Between the Wars (EP)
|Between The Wars|
|EP by Billy Bragg|
|Genre||Folk punk, protest song|
The title track was inspired by the UK miners' strike (1984–1985). The choice of other songs on the record was also relevant to the dispute - "Which Side Are You On?" is an American pro-trade union song from the 1930s, whilst Bragg's own composition "It Says Here" is critical of the political bias of British newspapers, most of which opposed the strike.
The proceeds from sales of the record were donated to the striking miners' fund.
All tracks composed by Billy Bragg; except where indicated
