For my Billy Bragg I’m going back to the early days when he was on fire – a punk rebellion. Those fist two alums – full of politics and fire. That’s my Billy – raw, loud and highly political!
Between the Wars, Which Side Are You on. It Says Here! The World Turned Upside Down. What could be better.
I like my Billy raw and angry!
I’ve seen him a number of times live -always good! But the first time I saw him was in Hull when Between the Wars was riding the charts – just him and his guitar (amplified). He was superb. It sent jolts through me.
So today I shall be playing those first two albums loud!! (Later I might play Mermaid Avenue – his Guthrie songs – I love that too!)
