Thread Name: Dilemma with 'Siul A Ruin'
Subject: RE: Dilemma with 'Siul A Ruin'
I have just come back from a night at my folk club where The Wheeze and Suck Band were playing, and the highlight of the night, without a doubt, was their arrangement of this, with a haunting guitar and violin introduction. They actually called it "Johnny's gone for a soldier", and at the end, went straight into "Over the Hills and Far Away", as an anti-war statement. I don't know how authentic it was, and I don't care, because as far as I am concerned, this was the best treatment of the song I have EVER heard. It's been a long time since a song has given me goose bumps like this one. They haven't recorded it yet, but when they do, I will be the first in line.
