Billy Bragg sings about subs

As the latest submarine hunt goes on in the Stockholm archipelago,  I suspect that several of us will be dusting off our copies of Mr Bragg’s fine 1991 album Don’t try this at home,  listening to Sexuality and having a very strong sense of deja vu:

A nuclear submarine sinks off the coast of Sweden

Headlines give me headaches when I read them

A very fine song, co-written by Johnny Marr of The Smiths, as the music nerds among you will know.  If you’ve never see Billy Bragg live, you have missed a treat. I suspect this will be back on his setlist.

I wonder if they are playing Sexuality out at FOI where Gary and I once did quite a bit of teaching. They will be working their socks off just now!
