It’s not the first non-fiction film chronicle of the Celtic punk; in 2015, MacGowan was the subject of the documentary Shane MacGowan: A Wreck Reborn.

In the summer of 2015, MacGowan fell as he was leaving a Dublin studio, fracturing his pelvis. MacGowan has been using a wheelchair since the accident.
