To absorb Rum, Sodomy, and the Lash "is to be taken on a wild voyage with a cast of downtrodden revolutionaries. This book discusses, in the form of a sea-faring narrative, the record's articulation of what it is to be magnificently trodden. It shows that what the Pogues created "is far more than pub-room music created by drunken men wallowing in Irish nostalgia and pining for something subversive.
