GUEST,Ewan Spawned A Monster Mark Kermode on Skiffle (39) RE: Mark Kermode on Skiffle 10 Jun 08


So why use those views to attack Mark Kermode who has a clear love of skiffle music and has - I repeat - been playing it with the Railtown Bottlers long before he became a film critic?

In what way has his longstanding immersion in and promotion of skiffle music hurt anyone's career?

When you launch these bitter attacks it really does no-one, including those musicians you claim to speak for - any favours.

Why not tell us (and by us, I mean your public on this forum who read your posts) about the musicians we're missing out on and why we should check them out... like you did to good effect with the excellent John Kelly. Surely that's of far more help to them than this endless sniping.

Just a thought, well intentioned.
