Billy Bragg

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

Billy Bragg is as well remembered for his music as for the lyrics of his songs. His music was largely political and many of his songs carried a strong political message.

Billy Bragg's first album was "Life's A Riot With Spy Vs. Spy" which was released in 1984.

    OMG Billy Bragg what an absolute superby blast from the past, and it is quite wierd that I actually saw him on the tele the other day pre election, so in hindsight not such a suprise, very political but very very witty and working class, I played Lifes a Riot over and over as a Teenager and was particularly taken (as were the majority) by Between the Wars!! If I am correct he also wrote New England which was a massive hit for the late Kirsty McCall, and he also had a lot of dealings with my teenage hero Paul Weller - if you ask me the guys a genius - Paul and Billy :-o)
