When Billy Bragg struck out on his own after mustering out of the British Army (and his short-lived punk band Riff Raff), he set out to be a one-man version of the Clash, and his first recorded salvo is nearly as strong a statement of purpose as the Clash's self-titled debut
Billy Bragg's relative anonymity coupled with his fervent fanbase has lead him to be rightfully crowned something of a cult hero- whilst nothing short of a personality, his candidness lends itself to a rather underground phenomenon that would otherwise be tainted were it in the limelight. With his Birmingham drawl exposing tales of dead romance and political rhetoric, Bragg's success lies in the humiliated and deprecated way in which he handles his subject- just as soon he preaches Marxism, he'll match it with a sense of loathing and self-doubt

Combining this mini-album with his first full length, Brewing Up with Billy Bragg and the Between the Wars EP gives you all of Bragg’s essential earliest work in one place. Completists are best served by the 2006 re-issue of Life’s a Riot whose 11-track bonus disc includes live staples "A13 Trunk Road to the Sea" (his take on Route 66 ), a ripping cover of John Cale's "Fear Is a Man's Best Friend", as well as a treasure trove alternate versions and unreleased songs from the. same period
