Philip Chevron

From: Dublin





Phil Chevron is best known for his time in the Radiators From Space and The Pogues.

The Radiators split in 1981 and Chevron joined the Pogues in 1984. In between he was involved in a number of projects and released two solo records. "Songs from Bill's Dancehall" was a collection of songs from the musical "Happy End" (1929) written by Bertold Brecht and Kurt Weill. "The Captains And The Kings" was a song written by Brendan Behan, included in his play The Hostage. It was recorded in London in July 1983 with Elvis Costello co-producing with Colin Fairley. Both tracks have appeared on various Demon compilaton CDs.

Chevron also has a long list of production credits including The Radiators and The Atrix, Agnes Bernelle, the Men They Couldn't Hang, Mighty Clouds of Dust, The Peelers, The Pogues, The Prisoners, The Real Wild West and the Tall Boys a.o.

He is currently in the reformed Radiators.
