Who's Who at Big Day Out: Billy Bragg


Hail ye raging old man of British folk.

From collaborating with American alt-country heroes Wilco to pushing the boundaries of British folk with his para-political rants, Bragg has been making good ol folk music for a decent 30-years now. And he really doesn't look like he's going to be stopping for tea anytime soon.

In many ways, the man's a punk legend. Just that he does it with an acoustic guitar.

But then again, that's pretty much a loose definition. It's like saying chicken is actually beef only with feathers. Or Godzilla is actually Ultraman but only with kick-ass nuclear breath. Or football is really like tennis only with bigger balls. Or Ryan Adams is actually Bryan Adams, just 100 years younger.

Others believe that the miscreants already have their sources for the exploit code, and that unless information such as this is provided to the community, it will be that much more difficult to defend against attackers, comparable to being blind while under attack
