    Maybe, but essentially this knowledge comes from LBB being a British Comedy Classic aficionado.

    Is the Band of the 3rd Battalion, The Royal Anglian Regiment, a military band, as the name implies.Are they a brass band or just a marching band? And what does BOC mean? And also, why don't you guys use sousaphones?

    B - Boring
    O - Old
    C - (fill in this word for yourself)

    It's a term given to someone who displays knowledge beyond all limits of reasonability and normality on any given subject!

    That's a bit unfair, 2m-d - they probably don't use the word "Codger" in the USA.....

    p.s. although Magnussssssson was indeed Icelandic, perhaps he could impersonate a magnificent scottish accent when he'd had a few ??

    On a more serious note, a lot of British Brass Band performance is given seated - either in concert halls (or similar) or on bandstands. Marching plays only a very small part. Tubas are therefore more suited to the job than Sousaphones. Also Sousaphones are more difficult to control than Tubas, especially EEb Basses, and the UK band repertoire demands controlled quiet chords and lyrical solo playing, not just 'oom-pah' stuff. And, of course, we were playing Tubas before Mr Sousa invented his 'phone.

    Don't you think there should be a special font for BOC quotes? John? :rolleyes:

    I still think you get more of an Icelandic inflection in his accent than a Scots one IMHO.

    And Ignorance is bliss, so I'm happy as a pig in the preverbial. :biggrin:

    That's what happens when people share information on a regular basis. BE was almost the recipient of a full band fine last night, but his telephone call was a relatively urgent one and as such he will now be fined half the going fee, £12.50 and sixteen pints of a beer of his choice for the Chairman to sup. Usual fine being £25 and of course 32 pints. He had to tell me so that I could stop the kangaroo court being set up with yours truly as judge. If he does it again, I'll get him to run around outside the band room with his pants on his head.
