Wiggy Podcast 14
Half Bragg Half Bloke

Mermaid Avenue is a success, but Wilco can’t tour with Billy to promote the album because their own album is running late. Billy tours first with ex-Faces keyboard player Ian McLagan, then with Mac and his Bump Band in the States, before forming an English band - The Blokes - to tour the Mermaid Avenue catalogue.

Eventually, they begin co-writing their own album - England, Half English - after Billy resists the temptation to make his temporary stint as a BBC Radio 2 disc jockey into something more permanent. A decision to write a book on English identity, which becomes The Progressive Patriot, leads to a five-year wait before work begins on another studio album.


Recorded by Wiggy at Billy’s home in Dorset in February 2007
