    i think Nigel Fielding recorded the soundtrack, and Alan Hobbins sat on the sop chair during filming

    To answer the second part of the original question, according to the liner notes, Nigel Fielding was the sop player on "History of Brass Band Music - The Salvation Army Connection".

    Grimethorpe in Oz

    Grimethorpe Colliery Band have been provisionally booked for a return to Oz next year, last week in July - first week in August.

    However, this has not been officially confirmed as discussions are still taking place....

    thanks Mark for your comments. Black Dyke were here last year and sold out most concerts, could have done two in Brisbane and sold out both!

    hope you come to Brisbane
