En 94, Shane avait écrit un court avant propos pour un recueil de nouvelles d'un auteur "activement" présent lors des 1er concerts de Pogue Mahone.

I first met Jim McCool when he was a member of the Armagh crew coming to PogueMahone gigs in the early eighties. At the time, he was a semi-legendary figure in the audience, slamdancing and banging his head against the stage, whilst drinking huge quantities of cider. This was the early McCool, a true Gaelic hero, worthy of his name…
As time progressed, we all got older, maybe wiser, maybe not…
McCool started to develop a talent for writing short stories … a literary figure in a pink drape jacket, with star potential.
His lust for life is reflected in his writing style, and in the content of his stories, which are hardhitting pieces of poetry in prose form, which concentrate on the Irish in London and the ‘London-Irish’.
He is a man who manages to blend the lunacy and lecherousness of rock ‘n’ roll culture onto the written page. He is the most exciting writer I have read in many years.
But I think I’ve probably said enough… McCool’s stories speak for themselves.
- Shane MacGowan, Spring 1994.
