    But folk is the new punk. . .
    Really, most modern folk singers were originally punk singers. Frank Turner, Chuck Ragan. . .and others. Okay, I don’t know what I’m talking about.

    I was in a band that played early nineteenth century Tennessee miners songs using electric powertools and grinders. We called our style Industrial Folk.

    Just think – eighty years from now people “looking to get back to the old days” will be wearing leather jackets and mohawks and covering old Iggy and the Stooges songs. They will think of it as “folk music”.
