"I had to say, "Who's Poky LaFarge?"  so I'm ignorant.  An amusing tempest.  I like Bragg's point, a telling oversimplification, but interesting.  The Brits did (rather bizarrely) take up a version of…"

"Musical instruments dating to 41,000 BC have been found in Slovenia. Do they have a claim on this genre, too?"

Skiffle scuffle … as Billy Bragg brings out the pugilist in Pokey LaFarge!

Like Billy Bragg, I quite like Pokey Lafarge. His recent TEDx talk ‘Evolving through preservation’ was an amazing opportunity for him to enlighten us about the history and development of music in America. Speaking in St Louis, to a partisan audience, the eloquent orator Lafarge, made an excellent start. But at 3.35 he began to hesitate…See More

Danny George Wilson on Country-Soul, Roald Dahl and musical ‘Keepie-Uppy’

2013 was a big year for Danny George Wilson, the new record STAY TRUE, was universally fawned over by the music critics. He formed his first ‘stable’ band since the inception of 'Danny & The Champions of The World' and rode on the wave of a near sell out UK Autumn tour. I caught up with him as he relaxed prior to the penultimate date at the Maze, Nottingham.I’d heard his family ran a business emporium in Australia, I asked him to tell me about the early days and the Milk bar in…See More

John Murry ... truly at the 'End of The Road'

John Murry swept through the 'End of The Road' Festival (UK) like a dark desert storm on a summers day. So powerful and gut wrenching was his performance of the bitter sweet yet beautiful 'Little Colored Balloons' the final song of his set on Sunday, that seldom have I seen a crowd so emotionally…
