Date: 24 Mar 09 - 01:55 PM

Don't know if anyone has mentioned this, but in case not, take a look at this fRoots Letters thread. Clicking on the first link mentuioned in the thread will take you to a very cleverly constructed fake Mudcat. Other links will lead to other bits not without a certain puerile humour. There is a very good anagram, which may be familiar to most English folkies, of Elmer P Bleaty for the late lamented singer who did indeed sing like a goat. But do explore all the links and stuff.
Direct Link to Mud-E-Ceilidh

Peter Bellamy did not sing like a goat,he was a fine interpreter of songs,.
at least he wasnt a blues singer,who sounded like a polite Putney toff,and about as raunchy as Barry Manilow.
when Bellamy did sing the blues he sang with some balls.

Earlier in the thread, Dan Schatz provides a direct link. It does not go to fRoots, so you need not be afraid of being contaminated or insulted!

That's the other brilliant thing about this site, the drawing!

I'm ashamed to say it has taken me 48 hours, until just now, to realise who Josi Teacake is.. though I got Jimmy Oar straight away

I know the perpetrator of this Fandango personally. I'll spare his blushes, but, he is a fine club organiser, who has worked tirelessly in his home town for donkeys years.
Also a fine cartoonist and illustrator.
Mr Ignobody went into semi retirement many years ago. Glad to see he's back!
And I also know that Peter Bellamy was proud and delighted with his moniker!
It's just a gentle piss take...(but some of the thread titles on Mud-E-Ceilidh, wouldn't look out of place here!!!!).
In these straightened times, surely we can all laugh at ourselves, can't we?
Will continue to see what our lampoonist comes up with next.

"The drawing of Boden and Spiers is indeed masterly" As is the drawing of Lauren McCormick and Emily Portman (formerly of "The Devils Interval"). And the recasting of Mawkin Causley as "Male Saucy Wink" apposite in the extreme.

"I presume Josi Teacake is our own Ruth Archer under another name" Err, no, the letters don't add up. Look a bit closer to your own home county, think younger, and sibling to "Jimmy Oar"

Dick.
Just to put the record straight. "Borfolk" has nothing to do with fRoots magazine, apart from a tangential connection with it's predecessor "Southern Rag" .
The site owner is a well respected club, concert, and dance organiser in Southern England. To the extent of having recieved an award from the EFDSS last year for his lifelong contributions to the folk scene.
Artists that have been subjected to his gentle wit, have taken his parodies with great good humour...(The bugger hasn't done me yet!).
You seem to have a personal problem with fRoots.
Do us all a favour, and kindly keep it to yourself.
And, don't involve Mr Ignobody.
As I said earlier, It's just a bit of harmless fun. Save your personal attacks for another place.

"no, it has been leapt on by froots to get people to visit his site"

1. it hasn't been "leapt on". It's been linked to, just as it has been here

2. the parody doesn't "promote" anything, but if it could be said to be "promoting" anything, that thing would be mudcat

3. as there's no weblink from that parody to the fRoots website, it can't be said that linking to it it is a way to get anyone to visit the it, any more than posting a link to it here can be said to be a way of getting anyone to visit *this* website

I am not sure it is harmless fun,as a matter of fact I have always thought the cartoons portrayed the uk folk club scene in a very negative way[probably not the cartoonists intention].
but something that would undoubtedly appeal to anyone who was anti folk clubs,and anti Mudcat, which might be a possible explanation for their promotion,would they be promoted by froots if it was froots who was being satirised,I dont think so,from my own personal experience,criticism is not something he[not the cartoonist] encourages.

Like Ralphie I also know the individual who created the website under discussion, and can confirm that he cares deeply about folk and the traditional arts, and is a tireless worker in the area of promoting music, dance and song in the South East of England. And has been for many years.

I would point out for those who seem to have taken this as a dig at Mudcat, that the name of the forum which has been chosen is MudE celidh ... please note that ECeilidh is another organisation that also exists on the web, should you not be aware of it. Additionally, the MudECeilidh item is one page only on a site which is quite clearly indicated as under construction. Mr Ingnobody has already told me that it is being slowly expanded. And no doubt it will _have_ to be slowly as he holds down a very responsible full time job, as well as running a club, concerts, and dances,providing assistance with a certain large annual folk festival in one way or another each year, and trying to lead a life as well.

The site is unconnected with fRoots, except insofar as Mr Ingnobody was connected with its predecessor, Southern Rag... and if you care to look at the bylines on each page of the website, you will see that construction started in October last year. The editor of fRoots has only just picked it up ... if it was a publicity stunt for that magazine, I think he might have highlighted it well before now!! (Come to that the name of the perpetrator is extremely obvious on the website, if you care to look at it properly!!)

As to Capn's comments about Peter Bellamy (Elmer P Bleaty), it is my understanding that he loved his new name, and even went so far as to request the original of the cartoon that went with it. And in response to his comment that "I have always thought the cartoons portrayed the uk folk club scene in a very negative way[probably not the cartoonists intention]." ... I've always thought that they were hilarious as they bring out the exact nature of oh so many clubs and individuals that can be seen around the English folk scene ... but with a great degree of fondness.

I wonder if Mr Ingnobody knows what a storm in a teacup he has created {grin} - must tell him!!!

For Gawds sake....even the people who run this place got the joke, parody is the sincerest form of flattery after all.

And I'm sure that Mssrs Spiers and Boden would love framed copies of their cartoon hanging in their respective Lavs.

Now Mr Ignobody....Where is the Housewives Choice cartoon Eh Eh???

folk clubs are portrayed as three men and a dog,with an incompetent organiser.
in fact many folk clubs are successful and well attended,quite a few have been going 30 40 years,and are well organised.
Topic Folk club,Swindon folk club,Bothy folk club,Leigh ON sea folk club ,both the Lewes clubs,Swinton Folk club,Faversham Folk club,Bodmin folk club,Stockton folk club ,Welly folk club, South Shields,Sharps folk club,Liverpool Everyman folk club,Faldingworth., Kiveton Park and many more.
   as they bring out the exact nature of oh so many clubs and individuals that can be seen around the English folk scene ... but with a great degree of fondness.
no cant agree,his cartoons depict a tiny minority,that dont survive long.Apologies to any clubs I have left out
