love the pic lat!
yes, suspicious song lyrics, as per branding the horse/etc, and conjoured birrell's 'brand bs' (neatly presented as 'concern') also detectable to my extended digi antenna, which has a particularly good reception on a clear day such as this.
though those in foggier regions might not receive the unavoidable parallels as clearly. i wonder what region dave's in? i have a recurring image of him being violently sick in the big soc loos, after too much sport at the wkend. .............yet, he's alone, there's no one to help him.
also picked up: steak and ..........horse sex. ................but neither 'don't do no harm' comparitively speaking ...........and imo make a very welcome change from govt horse sh*t and cloudy weather?
But this time over on the jazz forum it seems....
haven't replied over there because I think Lat's post sums it up.
I'd rather have less Womad & Lassitude 'highlighted' on r3 & that budget spent on sending Dr Lucy & MAK on their travels. or supporting more WM apprenticeships.
Punters may be interested in this feature in the Guardian.
Interesting comment Globaltruth. I do dip in and out of WM output on R3 occasionally - there is definitely some good stuff, but I can see where you are coming from.
An interesting phenomena - this song has been played 259 million times on YouTube, and is a global hit.
Whilst not the kind of thing that fits in to our normal listening, surely it shows that a song does not have to be sung in English in order to receive public acclaim? Bbc controllers take heed?
Gangnam K-stylie rocks out (I am reliably informed)
Will Oilrig play it before OP?

We usually have the 'what do you mean' by 'what do you mean' discussion on this thread... Perhaps leaving the Ravi Shankar thread for discussion of him and his music...
