Billy Bragg, "Handyman Blues"

Though there are some songs of his I genuinely love ("You Woke Up My Neighborhood," "A New England," "The Tears Of My Tracks"), I generally feel like I appreciate Billy Bragg more than I enjoy him. This one's not bad, though, kind of slow and sad, and it features "a host of British comedy legends." Phill Jupitus, Stewart Lee, Neil Morrissey, Ross Noble, Kevin Eldon, Ricky Grover, Samuel West, Johnny Vegas… they're all here. Enjoy.

I've been revisiting "Workers Playtime" a LOT lately and would recommend any and everyone to do the same.

Not sure what it is about him (or me), but for some reason, most of my friends who have been his biggest fans have been as diametrically opposed to his politics as can be.

Ross Noble: One of the few men on earth whose accent is improved when replaced by Billy Bragg's.
