GUEST,Tom Bliss Moulettes - not folk say gatekeepers (185* d) RE: Moulettes not folk say gatekeepers 14 Nov 10


I thought they sounded a bit PentAnglish (who were frequently tarred with the F word back in the day), and they're certainly a lot more 'Acoustic' and 'English' (both of which words are synonyms with "F" to many) than the Mumford (who are currently being classified as "F" in every media outlet on the planet). Plus they use classical instruments in a reasonably "F"in style.

I think it is perfectly reasonable for them to wonder why fRoots do not feel they fitted his category - assuming they do. If so, I'd suspect that Ian's reasoning might have more to do with the brevity of their 'Roots' than any signal failure to be 'f.'

Good stuff though - and if they get a bit more successful - or merely learn a couple of trad songs... [wink/devil]
