    theres something slightly sinister about Morris Men ( this may be down to reading Terry Pratchett and hes mention of "the other Morris dance" performed by the Dark Morris men. also they remind me of the brilliant movie The Wicker Man.. very Pagan and one may suspect strange things go in when it comes to Morris men,

    I agree, there's something dark about it aesthetically, whilst a different subject entirely, as well as the allusions you've conjured Deliverance also springs to mind, similarly you can imagine there are some odd goings on and ritual behind the curtain.

    It's fun to imagine, but I'm certain there isn't in any way.

    I've seen them a few times, Aylesbury rings a bell of you'll pardon the pun.

    I think it's more of a Southern England thing, but I could be entirely incorrect.

    west country primarily but they have morris groups in yorkshire and further north too. you also have the Dark or silent morris teams that dance silently at dusk on october 31st , morris groups like the crows and beltaineborder morris.
    check this lot out and you'll see what i mean!
