You go first Eric.............
A very antagonistic question... seems to me to be a thread destined for closure. we'll see...!
Grimley. I thought their Nationals-winning rendition of William Tell was poor. :biggrin:
But you must admit that's some of the best conducting you'll see at the Albert Hall!!
I agree - this just seems like a 'who can we criticize and upset?' thread - not such a good idea, methinks :-?
Good Flug though!
I assume you're referring to the warm lyrical sound and technical assurance in all registers?
No, didn't think so...:wink:
Gastric bands are very over-rated
Alice bands mess your hair up on a march.
This is very subjective - we all have our alliances/favourites/perceptions etc. Don't think any band is over-rated, results speak for themselves, and can't think what productive discussion/debate can come of this thread.
overrated or elitist? Elastic bands are overrated , but i suppose thats stretching it a bit too far.
:clap: yep - yawn.............
Far better to have one about lesser bands in lower sections that are up and coming or have great players to look out for ?
Black dyke, Fodens, grimey, fairies, cory etc..................i mean, what have they ever done?
"lower" championship bands, think they are good but achieved nowt :biggrin:
Except making it to the top section where others haven't? It's all relative you know.....:roll:
I think it was a joke Di, chill out...
Time then, for a rename and enter the 4th Section and clean up for a decade or so.
er, not that that has ever been done before.........
Any bands who came out of "britain's got x factor superstars on ice" or any of those stupid reality programs....
fulham Brass band???
Lynchie will be sooo upset!!
My point is I don't think any bands are particularly over-rated. They're all just bands, they win some they lose some regardless of which section they're in. Even the so-called "Top bands" rarely win everything and certainly don't keep it up over years and years.
