Subject: RE: 2008 R2 Young Folk Award - What Happened
Just skimming this very rapidly and no, I can't be arsed to reply to everyone personally. So generally, yes I do think people should have the courtesy to find out about an artist and listen to them before whingeing about how they're quite sure they won't like them and they're not"f*lk" (whatever the fuck THAT means nowadays) anyway.
Somebody or other that I've never heard of thinks that being around on the fringes somewhere for x years gives him the right to slag off anybody he feels like. No, it doesn't. Speaking for myself, I never talk about anything or anyone without having first acquired considerable knowledge. No, I don't write professionally any more (nor have I, either, anything to do with the BBC nowadays). So I scribble down answers to queries on fora. For the edification of those who actually want to know. Not for the baying mob of last century, narrow-minded, hey nonnies in tie-dyes to whom professionalism is anathema and experimentation and innovation words that they cannot spell but sneer at anyway.
