Thread Name: HOMOPHOBIA in British Folk Movement
Subject: RE: HOMOPHOBIA in British Folk Movement

I haven't heard the Condom Song. I think my favourite so far of Mitch's songs (which I heard for the first time in the Saturday lunchtime singaround in the Plough last Whitby Folk Week) is the blues song about a man with a speech impediment who is trying to assemble a DIY flatpack. It really brings home the problems of trying to assemble flatpacks from instructions written by people for whom English is not their first language. I'm trying to persuade Graeme Knights to sing it (on Monday at Herga he sang Mitch's song about the geriatric rock and rollers, to the tune of "Putting on the Agony").
