no I know not neither what a tradition actually means definitively.

I was just commenting that the Americans seem to mean something different to us. And Elfcape seemed to sum up that sort of 'they're wrong cos they ain't like us' belief. In English music, there seems to be a sort conscious reaching back and yearning even, for the past and its certainties.

Like Oscar Wilde said , two nations divided by the same language.

all the best
