Bunkonian Folkways

Sir Robert Bunkum up in Grimsby, having learned that I was about to head off to the USA for a while, has been emailing me YouTube links under the "Bunkonian Folkways" heading, e.g.:

"actually here at bunkum house we're much more into classic americana at the moment - like so:"

"more traditional american folk music to clog up your inbox:"

"'many young musicians today are reappropriating traditional folk forms, but adapting them for the blah blah go on a bit here...'
from Musickology, vol 3 chapter 2 - ltj bunkum (bunkum university press, private ed.):

[Black Fag are a Black Flag tribute band, here performing a cover of the Black Flag song "Six Pack".]

These clips, together with the Thomas Pynchon novel Inherent Vice, have been helping me make the transition into American culture — three cheers for Sir Robert!
