Here are a few selections. One of the first albums I bought was an EP by Billy Bragg who was one of the musical architects of socialist rebellion in the 80's. Remember socialism....Anyway, here he is at the NME awards playing his best known anthem New England with Kate Nash ( to warn you it does have an expletive in the song). His new album is called Mr Love and Justice
Because I bigged up a Danish band Tina Dico, I thought Sweden might feel a bit left out. This band are called Raymond and Maria and I have no idea what they are singing about but I love it.
And check out REM in the Radio 1 Live Lounge. You've got to love the acoustic bass. And to finish.....KT Tunstall in the Live Lounge.
