    I don't know if this help with putting the timescale together. But Mr Morris said to me that he'd been contacted numerous times while on holiday in Cornwall. So I guess that would put the timescale for bands contacting him around the June to September period?

    Altogether, now!

    The scattered pages of a book by the sea
    Held by the sand, washed by the waves
    A shadow forms cast by a cloud,
    Skimming by as eyes of the past, but the rising tide
    Absorbs them effortlessly claiming.

    They told of one who tired of all singing,
    "Praise him, praise him."
    "We heed not flatterers," he cried,
    "By our command, waters retreat,
    Show my power, halt at my feet,"
    But the cause was lost,
    Now cold winds blow.

    For from the north overcast ranks advance
    Fear of the storm accusing with rage and scorn.
    The waves surround the sinking throne
    Singing "Crown him, crown him,"
    "Those who love our majesty show themselves!"
    All bent their knees.

    But he forced a smile even though
    His hopes lay dashed where offerings fell (where they fell).
    "Nothing can my peace destroy as long as none smile."
    More opened ears and opened eyes,
    And soon they dared to laugh.
    See a little man with his face turning red
    Though his story's often told you can tell he's dead.

    I would, but Mr. Gabriel's vocal range somewhat exceeds mine...

    Latest press release from Kapitol Forum seems to be a restatement of things they've said before

    Not quite - the bit about honouring seems to have taken out any reference to 2 years...

    I think I may have to report these off topic posts including mine as offensive. The only saving grace is that it is Peter Gabriel's era, rather than filthy phil's.

    Anyway back on topic.

    Registration at the areas was considerably more widespread after ............. John,d.Yms


    Before you go back on topic, Trick of the Tail was a brilliant album !!! LOL

    Nice pic of Alice BTW

    I think you are confusing me with my Brother, who quoted the song. He is the Genesis fan :tongue:

    One of the best fake pictures I have ever found on the internet (certain genres excepted ;) )

    I that all concerned seem to be so caught up in their own thoughts on registration that no one has taken the time to consider the fate of conductors. Many will now be spending xmas at home worried about regional contests potentially being cancelled and causing them to lose hundreds and in some cases thousands of pounds in fees due to the actions of selfish bandsmen.

    Also, they may have to work a little bit harder in pulling together a concert programme, instead of having a panel of experts tell them what they need to prepare. Where will it all end?

    Mercenary lot these conductors :rolleyes:

    On topic - you need to register with Spotify... ;-)
