Subject: RE: Show Of Hands - over the top?-Arrogance, Ignorance
One of the crosses that SoH has to bear is that section of their fanbase that sits primly in coaches as per a Women's Institute outing and files into the Albert Hall. But as I never fail to give them credit for, they have had rather more worthy projects and doubtless will do again.

As for the Oysterband, I think most contributors were at the Union Chapel or other gigs of last year's tour, so the posting of a vid (and still less referring to them in such derogatory terms) is really quite unnecessary. Shame you didn't see them (or even have heard of them) when they were Fiddlers' Dram. Now that might have coincided more with your taste.

Banging on about having seen the Smiffs once does not equate at all with hearing the Gloworms' music (especially as it was probably Ian Dedic playing). As for exactly when you dissed their work in much the same fashion as you did that of Ms Flash without a listen, see my post of 0650 relating to my disinclination to trawl through the cesspit of scribblings on any and every subject about which you know sod all.

Those who can, do, and those who don't, complain

The quotation is actually "teach", not "complain". But we all know what you think of the teaching profession, don't we?
