Poguetry In Motion is an EP by British celtic / folk punk band The Pogues, released in February 1986 by Stiff Records.

EP’s tend to be considered a collection of leftovers, but this is certainly not the case with Poguetry In Motion, with the material ranking alongside The Pogues best efforts.

The opener London Girl is one of Shane McGowan’s most simple and heartfelt love songs, rendered with infectious energy and abandon, while Rainy Night In Soho perfectly captures the nocturnal beauty implicit in its title, a lovely piano ballad complete with a sweeping string arrangement.

Planxty Noel Hill refers to Noel Hill, a renowned traditional Irish musician who, at the time of the release of the band's second album, claimed that The Pogues were disrespecting the whole Irish music tradition. Planxty has come to mean something akin to "cheers", though its use in the song's title is insincere.

The Body Of An American owes the most to The Pogues' past, from its whiskey-soaked narrative to its traditional (albeit raucous) Celtic folk.

This EP on limited red 180 gram heavyweight vinyl is pressed in Europe.
