Bob Bolton Lyr Add: (Corrected?) Factory Lad (Colin Dryden) (41) RE: Lyr Add: (Corrected?) Factory Lad (Colin Dryden) 05 Aug 13

G'day Davo,

I've been aware of Dermott's site for a long time ... but I never actively chased anyone else's memory of the Factory Lad.

Dermott's posting is a lot closer to my memory ( and Chris Kempster's) ... than the DT lyrics, and it may be from some reworking by Colin Dryden ... but not one from the era I remember!

There may also be "language difficulties" between:

North of England / industrial ...

Australian / working class ...

American / vernacular ...

Anywhere / post pub sessions memory ...

Have we reached the point where we are examining the folklore transmission within the very ranks of those seeking to record / refine / define the tradition(al materials) ... ?
