Subject: People who talk crap

A few years after I started the folk club When I was a Hell's Angel I drank 180 proof moonshine in Mexico, which was in South America and later in Central America. I swallowed a crane fly and was lucky that I didn't drop dead beacause of the strongest venom known to man contained inside that fly!

Hey! We could move all the BS into the music part of the forum just by titling the threads appropriately, for example: "People who talk politics at folk clubs" – "People who talk about alternative medicine in folk clubs" – "People who talk about conspiracy theories in folk clubs" – etc.

Uh, let's not.

Jim, with genuine respect, I disagree.

The quintessential difference between dealing with twats in life and twats in folk music is that if we take life generally, we meet a twat in the street, label them 'twat', and move on. In music, we are imprisoned with them.

I was postulating recently that I suspected folk festivals were populated by individuals that were social non-entities until it came to the poor old world of folk, where they can quote the album number of every Ralph McTell release from 1967, and have been to every festival in Upton Cum Snoring since 1943, and therefore I maintain that people talking crap in folk clubs is a specific folk music related pox, and have no problem with Woodsie treading this well-worn path.

I had a long-running [mostly good-natured!] duel with Ian Bruce's brother Frazer carried on by my insistence in guzzling a bag of potato crisps during his first number---I'm a rotten barsteward.

Yeah, but it sounds like chit-chat to me, not music discussion. With all due respect, this thread has been transported to the nether regions of the Forum Menu.
But it's nice chit-chat...

Bang on Skipjcack. My partner and I have long noticed the number of 'special people' drawn towards folk music. Stewarding at festivals gives you a real chance to exercise care in the community with whole herds of 'em.
To me, though, that is one of the bittersweet aspects of folk music. It does seem to give all sorts a feeling of belonging and an instant cameraderie, but it can take ages to find an excuse to dash to the bogs or the bar to escape the ramblings of some of the more 'special' amongst us!

crap is part of the rich tapestrie of life and Folk Clubs not only cannot escape it they should embrace it (metaphorically) if they wish to purport to represent "FOLK".

of course I could be talking a load of crap - which demonstrates my FOLK pedigree.

pedants and oxy-morons alike must be turning veritable sumersaults trying to rubbish the above.

Have a Nice Day.............

Hey Gervase, I wondered where you kept disappearing to!

It got so bad with one person, that they were known not as beer or pee breaks but *Eustace breaks. *Not his real name. It got a bit suspicious when the room practically emptied when he got up to perform... he's usually too pissed to remember his words. Luckily he's usually too pissed to notice the mass evacuation as well!

Reminds me of the night the rather inebriated old gentleman, who looked like he was rather down on his luck, and looke like he had several hard past lives as well as this one, got up to sing. There was this tiny night light on a stalk on the wooden music stand - he kept leaning forward to use it as a microphone...

I fell out with an entire roomful of peole once when I told someone what I thought of their theory about bo-diddly's rhythm, which they supposed to be 7/4 or something, then told the same person what I thought of their instrument playing, and then various others who thought I must secretly admire this particular other because I'd been so forthright. The whole evening was a disaster, and I havent been back, but I'd stick to the principle of saying what you think, irrespective of consequences, if you think someone is talking crap!

Talking crap is an art! It must be practised and honed...and whisky helps a lot. A bottle of whisky is guaranteed to make anyone spout inane twaddle...
