Well we've all heard of them, but that doesn't stop them being bland and boring.....I have a huge collection of vinyl LPs from the heyday of this music, Bothy Ballads, Irish,Scottish and English Trad, Some of the better writers from the 80's and 90's, but I honestly cant get enthusiastic about any of the new generation. The guts has gone out of the music it now seems to be controlled by an elite....you've all heard them, talking shit.....they are as far away from "the people" as you can get......they haven't a fucking clue about what makes the music so special.
It just makes me sad that the "beige" is enveloping everything.
