Bragg, rhubarb and Wyatt

I am really looking forward to Billy Bragg's "Mr. Love and Justice", out on Cooking Vinyl 3 March. On his website he tells how he met Robert Wyatt over some fresh rhubarb, and that obviously resulted in sweet music. "I hadn't seen him since Red Wedge (the 1986 Labour Party youth vote initiative)," says Bragg. "He found me some rhubarb and then came along to the recording session and sang beautiful vocals to the chorus of 'I Keep Faith' – it was like angels singing!" The record will also be made as a deluxe solo album. Billy Bragg is touring Europe and UK to promote the album.
