8/10 Dave Staff review, 10 November 2011

This record is a soundtrack to a film by Tim Plester which, despite its quite jokey title, is a haunting and emotional film about identity and tradition. Morris dancing is very much a laughed about and mocked pastime in England, but in fact it's as much a part of British tradition as fish 'n' chips or moderately racist 1970s comedians. This soundtrack combines elements of traditional folk songs and field recordings with slightly brooding atmospherics, and lighter cinematic moments. My favourite songs on this LP are the more traditional, folky songs (the song No Man's Land is quite beautiful) which are sung capably by The Adderbury Village Morris Men. This is a strong soundtrack to what is a poignant and emotional film and if you are interested in tradition and what goes on at many a village fete across the UK this LP will delight and enchant you.
