Somehow missed this important news, but after all these years good old Shane MacGowan has a new set of teeth.

Pogues singer Shane MacGowan

Have to say he looks 1,000 times better!

But will the new choppers make his enunciation any clearer?

Haha, there's a chance it could actually hinder his unique style - too much teeth.grinning smiley
Also depends on how much whiskey he drinks...if he still drinks.

According to the article:

They have helped him to reclaim his unique singing voice – because he can now ‘phrase things properly’

These teeth are not exactly new. He bought them second-hand from Keith last year and finally had them installed.

In comparison Shane makes Keith look like Mother Theresa.
Despite, getting new teeth, he still has a long way to go, health wise. In true tabloid style he was described as 'very frail' recently, still recovering from a serious injury to his pelvis.
Still, his bank balance ought to give him good cheer. His Christmas ditty earns him close to £400K per annum.

I think Shane is like Dean Martin, in that he pretends to be drinking.

Not so sure about that, Keith (at least the last 10 years or so), I would say most definitely.

hmmm...not so sure. Even with his vocal degradation, Shane is still my all time favorite singer!

Bizarre!!!

I saw it reported as the Everest of dentistry. I wish him well. An original maverick, and great songwriter.

Well, its 17 years since weve had a new recording from the man....so maybe it will happen in 2016. Writers block?

He's actually had many recordings, just not any albums. He has appeared numerous times as guest vocalist for many bands, including a Lancaster County Down album where he sings 5 songs.

...and even has released a couple singles, if I recall correctly. Here's one I like, it reminds me a little of Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah
