one man emo band
take on Billy Bragg? Superb.
As is his emo song for that matter...
made my laugh like a goon. all the way through. chip shop regime indeed.
but f'seriass - bragg's guitar style and chorus dynamics are remarkably similar, as well as the whole heart on sleeve lyrical thing. about half of his songs (at least off "back to basics") if you put an up beat rhythm section behind him would sound exactly like early jimmy eat world
I saw him live once, doing a miners strike benefit in my local park about 22 years ago.
An ex girlfriend was a HUGE fan so we had to go and watch his performance at the 1988 Reading Rock Fest (or was it 89?).
