Kirsty Featured On The Tuner

A ‘lost’ collection of songs from the late Pogues member, Philip Chevron has been released.

Entitled, ‘The Tuner’, it was a musical Philip created with writer Declan Lynch. It told the story of Irish-American boxer, Jack Rooney. The album features collaborations from Kirsty, Sarah Jane Morris, Ronnie Drew and more.

Philip talked about the project in 2001, as part of a tribute to Kirsty for the ‘Hot Press’.

“For some time, Kirsty had been enthusiastic about a stage show myself and Declan Lynch have been writing, called Jack Rooney: In Person,” he wrote. “Last month, with characteristic generosity, she agreed to perform one of the principal roles in our recording of the score. She bestowed on the character all the wit, warmth, resilience and tenderness Declan and I had dared hope for.”

The songs Kirsty performed for the project sadly turned out to be the last recordings she did.

Although, some of the songs on the collection have been released on the hard-to-find 2008 promo compilation, ‘Say A Song – The Words And Music Of Philip Chevron Of The Pogues’.

‘The Tuner’ is available to purchase on Bandcamp.

There's a Girl Works Down at Walmart Swears She's Taylor

There's a Girl Works Down at Walmart Swears She's Taylor (Instrumental)

Here’s the video for it.

There’s A Girl Works Down at WALMART Swears She’s TAYLOR

 

Here’s what Philip said on the ‘Kirsty MacColl Fan Gang’ Facebook page:

“It started in a bar.

It always starts in a bar. I’m a couple of drinks in with David Barratt and he jokingly says that the song I co-wrote with Kirsty MacColl (_There’s A Guy Works Down The Chip Shop Swears He’s Elvis_) could be given a more modern, poignant reworking by substituting the two biggest cultural icons of our time:
Walmart & Taylor Swift.
We laughed, as we often do, at silly boozy ideas, but later in the evening I said: “_Hey, that could really work_”
The next day we were in his studio and the beginning of our song cycle about Taylor, Walmart and their cultural ramifications had begun.
There’s A Girl Works Down at WALMART Swears She’s TAYLOR”
I think Kirsty would have enjoyed this version and found it quite funny.
