Rum, Sodomy, and the Lash

What I was doing while listening: Driving through the mountains to go hear Jonathan Safran Foer speak in Santa Cruz.
What I should have been doing: Driving to Winters Tavern in Pacifica. It would have been just the right distance of a drive to make it through the album, and just the right dive-y-ness of a bar to take advantage of the mood.
Bonus info: produced by Elvis Costello! And he married the bassist a year later!?!! Random note: this is the 15th album I've randomly selected from this book and the second by the Pogues?! The universe is telling me something...
