Thread Name: The current state of folk music in UK
Subject: RE: The current state of folk music in UK
Jim - we know you have a bee in your bonnet about the corporate music industry,
and media representation of Folk...
Guess wot...
So do I, and probably most other mudcatters.

Your complaints are largely justified, and we agree..

So having established that..
It is a very important consideration,
but in this thread perhaps not the most vital right now...

""Sorry P - I don't see how handing our music back to the industry we we used it to escape from is carrying on anything"

I seriously doubt any of us advocate annything at all like that, directly or tacitly,
and would resist such surrender as best we could...

So imho it's pointless you constantly raising that complaint with us,
and at worst a distraction from what we are really trying to discover
through discussion...

I've had a quick look, and I can't see any music biz sell outs amongst us..
nope.. no sign of a rolls royce or diamond studded gold tooth veneers...
