BILLY BRAGG TOURS US EAST COAST

Spinner "Interface" Podcast Launches This Week

Legendary folk/punk figure Billy Bragg is set to tour the US in the lead-up to this years election, making a dozen or so stops along the Eastern Seaboard beginning in mid-October.

This week, Spinner launched a new Interface podcast, featuring an in-studio performance from Billy, singing songs from his latest release Mr. Love and Justice, and well as an in-depth interview with the revered populist in which he talks about trying to overthrow Margaret Thatcher's government, the music he's most proud of and how Prince Charles is "a f-king jerk." See it here.

Mr. Love and Justice, Billy's 12th studio album and his first in six years, has been widely hailed by fans and critics alike:

- "A return to form, a step forward, and a potent reminder of why Bragg's music still matters." -All Music Guide - "Whether you prefer him shouting vitriol on the picket line or whispering sweet nothings in the bedroom, you'll find plenty to enjoy here." -Billboard - "Frequently fantastic folk-rock that keeps both the faith and your attention." -Village Voice
