Billy Bragg Fight Songs

Billy Bragg Australian Tour - Radio Broadcast (Listen Now)

Published: 20/10/2012   by: http://www.abc.net.au

Billy Bragg came to attention as an anti-Thatcher, folk-punk agitator and then retraced folk music's steps and embraced the poetry and songs of Woody Guthrie. He's touring, talking, singing, mentoring and tweeting during this visit to Australia. One of his latest preoccupations is what will replace the quick agit prop folk song. Is it hip hop or social media and will it make you cry like like Levi Stubbs Tears?
