^ You say hilarious, I wonder how seriously they take themselves. Their fans certainly seem to be an entirely earnest bunch. All very confusing, really.

speaking of metal bands, and i know they don;t have acoustic guitars or have donde protest or pagan songs, but my dying bride, especially their most recent material, certainly have that atavist folk idiom in there.

My banjo is my pride and joy.

Unfortunately, no one wants to hear or see some douchebag show off his banjo.

Let's see.. I really like Kazuki Tomokawa (hope I spelled that right); acid folk singer from Japan...

I also like ... I found this band recently called Empylver, I believe that's the name... it's like folk songs that turn into black metal songs... great shit.

I also like Jandek. Folk as fuck.

I was looking for vids of Fred Neil (there aren't any unfortunately) and I stumbled on that awful cover of Dolphins:

End of the night song
Although this sounds better in a room full of plastered people.

Drinking song complete with Saturday night's 'bollocks'.

Shanty/ drinking song

Japanese choir doing a sea shanty.

At the beginning, these indie urchins did some great sea-shanty inspired stuff:

That reminded me more of Beefheart. Still, not a bad band, in parts.

Definitely. They do more typical sea shanty stuff on some of their ltd eps. That was the best youtube had to offer though. Still, a decent band spoiled by bad associations.

I have a real problem with Vashti Bunyan. Always think she's a cynical music industry invention. But listening to her she's really quite good.

How can someone who made an obscure LP in the early 70s, only to have a cult following of the faithful go nuts over her LP for so many years that she eventually came back out of obscurity to make some new music be an "industry invention?" She's one of the old guard.

Oops. I never knew that. Thanks for the nod.
