About Don't Try This at Home

Don't Try This at Home is the sixth full-length album by urban folk artist Billy Bragg. "Sexuality" was released as a single which reached #27 on the UK charts and #2 on the U. S. Modern Rock charts. Johnny Marr of The Smiths co-wrote "Sexuality" and helped to produce two tracks. The song "Cindy of a Thousand Lives" is about photographer Cindy Sherman. "Tank Park Salute" is about his father, Dennis Bragg, who died of lung cancer when Bragg was 18. He said that for a show in Barking, where he grew up, he was so moved by the presence of his mother and brother in the audience that he kept a copy of the lyrics in case he forgot them while performing. R. E. M.'s Michael Stipe and Peter Buck contribute to "You Woke Up My Neighbourhood." "Dolphins" is a cover of the Fred Neil song. The song "God's Footballer" is about former professional football player Peter Knowles who spent his career at Wolverhampton Wanderers before voluntarily ending his football career to become a Jehovah's Witness.
