Jeez, LA Guy, for a mod you are being a real hater. 'How does that feel, trad people' indeed. It's pretty clear that Ashton is an equal-opportunity imitator whose magpie 'style cues' could come from just about any area of human decoration. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised to see him wearing a penis gourd with an 80s band shirt and assless chaps on 'late late night'. But if I do, I won't single out the Papuans on this board and foist his lame ass on them just 'cuz he adopted one distinctive style cue from them. Bottom line: Ashton's style is anything but trad. You may not want him in yr court, but he certainly doesn't belong with the classical camp.
