"Initially known by the moniker "Poguemahone" (Irish Gaelic for "kiss my arse"), the band quickly found greater airplay and acceptance converting to the shorter "Pogues". A large band both in sheer numbers and their impact, The Pogues made their presence felt from the very beginning. Members Shane MacGowan, Peter "Spider" Stacey, Andrew "The Clobberer" Ranken, Jem Finer, Maestro James Fearnley and Cait "Rocky" O'Riodran (the band's only female member) hit the road with constant gigging that combined traditional staples with rowdy originals. The Pogues were a smash on the folk circuit, and the scene was perhaps changed forever by their presence."
