Which one's the token folkie?

Arctic Monkeys - Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not
Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan - Ballad Of The Broken Seas
Editors - The Back Room
Guillemots - Through The Windowpane
Richard Hawley - Coles Corner
Hot Chip - The Warning
Muse - Black Holes And Revelations
Zoe Rahman - Melting Pot
Lou Rhodes - Beloved One
Scritti Politti - White Bread, Black Beer
Sway - This Is My Demo
Thom Yorke - The Eraser

No really - which one is the token folkie?  I can't spot s/he/them.  There's always a token folkie.

Or should I have gone to SpecSavers?  Embarrassed

The Lou Rhodes album is very folky. The track Beloved One gets folkier as it goes along, so give it a chance!

Didn't like it much at first, but it really does bear listening to again, and again.

I agree about Lou, but for anyone who's heard it, the Campbell and Lanegan collaboration has its folky moments too, in an out-there, left-field sort of way.


Maybe Seth coming close scared them away.......

Muse do actually display talent. I'm sure Matt Bellamy was a classical pianist in a previous life.

Didn't they go to the same school as Phil Beer. Doesn't that make them folkys.

Did you know that, or was it a guess? Matt belamy was a classical pianist & them he taught himself guitar & started writing. I've still got a tape of them on a Manchester unsigned bands programme doing 'sunburn'. They are the only band ourt of about 10 on the programme that are still going (& I don't think they hail from Manchester....). I agree it would be nice to see them win.

I didn't know, but listening to some of the piano breaks in absolution I guessed he must have had training.

I love their version of Feelin Good.

Their not from Manchester, their from Devon.

Hugh Cornwell of The Stranglers went to school with Richard Thompson. But it doesn't make him a great guitarist.

We're just a wee bitty off topic here boys.

The Stranglers were never tolken folkies by any yardstick.

Good band though.
