I saw Billy Bragg in NYC back on 1989. Seventeen years ago. I'm amazed how hammered I got and lost rationality through my years. You have this early idealism and then drift off to apathy. Sad but to listen to these tunes, it's pretty reaffriming to just pick yourself up, get back up. If you ever tried vegetarism and I'm talking about completely vegan, you know what I mean about personal clarity. I'm not talking about fasting but eating five square vegan meals a day for a few days. I feel the same way listening to Billy Bragg, some 17 years later. "Good God", I've been such a foolish clown.
