Shane MacGowan features on ‘The Lone Ranger: Wanted’ album

Written by admin

Shane MacGowan has recorded a new version of traditional folk song ‘Poor Paddy on the Railway’ for an album of songs inspired by Johnny Depp’s new film ‘The Lone Ranger’.

Producer Gore Verbinski explains the selection: “These are the artists we listened to on the way to set each morning and in the evenings with the dust, like bitter chalk, upon our teeth.” Iggy Pop, John Grant, Gomez and Grace Potter & The Nocturnals are amongst the other artists featured.

The Pogues originally recorded a version of ‘Poor Paddy on the Railway’ in 1984 for their first full length album ‘Red Roses For Me’.
