It was but a week or so ago that MLC dissed the Gloworms for not making her self-styled category of "top stars". She is also doubtless unaware that one of Laurel Swift's other bands, Gadarene, is going to Austin, Texas, next month along with Jackie Oates, Jim Moray, Olivia Chaney, The Unthanks and Trembling Bells in an English music showcase entitled Looking For A New England. Not a peep from madlizzieseagull about that and why not? Because real, innovative English music ain't her bag. What she wants is "boysies and dumbed-down MOR crap".

Oh, and Colin Cotter is completely right about the type of audience SoH appeal to. Yes, it is sexist and ageist to describe it thus, but it is nevertheless true.
