    As well as being into Metal and Punk mainly, I do like all sorts of music, including a Cajun band that I don't think exists any more called Flatville Aces. As far as I know they were from Southampton (the deep south of England!!) and I only have 3 tracks that I recorded some time ago from an Andy Kershaw show. Does anyone know where I could buy some of their stuff on CD ?

    Wow, I remember I engineered sound for them a couple of times, nice guys, very laid back. Cajan Dance evenings near Hurn Airport. Took a young lady along, and I had to have a dance myself by the end of the evening very cool infectious music!

    A quick google search has brought a lot of Cajun Forums as well a a gig list for the band! Yes they are still going it seems.

    Some of the google hits also mention my current favourite - folk artist Kate Rusby. She's got one of the best voices I have ever heard, a Barnsley babe too! She's on BBC4 next friday: from TVTV.co.uk:

    I'll do a bit more searching on Google then. Ideally I'd like to buy some of their stuff in CD format if it's available.
