The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.
Once saw them playing at The Hope and Anchor in Islington, a happy memory indeed. Me and my then girlfriend were up in town and had nowhere to stay. After the gig we were wandering down a pre-gentfried Upper St and went into a Kebab shop, got chatting to an Irish girl working there and she offered as a room in her squat for the night. Thank you Charlie from the Shankhill wherever you are.
Excellent. Now that is a happy memory indeed. Wherever she is I hope that Charlie is doing fine
