I wasn't picking on you, and I did explain that my post is the end result of reading a lot of these very prurient posts towards younger people, over an amount of time, not just the end result of reading one thread or one post. My part of the protest wasn't all about you, sorry if you felt that it was...I do get it, and I don't need the caps lock in order to.
I was also agreeing with you in my way, because the folk scene does not contain as much traditional music these days, and as a result I don't like it as much as I used to. They are all still folkies apparently, so maybe I'm not. If Seth is what people like on the folk scene and you don't like him, maybe you're not either. Just a thought, not an attack. Scenes change, definitions change(I have no idea what the 1954 business is all about, maybe it has clarified things on this board though, so I'm not touching it). That was my point too.
Although I don't think Seth is as good as the Pogues (yet, i'll give him time, he's not done), I see and hear no difference between what he does and what they do, it's all rock-based folk music to me. But that, I stress, is just me.
