Thread Name: What is psych folk...?
Subject: RE: What is psych folk...?
Much taken with the term Folk Horror as used by Mark Gatis last night on BBC4 with respect of The Wicker Man, Blood on Satan's Claw and Witchfinder General. How much of this filters though into the Psych Scene today I ask myself rhetorically? The Owl Service nod in the direction of MR James and even the theme music of my favourite sitcom comes from an album of Wicker Man tributes:

Other examples of Folk Horror? Children of the Stones, Worzel Gummidge, The Daemons (Dr Who), Catweazel, Sky, pretty much anything by Nigel Kneale...
