No one has a better smile than the Pogues’ Shane McGowan. And by that I mean worst smile.
However, there is good news. After decades of dental horror, Shane is finally paying attention to his choppers. Sky Arts TV in the UK has commissioned a documentary about Shane’s progress towards some semblance of oral hygiene.
Shane MacGowan: A Wreck Reborn follows Shane through some industrial-level dental work on his way to getting a set of dentures. The NME quotes creative director Ian Lamarra: “Shane is one of the great songwriters ever produced in Great Britain and Ireland, and we want this film to reflect that. It’s got a great PR-able new angle on the Shane MacGowan story and it will leap out of the Christmas schedule.”
Watch out, A Charlie Brown Christmas.
