Crock of Gold: A Few Rounds with Shane MacGowan

Available on iTunes
Now In Theatres. From Julien Temple (“The Filth and the Fury”), Crock Of Gold details the iconic punk poet Shane MacGowan’s explosive existence, from his youth in rural Ireland, to time spent in London’s burgeoning punk scene, to forming his internationally successful band The Pogues (“Fairytale of New York,” “Dirty Old Town”), which combined the ferocity of punk with traditional Irish folk. MacGowan’s songs are raw, unflinching and unashamed, reflecting the seasons of Shane's life — hedonism, alcoholism, God, redemption and romance, in all their respective grit and glory — coupled with his humor and deep knowledge of history, spirituality, and popular culture. For this is Shane’s story: a vision of the world through his eyes, channeled through Temple’s inimitable and vibrant lens.
