Watch Lankum perform The Pogues’ ‘The Old Main Drag’

At the Shane McGowan 60th Birthday concert at the Nationaal Concert Hall this month, amidst a bewildering conveyor belt of high-profile artists who came out to sing, one of the highlights were Dublin folk-tradsters Lankum who did an acapella version of The Pogues’ ‘The Old Main Drag’.

The band have now recorded a video with Jamie Goldrick and David Knox of the band performing it.

If you ask me, Beneath The Earth and the Sky is my tip for the Choice this year.
