Billy Bragg: Secret Sessions
A really nice burst of Billy Bragg on the latest from the always admirable Secret Sessions.
His new album Tooth and Nail seems – on a first few lstens – to build nicely on his earlier Americana-tinged excursions with Wilco on Mermaid Avenue with a set of mellow and essentially personal songs.
I’m looking forward to seeing him in Brighton again in May. Meanwhile, ‘Handyman Blues’ definitely rings true for me: I’d always opt for songwriting over putting up shelves…
