Billy Bragg


Wow - what a reaction to Billy Bragg, and what amazing choices he picked, with your help, from Elvis Presley to Toots and the Maytals and David Bowie. And then, just when you thought the tunes were about to dry up, The Quietus came with some tracks from artists you might not have heard about yet - but surely soon will!
