billy briggs - chew tobacco rag 7 inch texas 1947

now now now. heres a wee gem for yous. mr billy briggs and his orchestra. remember hearing this way back in the seventies in my dads car, with john peel on the radio, going into glasgow to pick up my brother from the apollo. was either 'the damned' or 'the clash' that had been playing (my brother being about 13 at the time, myself being 6). this must have been about 1978. the reason i cant remember which gig it was because there was much fisticuffs on both nights outside the gig. can actually remember 'captain sensible' being put inside the polis van, in his mad fluffy suit et al. anyways...this was played, maybe it was the way home actually, and it brought a smile to our faces and i remember it still to this day. then one day many years later i was in 'paddys market' (glasgows once favourite flea market. now unfortunately closed down) and i found this seven inch. all be it in a later release and unfortunately not the original, which i still have. would have scanned the labels from it but the scanners not working at the moment. then many years later than that i moved to sweden and in a way to try and give up smoking someone recommended chewing tobacco, snus, and ive been hooked ever since. think ive smoked about ten cigarettes after i tried it. then many years after that ive tried to give up snus and i think ive lasted about 3 hours. its so fucking addictive. ive included a picture or so of my favourite snus, general portion, but sometimes i do go for 'lucky strike' if im puckered with cash. to be honest i still take the 't-bag' style and dont go for the more manly loose gear. thank god. anyways, again, this is hillbilly boogie baby at its best. grab your favourite girl onto the dancefloor kinda gear. footstompin aggro. ya beauty..!!
