No this is not The Pogues, it is Ottawa, Canada band Jimmy George, formed in 1991 and a mainstay at local pub The Duke of Somerset where they played every Sunday night and many other nights for over 10 years. They released two videos ("Four Feet From Shore" and "One Convention", toured nationally several times, appeared on Rita & Friends on CBC TV as well as many other TV appearances on MuchMusic, City TV, CBC, etc...

If you enjoy Modest Mouse, Mumford and Sons, Spirit of The West and The Pogues, you'll enjoy this song!

Hey I'm kinda drunk with this
Does it seem clear to you?
I've been planning to mock your image
Just to see what you would do

Kind of makes me nervous
The way you smile that flagrant smile
We've been here for a long long while
We're just beginning to catch the style

I'd settle on one convention
Or two....

You've got no idea
What I've been going through
You've got no idea
The kinda shit we've been going through

Yeah I'm spent on LSD
And the cops are after me
It's just a simple little metaphor I use to describe
What's so frequently coming true

We're all waiting for the kiss of redemption
It just hasn't happened yet
We're all waiting for one good kick
That's the point of no regret

(Repeat chorus)


from Same S#​!​t Different Day, released January 1, 2011
