Billy Bragg Never Buy’s The Sun

Well in Billy...

In light of the recent News Of The World scandal, UK singer/songwriter/activist/rabble rouser Billy Bragg has released a song called Never Buy The Sun lambasting the worst tabloid scum on the planet over their devious behavior. Standing by itself, it’s a class song that addresses a number of issues everyone should be appalled by but name dropping Scousers and their refusal to buy into this rag of a mag gives the song a little extra punch. The song is available for as a free download, with some Dylanesque organ, for the time being onhis website and a video of an acoustic version has popped up all over the place. Billy doesn’t exactly need us to talk him up but it’s more than worth your time to give it a listen. Pop by his Twitter and let him know what you think.
