Just took a look at your blog, Emma, very nicely done and hilarious that Ashley H and Blair D. were denying their relationship.

You might nor know that a couple of weeks ago, Ashley, Blair, and Judy Dunlop appeared together at The Red Lion Folk Club, at The Red Lion Pub, in Kings Heath Birmingham, now THAT must have been quite an evening:-)

well Emma, the problem from my curmudgeonly and grumpy old manly viewpoint is that, whenever I see a post that's put up by you, it leads me inexorably to your blog. So the discussion here kicks off - and you never return to add to the conversation, say "ta" (perhaps) for a decent response, or anything else.

The inference I draw from that is that you're only really interested in luring people to your blog by putting up Aunt Sally questions here on Mudcat. How much nicer to create a post with your own words and thoughts in the post itself - and then dig into the subsequent discussion yourself.

Perhaps it's just me being an old cynic. I'd be quite interested in having a decent discussion with you here - but external blogs don't interest me in the slightest.

There's nothing wrong with a manager or a label "putting together" a band.

It's just that, when they do, they tend to be of the unashamedly commercial, middle-of-the-road kind.

Hey, I hear Westlife split up recently. These Moonshee people could mop up some of the post-Westlife dollar methinks.

Reminds me of the Corrs. (Whatever happened to them?)

Very interesting I see I have been accused of the green eyed monster, once again by supporters of the folkistocracy.

However i stick by my 'macrobiotic' comment. Its kind of understandable where its all come from, but none of it sets your mind on fire - artistically no one would cut their lughole off for this stuff.

BD has a fine DADGAD propulsive plectrum technique. The kind of people who go to folk clubs and sing Damien Rice songs will think this is fabulous. You can see JD more than Ashley's influence. Theres nothing more organic than a lad and his Dad making music. But when the Dad has been telling everybody what constitutes folk music for the last forty odd years - you'd expect the folk roots to be a little nearer the surface.

so like I say - more Steven Smith and Father, than the Carter family.

Park Records is in many ways the more interesting of the two. Park were forever advertising in the Bandit newsletter looking for new talent. When we had a recording studio way bck in the 1980's I sent them some remarkable young singer.songwriters, who never got the courtesy of a reply even. So I contacted them and asked them, what they would want to find in tomorrow's mail if their A and R dept was going to respond. They told me that they wanted a YOUNG, ETHNICALLY DIVERSE group. So after hanging round 20 years , they've decided to act out their fantasy.

I've always loved Come All You Fair and tender Maidens.   Its a great song, and full marks for choosing a Childe Ballad to openthe scoring. Like Fairport choosing Susanne, and The Johnstons doing Streets of London - it a respectable start - lets see how they run with it.

Okay not jealous, not malicious - just not hairs standing up on the back of the neck time. Understand.......? i doubt it.

The Monkees, of course, were the quintessential manufactured band. So what? They still made some good music (at least those of us who sort of like 60s pop music thought it was pretty good . . .) They had lots of clunker songs, but so did the Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Who.

They don't quite pull it off for me.

Individually they are all pretty good and the song was a good choice and is well sung, but the whole does not blend effectively. The harp and sitar particularly jar. I like both instruments but for me they don't work together.

Overall they sounded like a work in progress.

Good luck to them, nevertheless.

EmmaHartley, I'm really curious about how you feel about "manufactured" bands. Why is that piece of information important enough to you to start a thread about it? I detect a fair bit of negativity toward the concept of a manufactured band. Why is that? If that's not so, why did you start a thread with that as the most important aspect?

The last band I was in was started by me. I decided what kind of sound I wanted and went out and invited musicians to join. Whenever we needed to replace someone we conducted auditions. I wrote all the originals we did and had the biggest say in our arrangements. Was that a manufactured band? What's the difference?

John P. Because it was the most interesting thing about them. As I explain in the post, there was something bizarre about their stage behaviour that only made complete sense when you knew they were put together and organised by a "higher power". A kind of nervousness that you don't normally see with folk bands.

Okay, for the big question. Two big questions, actually. They are, without my being at all sure which of them should come first and which one second, (drum roll)>>>>>>>

1) Is "authenticity" a meaningful word, that is, is "authenticity" even possible, when referring to a "folk band" at this point in human cultural evolution?

2) If the answer to the above question is "Yes, authenticity can still exist," then is it possible for any of us, immersed as we are in the Spectacular situation, could possibly recognize it?

Emma, what I saw in their videos is a band that hasn't played together long enough. The individuals are quite skilled, but they haven't internalized their material yet. The songs are just a bit over-arranged and the band is focusing more on remembering the parts of the arrangement than on just playing it as a whole. In short, they are stiff on stage and the songs don't breathe.

The fact that they have "backing" probably means they are playing on stages they really aren't ready to play on yet. But that could be equally true if they formed themselves and found backing instead of being manufactured by a producer.

What I find interesting about them is their apparent newness to each other and to the material. They have enough skill that they will get better. I don't really care about the mechanism of their formation; it's none of my business and isn't really very interesting. I understand, however, that you find it interesting, and I support your right to think so. What I'm really curious about is whether you think it is automatically a negative aspect of the band, since there seemed to be a bit of that your remarks.

The links here and here are to the John Renbourn Group back when they featured Keshav Sathe on tabla. And here is the excellent Magic Carpet who were more on the psych-folk side of things. I always though this was a great sound that could be taken much further (though the forty odd Indian classical CDs I have on my shelves tell me I'm probably a bit biased). Having said that, this doesn't really do it for me - its all a bit too airbrushed and squeaky clean (though in the folk world it's far from alone in having that sound). I don't think it's the manufacturedness of it that causes this, just the decision to go for the default 21st century folk sound.

No problem with the idea of 'manufactured sounds' from me, though. Check out a wonderful album called 'The Upside Down World of John Pantry' which is chock full of brilliant psych-pop and most of it by bands that were avowedly studio concoctions. I agree with Gluey that it doesn't have to be either/or - its what comes out that counts.

It's the material and musicianship that matters.

"Every act is manufactured."

Only in a sense that is so general that it's meaningless.

The odd thing about this one is that none of the members of that band took part in the manufacturing. That doesn't usually happen in folk music.

That doesn't usually happen in folk music.

You mean that bands are manufactured in "folk music" with the member's consent...

The musicians brought their own songs to the album if you check it out. Songs from where they grew up etc.

And the musicians did a most of the musical arrangement.
