The first Pogues Demos were recorded in the Pre-Stiff time as Pogue Mahone (1983).

1. Rocky Road To Dublin
2. Greenland Whale Fisheries
3. Repeal Of The Licensing Laws
4. Kitty

Pogue Mahone - Almost Live
Very shambolic, very few people in the audience, a few hand claps after each song!
Shane announces at one point: "For what there is of you, you're a great audience.
Another time: "It's very nice to be here tonight - I wish somebody else was".
They play "The Holy Ground" which the only recording of this song to surface to date).
They also play the earliest known Pogues version of Dirty Old Town as well as Rocky Road To Dublin
and Me and Bobby McGee. This show beats the shit out of "Live at the 100 Club".
