GUEST,Jim Knowledge Heckling at Folk Clubs (77* d) RE: Heckling at Folk Clubs 30 Jan 20


I `ad one of them academics from Durham Uni. in my cab the other day. `e knew all about us bands down in "The Smoke" and the South East. `e was writing `is thesis about audience behaviour in theatres and clubs and the "psyche" that lies be`ind it. (`ark at `im!)
`e said, `ere Jim, you and your band `ave been at it for some considerable time. What`s your experience of audiences?"
I said, "I can only remember one occasion when a club we were doing in Sussex was taken over that night by a rugby team that `ad just won it`s division. They were a most un-ruly mob, `igh on "`arvey`s Best Bitter". The agent faxed me to see `ow we got on."
`e said, "That was thoughtful of `im."
I said,"I told `im. I replied "Audience with us all the way. We shook `em off at the station!!""


Whaddam I Like??
