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.
