The Hate Crown from the Folk Police

Ah! This must be the sequel to the justly celebrated Weirdlore album (the review of which PROPAGANDA magazine rather perceptively called Rachel & I 'Gothic and Northern'). Word is The Hate Crown is a tribute to 'crown' related Folkery - Crown Sacrifice, Holly Bears the Crown, All Around my Crown, Commoner's Crown, The Ploughman's Thorny Crown, Crown of Horn, The Sacred Ejaculations of Corn Crowned Phoebus etc. etc.

Personally though, I WANT to believe there's such a thing as an Insider Folk Conspiracy at the BBC, but, like the belief in Folk itself, I know its all just paranoid delusion. Alas, this is more than be said for Lancastrian Folk Free Masonry (a different thing from Free Folk Masonry or Folk-Free Masonry). Entry would appear to be easy - the initiation is simply to be able to eat a bucket load* of Hot Pot and still be able to move an audience to tears with a rousing rendering of A Mon Like Thee. I failed - couldn't get past the first verse without throwing up all over the front row.
