    Feeling used, humiliated and degraded....

    I helped a band out on saturday night. Nice bunch, at first glance, but they had a dark, depraved and shameful side.

    They made me play "Is this the way to Amarillo"

    How can I ever look my bandmates in the eye again? I am unclean!!!!

    You wouldn't feel like that if you had a decent arrangement...

    Regretably, the only decent arrangement is only available for the Fulham Band...

    That's cheered me up, I'll see her at practice tonight!

    As for renaming it, that's a good idea! Not sure what to call it though. Just seen new Harry potter film, so how about "The fourth unforgiveable curse?" And forget Voldemort, Tony Christie is now "He who must not be named!"

    Oh hang on, that last one's already taken.... by Frank Bernaerts.

    With profuse apologies to Mr Will who replied above, of course!!

    "The Fourth Unforgiveable Curse" it is then. Not even Voldemort would stoop so low as to use that one!

    Should we write to Kofi Annan and propose an amendment to the geneva convention? Or do you think it's already covered under the torture and humiliation laws?

    Good shout!

    I understand that in military situations (Iraq for example) the US army play heavy metal records at the enemy to wilt their spirits and stop them sleeping.

    Not just heavy metal though, allsorts of records. In fact, I seem to remember that "Teletubbies say Eh-Oh!" was on the playlist as well! Combine the teletubbies with our "4th unforgiveable sin" and resistance would surely crumble overnight!

    But the DJ would probably be indicted for war crimes....

    Eeek!

    Being 5ft11 and rather trim (For a bass player) I'll certainly defer!

    Now where did I put my running shoes.....?
