    Shane MacGowan: If I Should Fall from Grace - The Shane MacGowan Story


    Hissing like a pickled serpent, Shane MacGowan smashes headfirst into this entertaining documentary on a non-covert mission to endearingly slur heartfelt songs while guzzling every single drop of alcohol within reach as tragedy suddenly strikes from out of nowhere and his beloved bottle of Irish whiskey is kidnapped by invisible terrorists forcing Shane to assemble a ragtag group of patrons from the local pub to bring her back alive.

"Shitter Island," "Poop Dreams," "Follow That Turd."

I even had a wall-mounted screen installed in the bathroom…
