I'm looking for a type of music that I heard on the radio recently. It was from the UK, and it sounded like a bunch of people in a pub have a grand old time and singing. It was fast paced, and well organized (not like a bunch of blokes attempting karaoke. It was really cool, but I have no idea who it was! Any suggestions?

It's not the Pogues' 'Fairytale of New York' is it? THat sounds like a bunch of blokes in a pub at times, but is a top tune.

I think it's either Flogging Molly or the Pogues, and if not its certainly that style. Thanks for the replies!

Yeah, British pub music would be Slade.

Irish pub music would be the Pogues.

Fairytale in New York is a charity single release in the UK at the moment, Christmassy as a mince pie in the ear.
