So one for the older members of the greater Cube community to enjoy. Ex Squaddie, writer, political activist and even Musician Billy Bragg came to The Cube as part of a project dsigned to get guitars into prison to help in the rehabilitation of prisoners: Breaking Rocks
I suggest you check out the very good website.
Anyhow it was great to see lots of old faces, the usual Billy Bragg tour t-shirts from latter years and to hear a couple of ex members of HMP sing some of the songs they’d written with the guitars they’d been given. Billy did a Q&A with film director Alan Milesthat was really interesting and then he played a couple of songs.
This was a really lovely night spent with one of the good guys amongst the usual lovely Cube audience and volunteers.
