The Pogues • Rum, Sodomy, and the Lash • 1985


The album's title is taken from a quotation attributed to Winston Churchill "Don't talk to me about naval tradition. It's nothing but rum, sodomy, and the lash." The title was suggested by drummer Andrew Ranken, who said "it seemed to sum up life in our band".
