BILLY BRAGG

Bridges Not Walls (Cook­ing Vinyl)

Irish Independent - Weekend Review - - FRONT PAGE -

You don’t have to be a stu­dent of global pol­i­tics to work out that the English­man’s lat­est al­bum is in­spired by the di­vi­sive fig­ure in the White House and the strife in postBrexit Bri­tain. Bragg is one of the great protest singers of his gen­er­a­tion and his fury re­mains glo­ri­ously in­tact here, es­pe­cially on ‘Not Ev­ery­thing That Counts Can Be Counted’ — an im­pas­sioned ri­poste to Boris John­son and his fel­low Brexit cheer­lead­ers.
