Subject: Show Of Hands - bad for folk music
From: taddylad
Date: 26 Jan 10 - 11:31 AM

I see that Show Of Hands have done a video of themselves on the internet plastering self-publicity over buildings in London about their new record. I thought they were supposed to be a folk-singing group and I think this will do a lot of damage to the image of english folk music which is very highly thought of and does not need this blatent vandalism.

This is outrageous! We can't have folk music entering the world of popular culture! It doesn't belong to ordinary people, it belongs to us! What would Ewan have thought? Heaven forbid that someone might try to make a living out of this music; surely anyone who sings this sort of thing should be one of us, with independent means! Next thing you know we'll have oiks with guitars in our folk clubs...er...hang on...

I havn't used the Internet much before but I was delighted to find so many interesting things about folk music on a Website like this, which I was told about by people as being very relavant to Folk Music which I have been listening to for a long time and I have been to folk clubs quite a lot, but I have been quite suprised by some of the rubbish which this Website has been quoting.
For example Mr Borchester Echo says I am bigging up Show of hands when in fact I think really that they're publicity stunt is bringing folk music into disrapute by causing people to complain about litter and sticking posters up on public property, all because they want to advertise themselves like some pop band.As I said i have been to a lot of folk clubs for a long time and even spoke to (and I got their autographs)from some famous groups like the Yetties but a lot of people, for example some people I work with think, that folk music is quite respectible.
And Mr John Mackenzie I would like to ask how much you know about me as you say I am from London but I am a proud Yorkshireman, from Tadcaster which as you obviously don't know is known as Taddy, so ha ha you don't know that much.

Well, I guess I wouldn't call "Arogance, Ignorance, and Greed" a "folk" songs, so I have no purist folkie expectations for it. Nonetheless, it seems to be a good song, and I think the video is well-produced.

Wondering why there's always such controversy about Show of Hands, I played several cuts on Spotify. I found I liked some, and didn't like others. But no, they're not pure folk, so why expect them to be? If Cyril Tawney had acted like Show of Hands, I might have been distressed. If Show of Hands acts like a commercial group, that's OK with me.

Is Taddylad trolling? Maybe, maybe not. The objectionable posts in this thread come from others, who ought to know better.

In other words don't fuel his fire because you will just waste your breath and time and it's not worth it.

Well, it took forever to load, and I have broadband, but I liked it. Not folk, but it's got a nice upbeat sound. Has anyone actually *seen* the handbills posted all over as in the video? Looks like a set up for the video, to me. Even so...there's nothing wrong with promoting one's work, imo.

bigging up

If the crumpled goats want to self-promote they can, and do. I'd prefer it personally if they pursued their other projects since, as is very well known, the only thing I don't like that much about Beer & Knightley is SoH. They can, and have, done much better, musically.

One of the folk scene's problems is that everyone is so self-serious and, as we see on a daily basis on here especially in this thread, have little sense of humour or irony. Taddylad's original post is clearly a wind-up and if we were in any doubt, his second one surely confirms it, with its amusing lack of grammar. So who's the perpetrator? Who'd want to bring attention to the video? He has form for this sort of thing so surely it's obvious - it must be a very effective piece of self-publicity. So I'll doff my cap to... Mr Steve Knightley.

Why is it that some mudcatters seem to think music can't fit into the genre 'folk' if it is successful and people are actually making money out of it? Sounds a bit like sour grapes to me. Social comment has always been at the heart of 'folk' songs and SoH perpetuate this in a modern style, appreciated by a huge following of young (and not so young)people as can be seen at their festival appearances. We can't have it both ways - either we accept new ways of doing folk or we watch the whole tradition disappear.

I had far more respect for Show of Who when they weren't bowing and kowtowing to The Traddies, but standing on stage saying how much they weren't like that..

Er...then it all changed....

Still, at least The Traddies are now getting some good recordings from Phil..and many of their favourite artists have been given opportunities by Show of Who....

Who'd a thunk it, eh?

I haven't bought this CD...but I've heard the title track and it's good.


Erm, are Show of Who booked for Cecil Sharpley House yet?

Lizzie, when you write provocative posts like that, people like Ian and Joan won't write about SOH. When they do write about them, you gloat, just like you did when Diane put the link in. Just like you do every time Ian mentions Seth Lakeman.

Personal feuds are best slugged out in a car-park somewhere, no weapons, but kicking, gouging and biting permitted.

Public fora are not the right place for personal battles to be pursued. Such puerile antics show all of the participants in a singularly bad light, and detract from the value of discussion, and subject matters in hand.

Many of us are heartily sick and tired of pugnacious and insulting postings by people whom, I strongly suspect, would defecate in their underwear if someone offered them 'outside'.

For God's sake GROW UP, the lot of you, or it'll be bed at six WITH NO SUPPER!

Hey, I think it's great that Ian's become a Seth fan! Especially after he tried to hinder his career...and...of course...FAR be it from me to suggest that fRoots use Seth's good looks to sell their magazine...Oh no no no no no.........nooooooooo

And as for 'Mary Brennan'...yeah, right...

Oh come on now, Mary, I'm sure, you be a visitor to the fRoots board an' all, as well as once upon a time to my myspace page, know how all the usual gang said how much they now respected Show of Who, after Steve and Phil said what they did....

Shame they don't respect their music, huh?

I did, but I have to respect both the artist AND the music for the inspirational thoughts to flow, otherwise, they stop dead.

I do find it intriguing though as to WHY, after nearly SIX years of me yattering on about Show of Who, and bringing people into their music, as has been said to me over and again, WHY it took them so long to stand up and tell me they preferred the 'vitriol' to my supportive words.   

I'd hate to think it was to keep in with the Traddies, with the new recordings that are happening, because hell, that would be so hypocritical....but...hey ho...

Six Years is a long time in Journalism, as they do say....
