Default Music at Rallies Poll

Well my taste of music is well broadcasted but in all seriousness would you like to see other types of music at rallies?

I like to hear at rallies
If were talking what the DJ's playing

Rock new and old, but they seem to stick to the classics to much
Punk, never hear enough
Ska, really dont hear enough and it always goes down well.
Bit of country/bluegrass

Now if were talking live music, I bloody hate 80's rock bands, the ones that still gig usually have one original member ( 9 times out of 10 never the singer) play their one hit about three times, do songs you've never heard before or bad covers. Seems that most rallies think all anyone wants is 80's rock bands, dont understand, they werent good in the 80's and they are no better now.
There are some bloody amazing cover bands that do lots of rock classics which lets face it when you've had a skin full are just what you need, why not some of the punk and ska cover bands an all, as if all you hear is rock it gets a bit boring.
As for modern music rap etc, there are plenty of places you can go to listen to this, lets keep it there and not at rallies

I do enjoy most rallies I go to as there is a wide variety of music being played. While I do hate the sound of the dance tent, there is usually a blues and rock tent going at the same time. I do miss alot of country, but I bring an MP3 player and speakers with anyway, so I get my daily dose

Seems like the only country most people know of here is Steve Earle (country rock) and the OLD stuff.

I'd say this, plus some Rock 'n' Roll / Rockabilly, Levellers/Waterboys style folkie stuff, 60's style Garage & heavier Indie.

Keep the Dance, R&B, Garage (where do they get off nicking the name of a genre that allready existed anyway?!?!?!?!) & Hip Hop where it belongs - with the Chavs.

I totally agree with the comment on 80's Rock bands, too many with too few original members!

I did run a survey for a while on the Wozwolf website and one of my questions was about bands. (had to drop the survey due to difficulty of managing it when away from computer for months at a time).

But I processed enough results for it to be confirmed that people are fickle.

Whatever people say, the only test is to see and hear the response of the audience.

I remember once being stood outside the pavilion at Newark showground as a drunken reveller told me how no one wanted to see or hear Glam rock bands. I strolled inside to see the dance floor heaving with dancers and people sat around jigging along to it, think it was Diamond Dogz on stage at the time

I was a punk with no hair Im assuming you was a skin in the late 60's then Simon? Just wondering as Oi (hate the name Oi, garry Bushell is a twat. Street Punk was a far better name) was as much part of the Skinhead scene as anything.
Anyway, rally music? Yep, Punk, Oi, Ska, 70's rock etc. Keep Rap and dance music in the night clubs.

S'pose I'm guilty as charged on that one tease but havin' played your Garth Brooks, Brooks & Dunn, Alabama sort of stuff for a few years in country bands tourin' in Europe I got a little jaded at the sameness of modern male country singers an' prefered goin' back to singer/songwriters playin' country/folk, works for me along with a good splash of country rock Skynyrd/Drive By Truckers/Outlaws (Green Grass & High Tides for those of you that ain't heard 'em). Blue's sent me various country/alt.country stuff an' I love it. The female country singers have much more individuality about them with Emmylou Harris an' Dolly Parton at the top of the pile IMHO. Emmylou's new album with Mark Knopfler is rather good. Neil Diamond's latest is good too.

I think there's room for many different kinds of music at rallies. Yeah, we've got a rock covers band on Saturday nite at the 'Breezer' this summer but we've a rockabilly band Friday nite. We've had punk bands, we've even had a band that played a weird ecclectic mix of English folk, gypsy jazz an' Eastern European folk with a punk attitude. Oh yeah, an' we had the Beer Monsters too

I play all sorts of stuff, here's the set list I've been workin' round this year so far. I've put who the songs are by 'cos I do get the occasional shout from the audience of "Play somethin' we know" .... Then again, that's usually met by "OK, here's one you'll know" an' play 'Old Macdonald Had A Farm'.

SET 1

Fishermanís Blues (Waterboys)

Highway To Hell/Route 666 (AC/DC aní just about everyone)

I Hate This Town (STEViE)

I Feel So Good (Richard Thomson)

Whiskey In The Jar (The Dubliners)

Long Time Gone (STEViE)

The Sands Of Iwo Jima(Drive By Truckers)

Too Poor For Trailer Trash(STEViE)

The Baghdad Cafe (STEViE)

Johnny Come Lately (Steve Earle)

The Guinness Trees Grow Big In Heaven(STEViE)

The Devilís Deal(STEViE)

Mattie Groves (Fairport Convention)



SET 2

London Calling (The Clash)

Retribution Song (STEViE)

Mississippi Kid (Lynyrd Skynyrd)

The RoadKill Cafe (STEViE)

That What You Like (STEViE)

Twenty Three Months, Five Days ....(STEViE)

1952 Vincent Black Lightning (Richard Thomson)

You Canít Win (STEViE)

So Many Miles To Go (STEViE)


Hand Me My Old Mandolin (STEViE)


Irish Rover (The Dubliners)


Ghost Riders (Johnny Cash)

After listening to Quill at the CWBB at the weekend, I'd definitely love to hear more celtic/folk/rock type stuff.

Mostly Autumn would be a good band for a decent sized rally too

the reason i ask, is that whenever there is an upbeat band (such as the quills at the celtics) there is more audience participation than your average rock covers band ska raggae celtic seem to get the people moving the most

so rally organiser please take note

Nope Rob late 70's to late eighties, nope as far as I was concerned and most of my mates Oi street punk etc was just for punks with no hair, big boots ,black flight jackets, that used to like to Siegh heil all the time, each to their own but to me that had nowt to do with being a skin as Skinhead came about from mods and a love of Jamaican music.


Couldnt agree more about the comments about the fiddle type of music, it gets you going.
The dance tent at the Bulldog does go down well, but bear in mind its something different and there's 25,000+ people there so you need a wide spread of music

Not really the place to get into the history and idea of skinheads but it wasnt set in stone simon. Some so called original skinheads listened to rock , motown, northern soul so on so forth. It was working class movement not a black Ska movement. To say the idea was just about one thing is as daft as saying riding motorbikes is just about black leathers and rock and roll. Oi and the likes were just a natural progression.

Well whatever the music, does it have to be so fecking loud?

Does anyone really go to a rally with the intention of sitting, not being able to speak to each other because you can't even shout into someones ear to make yerself heard?

You can;t even stand at the back of the marquee and make yourself heard, and if I wanted to stand outside in a field chatting to my firends, I could arrange to do that in my garden.

A few slower more medolic tunes would be nice too-we don't all still want to listen to a Motorhead numer sung at full belt

Yeah I appreciate that, much like some bikers today listen to country or dance music, but northern soul was way after the start of original skins and rock was as well really, we are talking 1965-69, and you must appreciate that it came from the working classes mixing and listening to mainly jamaican music, hence Ska, Bluebeat and some early reggie, Im not disputing there are different types there was originals and the ones that progressed. Bit like the rockers of the 50/60's to the bikers of today, you still have your original type of rocker''59 club etc''

It's not just about the music but more about how a band performs and entertains in my opinion.
Good music played badly or in a sterile manner is far worse then bad music played interactively with a participating audience.

A bit of everything does it for me; my pet hate is what I call "Mustang Sally Syndrome" where you get several bands at the same rally all doing a lot of the same songs.

Rock, blues, folk, country, dance, couldn't give a bugger as long as it's well played and there's a good variety

we saw the clangers at the tsunami - they also play at the NABD

good old fashioned 70s punk

I do like summat a bit different

the beer monsters do a variety which is brilliant

but most of all - whatever music it is

it has to be entertainment with the band having a laugh with the audience

one of the best I saw was Freddy & the Dreamers at PI last year - not because I like their music - but because 1. they can play their instruments and 2. they put on a real show

excellent stuff

so I don't really mind what the musc is

and cos I'm getting old I also prefer it not to be deafening lol
