Chuck Prophet, whose new album “Bobby Fuller Died for Your Sins” came out a few days ago (and which we reviewed rather glowingly) popped into the Andrew Marr Show yesterday morning to play the song Bad Year for Rock and Roll from that record which you can watch over on the iPlayer here. The clue is in the name for the song’s theme, reading like a gloomy roll call. Chuck is in the middle of a series of UK dates at the moment – you’ve still got time to catch him in Bristol’s Tunnels tonight and London’s Garage tomorrow evening. Or if you don’t want to risk the chance of seeing Liz Truss talking about Brexit, you can at least hear the song in all its original glory below.
