Shane MacGowen has said that if he hadn’t have become a musician he might have joined the IRA.
The Pogues singer grew up in London in the 1960s and 1970s. He had Irish parents and was angry with the hostile way they were often treated. The anger turned to hate and MacGowen was tempted to join the Provisionals.
His parents didn’t like the idea and persuaded him to pursue his musical talent as a way of venting his anger.
MacGowan said: “I was brought up by Fenians. I was told, ‘Watch out for the f**king Brits – them bastards!’ That was true when I came over here [London], and it’s still true – all the ‘no blacks, no dogs, no Irish’. That was true. You were hated.
