I’m alone in the house, blasting Billy Bragg on the stereo while cleaning up. Part of preparation for the concert on January 30th.
Waiting For The Great Leap Forwards… my God I love that song. Does it speak to everybody in community activism like this?
- For those who haven’t seen it (I hadn’t), here’s the original video clip for the song.
Tank Park Salute, though, saddens me. Ah, the power of good music.

That is one of my all time favourite songs and I can’t believe that’s the first time I’ve seen the clip to it. I also love the new updated version of this song, “if you’ve got a web site, I wanna be on it…”
Ditto, though on reflection I think the clip detracts a bit from the lyrics, so I’ve switched the video on this post for a live version.
I was just listening to him in the car on the way home tonight! Didnt know you were a fan too Dan, unfortunately I can’t make his Sydney show… let us know how the Melb gig goes!
Ahhh, great quality singer and bloke :)
