Billy Bragg

Dare we say that Billy Bragg is the ‘godfather of political pop’? Yes we dare say we do. Famously quoted as saying ‘I’m not a political songwriter, I’m an honest writer’, Billy has forged a very long and successful career, far beyond that of many of his peers, from writing honest and heartfelt songs. The fact that much of his material is inspired by his political views is neither here nor there really, all great artists have their muse after all. The fact is that 30 years on he’s still standing in there, able to shout from the rooftops, able to reach willing audiences and get his messages across - testament indeed that great music can and does out live changing economics, politics, and government and social reforms. With the 30th anniversary rerelease of his 1984 top 30 album ‘Life’s a Riot with Spy VS Spy’ and a 14 date tour across the UK in a few weeks we thought we’d like to have a chat with Billy, to see if anything has actually changed much since the 80’s, and what he thinks of music today. And can we just say what an absolute gent the man is. You’ve always had very strong views on politics and the UK government, If you hadn’t got into music would politics have been a path you’d have been tempted to go down? No, I don’t think so, but I’d probably be ranting on a street corner somewhere or writing a blog. That’s who I am.

Do you think the music scene has changed much in the last 30 years? It’s still similar; people are buying music, just in a different way, and wanting to go to see bands live. There’s a ‘communion’ vibe at live shows that you only get at live shows. What do you think about the whole Miley Cyrus debacle, and the fact that someone so well respected as Sinead O’Connor got involved by writing her a public letter? Do you think that was a waste of time? Well it was rather a waste of time, but she’s had experience and is aware of all the pitfalls of the industry. The industry is sexist, and it’s hard seeing someone being used...male directors telling her ‘get your kit off’, exploiting the fact she’s a young impressionable lady. If I saw a young person being exploited I’d be tempted to tweet advice too. Your 30th anniversary edition of ‘Life’s a Riot with Spy VS Spy’ was released last week (21st October). What’s new on it? The original album is 17 minutes long; I sometimes used to play it in its entirety as an encore at shows, so this re-release also includes the live version of that ‘encore’. You say ‘sometimes’, is your set list unplanned? Well the sets are planned but with room for change. It depends on the vibe at the shows. If I’ve already played those songs as part of the set it might not happen. Every night can be different though, and encores are usually spontaneous. What does Billy Bragg stand for in 2013? Billy Bragg stands for the fight against cynicism...on the internet, in politics, in society. It’s about growing up, because as we get older we have less and less time for those people. If a young Billy Bragg was starting out today I’d be worried about him. What can we expect to see on your upcoming UK tour? Anything new happening? I have a full band with me on this tour, something a little different as I often go out on my own. Having a large back catalogue and lots of solo material as well means I can change things up at the shows, mess things around a little MARIANNE HARRIS bit. I’m looking forward to it!

Do you think that we, as the public in 2013, still have the ability to get fired up about politics, or do you ever feel like a bit of a lone voice while the rest of us sit on our lazy asses and watch XFactor? Well it was like that in the 80’s, during the miner strikes - plenty of people sitting on their asses watching Coronation Street. It’s always been like that. It’s just now fewer people believe that politics can have a meaning in their lives. Catch Billy at O2 Guildhall Capitalism isn’t an enemy, cynicism is. Cynicism is a much bigger Southampton on enemy.

December 2

What do you think of Morrissey’s autobiography being a Penguin ‘classic’? I couldn’t give a monkeys! He could have put it out on a Digestive biscuit for all I care!

www.billybragg.co.uk

At the beginning of your career you’d label your singles with messages like ‘pay no more than...’ as a stand against consumers being ‘ripped off’. How do you combat that 30 years on? Well nobody buys records any more, it’s all digital - buy them off the internet, buy them on iTunes, buy them from Amazon. Times have changed. We can’t control the market any longer. You can’t print a price on the front of an MP3. The room for independent thought has been closed down. In an age of vacuous pop is it still important for music to have a political voice, and can it have an effect? Well it can’t change the world, but there is room for music to say ‘something’. Look at Ed Sheeran, he wrote a song about a prostitute who takes drugs and dies, and it became a worldwide hit. The video has had over 60 million hits, so people are still making a connection with messages in music.

BILLY BRAGG


ROCK REGENERATION Is it really November already I cannot quite believe that over at Hope Fm we are talking about recording our Live Wire Live Christmas shows already, this year has just flown by so fast.

w w w. ro c k- re g e n e rat i o n . co. u k

The start of October saw a flurry of early Halloween activity down at the Anvil with a single launch by the zany mad cap punk band Escapefrom’98. The band dressed up like Zombies and treated the audience to a full on entertaining set of quality fun punk tunes .There was excellent support from the recently formed 9 Left Behind who played some great original punk pop tunes, along with Swindon’s power trio Slagerij whose energy and entertainment left a last lasting impression on all who watched. On Saturday 19th October three Bournemouth venues were taken over by a host of local bands all doing their bit to make a difference all in the name of Oxjam. Each band/artist gave the time for free and thoroughly entertained their audiences for what turned out to be a fantastic fun filled day. Organiser Charlie Barton has the task of overseeing the whole operation making sure her merry band of volunteers and bands were all in the right place at the right time. As with any event of this size problems occurred such as bands dropping out and technical problems, but the team persevered with a great outcome that raised a good deal of money for those who most need it. Over at the Inferno as well as some top class acoustic acts like Shaun Gary Palmer, Andy Stock and Aaron Jamie there were also some totally rocking bands the thrilled audiences well into the early hours. One of the highlights included the talented young rock band ‘Walk The Night’ who turned up the volume, creating a beautiful noise with their expertly played twin guitars. The evening was ably closed with Mischa & Merry Men who all wore their hearts on their sleeves spreading musical love throughout the responsive Bournemouth crowd. The annual event is a great showcase of local music and a fantastic way of raising much needed funds for the Oxjam cause. Congratulations to the organisers and artists for making Oxjam such a fantastic event.

A record label called End Of Trail Records paid a visit to Bournemouth during the middle of October, show casing a couple of their own impressive acts Harriet Jones and Weatherbird along with a hand picked selection of local Bournemouth acts. To be honest I was like a kid in a sweet shop having some of my favourite local bands all in one place Fearne, Empire Affair, Sansara and Kissed By Kate who are all very different in their own way had me grinning from ear to ear by the end of the really fun packed evening.

Jonny McBee(vocals) How would you describe your music to someone who had never heard it? The music you would hear if there was a massive brawl at a rave. If you have to create a new genre for your music what would you call it? Hardcore Style? Its hard to come up with a good name. Something that involves Hardstyle and Metalcore. What was the best festival you played this year? Full Force in Germany is always the best! Which member of the band would make the best girl? Our tour manager Frank might as well already be a girl. He’d be a pretty hot chick though I’ll give him that. When do you think was the best era for music? Early 2000s by far. Everyone is trying to go back to that sound now but noone will be able to pull it off. What did you do before The Browning? Went to college and wrote a ton of different music constantly! If you could tour with any other band, who would it be and why? We Butter the Bread with Butter. Because they are similar to us and I love their music. And I love Germans. If you were stranded on a mountainside, who’d get eaten first? Collin would be the only person in the band I’d be comfortable eating. So I’d convince everyone to gang up on him. Would you rather have massive hands or feet? Feet so I could swim faster. Catch The Browning at The Anvil on Nov 29

We chatted to bass player Sam Douglas just a few weeks before the biggest tour of their career to date...

Hello Mallory Knox. How are you today? Hello there, we are very well thank you. What a nice & polite way to start an interview!

songs back down to what they were when they were first written. As for a full album i’m not sure, probably not at this moment in time but who knows for the future.

The band is named after a Serial Killer from the film Natural Born Killers, what cereal could you murder in the morning? These days i’m not so much of a cereal man, in fact i’m not that much of a breakfast man which is pretty terrible really but i’ve sometimes enjoyed Frosties now & then on the rare occasion.

We read in a recent interview Mikey jokingly said he had auditioned for Harry Potter. If you could be any film character who would it be & why? I’d probably be that guy from Transformers. I mean who doesn’t want to have friends from another planet that are these huge giant machines & save the world & get to make out with Megan Fox every day for like a year!

Which social networking site is your favourite & why? We know Dave likes using Vine. Dave does like Vine! I think it’s because he craves attention so is loud pretty much all the time & that allows people to watch him whenever he needs to feel loved i guess. I would say twitter for me though. I like how simple it is & you can follow who/what you want & follow your favourite celebrities/football teams/bands. It’s just a great way to keep up to date with whats going on in the world & anything that’s relevant to you. I don’t tend to watch the news anymore because twitter will keep me informed! It’s also a great way to communicate with people that care about our band too. Things have moved extremely quickly for you these last 12 months or so, how do you guys feel about that? It’s been an amazing year. We are all very very grateful for what we’ve been able to achieve, we’ve done some things this year we never thought 5 years ago would have been possible. Saying all that though it still very much feels like it’s only the beginning. Obviously we’ve been a band for 4 years now but this year i guess has kind of felt like the start! How did it feel opening the Main Stage at Reading & Leeds this summer? I really don’t think there is any other way to put it other than saying it really was a dream come true. It’s that show you dream about playing as a kid. I mean my favourite band of all time Blink-182 headlined it a couple of years back. I’ve said it before but if you asked all the bands in the world what stage would they dream of playing a lot of bands would say Main Stage Reading & Leeds. We had all of our family come down, alot of people came to watch us, alot of people having seen us play to 50 people through the years at random shows. It was a special moment & one we will remember for the rest of our lives i’m sure. What have been your other highlights of 2013? I think having our debut album Signals make the Top 40 in the official Album chart. People say facts & figures don’t matter and all that but for 5 lads who live in the ass end of nowhere out in the sticks it’s something we were very proud of. It was one of those things when i was 14 and you told me i’ll be in a band that has a debut album that will hit top 40 on it’s week of release i would have said you’ve got the wrong guy mate.

What has been your favourite album so far this year? Cor, there has been a few but i reckon i’d have to say The 1975 record. I haven’t looked forward to an album coming out that much for years and once i had it i didn’t stop listening to it straight for a month. Do you guys ever play practical jokes on eachother? Got any great stories you can tell us? I think if we didn’t on tour we’d lose our minds. Our humour is very much based on taking the mick out of each other. If we are all together i guarantee at least 1 of us will be being laughed at by the rest of us. It’s not so much a practical joke but i remember touring a few years back, it was one of our first because we were doing the whole sleeping in the van thing & it had rained all day & we had wound Dave up somehow and me & Mikey were out of the van having a chat. Dave was talking to himself under his breath, obviously annoyed at how much we’d been laughing at his expense. Next thing you know he’s trying to get all his sleeping stuff ready for the night & he ends up dropping his only pillow in a puddle and all i remember is him screaming swear word after swear word. I think i laughed so hard i cried. Whats the plan for 2014. New album perhaps? It’s gonna be a busy one i hope but yes a new album is in the works. We are still in the demoing stage right now but we are hoping to have it all ready to record at some point next year! You’re heading out on a headline UK tour in November, what can your fans expect from these shows? Yes we are & i can’t wait. It’s definitely the longest tour we’ve done and some of the biggest venues we’ve ever headlined so it was all a bit daunting but we are so excited about it. It’s going to be the perfect way to end this year, i guess every show is almost going to be a celebration in that sense. We always give it 100 percent & as the crowds get bigger we seem to thrive off it more. So yeah the shows will definitely be longer, but hopefully bigger & better too!

MARIANNE HARRIS

Mallory Knox do acoustic rather well, do you have any plans to make a full acoustic album? It’s something we’ve been focusing on a little more than we used to. The high majority of our songs are written acoustically, well the basic idea of them anyway so i guess it’s kind of easy to strip the

Ed Byrne - Roaring Forties Ed Byrne says he’s a miserable old git. He didn’t celebrate his 40th birthday last year and his new show, Roaring Forties, is partly about the many things in life that annoy him.

Well, not really – he’s planning a celebration in November when his tour reaches Glasgow, the city where his career began 20 years ago after he had studied horticulture at the University of Strathclyde.

The Irish observational comic, who grew up in Swords in Dublin, started re-evaluating his life after that landmark birthday, as you do, and it gave him the idea for Roaring Forties, which is his trademark mix of one-liners and extended anecdotes, and covers a range of subjects from fatherhood and friendships to vasectomies and driving awareness courses . “It’s about getting older,” Byrne says, “about being at an age where you’re not really that old but no one thinks you’re trendy anymore.” Byrne has embraced middle age and reached the conclusion that on the whole people annoy him. “It’s like a spring-clean of my life,” says Byrne, “and I’ve come up with reasons why you can’t be my friend. There are seven billion people on the planet and I only have the time to be friends with 10 of them and so I have to choose carefully.” What are his rules? “It’s the little things that annoy me,” he says. Such as? “People who don’t indicate on roundabouts, people who uses the phrase, ‘Touched a nerve there’, or ‘I’m just making conversation’...” The list runs on.

“But my wife and my family are really funny and Claire understands what goes with the job. Actually she comes off very well and people say our relationship – very sparky, very joshing - comes across. I can’t think of a time when she’s said you can’t use this, but if she did, I’d not use it. “As for the kids, any stuff I do about them I seriously doubt in years to come they’ll hate me for and make me pay for their therapy,” he says with a laugh. “Although I am aware that there’s an age at which you have to be sensitive to their wishes and not embarrass them, but that’s some years off.” Talking of sensitive matters, Byrne finds the funny about having a vasectomy, but he was also under the surgeon’s knife recently when he tried to move a compost bin in his garden and gave himself a hernia. Fans may have seen him exposing his midriff on Graham Norton’s BBC programme to show off his war wounds, but they’re healed now. “It’s all fine, and I’m stronger than ever before,” he says. The Irishman is actually super-fit; a keen hillwalker, he recently climbed Mont Blanc and bags Munros in Scotland. As he is about to mark 20 years in the business, has he noticed any differences in his performances over that time? “One thing that has changed is that I now don’t pretend to think something for the sake of a joke. I mean there’s always comic exaggeration and embroidering a story to make it funnier, but it’s more true to my life now. I used to say I hated kids, for example, and it wasn’t true – I’ve always loved kids and wanted to have them, but that wouldn’t have fitted with the style of comic I was earlier in my career.

“I think being truthful makes it more chancy, but if I take an opinion and try to find a way to make it funny How flexible is he? Could we negotiate if I forget to – even if people don’t agree with me - I think it pays indicate just the once, for instance? “I don’t have time off because audiences know what’s authentic.” for you! If we have to get into a debate about it, then no,” he says, laughing. His fanbase is, he says, “pretty broad” - people of his own age and above, and teenagers who know Being the married father of two young sons (with him from his Mock the Week appearances, while his publicist wife, Claire) has given him lots of new some of his audience is drawn from from his TV things to talk about on stage, but do Claire and his advertisements and occasional acting roles. family, who often appear in his material, ever object? “It’s something that most comics experience,” Byrne Byrne may do more acting as he has some ideas replies. “People know what you do for a living and bubbling away for a sitcom – no doubt one about a then they complain when you mention them in the miserable middle-aged git one of them - and who act, and I’ve certainly had at least one girlfriend in knows if we’ll lose him to the small screen. the past who objected.

ED BYRNE


What are the best and worse things about being on tour? The best thing about being on tour is the time spent on stage. I know that sounds trite or showbizzy but I genuinely enjoy myself while I’m doing stand up. The stuff you’re paying for when you buy your ticket is stuff like the time I spent writing the show, the time I spend sitting in the car, the evenings spent in hotel lobbies eating lousy sandwiches. Also, as a father of two young boys, I quite enjoy getting to have a guilt free lie in. worse thing about being on tour – Traffic. What kind of music do you listen to on the road? Ben, my support act is a bit of a mod and also bit of an ageing punk so bands like The Jam and Wire will get a look in. I’m more of a grunge fan so Pearl Jam and Soundgarden get a regular airing. We also both really enjoy Public Service Broadcasting who are a great new band. Mainly, though we listen to a lot of Radio 4 comedy that I’ve bought like Fags Mags and Bags, Down the Line and The Bob Servant E-mails. All very funny stuff. Do you enjoy working on the festival circuit and why? Do you have a favourite festival? Since becoming a family man I don’t go to the festivals as much as I used to but I used to love feeling like part of a massive global travelling band. You’d do comedy festivals in Montreal, Edinburgh, Kilkenny, Adelaide, Melbourne, Auckland and you’d be bumping into the same faces. Not just the same comics but the same stage crew and promoters too, so you sort of feel at home everywhere. I think Edinburgh would have to be my favourite festival. Can you recommend Farming Simulator 2014? It’s not for everyone, and I have to admit I have now succumbed and bought a copy of Grand Theft Auto V so the ploughing has taken a backseat for now.

ONES TO WATCH

So, who are you and what do you do in the band? Whatsup! I’m Pash, I play guitar and handle the Synths/ Orchestra programming in the band. If you had to invent a new genre that describes your music, what would you call it? I think it’d definitely have to be a phrase coined by our Drummer, James. Theatricore, sums us up pretty well in my opinion. We love over the top stuff sounds and stage shows. Our whole latest album is a theatrical concept story of a couple, ups and downs and life’s trials getting the better of them, so yeah! That’s us. Where have your biggest influences come from? I think for me personally the biggest influences have been Tim Burton movies and crime documentaries. I’m a huge aficionado of the Jack The Ripper case, I just love the mystery about it. Hence the album cover. I guess that comes out in my own weird way in my writing with the band. Anything creepy, I’m all over it.

Saint[the]Sinner formed in 2011 and since then their feet have barely touched the ground. Mixing powerful vocals with metalcore guitars and orchestral sounds has won them a devoted fanbase and in their short tenure they have already picked up support slots with the likes of Glamour of The Kill, Funeral for a Friend and most recently US heavyweights Unearth at The Anvil in December. We expect 2014 to be a big year for these south coast rockers. Catch Saint[the]Sinner with Unearth at The Anvil on Friday 6th December

The music industry is getting more and more difficult for up and coming bands. Are there any particularly important lessons you’ve learned so far? The music industry is one of the most fickle and alarmingly untruthful things to be a part of. I thought when we were starting out it’d be all fun and games. How wrong was I? The best 3 bits of advice I can give to anyone starting out is to network. #1 Get out and meet people, tweet about your band, Facebook about your band, it doesn’t matter who they are, in your head, anyone and everyone needs to know about the music you make and who you are. They’re the building blocks. #2 Trust very few, people say they are... who they aren’t. We’ve been stung a few times by this. #3 Get a job. The industry isn’t how people tell you. You have to invest money into it, to get the rewards out of it. Treat it like starting up a business. If you suddenly became the biggest band in the world, who would you get to support you? If we became the biggest band ever it’d definitely have to be Panic! At The Disco. In my humble little opinion, they’re the best songwriters on the planet. Every single jam they’ve brought out just seems to have that magic you want from music. It’s like discovering them all over again every time you play their CD. Do you have any other hidden talents, other than your musical skills? Well... I ride a pretty mean flatland BMX if I do say so myself... And I can drink a beer bong through my ear, but we won’t go into that. What’s been your biggest achievement as a band so far? I think our biggest achievement has been supporting some of our favourite bands. Notably Funeral For A Friend and A Skylit Drive. We’ve grown up listening to these bands and to share the stage was incredible. The ASD guys were so cool to us as well, the night finished up with us and them hitting back shots in the green room and chatting shit. For me, it was so surreal. Cool though! And finally….why should we come check out your show? You should come and check us out at a show because, we like to party. On and off stage! We pride ourselves on our on stage energy, and making sure you guys and girls have a real good time! For us, it’s all about the energy!
