Dave Swarbrick solo

Indeed, but it's a terrible shame when he doesn't include a song or two. Remember Now Be Thankful and the entire John Babbacombe Lee album.

It is, equally, quite tragic when a band is coerced by "convention" into vocals when none of them is experienced enough to handle it. It's a bit like the comedian on Sunday Night At The London Palladium ending the act with a song just because all the others do.

I think it's fabulous that Spiro is nominated and look forward to bands such as Methera, Stocai and Wistman's Wood getting much greater attention.
