The Popes were originally formed by Shane MacGowan, although they no longer record or perform with him. This is a dub version by Claremont 56 label boss Paul Murphy, aka Mudd, of a song called “Bastards” from their last album. The Idjut Boys have also done a version on the A-side which is just as good. Two fairly similar edits, I think Mudd’s “Moule Frite” mix from the B-side just wins out.

Copies are on sale straight from the label. There’s a digital release also from the usual places.

Bjørn Torske‘s new album “Kokning” has just come out on Oslo label Smalltown Supersound. There’s some great tracks on here, this is one of them. The CD version of this is out now, and the limited 2xLP vinyl is available from the label’s mailorder.
