    Country music

    Yes you are misrepresenting me somewhat @snakybus, but I appreciate very much that you are at least willing to engage on what I am trying to understand! I have never proposed that country music should be boycotted en masse. I know there's an alternative scene and I am sure there are outliers...

    They know full well what the flag is and it stands for.

    PS - and I wouldn’t defend Dimebag Darrell either, or assume that he or any of Pantera are bleeding heart liberals. You may have noticed some of the singer’s utterances recently?

    I have not convinced myself of anything Johnny, simply that I perceive that it is a genre born out of a culture that was built on slavery and racial segregation, and that there are still artists who very purposely signal their support for that.

    That’s the Southern Confederate flag. This is precisely the kind of shit that I don’t understand. You’re posting about folk music as the voice of injustice elsewhere and then you turn a blind eye to this kind of thing?

    You know you're getting old....

    An Italian guy BACK IN THE DAY was trying to tell me that his favourite punk band were Battered Legion. He couldn’t understand how I had never heard of them, until I eventually realized he was saying Bad Religion. Still think Battered Legion would be a good Viking metal band name.

    Thread for upcoming reissues of interest

    It’s all just taste, but I do think it’s a brilliant album. However I also got the LP reissue a few years back that also includes the Baby 12”, which is just as good, so the timing of this reissue is odd.
