Claire M Fairport/Steeleye - unequal respect? (78* d) RE: Fairport/Steeleye - unequal respect? 14 Jul 13


Hiya,

It's not as if I didn't have a say in what I listened to, far from it; in actual fact dad says it was me that wore that SS tape out cos I kept asking for it on.

I didn't know who the character they were named after was or why they were called that, I just thought they'd got a funny name. I did try listening to FC on one of dad's compilations but felt nothing; FC didn't seem as nasty (song-wise) unlike w/ SS I couldn't imagine them drinking out of crystal goblets in their little cave, saying ridiculously polite old-fashioned things to each other, or shape-shifting. 'Lyke Wake Dirge' reminded me of my beloved 'Gaudete'.

As for singing 'Farewell He' to 'All Around My Hat' now that I think about it that actually sounds quite sensible of course we wouldn't use those terms now but a little bit of reason & sense go a long way.
