    Not much really, Rad is training to be a Paramedic so has left for now, and we've got 4 signed percussionists but none at regular rehearsals!

    EEb has been vacant for a while, but Bob is still signed but not "regular"!

    Your all only jealous cos i had the sound of 3 dysons on that stupid thing.
    What a waste of time playing the tuba. I sounded like that Doran lad from Leyland.
    Thin, uninteresting and more like a dirt devil than a Dyson,


    P.S. For all those people who read this and think i am cruel, I AM!!!!!!!!!!!!
    But Chris is one of my best buds and still owes me 10 pints for a little favour at Wigan Beer festival last weekend.

    Cattanach, i love you. xxxxxxxxxxxx

    Doyle, I now owe you 15 pints... that's the best review I've ever had! I only wish I could replicate your triple dyson-esque sound.

    To keep on topic, Freckleton are a great band, who have some great players and have had some great players go through the band who play at some of the top bands around. They also had Doyley, but everyone makes mistakes!
