Hell's Ditch is the fifth studio album by The Pogues, released in November 1990, and the last to feature frontman Shane MacGowan as a member. Hell's Ditch continued the group's slow departure from Irish music, giving more emphasis to rock and straight folk rock, and forsaking their earlier staples of traditional compositions almost entirely

Life's a bitch, then you die Black Hell Hell's ditch - naked howling freedom The killer's hands are bound with chains At six o'clock it starts to rain He'll never see the dawn again Our lady of the flowers. Genet's feeling Ramon's dick The guy in the bunk above gets sick In the cell next door the lunatic Starts screaming for his mother. Black dildo, black hell As the Spanish cops ridiculed my gel A mugshot I remember well Little man how you have suffered.

Hell's Ditch is perhaps The Pogues' most dwelling album into the counterculture of mythic piracy and celtic rowdiness. Shane MacGowan, the band's chief songwriter and vocalist provides his usual, uncanny, slurred, drunken vocals, with the help of traditional celtic barroom music behind his vindictive narratives. The lyrical content (I believe as said by Med) is almost completely incomprehendable, yet manages to purvey images exactly of what MacGowan is saying. The history of the Pogues' substance abuse, and rowdy music is an enjoyable listen.
