Shane MacGowan heads out for a very long night with Uncut in the new issue, dated August 2014, and out now.



The singer and songwriter talks about The Pogues, his new songs, a surprising new fitness regime and casual violence.

“I got my head kicked in fucking millions of times in the ’70s and ’80s,” says MacGowan. “But so did lots of people. There was a lot of violence. It was a lot of fun!

“Getting beaten up, or getting hit by a car… you get used to it, y’know. You bounce off. Hitting a motorway doesn’t really register ’til later.”

The new Uncut, dated August 2014, is out now.
