Now, to the very demeaning 'desk jockeys'. To whom exactly are you referring? None of the people I know who have been commenting on the current topics could be solely described in this way. They are all heavily involved in the music actively, have carried out field recordings, have travelled round the country hunting out scarce versions, etc. In what way are we/they any more 'desk jockeys' than you are?
