Live at The Union Chapel, London June 5th. 2013
If you weren’t fortunate enough to make it to this concert – or even if you were – this has to be one of Billy’s best gigs and one of the best documented. None of that holding your mobile over your head and annoying everyone else behind you, then missing it all and having a wobbly, screechy video that no one wants to see again. This is a multi-camera epic recorded in stunning 5.1 surround sound make you feel like you were sat in seat 3B and that if you shout ‘Play A New England’ loud enough, Billy might hear you – he’d still ignore you but it’s the thought that counts.
But this isn’t just a film of the magnificent Union Chapel playing host to Billy and his band performing songs from his Tooth & Nail album along with a host of classic Bragg tracks from his career….breath…no, this package comes with extras. Extras? Yes extras, and I mean extras, not people playing background parts or additional services after a massage, but extras in the guise of video golden nuggets (not actual gold).
We have exclusive interviews with the Barking Bard, footage from the Wembley gig, promo videos and even the outtakes from the Johnny Vegas’ directed video for Handyman Blues amongst other stuff. We also have an audio CD of the thing just begging to be listened to like a needy child.
Finally, as if you haven’t been spoiled enough, we have included a set of five exclusive photos for you to pin on your fridge and pretend you took them.
So if you only buy one DVD of ‘Billy Bragg Live at the Union Chapel’ this year, make it this one.
“A warm, angry, nostalgic and contemporary performance; this might just have been the ulltimate Billy Bragg experience”
