Subject: BS: Mudcat came up at a gig.
From: Jayto
Date: 18 Mar 09 - 11:14 AM

I was at a gig last night and someone brought up Mudcat. I asked him if he got on here often and he replied no. He said he got on here to get lyrics. He said if Mudcat didn't have it then noone would. I have never had anyone bring it up before. I was glad to hear it so I thought I would post it on here. Has anyone else been caught off guard by someone mentioning mudcat?

I often mention it. Spread the good news!
Most folk clubs I visit have tables with 'flyers' for other clubs. What we need is a generic Mudcat Flyer, neatly planned so that it is readable on A5. Joe Offer did something similar for a group Stateside recently. What would we need here?
I'm quite happy to print something out and distribute it wherever I am!

Thoughts?

I often run into people who know about Mudcat - most of them have come across it in their search for lyrics. Some never open the threads and others just lurk. I think there are a lot of regular lurkers out there!

I don't "gig" myself, but I've heard performers (so far, none who happen to be mudcat regulars) and fellow audience members mention looking in on the site on several occasions.

For me it was the other way round - instead of finding that people I knew or met had heard of mudcat, I found mudcat and gradually discovered that a number of mudcatters were people I knew or had met.

No, between first & second fingers, you can wave it at other mudcatters from the stage!

My Kent and SE London folkie friends are regular (well some of them not very regular) Catters. They are the ones who told me to join Mudcat.
Most of my Essex folk acquaintences aren't into PCs, I guess. When I mention Mudcat, I get blank stares. I stopped talking about it in Essex some time ago.

I like the idea of a Mudcat Crew Tatoo.

No need for a tattoo. I just keep an old catfish inside my fly. I unzip and toss it into the trough before I urinate on it.

I heard about Mudcat at Whitby festival 8 or 9 years ago, and joined, and a) discovered that lots of people I already knew from the British folk scene were involved and b) got to know about non-British folkies from all over the place....

The "Mudcat secret handshake" was established over a decade ago....in a thread probably distroyed in the Great Crash.

Sincerely,
Gargoyle

Hack a big green luggy into your LEFT hand (similulate the sound and action but make it as realistic as possible) extend your hand - and if the other does the same and extends their's you know you have discovered one of the "inner-circle" of Mudcat friends.

I found mudcat whilst searching for lyrics and found that half the people I knew from festivals were already here.

Some of the names took some deciphering though.

Jayto, for me, a gig came up at Mudcat..

it was Murdoch's latest 'album', then The Apple Hollow Music Fest,
and now a project with some wildman from west Kentucky... who woulda thunk ?

I tell people about it when they ask me for lyrics or info on songs. I'm not sure we need a flyer or some such. People who are interested in what the Mudcat and the DT have to offer will find us eventually.
On the other hand - I've been planning to write about the Mudcat for our German folk mag for ages. Maybe I should try and get round to doing it.

There you go. Nigel and Rapaire came up with the same idea, but the salutes were different across the herring pond.

Is it only the English who use the two-fingered gesture?

Yes, I know about the 'Ghastly old Archers' theory, but I incline to the theory that two fingers means 'Up Yours, Twice!"

I sat in on a session where someone suggested John Hartford's Steam Powered Aereoplane, and it was played, with me struggling along on guitar. I later posted a request for chords on Mudcat, had some suggestions, then posted what I came up with, though wrong.
I printed a copy of this wrong chord pattern and took it to another jam, where someone else suggested the song. The woman next to me starts leafing through a notebook, and I show her my copy of the song saying "I have this and it's close, but not exactly right." She finds her page, and says "well, this guy seems to have worked it out", and there in front of my eyes is a printout of my post from Mudcat. A Twilight Zone moment, and a realization that what we do here, for better or worse, is often an act of archiving, preserving, and instructing, which is taken seriously by people we may never meet. Or who may end up sitting right next to us.

EJ, sometimes it is a very small eworld. We had a discussion here last week about Big Bertha, which I said was a Traction Engine, and others thought was a big gun. I Googled 'Traction Engine Big Bertha' and it came up with my post in the middle of the Mudcat thread from the day before!
There, I'm an authority!

Everyone was right in that discussion, by the way.

Whenever I've posted lyrics, I've felt that I was sharing them, and helping to make sure that they never get lost.

There's already the log, which you can download. I have it on my MYSPACE

I spread the word when it comes up (sic)

We have badges.

Well I had one, but lost it at Cheltenham last year.


A5 flyers would work.

Hello,

I was introduced to Mudcat by the wonderful but late lamented Dave Bryant. Sadly, When I admit to my liking for Mudcat, the reply is often, "Mudcat, I can't be doing with that!" or "I wouldn't post to that" or "!"£$%^&*(()_+)"

Sad really, but we have to take the blame for many threads that waste everybody's time!

(Like 1954...what is folk music etc etc etc !)

Best wishes,


Peter
