Thread Name: Self righteous prats
Subject: RE: Self righteous prats
Ok I'm up for this.

1) Bill I hope those folk prats were not pomms. If they were send em back to where they came from. We'll tell them where to put their sanctimonious claptrap. Though I thought Aussies were good enough at that - where's the fight in ya.

2) Folk Prat Type 2. Usually bearded blokes who run folk clubs that are soooo traditional that unless your floor spot is a turgid ballad with 93 verses sung ala Ewan MacColl with your eyes shut and your finger in your ear you get frowned at and ignored for the rest of the evening and not asked to sing again. Transport them I say.

3) Part Type 4 Again blokes, usually young, who complain that the folk club audience only like old stuff and he only does his own stuff and he doesn't do covers.
