Pitchfork 500 - Dec. 6th - Billy Bragg

In 1985, his song "A New England" became an instant top ten hit in the UK. Billy Bragg blends folk music, punk rock and protest songs. I know not at lot about this dudes carrier, but I know he collaborated with Johnny Marr, R.E.M and not at least, Wilco. I kind of like this song.

This video is 'A New England' and Billy Bragg performes together with a damn smoking hot object - Kate Nash - at NME Awards 2007. Enjoy this protesty and now super commercialized song. Honestly I don't know why the fuck I picked this song. But it touched me. Or Kate Nash did. My eyes fell on it on the list. Or I am to busy. Have your own opinion ready. Helmets on!
