After a year of both sold-out gigs and death threats, it’s little wonder that Frank Turner’s fifth solo album finds him in reflective form. The English troubadour tells us why Mick Jagger is a fraud and why he won’t touch Margaret Thatcher “with a fucking bargepole!”
It’s several days after the Iron Lady’s death and, if it’s quite alright, the outspoken songwriter behind 2006’s ‘Thatcher Fucked The Kids’ is keeping mum. Home in London after a “nightmare” journey back from New Zealand and dealing with “constructive jet-lag”, he lets out a weary laugh when I rightly assume his phone has been ringing all week.
Tape Deck Heart is out now.
