Subject: Knockholt - This Is Summer! - June 2009
From: Mick Woods
Date: 19 May 09 - 12:42 PM

Well I thought I'd start the official This Is Summer thread. The earlier thread was advance notification of summer and autumn knockholt dates. This one is solely for The "This Is Summer" event 17th - 21st June 2009 See KNOCKHOLT and folkmob.com for more info.

looking forward to a weekend around a campfire with the likes of Pete The Hat, Richard Bridge, John Barden, Folkmob and a host of other musical spirits.

Alas NoisySprog will at most visit during the day since canvas and portaloos are apparently not suitable...

Love to come. Looks like I might be able to blag a ride off the ever kindly indulgent VTam & SilentOne for weekend.

If so will have to blag tent off of other kind peeps - I think Dilligaf made offer? *If* still available I'd much appreciate!

VT&S1 have only ickle space enough for my bum (despite it's obviously teeny fairy-child proportions...) - & If I do need to train in, carrying tents/camp gear through multiple changes and London underground will be a right pain in the same.

Jolly good..

Learning Anne Briggs "Summer's In" for Midsummer.

Although it's actually about the 'last day of Spring', I thought it might make a fitting chorus song for Knockholt.

Posting a YouTube up here, in case anyone else with mandolin or drum or whatnot fancies joining me.

I have been listening to a fair bit of Anne Briggs the last few days, and I have decided that she over-decorated. On this recording (where her own pitch is a bit suspect too) you can hear that the additional singers are a little behind her, possibly because they are having to wait for the decoration to develop before knowing hwere to go themselves (or possibly because of her notoriously personal sense of timing).   

You may well do it better than her.

The instrument is not a mandolin. She played an Irish bouzouki (but it may have been before there was such a thing as an Irish bouzouki) and acccording to some notes I have somewhere she used a drone tuning - it might have been EAEA - and was largely self-taught.

"I have decided that she over-decorated."

I'm not keen on such a high degree of ornament either. And I don't feel it 'suits' E. Trads all that much in particular - just a personal preference. Overall I can find Briggs a little too frilly for my listening tastes.

It is well known that a lot of Brigg's songs were learned by her in an Irish environment, and possibly that is where she got the habit.

I wonder if we will hear the Ghostly whistler this year. Woke me up last year? Very good though so I cant complain. Others heard it too. I wonder if that sinister looking house on thew over side of the hedge has anything to do with it. Have you die hard knockers ever noticed over the years The Sun never shines on that house. I have never seen anyone enter or leave and i was talking to the landlady of the Tally Ho who often has a ride up that lane told me that her horse does not like passing the place , I just told her to dig her heels in and
Ride On.

On a bit of a tangent again, but one singer I've only heard a couple of songs of is Frankie Armstrong, but I like her slightly husky and 'sing song' musical voice and style more than Briggs. Will have listen out for more. June Tabor I only discovered a shortish time ago likewise, but she's got a great tone and masterful vocal dexterity.

When we first camped at Knockholt about 22 years ago, there was a different house there it was empty for years, we used to go over and snoop about, the gardens back and front were very overgrown and we found an unlocked garage with an old vintage car inside. It did feel quite eerie over there, then one year we found they had pulled the house down and were building a new one in it's place. Maybe the ghostly whistler walks Stoneings Lane by night searching for his old home and car.

Oh yeah... And another thing.

I'd absolutely love to duet with someone on Nick Cave's 'Where the Wild Roses Grow'

Can anyone play this tune???

They called me the Wild Rose, but my name was Eliza Day...

I just LOVE the lyrics. Hysterical..!

CHORUS:
They call me The Wild Rose
But my name was Elisa Day
Why they call me it I do not know
For my name was Elisa Day

From the first day I saw her I knew she was the one
As she stared in my eyes and smiled
For her lips were the colour of the roses
They grew down the river, all bloody and wild

When he knocked on my door and entered the room
My trembling subsided in his sure embrace
He would be my first man, and with a careful hand
He wiped the tears that ran down my face

CHORUS

On the second day I brought her a flower
She was more beautiful than any woman I'd seen
I said, 'Do you know where the wild roses grow
So sweet and scarlet and free?'

On the second day he came with a single rose
Said: 'Will you give me your loss and your sorrow?'
I nodded my head, as I layed on the bed
He said, 'If I show you the roses will you follow?'

CHORUS

On the third day he took me to the river
He showed me the roses and we kissed
And the last thing I heard was a muttered word
As he stood smiling above me with a rock in his fist

On the last day I took her where the wild roses grow
And she lay on the bank, the wind light as a thief
As I kissed her goodbye, I said, 'All beauty must die'
And lent down and planted a rose between her teeth

CHORUS

Re Mick singing The Derby Ram, I'm training him to snore it, it's coming along nicely as he gets in lots of practice. Pigs Ear is next Friday 29th, unfortunately we can't come as we'll be travelling back from Dorset with the grandchildren on the Saturday.

"The Toilet People" Sounds like a name for a band or a B movie - do they still have B movies? Most movies these days I would rate as Z movies. Anyway you can always go and ask the farmer to unlock the gate. He says he has to close it because of the eastern european campers who try to camp there permanantly and would eat all his sheep if the could - honest that's what happened last year.

The links are both working for me the knockholt one is a bit slow to load. Anyway here is the message from the treasurer:

"The committee have decided that we are going to aim to make Knockholt self funding as the total outlay for the two weekends in June and September 2008 came to £1,000 last year the main drain being the toilets and wood which amounted to £759.26. The majority of committee members felt that we shouldn't be using the club funds to finance it. So it was decided that this June as well as the £4.00 per night for the farmer we will charge a further £2.00 per night which will go towards the cost of the toilets and wood etc. Only charging the £4 farmers fee for those who come on Wednesday and Thursday as that is really the working party who get everything set up before the main event on Friday and Saturday. Pauline will also run a raffle with the proceeds going into Knockholt expenses, Obviously the funds will still have to shoulder the bulk of the cost this time."

I did respond to the committee about my concerns and issues that I have with the above decision and as yet have not had a reply. two committee members that I did speak to informaly, told me that they were not present when this decision was made, and they too had concerns..

Pierre, one of my male friends was walking with a mate, when nature called. He ducked by a tree for a poo - when he did (quote) "the loudest fart he'd ever heard!!!!".

The sound reverberated so loudly across the countryside, that he became utterly incapacitated with laughter. He couldn't even wipe his bum.

Several minutes later, his mate wandered back wondering why he'd not appeared again, and found him still weak as a baby with hysterics, with his pants and jeans around his ankles...

1. Leave the cumming to the bipeds.
2. Or possibly the sheep.
3. Ray Fox runs an agency selling solicitor's practices and is unlikely to be there. Anyone who can consistently rip off solicitors has to be fairly ferocious.
4. No, No, NO! It's "Shake a tailfeather, let me see you shake a tailfeather..."
5. I can be sure the sheep do not chase me. They might find me easy to catch.
6. The gate is about the same height as the fence round your garden, which you clear with ease.
7. Never mind the East Europeans, you be careful of that Chappox feller, if he invites you camping it is with intent (geddit?) - and you may also find an East Europeean in his tent, and he may be plucking her tailfeather... (but cooking yours)

For the attention of Ginger the Chicken.

You should be warned that Reynard Fox is quite the nefarious poultry smuggler. We at Agency for the Preservation of Barnyard Fowl have been tracking him for many years and have yet to collar the fellow.

He is suspected of running a whitemeat salver and cut rate cutlet ring. As yet we have not yet been able ascertain whether he is in league with Big Bad Wolf and Wile E. Coyote. So we are coordinating with PIG (Private Investigations General) and a feathered desert racer of some notoriety.

Please avoid Reynard Fox at all cost. If you have any information that might lead to the capture, arrest and conviction of this criminal, please contact me, by dropping an acorn on my head. Whereupon, I will raise the alarm, by running around, flapping my wings, squawking something unitelligible about the weight of the sky and the imminent doom of being crushed by it.

I have packed me bags and Im ready to go I am traveling very light to Knockholt this year
so light in-fact that i am getting there by train to Orpington and then the bus from Orpington to The Tally Ho pub which is walking distance or staggering distance to the camp site.

The bus is the R5 from Orpington Train Station and they run every hour but do not run on Sundays
I have got my new tent. 3 birth from Argos £29.99 you get a free sleeping bag + a free roll mat+ a free Ruck sack and lamp. Very good value.

Due to the traveling light I will only be bringing my Traveling Guitar which is small enough to fit in a Mandolin carry case the instrument has yet to be set up by the great guitar doctor, Brain Rogers so all the action is out with fret buzz and both me nuts are to big and need a good sanding down (painful)

But there are long hours In the early stages of Knockholt weekend where during the day it can get a wee bit boring so I might start a guitar workshop with anyone else who is interested.

Please note the usual Saturday afternoon session down the
Tally Ho is on this year starting with me and my great drinking partner Woodsie setting of to the tally Ho for opening time at 11am. By 200 oclock we usually have a packed out beer garden and a great afternoon.
so no moans that we all have buggered off down the pub. Early evening we all stagger backfrom the pub up the lane back to the camp site for The Saturday night round the bonfire all-night sing around.

If you play a chord and the relevant pentatonic scale on any instrument it should sound harmonic. Your instruments were probably out of kilter with each other, or more likely on the day your brains were out of ket with all that double vision stuff being consumed. Try an Am chord and play a C scale and change the chords using a C Am F G7 progression,or a D pento over a D Bm G A7 chord progression - endless hours of fun.

2. Larvae (plural of Larva so presumably including Par-Larvae) hatch out into bugs. Bugs = Microsnot.

3. The word "banjo" is the clue. If you can tune it, it is not a banjo. Whan I picked up your various mandolins at the re-wake they were so far out of tune each of them alone nearly sounded like a banjo only squeakier. The two to gether must have been horrid. Try again when both are in tune - and if still sounding horrid, check against someone playing a guitar that is in tune.

There is another thought worth considering, if the world is getting warmer and spring/summer is coming earlier. Perhaps we should organise KH next year in May.....(responses on a post card please)

Who remembers this song from 1988( with a few lyric changes)

John Ketley was a Weatherman.
A Weatherman, A Weatherman.
John Ketley was A Weatherman
And so is Richard Philps.

He hangs his Banjo out his Flat.
He declares "Its going to Snow and that is that.
Then a lightening bolt it kills The Cat,
and a Glacier comes out the Fridge.

Ohhh John Ketley was A Weatherman
A Weatherman. A Weatherman.
John Ketley was a Weatherman.
And so is Richard Bridge.

He predicts "Its gonna rain and then its not.
Its gonna be freezing and then its Hot.
The camping field 'Will become a Mire.
and a Hurrican blows out the fire.

Ohhh John Ketley was A Weatherman
A Weatherman A Weatherman.
John Ketley was a Weatherman,
and so is T.D.L.

They say" Bring your Wellies, Fore Rain will be felt".
There a blistering Heat wave and your Wellies melt.
it does not rain in Knockholt , But there a Tidal wave in Scarborough.
Saints preserve us What a Parlarva.

Oh John Ketley was a Weatherman

John Ketley was a Weatherman.

It works rather well. (No it never has had chemicals in it so its safe.
All you have to do is fill the large plastic bottle supply tank with water and puimp the handle untill you can not pump it anymore flick a switch and away you go. adjust the sprayer forward for a fine spray or losen for a drenching spray.

Right oh Richard.
You make the Sauce if you wish and I will slow cook the lamb. I have not got a thick based cooking vessel so the answer to this is I will use a Tin but raise it up above the embers
the higher it is raised the slower it will cook.

Has I explained to folk at Pigs Ear if you hold you hand low over a flame its bloody hot and if you keep it there it will burn/cook your hand.

If you raise your hand over the same flame it will cook and if you raise it over the flame so its a bearable heat it will not burn your hand for some time but it will get hot and it will cook it after a while .Slowly
Its all about height and heat.
                                                                     
Lamb cooking

Lamb is a some what bland meat .
It also smells awful during cooking.
But tastes lovely.

I will cook the Lamb on the Thursday morn should take a slow 4 hours I will steam it
and then brown it off .
                                              Optional
I suggest you then add your Sauce and we flash heat it.

Basically that means fire bomb the joint . one runs away to excape licking flames and then returns when the flames have died down. This process well it kinda caramelizes the sauce.

This is all well and good, but remember that the fire has to be tended I remember a couple of years ago when some people took the fire over for several hours slow cooking a lump of pork. The fire burnt steadily away, untended while we stood there watching, mouths watering in anticipation. When finally the cooking finished the said piece of meat was whisked away by it's owner to some remote spot to be consumed. The fire had all but gone out and I was barely able to rescue it in time for the evening festivities. By all means cook on the fire but have some consideration for the poor starving onlookers, keep the fire going and have the food off in time for the evening singaround.

I quite agree and then you have folk who also wanna cook inspired by others which is all very well and they chuck more wood on which is not all very well. fore one needs a constant temperature to cook a leg of Lamb not Differing temperatures.

So what I purpose to do "And I put it to you' , is to not cook on the main fire but build a huge Barbecue off the ground out side my tent. I will need four flat logs which I will return to the main log pile when Im finished cooking. The Logs are solely for resting the Barbecues on fore I will not leave burn marks on the farmers field.
This way Im not hogging the main fire all day and I can cook at my own temperature. Once cooked I may Brown off the Leg of Lamb over the main fire on a turning pole but that wont take long and I will be finished long before the singer-around starts.

My mates going to drop me off a Leg of Lamb late Tuesday Night.(Frozen)
I will place it straight in my freezer and bring it to Knockholt on Wednesday by the time I get there it will still be frozen so I will hang it up a tree having first put it in a new mosi net until thawed out.

I will leave it up the tree alnight so foxes and T.D.L etc cant get it .
the alternative is to place the Leg of Lamb in a trailer persons fridge. but there are not many if any trailers there Wednesday night. Its wont go off over night up a tree but it must be cooked straight away Thursday Morning. Once retrieved from the tree top of course.

Now to find the ingredients for Moroccan sauce Richard mentioned in the above thread its got to be on the internet ,And then go out shopping and buy the stuff.

Here is one recipe for Harissa - but it's not the one I spotted the other day that recommended Scotch Bonnets as the chillies - which scared me a little.

Harissa keeps well in the fridge, but be sure to cover it with a little olive oil to keep it from being exposed to the air.
Ingredients
250g/9oz long, fresh red chillies
sea salt
3 heaped tsp caraway seeds, ground
3 heaped tsp cumin seeds, ground
1 tsp black cumin seeds, ground (optional)
4 cloves garlic
100g/3½oz piquillo peppers, or roasted and peeled red bell pepper
2 tsp tomato purée
2 tsp red wine vinegar
4 tbsp olive oil
2 level tsp smoked paprika



Method
1. Remove the tops of the chillies, then slice in half lengthways. Lay each chilli on a chopping board, cut-side up, and gently scrape away the seeds with a teaspoon and discard.
2. Blend the chillies in a food processor with a pinch of salt, half of each of the spice seeds and the garlic cloves until smooth.
3. Add the peppers, the rest of the spice seeds, the tomato purée and vinegar, and blend again until very smooth. Transfer to a mixing bowl.
4. Now add the olive oil. Sprinkle the paprika on top of the oil and stir in. Taste and season, if necessary, with more salt to balance out the vinegar.

This is the one that scared me: -

classic spice blend, Harissa can either be used as an addition to stews or it can be served as a condiment to accompany rice dishes.

Ingredients:
1 tsp Coriander seeds
1tsp white cumin seeds
1tsp Caraway seeds
1tsp mint
5 cloves garlic
1tsp ground coriander
10 dried red chillies (preferably hot eg birds' eye, scotch bonnet, piri-piri)






Harissa Preparation:


Method:
Cover the chillies with hot water and let stand for 15 minutes until soft. Place chillies and remaining ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth using water that the chillies soaked in to thin it. The sauce should have the consistency of thick paste. If you place the paste in a jar and cover with a thin film of olive oil it will keep for at least a couple of months in the refrigerator.

I think I have everything else (must check spice cupboard)   - but dried Scotch Bonnets in Strood - I might as well be asking for Dom Perignon or Kristal (or in fact the rather better and less vulgar Rene Lalou). I have ONE Scotch Bonnet in the fridge and it ain't enough and I have been racking my brains about how to create a thick-bottomed cast iron or earthenware pot the lid of which drains the condensate back into the food. I could have done it with a Chimnea and a thick bottomed saucepan, but my chimnea was nicked at the height of the scrap iron price boom!

Here's a recipe for the tagine cooking of shoulder of lamb. I suspect that if one uses a leg one wants to cook it gently until the meat falls off the bone - and that this recipe is designed for rather higher-heat oven cooking.

1 boned shoulder of lamb, cubed
1 onion, finely chopped
500g carrots, chopped
4 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp powdered cinnamon
3cm length ginger, grated
zest and juice of 1 lemon
1 tbsp coriander leaves
12 black olives
1 tbsp Harissa
salt and black pepper to taste






Tajin bei-Lham
(Lamb Tagine with Harissa Sauce) Preparation:


Method:
Put the oil in the base of a tagine, heat and gently fry the lamb until browned then add the onion and fry until translucent. Add the cinnamon, ginger and grated lemon zest and lemon juice. Add sufficient hot water to cover the contents of the tagine and season with salt and black pepper.

Bring to a boil, add the lid and cook for 1 hour before adding the carrots, coriander and the harissa. Cook gently for 45 minutes then add the olives.

When I asked for Scotch Bonnets in Sainsburys the women thought I was talking about a bloody Hat? Cant get the staff.

Well my version of the Moroccan Tangain is complete. I have been drilling and rigging up a Roast rest so the lamb wont sit on the bottom of the Woks and burn. My Sister popped in and wondered what the hell I was making When I told her it was my Version of a Moroccan Tangine she said" It looks more like a Alien Space Ship.

                                 ''They came from out of Space".
                                  "They were a most peculiar race "Were The hardons.


In all honesty the vessel is much similar to what I cooked Chicken in at Dilligafsxx a few weeks back.

Richard the base of the vessel is about quarter inch thick made up of three woks sitting in each other+a Roast rest and a Wok on top. Held together with 2 G Clamps. with a funnel sticking out the top.

Richard
Question Does the sauce go on top of the lamb toward final stages of cooking or do you just stick it on the side has a dip or does one spoon it over the sliced Lamb has one might with Chile sauce and a Kebab?.

What kinda veg you want, Sugah? They won't be arriving until Saturday midday though.

Anyway, I thought we might bring:

Large baking potatoes (split with thick slice of onion, cracked black pepper and pat of butter inside, wrapped in foil) to put in the fire.

Yams as above but decorated with butter and cinnamon.

Corn cobettes again.

And marinade peppers, onions, mushrooms to skewer and grill.

2 different marinades = Satay and Mexican salsa with lime and taco seasoning.

I love Dill and lime. For tomorrow, I am bringing a pasta salad with colourful peppers, cucumbers, vitorrio tomatoes in a lime and dill salad dressing.

Oops wrong thread.

Try this: I can't get scotch bonnets either but I can probably improvise a Harissa using one of the above recipes with flaked dried chillis in stead - it may be a bit of a case of adding the Harissa bit by bit to avoid blowing eveyone to pieces!

here's a Tagine recipe from North Africa:

Lamb Tagine with Harissa Sauce


Ingredients

1 boned shoulder of lamb, cubed

1 onion, finely chopped

500g carrots, chopped

4 tbsp olive oil

1/2 tsp powdered cinnamon

3cm length ginger, grated

zest and juice of 1 lemon

1 tbsp coriander leaves

12 black olives

1 tbsp Harissa

salt and black pepper to taste

Method:

Put the oil in the base of a tagine, heat and gently fry the lamb until browned then add the onion and fry until translucent. Add the cinnamon, ginger and grated lemon zest and lemon juice. Add sufficient hot water to cover the contents of the tagine and season with salt and black pepper.



Bring to a boil, add the lid and cook for 1 hour before adding the carrots, coriander and the harissa. Cook gently for 45 minutes then add the olives.

Cous Cous is extremely easy to do when catering in bulk - I've done it in kitchens for lots of peeps (or indeed just one or two - I use it all the time when camping).
Just buy a couple of bags of the stuff (depending how many you plan to feed) - shove it in a big pot with a veggie stock cube or two and a good dollop of olive oil.
Then *just cover* with boiling water. Leave it *off* the heat. It'll swell by itself. Easy peasy. A little bit of lemon juice and a couple cans of chickpeas are quite nice to add too.

Not the proper steaming way - but great for easy outdoors feeding.

Anyone fancy having a go at The Four Old Whores of Baltimore?
One verse a piece, and shared chorus. So who's up ferret? Holds breath........... ;-)

Couple of YouTubes for the tune here:

Four Old Whores of Baltimore (I love this version)
Four Old Whores

Lyrics:

Four Old Whores

There were four old whores from Baltimore
Drinking beer and wine.
The topic of conversation was
"Mine is bigger than thine.'

cho: Roly, poly, tickle my hole-y,
    Smell of my slimy slough.
    Then drag your nuts across my guts,
    I'm one of the whorey crew.

The first old whore from Baltimore said,
"Mine's as big as the air.
The birds fly in, the birds fly out,
And never touch a hair."

The second old whore from Baltimore said,
"Mine's as big as the moon.
The men jump in, the men jump out,
And never touch the womb."

The third old whore from Baltimore said,
"Mine's as big as the sea.
The ships sail in, the ships sail out,
And leave their rigging free."

The fourth old whore from Baltimore said,
"Mine's the biggest of all.
A man went up in the springtime,
And didn't come out till fall."

If anyone fancies, I'll print lyric sheets up. We could practice Saturday and do it Sunday?

shall I hit it with a Claw hammer to tenderise it prior to cooking.

In the rescipe it states quite clearly sliced fried Lamb,
also one gets quite a lot of Fat and juices from the Roasting Lamb.
do I keep this (Dripping) or dispose of it during cooking.

I do not want folk saying Ohh You should have kept That. This Morrocan cooking is all new to me. also I have lots of Rosemary at home and that goes very well with Roast Lamb but will it add to Harissa.

Well, I've never done Moroccan cooking at all but I am quite clear that the lamb should be cooked slowly until falling to pieces. I think I would chunk it. If it's falling to pieces it won't need tenderising.

Morroccan cooking, I am sure, is greasy so I don't think you drain the fat and juices: they get into the tagine sauce (to which you will add some harissa.

I am not aware of Rosemary growing in North Africa so I think Rosemary is a "no"!

I'd say the things to bring if space is limited would be a chair each, a torch, drinking vessels/plates/knives/forks/spoons, bottled water, wet wipes, kitchen roll, warm jackets/jumpers/socks/trainers, the evenings can get a bit cool even with the camp fire, swimming goggles are great for keeping the smoke out of your eyes but strangly enough I've never seen anyone else wearing them, a cool bag or box to store food/drink, bottle opener/tin opener, cling film/silver foil and If you forget or need anything there will always be someone to help you out.

I Wish people would make there minds up?

The alternative is to feed the Cat to the Alsatian next door. Now.

I was aiming to be first on site but what with this now Cat Fiasco it seems like I be climbing over the gate at 1300 hrs. By the time I pitch my new tent and get sorted I may just scratch a pint or 6 down the tally Ho with good old Woodsie before the place closes at 3oclock. Stupid Idea the pub should be open all day.

This is evidence which suggests that he forced the victim,[hereonafter refeered to as Fox R] to eat the fireworks. That attemnpt proving unsuccesful M'Lud Hoff, he threw the fox down the mineshaft, a place where he just happened to be working, and framed the Chicken.

Thurs, light rain later
Fri, good
Sat, light rain PM. Fuckit.
Sun cloudy but dry later.


Where is our scorching summer when we need it?


The first Harissa I thought I had lost, but I found it in the fridge eventually. Hot but not totally deadly (if you think of it as a curry paste which will be diluted).

The second I think of as the sweet and sour as it has a lot of Cardomom seed kernels in it (they are SO boring to husk) and also honey. It was made with fresh not dried chilis (I only had one scotch bonnet, but I found I had some frozen bird-eyes and some fresh-is big chilis). On tasting I added fresh lime and lemon. It is VERY vigorous (to the extent that the entire bunch of garlic only becomes apparent after about 5 minutes of thinking about the chilis and salt). The recipe turned out to make about a two-pound jamjar full so if you want samples, bring little pots.

I have the followng tents with me for my harem of sheep or otherwise as follows: -

Val's 4-person, for Crow Sister (you will love her singing)
Sam's (he's Rachel's BF)
The bigger one Paul my lodger kidnapped from Download if Rachel wants a bigger space
Or if Rachel doesn't like it the one my own 4-man ridgepole .
In case friends of Kev's turn up to get ratarsed - the little popup that Paul kidnapped as aforesaid that we have now totally fixed and it is most impressive (indeed bodacious dude)

I will also have a gazebo, as my awning is in the pipeline.

I will further have two double airbeds and a single airbed for the destitute temporarily to sleep in luxury, and a camp bed and a a kipmat.

Looks like we are going to keep it simple as possible. We may do baked potatoes and pre-made sandwiches for lunches and down to pub for evening meal. Don't know yet. Just don't want to bring all the cooking, eating and cleaning up gear, cuz space in car is gonna be tight and I really don't want to be bothered with cooking and cleaning up. Would be different if we were there for longer time.

What normally happens on Saturday lunchtime and dinner time?

Thanks to Fisheye and Fair Maiden of Nottingham for the use of extra bed in caravan.

Last night was bloody cold. I tried to crash about 2am but due to cold, got up shortly before 4am and saw in the sunrise with my partner (TheSilentOne), Crowsister and one other who sadly fell asleep in his chair shortly before. TSO and CS actually saw out the night with a handful of others who trickled away as the wee hours progressed.

Next time I will be better prepared against the cold.

I have come home with either sunburn, windburn or fireburn on my face. I am glowing. So frozen teatowel on my face and long hot soak is the order of the afternoon.

Enjoyed the music and good company and getting to know a few more people.

"Who thought of putting lights in the toilets at night ? Bloody Par-lava." Thats all very well but" I laid out side two toilets for ?    ...25 mins before I realized there was no bugger on em?

The Toilets were Crap this year in respect that one did not work re flushing/ and the other two had other problems,

Beware The Tally Ho is trying to cash in on Knockholt I was reliable informed that the landlord" given prior good notice will lay on any real Ale /Bitter for future events. (But I Guess, He will charge the earth for it?)

A Excellent Ride On at the end of Saturday night well done to the Great john Barden who I followed hopefully in time i do tend to race ahead a bit with Ride On. A great Song.

Maybe we should have done Ride On twice on Saturday immediately after that early night fiasco.
to have dispersed that horrible atmosphere that ruined the first part of the Saturday evening. For me anyway.   

It was also great to see and speak to Howard both down the Tally Ho I have not seen him since Otford last year and also John Barden,s guests at the feast.

It was a shame they left the site so Early Saturday Night?

all my leave has been taken at work now except Knockholt september which Im booked up for but if there are any Rochester Good intent session going on or any Nags Head sessions going on in future please post them has I do have rest days from shift so I may still be able to attend. That also includes Upnor and Otford.

Knockholt was as good as ever, and I certainly look forward to the September gathering.
I just had to say somthing on Saturday evening, and hope I didn't spoil it for the rest of you - it also meant I could sit in the marquee and cuddle the beer barrel for a while. Anyway the evening ended up with everybody joining in, and that was great fun - THANKS to you all.

Richard Bridges' Harissa was fabulous, the Tagine feast held chez him was brilliant, along with the Chile con Carne, the Rice, in fact the whole thing.

Lindas' paella on friday evening, along with the tapas etc was stunning, as was her wonderful home brewed beer. What more could anybody want!!!

Well done to the organisers, and to the Folkmob. You guys do a splendid and at times thankless job.

They have assured me that they will be attending again at the September Knockholt (I hope a certain person has been put on a leash by then or at least developed some manners!).

A great weekend. Great to have spent it with you all.

See as many of you at Aylesford this comming weekend as possible.

Bye for now.

Cheers to all for my first Knockholt - pity we didn't get around the The Four Old Whores before the circle started breaking down for the night - but maybe September...?

Saw the Sun up with TS1 & VTam & another chap called Ian I think - who I had a medicinal helping of beans on toast with before crashing at around 7am I think (I understand why the afternoon's for mooching before evening festivities resume...)

Sorry to TDL, I think you were a bit offended. But we were all somewhat worse for wear after the circle kinda broke up, huddling round the fire, being a bit 'lively' with the chatter, and not really with the programme after that!

Thanks to Babs for essential morning coffee!!!! My cunning plan of camping like some poor hobo outside your homely shelter worked a treat...

Pity we didn't hear a bit more of Rachel. Drum & vocals combo was topper - like Kev said.

Have a good Summer all - Hopefully I'll have some Irish rebel songs under my belt to annoy Richard with by September... :)

And thanks to the folks who do all the hard work.

If you wanna annoy Richard just cook a lamb joint before he gets to Knockholt,
having previously arranged with him to cook it when he gets there.                                                                                 
He will have a right go for wasting his time.

Then put a piece of the cooked Lamb on a knife point take it over to him and with a very steady hand stick it under his nose and let him try the sample.

Sorry Richard I choose to cook the leg of Lamb in its own juices and then Marinate it afterwards at the end of it all it was only cooked with the Marinate you brought along so all the talk about wasting your time well it was not really wasted because it worked on mine and also wonderfully on yours. all the food at the meal was lovely.

For one that will not usually touch Cider because it makes me want to fight the world, Essex Girls Cider was great, The punch was great also.

I hope a certain person takes my advice + others who have known him far longer and better then I do and he stops drinking Cider to the point where it just brings out the complete Devil in him
+ Hic cups..


when he is sober over a couple of pints he quite a nice guy.

Forgot to say - I discovered I had a puncture not far from the Tally Ho on Sunday. Unfortunate perhaps? However, on getting it repaired today, I was informed that it appeared to be a deliberate puncture made in the side wall of the tyre - possibly caused by a dart or a scewer was the informed opinion of the guy that fitted the new tyre - I would like to think that it was just one of those things or that it was an errant tent peg - just thought I would mention it though!!

Kev By the time you drove off site Sunday there was only 6 pitches left in the field. Meself. Pauline and Brian. Mick n Sue Forde. Frank. and the Irish along with Alf & Monica. I was 2nd to last off site with Woodsies sister and her fellow who gave me a lift home to Eltham. Leaving Mick and Sue has the last to leave.

Most folk were off site before we got the Marquee down and there was only Me Mick and Woodsies Sisters Fellow left behind to shift all the remaining huge logs which took quite some time to accomplise and by the time it was finished along with the Marquee my liver was poking out me arse.

I not moaning Re above its just that if I was not there all day Sunday to late Sunday afternoon awaiting my lift then Mr Mick Forde would have had shifted those logs on his own which he would not have been able to do.
What happened was Woodsie sister partner and mick forde loaded the huge logs onto his van and drove them to Dead Tree Copse and I carried the bearable logs.

I was only there due to the very fact that my lift home were in no particular hurry to leave. If not so I would have been gone.Id have had no choice ,that or stay another night alone .

Maybe some form of prior agreement could be made between some of the guys on the Saturday, before everyone starts dwinding away on Sunday regards who's willing, and when to start clearing up the remaining logs.

Someone could maybe bring a sack barrow along too?

We really enjoyed Saturday's session, felt well enough to stay there til sunrise. Shame circle broke up. It wasn't the chatter that upset me, just those hyper drunk youngsters who wanted Trev to play for them all the time. When we tried singing a folk song, the girl, (Louise?) started her own thing at top volume. I was getting cold by then and stopped drumming. Trev insisted on finishing the song on his own, but I told them off for not having any manners. As to a certain other disruptive young man, I am assured that the matter has been dealt with.

So sorry about Kev's puncture. Who would have done such a thing? Sorry too that there was a problem with logs. Trev has in the past always helped with wood, and marquee, but just hasn't the strength now for either. I did make tea for the marquee erectors, and sort the recycling bags.
I have passed the info about Kentish Horse toilets on to Woodsie.

Sorry: I have usually helped downing marquee and de-logging but I was under princess pressure. I can bring sack-barrow (but it only has fairly small wheels) as well as chainsaw (if I remember) in the autumn.

At some point over the event it seems the plot changed, as Fireman Wally told me pretty early on that he was under instructions to burn everything by the end of Sat night - and then suddenly he wasn't.

The location of log dumping has changed over the few years I have been coming, but the present location is better for fire-building.

Log sizes have changed too. It would have been a bit of a pickle both last autumn and this summer if I had not had my chainsaw.

I did some policing of the field (the military definition) Sunday morning around dawn and again later. Picked up trash that would burn and put on fire, moved bottles and cans to where the bags were.

Only thing I did not pick up was filtered cigarette ends. Very worried about them too as the sheep might ingest them.

If I were in any condition to help with logs I would have. Should have helped with marquee, though. Sorry.

Kev - Getting flat tyre sucks any time but especially at the end of long camping weekend. Did you have to take all the tents and stuff out of your car to change the tyre? Hope it was only an accident and not willfully done.

I just wanted to thank everyone for a great Knockers again, especially Folkmob organisers for sorting it all out. I get the sense there are some price-issues.

There needn't be; the thing is so cheap that I can't believe it happens at all. Charge a bit more, get some better toilets and it will still be cheap and even more enjoyable.

Suggestions for committee;

1.
Contact the farmer about the water supply. The problem just seems to be leaks. If he can help us to trace the pipes and the leaks and help us with clearing the hedges and thorns to access the damage areas (and maybe for brews and cleaning up afterwards) then I will volunteer to join a working party to fix things up a bit. He might even do it all himself?

2.
Getting the Marquee up is quite easy with available labour on Thursday. A few of us got it done OK this year. We need to agree and secure volunteers, in advance, for striking it on the Sunday. This must the easiest/simplest/fairest option. Regret I had to leave sharpish this year, but that is unusual.

3.
Nobody has been talking out of turn about this (and I am a know-nothing new member to Folkmob) but from bitter experience of these things can I ask whether the committe might think itself too large? It sounds like a cast of thousands when there is not a lot to do, but some things that must be done efficiently. If the board of a large company only needs Chair, Vice-Chair, Finance, Secretary and 2 A.N. Others then that is certainly all that's needed for us, n'est ce pas? I just think that the hard-working folks that step up to do the management should be able to make things as efficient as possible and receive full support from the members.

4.
The toilets were an issue this year, I thought the provider was taking the P*** (no pun intended.) I wonder if we should look elsewhere? I heard that it has been awkward to find companies that can deliver to site reliably (find the field!) but again I would be happy to volunteer to meet the truck at the Tally Ho at an agreed time and lead them up the road. Perhaps others would, I'm sure we could work this stuff out between us.

What's great about Knockers is its "family" atmosphere...like a private folk festival. I don't believe in complaining or moaning like its a deficient commercial enterprise, let's get stuck in together and support it?

I'm guessing, but if there are leaks between the mains water going onto the farm and the tap we conect to, surely the water supply will be metered so fixing any such leaks will save the farmer money, won't it? So if we can help we'd be the good guys??

I don't think anyone objects to the price of Knockholt - and again I'm not really in the loop, but the sense I got was that there had been a change in control in the committee of folkmob and the incomers waited until the old guard were absent before changing something that had been part of folkmob for a long time - namely the subsidy from surplus club funds to Knockholt.

Maybe some of the usual concessions would need concessions if the price went up a lot, but let's face it we all spend more on beer than on the camping field...

Roystone the water issue was mentioned by me at Folkmobs A,G,M. which was held a few months prior to this years Kockholt.

I was told quite firmly that '' There is absolutely NOTHING. that can be done about the water.
and thats all there is to it. So I pursued the matter no further.

fact..
There is only one major leak and I know where that is situated (Tell tale signs) but it is in the next field and I will not trespass.

I noticed this year a repair job had been done to the leaky section of pipe and indeed it worked, The pressure was up and water flowed out very good but due to the repair being done by wrapping gaffer tape round the leaky section it was doomed to failure. Indeed it failed that afternoon.

I have showed concern for Knockholt water for the last three years but it appears no one can do anything about it whereby clearly I know One Can?

If Knockholts water supply is Monitored by water meter that can be very expensive for the farmer. But surely this cannot be the case in regards to the leak or it would be permanently
expensive and the waste water issue would be appalling to boot.

Is it old fashined coper or lead pipe?

Does anyone know whether farm water supplies are generally metered these days? I am sure that pretty well all other industrial water supplies are.

Some very helpful ideas and suggestions Royston thanks, I think Mick is going to give you a ring. Yes the toilets were an issue this year, in fact they were appalling in the end Adeloo only charged us for two (a reduction of £120) after initially offering us a 10% discount as a way of making amends, needless to say we won't be using them again. We've got the contact details now for the company that supplied the loos for Pigs Ear so we'll make some enquiries there, I think now when most people have sat navs finding the field won't be the problem it was about twelve years ago when we first graduated from one camping loo in a tent to proper on-site toilets, It took them about 4 years of getting lost before they eventually remembered where we were.

I'm glad everyone enjoyed themselves I know I did, I also learnt somethig very useful thanks to Linda - rice can be cooked to perfection in water that never boils.

For those of you who know and love (or hate) Casper his results came back on Tuesday and he's got lymphoma he started his treatment yesterday so hopefully he'll hang around long enough to squeeze in another Knockers in September, so be warned hang on to your bangers! for those who don't know Casper I should probably add that he's a dog.

RESSIPY TIME AS PROMISED

Harissa 1 (makes about half a jamjarful)
3 to 4 tbsp dried chili flakes
A bulb of garlic
About 2 tbstp red paprika
2 tsp (NOT tbsp) caraway seed
2 tsp (NOT tbsp) coriander seed
1 or 2 tsp (NOT tbsp) cumin seed (technically you should dry roast this then grind it)
HALF tsp salt (or a good grind of nice salt – do not overdo it)
A good grind of black pepper
A handful of leaves of fresh mint (theoretically spearmint, but any other mint will do, I used lemon mint)

Soak the chilli flakes in boiling water. Drain AND KEEP the water (to use for thinning the paste if required)

Put the flakes and everything else in the blender and blend like the hammers of hell for several minutes, thinning as necessary with equal quantities of extra virgin (ie not from Knockholt) olive oil (or trendy modern seed oil of choice). Contemplate on the vicissitudes of life of the poor Moroccans who had to do that by hand.

Taste with great care. If much too fiery, try adding a little lemon or lime (supermarket juice like Jif will do but fresh and with the rind is nicer).

Put in jar in fridge. A thin layer of olive oil will help it keep.

Simples!


Harissa 2 (makes about two pound jamjarful)
9 oz of fresh chilis. I used about half a doz of the long ones for flavour, one Scotch bonnet 'cos it was all I had, and the rest frozen bird-eyes, so if you use 9 oz of fresh bonnets or 9 oz of fresh bird-eyes it will be hotter still.
2 tbsp honey, clear and runny if possible
A small grind of sea salt or more to taste
3 heaped tsp (not tbsp) carraway seeds (should be ground but if you blend hard enough who cares?)
3 heaped tsp (not tbsp) cumin seeds
Another tsp BLACK cumin seeds if you can get them
A bulb of garlic
4 oz of fresh piquillo peppers (whatever they are if you can get them) or bell peppers (preferably red, and you can roast and peel them if you like)
2 tsp tomato puree
2 tsp (NOT tbsp) red wine vinegar
4 tsp (NOT tbsp) extra virgin (ie not from Knockholt) olive oil (or trendy modern seed oil of choice)
About 2 tbstp red paprika
Half tbsp of the kernels from cardamom seeds. Shelling the cardomoms is boring.


Put everything in the blender and blend like the hammers of hell for several minutes. Thinning should not be needed. Contemplate on the vicissitudes of life of the poor Moroccans who had to do that by hand.

Taste with great care. If much too fiery, try adding a little lemon or lime (supermarket juice like Jif will do but fresh and with the rind is nicer).

Put in jar in fridge. A thin layer of olive oil will help it keep.



Lamb Tagine (you can scale down the dosage as necessary)
200g of dried apricots (fresh or tinned will do but then you don't need to soak them)
1 ½ to 2 kg of lamb. Most recipes say boned shoulder and that is what I used at Knockers, but I suspect that breast would be very good for the fat to absorb the spices – and cheaper too. You can use chicken or even vegetables in stead but then you will need another source of fats to absorb the spices. Diced turkey is cheap in supermarkets sometimes.
A big onion or two smaller. Red ones might be nice but I haven't tried them. Spanish are probably too mild.
A bulb of garlic (notice the cavalier attitude to garlic, here. Be careful if you are on the pull)
2 tsp (NOT tbsp) coriander seed OR 1 or 2 tbsp coriander leaves
1 or 2 tsp (NOT tbsp) cumin seed
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
400 g or more of tomatoes
4 tbsp extra virgin (ie not from Knockholt) olive oil (or trendy modern seed oil of choice)
500g or more of carrots (chunked)
500g or more courgettes (chunked)
3cm of root ginger
A lemon (or lime)
As much saffron as you can afford (Linda had a lump the size of a golfball that she got cheap in Morocco so we used all of that)
20 black olives (pitted, WITHOUT the brine they came in!)
Tbsp ground almonds if you fancy them: I don't
A large tablespoon of harissa or more to taste
Salt and pepper to taste
Flour to thicken


Fry the meat in the oil until sealed
Fry the onions in the oil until translucent (add more oil if you like)
Put in tagine. If you have not got a tagine a thick-bottomed cast iron pot or a Dutch oven or a casserole will do but you may need to be wary ofcooking on open fire!
Grate the ginger into the tagine.
Slice the lemon into circles, and segment – about 8 to a slice. They will make little sour bombs as you eat!
Fold the ginger and lemon into the contents of the tagine.
Add water so that it nearly covers.
Bring to boil and simmer GENTLY for an hour or more (on fire, in oven or in chimnea or on BBQ – but GENTLY. It doesn't matter if it goes off the boil so long as it does not cool below about 80 degrees centigrade.
Take off some liquid, make a flour paste, fry, adding a little liquid to make a roux, and return to the pot to thicken. Or just dump some flour in if you prefer, or you could add some cornflour to cool water and add so it thicken s of its own accord as it heats. If you want to be really ethnic you could use chickpeas – but BEWARE you don't want it so thick it sticks to the bottom of the pan.
Add everything else except for the courgettes and olives (well, you want the courgettes with some texture and the olives in one piece, don't you?)
Simmer gently for half to three quarters of an hour
Add the courgettes and olives.   Get going on your rice or cous-cous at this point too.
Simmer for about another 15 minutes, thickening and adding salt and pepper to taste


Serve over rice or cous-cous – or fancy bread if you prefer but I hate Morroccan and Eritrean breads.

Regarding the clearing up issues, I belatedly suggested that anyone who had room could take a binbag of bottles/cans away with them to be put in their own bins. At the folkmob meeting last night Mick said that he had to spend hours at the site on Monday clearing it up, despite te fact that most of the rubbish had been collected into bags. We all forget things like the hose pipe and the loos, which have to be cleared up. We are intending to write a list of all the jobs that need to be done at the end of the festival, and will then ask for volunteers - the more the merrier!
P.S. a certain person will not be invited to attend Knockholt in September.

Mainly it's just the rubbish that's left around the fire that needs to be distributed and taken away if anyone has room.

I will be organising work parties for Sunday morning on Saturday night before anyone gets drunk.. they will be split into wood patrol to clear away left over logs, ash from fire removal, wheelbarrow and spades provided, the taking down of the marquee, and the rolling up and removal of the water hose.

I'm sure if we all muck in all those jobs can be done quickly and efficently even with a hangover ;-) Mick will be a much happier man as so much is left to him to do on the Tuesday and it's really not fair.

Maybe we will have larger car in September and can take away a bag or 2 of bottles and cans. Will be happy to help police the field Sunday morning. May even make a nail ended stick for the job.

What about the cigarette ends? There were loads of them about and I am still worrying about the sheep eating them.

Could there be a suggestion that fag ends are not left on the grounds? If smokers would bring small metal pail filled with a bit of sand or kitty litter to keep outside their camp areas and where they sit in the circle, would solve the problem. Easily emptied into the rubbish bags too.

I know, I know... do we need to worry about sheep, given their life span is short? Maybe we should worry about what the toxins might do their progeny. Alters the DNA.

" So the fest and people have always been apart of his life"

My food has been a part of his life.

   
Theres now,t wrong with Caspers legs for running off with my food.
There aint much wrong with that long snout for sniffing it out.

So far that dog has fled the field with 5 Sausages of mine
I swear he had my Fish that were hanging and drying out under a caravan last June.

And he also nicked my Frys Choclete Mint and buggered off with that.

I forgive him for that though because Beryl caught him eating it and put her foot on it to stop him eating it and he bit her foot. Which was so funny I wet meself.

I thought Casper was a bit low this year he is usually all about the place rooting around.

This year I had to contend with LITTLE JACK rooting about in me tent and running off with me Racoon hat.

Both old and youing the Knockholt Dogs are great.

Thanks to everyone for all the expressions of concern for Casper, he is feeling much brighter since having his first Kemo treatment last Wednesday and enjoying being spoilt rotton. Pierre I didn't realize he'd stolen quite so much of your grub over the years which probably accounts for his excessive enthusiasm for Knockholt, up until now we'd always put it down to his being in a "sheepdog type environment".

Thanks to Debs and everyone for plans to help Mick out with dismantling September's Knockholt, he did work very hard last week he went to the field straight from work on Monday shovelled up all the ash & put it in the copse, took the rubbish to the tip, transported the marquee back to Andy's and eventually got home about 10.30pm, he doesn't mind going back the next day to collect the marquee and check for stray crisp packets etc but if we could get the fire and rubbish thing sorted that would be brilliant.

We took our own rubbish away, but did put our recycling into the bags with everyone else's. I did think of taking away a bag of it, but we hadn't a lot of space in the car. As long as cardboard (which I burn on the camppfire), glass, bottles, and tins go in one box. But that is Bromley's scheme. Different councils collect differently. Do they? If campers own authorities have a different system, then glass , tins, and plastics should be bagged seperately.

The main issue is it is located in the ajoining field which is nothing to do with us in the camping field. (My concerns are)

1) It has no public right of way has in regards to a Stile like the ajoining field to the right of Dead Tree copse( it had Mooo Cows in the field back in June)

2) if we jump the fence we are technically Tresspassing. And so could be Shot, Prosecuted or worse both,

Farmers, in general, never repair anything properly. Everything is lashed up with bits of baler string. But if we asked him first, I supplied the pipe and someone else the joints, he MIGHT be prepared to turn off the relevant stopcock to permit and enable us to do it for him (without having to battle with mains pressure at the time...).

Particularly if it saves him money. Farmers usually like saving money...

Hi all, this is Mick not Lady Raffles. I have spoken to Royston this evening and discussed the water issue. There is a leak down by the gate so when I come back from holiday in August I will have a trip up to the farm, see the farmer and speak about arranging a working party to put right the problem. I will get some stakes and we can re use his wire fencing and repair the leak and make good the fence. He's probably got a lot on his plate with just himself and his son running things so I'm sure a little input from ourselves would be appreciated. It may well be that it can be done in an hour or two on the Thursday of the weekend.

While I am on the subject of Knockholt, we will be getting the toilets from a different supplier as those provided in June were not up to standard. I managed to get a 50 per cent reduction after they offered 10 per cent. I will also try and order a new end for the marquee.

There we are things are moving re the water. Now with Micks Fordes negotiating skills with the farmer and Mr Bridges Blue pipe and know how and a couple of decent joints( hmm sound good) and me on a Spade to dig out the pipe we will probably end up flooding the whole area and draining Tonbridge Wells swimming pools and have to make a hasty 'Quick Run away", closely pursued by the water police..

(When I was in the building trade i was a ground worker my fellow builders called me
"MOLE MAN because of my skill and speed with a spade)

This is great and seriously if you wanna work party put my name on it. Dont forget a decent Spade.

I have spade, shovels, pickaxe and mattock. I had assumed the damaged pipe was at surface level since past bodged repairs had been seen.

Burying it a reasonable depth (after testing) would be a good plan to avoid future damage by cows' hooves - which I suspect is likely to have been the original cause of pipe damage.

The pipe emerges some 6ft from the trough it supposed to feed. So yes Richard surface work will be minimal. Spade will suffice Im sure.

Mattock. Jesus its along time since I have heard that name.

In day beyond recall "I have dug a few pilot holes down Chislehurst Mines using a short handled Mattock.      One dont hear that name anymore? (Mining Tool.

I have now finished refurbishing a small trailer (it's about 1x2m). I am happy to bring it along for the transportation of materials and tools to the site if needed. I have a few tools also and am happy to lend a hand digging. It could also be used for clearing rubbish from the site or moving the logs.

Ken
