Discount were 2nd tier members of the hard-touring, wildly-prolific indie-punk underground of the nineties but by now they are just the first entry on Alison Mosshart's (The Kills, The Dead Weather) resume. So around the time they were releasing split singles with J Church, touring on the cheap and sleeping on floors the band stopped to cover five Billy Bragg songs for this 1998 E.P. on Fueled By Ramen Records, Love, Billy. The covers give a a bashing American pop-punk reading to some less obvious Bragg songs (only "Help Save the Youth of America" is from his foundational period).
You can let us know what you think of these Bragg covers in the COMMENTS section(where you'll find the Love, Billy link).
MRML is a blog about the devestating effects of culture: music, politics, comics plus etc. blah blah blah. At times MRML will post fine, unpurchasable three-chord obscurica (punk, pop-punk, new wave, mod, power-pop, gospel, reggae, hardcore, rockabilly, folk, country...whatever.) - - - - - - "The otherwise unavailable files in this blog are posted for a limited time and are intended for educational, non-commercial use.
