pirandello The Folk Image (70* d) RE: The Folk Image 22 Apr 07


The first thing which enters people's minds when the words 'folk music' are uttered is women with hairy armpits, earth shoes, ethnic-knit woollens from some collective in Nicaragua, huge wooden earrings and shapeless harem trousers.
For the men it's bad corduroys, beards (naturally), the de rigeur earring, an alarmingly anal repertoir of beer original gravity and a peculiar aversion to electricity. Sandals optional.
Oddly the music never gets a mention...
