I was listening to Front Row the other day and caught a piece about an update on English Folk which “fuses fiddles and squeezebox with dub beats and sitars” which I have to admit, appealed to me. Hey. I’m eclectic. It goes with the territory. It was about The Imagined Village.
(I liked what I heard of it up until I got onto the internet and discovered it’s a “project”. Still, as countless school-kids prove every day of the summer, you can get away with owt if you claim you’re doing it for “a project”.)
Anyway, when I heard they are touring, I decided to see if I could get tickets and I realised I’d rather spend 15 quid on seeing a band live if I’m not sure about them, than spend a tenner on a CD.
Still not entirely sure what to make of it.
