Weird music - Talking with the Taxman about Poetry 1986 by Billy Bragg

This is Billy Bragg's 3rd album.  The title is from a poem by Vladimir Mayakovsky – a Soviet era poet.

The tracks on the album were diverse – mostly written by Bragg himself but also tracks by Bob Dylan, Gram Parsons and Smokey Robinson.

Bragg is a left leaning political activist.  He is now 61.
