Billy Bragg Biography - Left-Wing Lyricist
This Barking-born artist realised at a young age that his only chance of getting out of Essex was to do something different with his life, so while his friends enrolled to work at the local car factory, he moved to London to embark on a music career. He joined the punk rock band Riff Raff in 1977 and paid his dues on the pub and club circuit. His big break as a solo artist came by chance, when he bought the radio DJ John Peel some lunch and handed him a demo tape. His album Life's a Riot with Spy vs Spy became a hit on the airwaves, paving the way for a record contract with Virgin Records. In the 1980s, the Barking boy became one of the most popular artists in the UK with a huge cult fan base spanning the country.
He has shared the stage with some of the most important music artists in history, including The Clash at the epochal Rock Against Racism festival in 1978 and his many albums have continued to influence modern artists.
