Subject: RE: Discussion: Ian Dury
I suppose there is a recognised community of punks, I don't know enough about it.
I do think there are still some semi-traditional singers in the old tradition in the UK, but the most thriving tradition in the country is with the British Asian community who have some very accomplished singers who are traditional by any yardstick. I would like to think that the songs will be collected in the future, by someone with the correct knowledge. We also need to accept the songs as part of the diverse traditions of the UK if we don't already. I bet Ian Dury would approve.
