the Xmassy harmonies, and the overall Fairytale Of New York feel is
just exquisite.
