Subject: RE: EFDSS awards funding for new music
derek brimstone and alex campbell were great entertainers and their presentation was good and they sang some good songs,hoever some so called contemporary singers who sang in folk ckubs were also pofaced earnest pretentious posers, i do not knopw if nick drake ever sang in folk clubs but he is typical of this genre of folky sounding drivel here is an example of meaningless pretentious modern song.
Three Hours



Three hours from sundown
Jeremy flies
Hoping to keep
The sun from his eyes
East from the city
And down to the cave
In search of a master
In search of a slave

Three hours from London
Jacomo's free
Taking his woes
Down to the sea
In search of a lifetime
To tell when he's home
In search of a story
That's never been known

Three hours from speaking
Everyone's flown
Not wanting to be
Seen on their own
Three hours is needed
To leave from them all
Three hours to wonder
And three hours to fall

Three hours from sundown
Jeremy flies
Hoping to keep
The sun from his eyes
East from the city
And down to the cave
In search of a master
In search of a slave
