THE SPIRIT NEVER DIES (with Billy Bragg and Ed O’Brien)

THE SPIRIT NEVER DIES (with Billy Bragg and Ed O’Brien)

Blaine sits down with one of his favourite guitarists, Ed O’Brien from the band Radiohead, to discuss feeling re-politicised for the first time since both attending the ‘Stop the War’ March in 2003, the social significance of Acid House, and ‘finding your tribe’ at Glastonbury. This week’s opening thought features the ‘Bard of Barking’ Billy Bragg ruminating on the power of music to change the world, recorded especially for TWFF. It is a true privilege to have the ‘punk poet laureate of protest’ on the show.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
