Sam, who I talked about the other day, has given me permission to release one of his songs into the wild. So I’ve chosen “The Dirty 13,” because I think it best exemplifies his ability to cram a novella into three minutes. Just him and a guitar — an angrier, wittier Billy Bragg is one way to approximate his style, though that’s far from exact, and he’s a lot more original than that.
You can find out all about Sam, including his British tour dates (which have to be seen to be believed), at his MySpace page. The following mp3 will be up for seven days only. Please give it a listen.
