Skiffle: The Most Influential Music You’ve Never Heard of



BRADY O’CALLAHAN Sep 1


What do The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Who and The Rolling Stones have in common? Members of all of these legendary rock bands were once part of skiffle groups. What does the majority of the world’s population have in common? It hasn’t ever heard of skiffle. BilIy Bragg is here to change that with his new book, Roots, Radicals and Rockers: How Skiffle Changed the World.

“What rap did that was impressive was to show there are so many tone-deaf people out there,” he says. “All they need is a drum beat and somebody yelling over it and they’re happy. There’s an enormous market for people who can’t tell one note from another.” - Keef

I've heard of skiffle before from reading about the beginnings of the Beatles and the Stones but I've never heard any of the music itself. What was it like? Anyone got a link?
