I'm about 3/4 of the way through this at present - a very interesting read, and plenty about the folky stuff J Boyd worked with.

this thread has a terrible stench of fail for getting to six pages, being about folk, and not having one mention of Phil Ochs.


serious levels of fail guys

Baaah, Phil Ochs fans. They're all the same. Turn up six pages late and then blame everyone else for not standing in for 'em.

Anyway, just to make you feel better Vulva:

^ Here's an Phil O. mention: he blows.

I kid, I kid. Actually, he's a fine songwriter and I enjoy other people's versions of his tunes, but there is something really squeaky clean about him that I can't get down with.

Kan Mikami is pretty great and all, but I think with him in particular it helps if you actually speak Japanese, becuase his words and sense of humor are at the forefront of fully appreciating his music. I used to have that enormous box set of his, but eventually passed it on to someone who could appreciate it more because my Japanese is so pathetic. Definitely an important figure though.

When you talk about a Japanese artist playing folk music, do you mean in the generic Anglo-American 'folk music' style (only sung in Japanese) or one that plays traditional Japanese music?

Sorry, I haven't heard Kan Mikami. I just wondered

EDIT:

Downloading this right now, so i'll be able to answer it for myself in a few mins.



 


Edit 2: Hmmm. I genuinely don't know what to make of it. It definitely sounds more 'Western' than I'd imagined - vocals aside, obviously.

There used to be some streaming radio feature on the Unbroken Circle site too; not sure if that's still part of that or not.

Nick Drake's Pink Moon is awesome. If I'm not wrong I think his estate is releasing more of private recordings or an album of sorts.

I strongly advise that you get on to Kats-Karavan. Some amazing stuff on there.

There's a Perfumed Garden from 1967 with Peel going 100% hippy: playing Zappa; talking about the night he'd just had at UFO; recalling trees in Hyde Park whispering 'dark green words of love.'

Not the best of quality but fuck it; It's still the best thing i've found on the net since god knows when.

Just stopped by to say that this thread is wonderful. Some of the stuff you guys posted is gold. I'm now catching the train to see what's going on in the post pictures of your knob thread, but I'll send you a letter.

Cold Spring Records have just released a 2CD set of folk stuff - hopefully not the industrial dalek strum of Deaf in Joon or other nonsense like that.

Whatever you say; I still think "But What Ends When The Symbols Shatter" is quite a masterpiece of apocalyptic (if musically very simple) folk music, along with several Sol Invictus LPs.

Do you mean this Melly?

 

CSR84CD (August 2007)
Various Artists | John Barleycorn Reborn
A discovery of folk music from dark Britannica. 'John Barleycorn Reborn' explores seasonal birth, death and rebirth on this double CD. Our cycle begins at Lammas 2007 (1st August), a day traditionally known for 'the first fruits of the harvest'. Pre-orders will therefore begin on this day. All orders also receive a free complementary thirty-three track download only set of further music.

This compilation explores the darker side of British folk music, evoking the mystery of our ancient past and peoples, the strangeness of their beliefs, arcane traditions and the remnants of this carried down the centuries as folklore. The set has an extended booklet with articles, essays and explorations of the album's concept.

The album is a collaboration between Cold Spring and Woven Wheat Whispers, a folk music artist community and legal download service (where the third part complementary part will be available). Curated by Mark Coyle.

^^^ Jawohl, Herr Demonrail.

Savage Clone - I much prefer Tony Wakeford's stuff, finding it more melodic and somewhat less obsessed with ze Germans and all that jazz. Have also said hello to T Wakeford in the flesh once, and he seemed a pleasant enough geezer.
