Re: Billy Bragg..Roots,Radicals and Rockers..How Skiffle Changed The World
I have just received my copy. I have only dipped into it but I was not encouraged by yet another reference to Lonnie's output as 'music that could be performed on washboards, tea chests and cheap acoustic guitars'.
Sounds like the opposite of the slick and accomplished combo that we knew in 1957 - Donegan, Denny Wright, Mickey Ashman and Nick Nicholls.
Maybe I expect too much....
