Thread Name: Show Of Hands - over the top?-Arrogance, Ignorance
Subject: RE: Show Of Hands - over the top?-Arrogance, Ignorance
Well I have been finding out some more about Show of Hands and I now have changed my mind about them a little bit as I have seen a lot of them playing on such Websites as YOU TUBE (which is a brilliant Website)on which they have done some really good Folk songs. So it seems they are quite popular and have a lot of fans,because of the way they put things over, with there singing and one of them is really good on the fiddle.

I still think that vandelism is not good and what they did was "over the top" but there song is about how the banks etc caused so many problems in the country and alot of people are quite upset too about them. Its like the old "protest" songs that Donovan and Bob Dylan used to write about. Mind you not all Folk groups were like that, eg the Spinners,the Yetties etc or Simon and Garfunkle.

I have also seen that they might get an award by the BBC,which I will definatly vote for them, and I hope that some of the people who have written here might too, especially there fans like "Borchester Echo", "aeola" and Noreen.

And I hope that people who don't like them,eg "mandotim", "bubblyrat" and Lizzie Cornish etc etc might check the Internet a bit more to change there minds like I did.
