Somewhere in the early morning haze between the Shipping Forecast and Farming Today, Radio 4 told the nation that today is the anniversary of Billy the Kid's death. That was just the prompt I needed post this belter from Luke Powers - a slice of steel-drenched and sand scorched Texassee to see us on our way.
Luke Powers - Billy the Kid Rides Again (Buy)
And whilst we're on the subject, here are some other Billy-related treats:
Nic Jones - Billy Don't You Weep For Me (Buy)
Super Furry Animals - Don't be a Fool, Billy (Buy)
Bobbie Gentry - Ode to Billy Joe (Buy) (House point if you can tell me what this song is all about, please)
