From the vault – Billy Bragg

One thing I love about Billy Bragg is that he is genuinely timeless. That’s not because his music has the forever classicism that, say, the Beatles do, but because he’s constantly updating from where he was to where he actually is.  Therefore, 50 year old Billy doesn’t write about early 20s angst any more, because he doesn’t suffer from it. Unlike many other lefty 80s icons, he’s not still railing against Thatcher. Here’s his 2006 update on the classic ‘Waiting for the Great Leap Forwards’. The other bloke, incdentally, is Ian McLagen of the Faces. Quality.
