Chapel Hill-area label Yep Roc is offerring free downloads of a new anti-war song by Billy Bragg. It’s 165 seconds of raw blues, good humor, and great politics.
Being a man of action, Billy ducked into Big Sky Recordings in Ann Arbor, Mich., on March 22 and laid down “Bush War Blues,” with lyrics adapted to express his condemnation of the war in Iraq. His voice husky from his hefty touring schedule, Billy originally attributed the song to a newly-created alter ego, Johnny Clash.
