"industrial folk..."

Talking about my music yesterday just after “The Way It Was” made #5 in the Amazon Trad Folk download chart, my wife said in a Facebook post, “Beau describes it as more like ‘industrial/social folk’”.

Actually, that description comes not from me but from a Record Collector review of the Cherry Red “Beau” CD reissue from December 2007. They pigeonholed the set as “industrial protest songs and pastoral reflections”.

I don’t go so much with the “protest” bit myself but I have to say, “industrial folk” does seem a reasonable tag.
