Heard him for the first time tonight on BBC6 and loved the songsmithery. Any fans?
Yep. I got into him through the Cross my Heart comilation. Joe Hill is an epic epic song. The stuff he did with Van Dyke Parks is pretty amazing as well...if a little bonkers at times. Great, earnest video here:
surely Outside of a Small Circle of Friends: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ulTmmTIlM_o is one of the best political pop songs ever written, and yet I don't think the album is even in print these days.
