GUEST,Sidewinder. punkfolkrocker, question? (37) RE: punkfolkrocker, question? 31 Jan 05

For me:- The Punk Ethos is we can't play, we can't sing, we can't dance and we can't perform. We don't care whether you like it or not we are going to do it all, and more, simply because we can! "And We Don't Care".In a world of manufactured and classically schooled manipulated automotons with ostentatious and gregarious appetites for pomp circus rockola, it is somewhat refreshing to think there are kids strong willed enough to say "up yours!" to the powerbrokers of the music marketeers and "we'll do it for ourselves rather than buy your toothless pap".Whereas, your folk credentials are "I can tune to 12 different keys, I know what to do with a capo and the counter melody is as relevant to the song as the lead".You can see from this where I have the problem bringing the two together in any cohesive representation of a true hybrid.
