Fearnley’s book fits perfectly with the Pogues: for all their earthiness, they were a band concerned with myths, from the Irish legends MacGowan’s lyrics relocated to the back streets and pubs of north London to the persistent rock’n’roll fable of the damned, beautiful loser. In the process, MacGowan became a mythic figure himself: a myth, despite the unsparing detail that Fearnley ends up burnishing.

But as accordionist James Fearnley's memoir makes clear, there was a time when the notion of the Pogues becoming a beloved Christmas institution would have seemed bizarre, even slightly terrifying.

Fearnley was a frustrated novelist when the Pogues formed, which rather shows.

4. The Pogues Photo: Frederic REGLAIN /GAMMA. In 1980, when the young Mancunian guitarist James Fearnley auditioned to be in a band with a notorious London Irish punk called Shane O’Hooligan, he describes the chain-smoking frontman with the watery blue eyes looking as though he had come off worst in a fight or two. I could see where the cartilage twisted under the skin of his nose and where a kink of scar traipsed from an upturned lip into a nostril.
