My oh my oh my.
This could have been an interesting, informative and evah so erudite thread about:
i) The recording process and its role in/relationship to f*lk music;
ii)The question of whether tradarts should recieve state funding and if so how and for what;
iii) both of the above.
At times it has even threatened to be! Unfortunately it seems to have turned into an attempt to give poor Mr Polshaw a pasting for having the temerity to start the discussion in the first place.
Whats all that about, then? Time to abandon ship, methinks. In any case, I'm listening to PJD's 'Flat Earth', have a venison stew bubbling away on the stove and a decent bottle of red open, so I'm in far too good a mood for all this. May start a couple of new, rancour-free threads aabout the key issues being ignored here, though, in a while.
Happy New Year!
