Billy Bragg: Don't Try This At Home
Michele Kirsch, Select, November 1991
ON 1988's Worker's Playtime LP, Billy Bragg was "Waiting for the great leap forwards". It's been a long time coming, but he's made that leap, and with the help of adventurous producer Grant Showbiz he pretty much craps over every pigeonhole he's ever had the misfortune to be bunged into by both the critics and, to some extent, himself.
