Visit yesterday to the BHF shop in town..  Frank Turner - Sleep is for the week 99p.  
Bought it based on comments here.  One listen through so far, not sure i am convinced, but will give it another few listens.  Sounded to me a bit like a sweary  Billy Bragg, which may not be a bad thing.

Some of you who enjoy the 'wyrd' side of folk will know of this...but a 4LP boxed version of it delivered to the UK for a fraction over £18?

Thanks for the heads up David
Have this in my Spotify library but will be great to own the vinyl box set.
Looks like a bargain to me. Smiley

Thanks very much David.  Much of it is unknown to me but has to be worth a go at that price.

I think there's 4 in total, all of which I have (on CD).  A fifth was mentioned, but not sure if it ever got released.  Sadly, there was all sorts of bad vibes about the series because one or two of the artists (and I do mean one or two) have rather challenging political opinions....

Yep, Far Right stuff...there's a weird crossover point with some of the very furthest reaches of the Wyrd Folk people.  It's a tiny minority, of course... e.g. Tony Wakeford of Sol Invictus was a member of the BNP in the 80's...and has never really renounced such views.  I was going to say it's not black and white (hmmm) but, really, it is.

Hmm, a quick google of Mr Wakeford doesn't make for particularly pleasant reading does it.  Still, as you say, a minority, and it shouldn't be allowed to invalidate, or whatever a better word would be, the remainder of the music.

Quite different to his later records, but the foundations are there...
