WHAT Howard Byron thinks of as folk music is really "pop goes melodic" ("What the folk's going on?", Real Life, 22 March). His definition is just the latest appropriation of this much-abused term to revitalise the bland fare of the indie scene. Radical singersongwriters such as Robb Johnson, Brian McNeill and Steve Knightly are far more authentic than the brigade which makes alienation palatable so that it can be sold back to the public.
