We’ve made no secret of the fact that we’re huge fans of crime novelist George Pelecanos, whose taste in music is very similar to MAGNET’s and who has contributed to the magazine a few times over the years. We’re also huge Pogues fans. So we’re thrilled to bring you this video footage of Pelecanos reading from his latest novel, The Way Home, at a London pub called Boogaloo, followed by an excellent mini-set by the Pogues (playing their first pub gig in 26 years). Watch part one, part two and part three of the video. Read our week-long overview of Pelecanos and his books.
