A Rough Trade, Mojo and FT Book of the Year SHORTLISTED FOR THE PENDERYN MUSIC BOOK PRIZE Emerging from the jazz clubs of the early 1950s, skiffle - a uniquely British take on American folk and blues - caused a sensation among a generation of kids who had grown up during the dreary post-war years. Teenagers were looking for a music of their own in a culture dominated by crooners and mediated by a stuffy BBC. Against a backdrop of Cold War politics, rock and roll riots and a newly assertive working-class youth, Billy Bragg charts - for the first time in depth - the history, impact and legacy of a movement that sparked a revolution and shaped pop culture as we have come to know it.

About the Author

Stephen William "Billy" Bragg is an English singer-songwriter and left-wing activist. His music blends elements of folk music, punk rock and protest songs, with lyrics that mostly span political or romantic themes. Billy s music is heavily centred on bringing about change and getting the younger generation involved in activist causes. For the entirety of Bragg s 30-year-plus recording career he has been involved with grassroots political movements, and this is often reflected in his lyrics. Bragg said in an interview: "I don t mind being labelled a political songwriter. The thing that troubles me is being dismissed as a political songwriter."
