ALTROK Ordinals 35
BILLY BRAGG & THE BLOKES England, Half English (Elektra)
Billy (without Wilco) is still singing and writing about the common man,
the unnoticed, the unaccounted for.
CONCRETE BLONDE Group Therapy (Manifesto)
Concrete Blonde have reunited (and it feels so good) with the original
lineup. First new record in many years. You do remember the song "Joey",
GREAT BIG SEA Sea Of No Cares (Zoe/Rounder)
From Newfoundland, Canada. Have been making records since 1992. This is
their 7th album. "a high spirited and richly expressive acoustic quartet
who reinvent traditional Newfoundland music, lending it a powerful and
resonant contemporary charge."
