Subject: Show of Hands
From: Lizzie Cornish
Date: 28 Feb 07 - 08:57 AM

The video's out! Yup...now you can watch 'Roots' whilst listening to it on your CD at the same time...and catch glimpses of Eden too, in more ways than one....splutter! ;0) (That's a joke Moaning Minnies...just a joke..before you all fall over sideways like Mrs. Doyle!) ;0)

All together now....

"Now it's been twenty five years or more....I've roamed this land from shore to shore..." (taken from 'Roots' by Steve Knightley)


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P5h4PFBuzvw


And by the way...'Roots' should have won the Best Original Song without a shadow of a doubt!!!!

At Abbotsbury I saw Karine singing that song, and it's very lovely don't get me wrong...but it merely got a polite round of applause at the end. When Show of Hands, Spiers & Boden and Simon Emmerson performed 'Roots' one thousand people stood up as one...and they cheered as I have NEVER heard Show of Hands fan cheer before!!!

But...NOTHING surprises me about the Folk Awards...or John Leonard...or The BBC....

It was very wrong, in my opinion, to overlook such an incredibly passionate song, which as such an inspirational effect on so many people who hear it...


"Haul away boys, let them go, out in the wind and the rain and snow, We've lost more than we'll ever know round the rocky shores of England"

Sorry...should clarify...Karine sang her song 'Daisy' at Abbotsbury, which was the song that won.

...and that should read 'fanS' above and er...not 'fan'...after Show of Hands, as there is/are far more than one of us...Giggle! ;0)

Lizzie please do us and yourself a big favour. We have heard of SoH, we know what song won the Folk Award, we have already discussed John Leonard's foibles on here. We also know where to find U Tube.
Do us the favour of checking to see if anyone else has posted the same information here already. Your girlish enthusiasm is all very well albeit a bit long lasting, but please don't assume that others share your fads and fancies, and please don't proselytise on here, you are preaching to the converted.
Your tendency to swamp boards with unnecessary and over flowery information of a personal kind may just be the reason why you were banned from other sites. Please don't abuse the openness of Mudcat to flaunt your fey fancies.
Giok

Thanks Lizzie, but I think we've had these discussions before. I'm a fan of SOH myself, but your attempts to 'convert' the non-believers here are, I'm afraid, doomed to failure, and will probably have the opposite effect to the one you seek to achieve.

Best to just enjoy the music and don't worry about the others here. (If you haven't already, maybe you should consider joining the SOH fan group Longdogs, where you will find lots of like-minded people who will be happy to discuss SOH and their music all day.)

Scrump - it's not as if she hasn't been told that over and over and over again on more than one board! It seems that nobody can actually convince her that there is truth in what many people have told her more than once. It just has to be seen by her as a vendetta ... and you have no doubt now joined the ranks of the Moaning Minnies like many others of us!!!

Almost nine thousand views for "Roots" just on YouTube. That is impressive for something that has only been up less than a month.

That is three times as many people as have viewed even the most popular of the Bellowhead clips and one third more than have looked at Karine Polwart's highest scoring video. Says something about how much interest the song is generating in the world at large, if not in the closed world of the folk awards.

Firstly, as I said in my posting above, I am a fan of Show of Hands myself, having seen them live several times last year and earlier this year (the last time just over a week ago). So I don't consider myself one of the 'Moaning Minnies' referred to above - I think this refers to the people who don't like SOH and/or Roots, and I'm not in that category.

But I was trying to persuade Lizzie Cornish that her trying to persuade people here on this forum that SOH and Roots are brilliant, is a waste of effort. Worse than that, I believe it is counter-productive, because she has tried before many times and alienated certain members of this forum, to the extent that she has turned them against SOH and Roots.

As an SOH fan myself, I don't want this to continue, so I was trying to persuade her to stop posting on the subject, as I believe it does SOH more harm than good.

Roots didn't win the Folk Award for best original song, whether Lizzie or anyone else likes it or not. SOH have moved on, and I think we should too. And slagging off Karine Polwart (I'm a a fan of hers too - and why not? she writes some superb songs) is not the way to persuade people how good SOH are. There's room for them all.

Of course it is entirely up to Lizzie if she wishes to persist in this line, but I hope she will consider my advice. Lizzie, if you want to discuss it with me via PM please feel free to contact me.

Mornin' Guys! :0)

Now listen you lot....stop getting your knickers in such a twist else your eyes will start to cross!

The Moaning Minnies are those who moan. 'Tis perfectly simple. They moan..er...irrationally about Show of Hands, Seth Lakeman et al...and at me...

I've heard that the NHS has been plagued in recent weeks by a sudden surge of Moaning Minnieitis, as I'd 'disappeared' and they had no-one to vent their spleen over. So, in order to save the NHS some money, so that they can have yet another billion pound computer system installed...I decided to come back and thus relieve the various Moaning Minnie Pustules that have been forming in various places around the country... ;0)

I merely posted the details about Show of Hands superb new video...because I llllllllllllove it!! :0) Knowing how many people read Mudcat who ARE NOT Moaning Minnies...I thought they may enjoy seeing it.

A very cheerful Good Morning to them all as well! :0) xxx

Those who love Show of Hands are free to love them, those who don't are also free. You regard it as OK for you to have your say, vitriolic though it may be...(in my ever so 'umble opinion of course).....but I too am also free to write what I want...

If you don't like Show of Hands it's probably best not to come into a thread entitled er..'Show of Hands'... chuckle! ;0)

Be fair...I'm open and honest. I could have started a thread entitled '100 great things about Cecil Sharp' and you'd have all leapt in here, excited and over the moon only to find........'Roots' The Video....

'Scus me whilst I roll over on the floor spluttering wildly for a moment.......


:0) :0) :0) :0) :0) :0) :0) :0) :0) :0) :0) :0) :0) :0) :0) :0)

Oh..that's better... :0)

Now..where was I?

Oh yes...Show of Hands! Do you know that it's nearly time for their Royal Albert Hall gig! Oh...I am SO looking forward to that. We're going up on a coach with some of The Longdogs, it's going to be such great fun! AND...the lady from Exeter Museum is going too! I know! Isn't that amazing! I went in there the other day, with the kids and we went and had a pootle round the shop...and guess what music was playing in there? Go on...GUESS? :0)

YAY!!! Show of Hands....Their 'Country Life' CD was fair belting out...and...it got even better...because I ran over to the till, grinned widely from ear to ear...told the lady and her daughter how lovely it was to hear their music and then I noticed that the counter was covered with all their other CDs too! :0) :0) :0)

See...you can learn SO MUCH in a Museum! ;0)

Right...'tis time to go down and steal some more biscuits from The Napoli now...Do you know a man was arrested for stealing an orange at Branscombe the other day! SHEESH!! 1984 is here guys...several decades late..but...it's here...

I suspect that Show of Hands may find Lizzie's continued over-enthusiasm for Roots somewhat less disturbing than the political associations of some of their new supporters. Someone has posted a link to www.justiceforengland.com on their official message board. The aspirations of justiceforengland look rather innocent until you see that its website in turn is linked to the likes of The Freedom Association, who when I last checked used to be run by people who thought Margaret Thatcher was a bit too wet for their tastes.

There is however some light comedy there too. There is also a link on justiceforengland to a site called "We Are The English", complete with a picture of Winston Churchill. I don't think anyone has told "We Are The English" that Winnie was only half-English and that his other half was just a bit American. They are going to be just so disappointed when the penny finally drops. On the other hand, they've only had a century and a bit to find that out so perhaps they never will. Funnily enough, the minor stumbling block of his transatlantic parentage aside, I thought Winston won the BBC poll for "Greatest Ever Briton" not "Greatest Ever Englishperson", so I'm not quite sure why "We The English" have cyber-napped him.

Subject: RE: Show of Hands
From: Lizzie Cornish
Date: 01 Mar 07 - 11:08 AM

Here you go Phillipa, you can listen to the whole song here....although the quality isn't brilliant I'm afraid....

Show Of Hands Songs

And if anyone is 'out there' from the Show of Hands site...Any chance of those songs having better sound quality? Also the link is wrong in that it has an 's' after the 'http' part, which won't work if people copy it and send it on....I worked that out and always remove it first. ;0)

Oh and Scrump...well I'd love to be a Longdog again, but sadly one of the Moaning Minnies, the chief one actually, who started all the BBC bad feeling off, followed me in there and caused havoc. I left because I didn't want that site damaged by the kind of unpleasantness you see all around me on here and the BBC. It wasn't fair to everyone.

I said that I would go back eventually, after lying low for a while. However, I also said I'd go back under another name...but the more I thought about this, the dafter it got. I'm hopeless at writing as someone else, and would have been dead easy to spot. I also was very miffed at having to 'hide' from this deeply unpleasant person...and so...I went back under my name and was then put into pre-mod for doing that.

I won't write anywhere under pre-mod anymore as it reeks of control freaks I'm afraid. And the man who runs Longdogs was, in my opinion, out of order for behaving like that. But, it's his site so there you go. I've never written in Longdogs since and never will do again. And although I'm in there now as 'Manitoba' I never visit that site any longer. I merely enrolled under that name as there was someone I was trying to locate in Longdogs once.

And that is one more reason why some of the Moaning Minnies sicken me.
Because their constant bullying follows me.

Why? I've no idea.

All I know is that Longdogs was a great place to be, full of fun and there was a lovely group of people there who all hit it off wonderfully with each other. That's now gone. 'Whacko's Corner' where we all used to frolick around having fun and 'live chatting' is barely touched these days. At it's height it had over 26,000 viewings I believe, I could be wrong there, but I don't think I am...The Milometer on Whacko's has now been turned back by the way.

I also removed nearly all of my posts, as I felt 'under attack' from that particular Moaning Minnie at the time...which is why there are so many closed 'edited' posts from me in there.

A great shame and so deeply unnecessary too.

It was the same person who then carried on her campaign on the BBC board and created havoc and distrust over there too...And as far as Show of Hands go..well...you know that story. As Diane and her 'accomplice' (who shall remain nameless these days) poured scorn over Show of Hands and their music, I wrote more and more in their favour. It really became 'The Battle Of Show Of Hands' on the BBC board. That battle is now over...but I and others, are still free to discuss Show of Hands, as we would discuss any other band or musician.
This thread was merely about their new video...not a big thing in the Wheel of Life really is it...yet look at the reaction to such a simple thing.

Show of Hands Suppression? You bet! But it never works...and far from putting people off, quite a few people have come over to my Myspace page now, to tell me that they've been to see Show of Hands BECAUSE of all the controversy that took place on that board...and that can only be a good thing.

Whether they like them or not doesn't worry me, they're free to make their own decisions, and like whomsoever they please, but at least they have made the effort to go along and see for themselves.

Anyway...I very much hope that you enjoy 'Longdog' Phillipa :0)

Apologies for rambling...it goes with my brain pattern I'm afraid! :0)

Liam,

I guess they will be the same folks who in the early 90s took up Elton John's rousing "I was made in England" as their anthem - until they found out what it was about.

I pay no attention to the warped thinking and posturing of the politically extreme, ever since I discovered that my "Emptyhanded" was favoured by a white supremacist bunch in the States. Hell, they had the lyrics, they could read - their problem, not mine.

My accomplice?
No, I ride alone and speak only for myself.
Y'see, with LC it's ALWAYS somebody else's fault, even if she has to invent a scapegoat. Never hers. Oh no.

The only thing I don't like about SoH is . . . Show of Hands, and especially Roots which is crap musically and is, lyrically, socially divisive to the point of racism.
What really irritates me is that they could clearly be so much better but can't be arsed. Presumably because they don't need to.
They can make a living by not bothering that much.
I deplore that.

Phil Beer is a fine musician and I rather liked Alianza.
Same story with the Lakeperson, sadly now wrongly tarred and discredited as a result of the Smoothies' incompetence.
The Lakeperson Boy Band was quite good, once.
Then it went downhill because the Bros decided they wanted to be pop singers.
Nowt wrong with that but it doesn't interest me that much.
And a small proportion of the yoof LC seems so keen to cultivate is being fed the notion that this is trad music. It isn't.
We all know who these people are and did so long before LC came along and imagined she has 'discovered' them.
It's all so tedious, the musicians are embarrassed, everyone else is bored and it has to STOP.

I didn't 'discover' Show of Hands..they'd been around for a decade or more before I merely 'discovered' I loved their music via Sidmouth, as well you know.

And WHO ARE YOU, said in my best Alice in Wonderland Caterpillar voice to decide who people should know about and who they shouldn't?

Were you there when Bob plugged in? Did you rant and rage at him in the 60's and yell 'Judas'...and did you scream at Fairport too when they first started to perform Liege & Lief? It wouldn't surprise me...it's exactly the same thing.

I am so fed up of your patronizing "I AM the Folk World" attitude Diane...and that of your pals too....

I suggest you take it to a place where the shade is shadin' all day long. :0)

Oh and about your statement concerning musicians being embarrassed, I've had quite a few lovely messages from musicians over on Myspace, who are anything BUT embarrassed. Sorry to disappoint you Sweetums...

Over dinner, the name of LC came up.
Talk about seeing the whites of their eyes, not to mention the groans.

They are just so pleased that they haven't popped into her eyesight yet.

But, it's probably only a matter of time.

They will be keeping their heads down.

Very little 'pops into my eyesight' Guest Guest...(Strange sense of deja vu with your name there)


I have the most terrible vision...but luckily God invented someone who invented contact lenses...but you know what happens when my contact lenses are out...my ears take over! :0)

Yup!

That's why I knew that Seth was a star the moment I heard him...

I'll tell you a young band to look out for too..you may like them at your club...

LOMAN

They went down a storm at Sidmouth last year....

I've got so many names I could give you too...I did actually start a thread on the BBC about Young Folkies, but er...the BBC closed it down, took the title and main post away...

That's what the BBC do these day...Actively do NOT support musicians any more. They've just removed an entirely harmless thread on Ashley Hutchings e petition that someone started up to get him knighted for his services to folk music and dance, for no other reason that I started it...as 'Shesoeverthere'....some prat obviously went running to teacher screeching "Miss Miss...she's back!"

They'll now remove harmless and supportive posts on The Rainbow Chasers and Bollin Morris as well....but spite far outweighs support over there amongst the BBC staff and some posters and people in the folk world...

A very great shame, because the folk world that I know has nothing to do with the attitude that's on this thread and over at the BBC. The BBC should hang their heads in shame at how they're behaving...

Ho hum....

I think I'll be 'Shesbehindyou' next.... ;0)

I prefer the Bread Pudding to the Limpets though...they kind of remind me of The Moaning Minnies...

!!!! OOOH! Do you have any recipes for Moaning Minnie Pie at all...I know exactly where to find the ingredients for that! ;0)

Mind you...it would give you awful indigestion...Chuckle!

Wait for me, wait for me!

Aubergine salad/dip - (melitzanosalata)

INGREDIENTS
6 large aubergines
3-6 cloves of garlic to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons vinegar
salt

METHOD

Wash the aubergines, place them in a flat oven dish and grill them under high heat (if barbecuing, just stick them on the BBQ while the heat is still too fierce for the rest of the food to go on) making sure to turn them round until their skins are well, if not totally, charred. Take them out and let them cool.

Meanwhile, peel the cloves of garlic and press them through a garlic press (or chop as finely as you can).

Slice the charred aubergines lengthwise and scoop out their cooked interior into a bowl with a spoon, avoiding the bits of charred skin as much as you can (it is not unhealthy, just unsightly) and letting most of the oily natural liquids of the aubergine drain away. Add the pressed/chopped garlic, olive oil, vinegar and salt to taste. Beat the mixture into a coarse but uniform consistency with a fork – I use two spoons sliding across each other scissor fashion. If you want, you can put it through a food processor, but then it will become a smooth paste, whereas the coarse consistency is more "ethnic"! Chill and use as a dip, or take some on a plate with starters (that is how it is used in Greece). The smokey flavour of the aubergine is to die for.

A merry place you may believe
Tiz Mouzel 'pon Tom Bawcock's Eve.
To be there then who wouldn't wesh
To sup o' sibm soorts o' fesh

When morgy brath had cleared the path
Comed lances for a fry.
And then us had a bit o' scad
An' starry-gazy pie

As aich we'd clunk
E's health we drunk
in bumpers bremmen high
And when up caame Tom Bawcocks name
We prais'd 'un to the sky

Red-hot Massa still unbeatable in Bahrain
Thursday, 01, March, 2007, 17:13


Felipe Massa completed a perfect week's work in Bahrain by setting the pace on the final major day of pre-season Formula 1 testing on Thursday.

The Brazilian has been in commanding form all week at the Sakhir circuit, topping the times on each of the three days and establishing himself as one of the firm favourites ahead of the 2007 season, which gets underway in Australia on March 18.

Having set a benchmark time of 1m30.640s on Wednesday, Massa upped the ante to a stunning 1m29.989s on Thursday morning, as he continued to evaluate Ferrari's new aerodynamic package.

Despite completing just 45 laps and stopping work before the lunch break, Felipe finished 0.4s ahead of his nearest rival, Renault's Heikki Kovalainen.

The Finnish rookie's week began badly with a spectacular crash on Tuesday, but he has had no trouble getting back up to speed and shaded team-mate Giancarlo Fisichella by 0.1s.

Both drivers' running was interrupted by mechanical problems, although Renault said the parts that failed on Fisichella's car had exceeded their target mileage and were therefore not a concern.

The Renault duo sandwiched the two Ferraris, with Kimi Raikkonen setting the fourth fastest time after he took over the aero package that Massa had been using in the morning.

World champion Fernando Alonso was fifth quickest for McLaren, two places and 0.8s clear of test driver Pedro de la Rosa.

Rubens Barrichello gave Honda a boost with the sixth-best time, but team-mate Jenson Button languished in 14th.

Scott Speed, whose contract renewal with Toro Rosso was confirmed last Saturday, was the surprise of the day, posting the eighth fastest time.

Team-mate Tonio Liuzzi was similarly impressive on Wednesday and so far Red Bull's junior outfit has upstaged the more heralded 'A' team.

1. MASSA       Ferrari      1m29.989s

The moose recipe reminded me of a South African friend's response to the waiter in an English restaurant when asked how he liked his steak: "Catch the cow, cut its horns, wipe its bum and put it on a plate".
