Pogues accordionist previews his memoir, "Here Comes Everybody"

UPDATE: James Fearnley writes with new news! See below.

I knew the moment James Fearnley of the Pogues sat down at the microphone at the Mohn Broadcast Center last week that not only would it be very difficult to edit the interview down to six-minutes - which is long for us - but that the stuff we left on the cutting room floor would be great stuff for a special podcast. Or Poguecast, in this case. So here to have more than half-an-hour with a man who was there at the beginning, 30 years ago this October. And at the end of the podcast you'll hear his new single, "Hey Ho," a deeply beautiful song.

From James Fearnley: As some of you may already know, my memoir Here Comes Everybody: The Story of The Pogues was published in the UK and Ireland last week. I am excited to announce that I will be having an exclusive stateside event to celebrate the first publication:
