Andy White – Religious Persuasions.

In 1985 Andy White released his debut EP on Stiff Records – Religious Persuasions and whilst it didn’t exactly set the charts on fire it did stroke a chord with those that heard it. John Peel gave the record regular spins on his late night Radio 1 show. A song with fire in its belly challenging political and religious themes, musically sitting somewhere between Dylan and Bragg but with the 80’s swagger of a more venomous Waterboys.

The best testament the song and artist can have is that it still sounds just as good 30 years on from its release. Andy White is a respected – if under achieving artist – and is on tour from tomorrow…
