Given the noise surrounding acts like SoH do we need a new title for their genre?

Ermm... something like death-punk-acoustic-garage-techno-folk-rock-thrash...?

I think I'll let you nominate the particular hair you'd like to split! :-)

Absolutely. A new pigeon-hole is just what we've been crying out for. Just don't mention horses.

Title with one eye on the combustible nature of the material and an approved H&S rig. Even so, acoustic rock seems to fit SoH in a way that it doesn't for Mawkin Causely, Bellowhead, The Unthanks and other NFAs.

I doubt many of SoH's audience are folkies anyway. SoH, Billy Bragg, OysterBand - acoustic rock.

SoH are alt-country, of course. Its just that the country in question is the west country, not America.

Rock without electricity is pointless.

The entire term "acoustic" is such a nebulis term anyway... I have an Oscar Schmidt resonator that has a ceramic pickup in it... Most folks would look at it and say, "Yup, that is an acoustic geetar" and leave it at that... Then I plug in and run it thru a Fender Blue Junior tube0type amp and mess with the setting and all of a sudden what looks like an acoustic instrument sounds like Leslie West of the band "Mountain"...

But, hey... I can play it anywhere else where supposed acoustic music is being played...

Used to be acoustic meant just that... Now everyone plugs in..

Skiffle is skiffle, WAY before my time. Rock ain't rock without a Les Paul or a Strat surely? Imagine 'Freebird' played on Martin's???

I think we all know what we mean by acoustic - the definition you won't find in the books.

"Imagine 'Freebird' played on Martin's"

That would be fantastic. Even better on washboard, jug, stand-up base, banjo and melodeon...
