There is more and more electro music hitting the charts and although I too find myself liking, loving even certain records, I can't bring myself to obsess over such music. I guess I am old fashioned to fault. Still, watching The Arctic Monkeys rip it up at The Mercury Music Prize gave me a justifiable sense of ignorance. 
I like to see an instrument being played. To at least have some idea of who is making what sound and how. This is probably not a surprising stance from a folk singer I know. What do you think?

    I agree to an extent - music produced entirely on a machine leaves me cold too. That said, I really like it when music and machine merge and you get something totally new.

    Glenn I get what you're saying but as music has progressed, and it has, we have lots more tools at our disposal. Until recently I didn't get the whole electronic thing either. Having been part of a band that both encapsulates folk music and electronica I know that it is only the weary that don't take head! Saw you live at Spice of Life on Saturday and you were very good but I don't agree with you ha ha!

    Music creation is the real promoting of music. They are the ones for giving financial inducement to the tune, compilation or craftsman.
