    I've spent some time recently adding all the Norwegian bands I could find on IBEW to I've done the best I could regarding locations (quite often simply the town of the band, as no rehearsal hall information that I could find is listed on many sites [but then my Norwegian is not great, even with the aid of Google translate...]), but if somebody more familiar with the scene wanted to cast their eye over the results and correct any obvious errors, that would be very helpful. I must say, I'd had no idea that the Norwegian scene was quite so long-established and bustling. Must get over there some time.

    Sweden next!

    Thanks for the offer Andy! Truth be told though, I'm asking for people to have a quick squizz at the Norwegian points on the map to make sure they look right, not for help with translations, as I've done all the website peering already. Someone who knows the scene who can hover over each point in turn to confirm that I haven't put any band anywhere daft would be doing a useful job.

    Are they good at Ragtime?

    They were close to the very first on the (alphabetical) list that I took from IBEW! I'd put them in the centre of Randaberg (where their marker was easily lost behind that for Randaberg Musikkorps), but have found a more exact address on their website now, on the East side of the foreland.

    So are those the premises listed on the Alexander Brass website at Smaragdstien 3, 4070 Randaberg?

    Sweden, Denmark, Finland also as complete as I can make them now.

    Wales and Scotland must be close too, if anyone wants to cast an eye...

    North of England, Republic of Ireland, Oxfordshire

    Think these three areas are pretty much there now... Anyone with better local knowledge who can check would be doing a much appreciated job!
