    Similar for us. We managed to sign the percussionists a week before the contest and the only practice they managed to make together was on the morning of the contest but we're grateful to them for stepping in

    No arument from me. 4BR hit the nail on the head for us.

    However there were no other priorities for us apart from the area. unless i missed something.

    However they did miss out two awards.

    We also won

    Best Looking Bass Trom Player

    And

    Man Most Likely to fall over drunk at the results.

    I apologise, but I had to get that off my chest.

    Ha that's cos I wasn't whispering!! I had to play. Even with my tuning problems...which also came as no shock since it was so far out it was stuck on with tape and wiggling around. 4br have got it spot on....

    i don't remember that... mind it also took me two days to remember that id been sick on the bus on the way home, and then someone told me last week that id managed to spill red wine all over two people, , but not on me!
    Choose band. Choose bars. Choose more bars. Choose visiting all those bars in one night and waking up next to a complete stranger. Choose TMP. Choose a name. Choose staying up all night talking to random people. Choose to increase your alcohol tolerance.

    Choose your future. Choose band life.

    the twelfth being..."THOU SHALLT NOT FART IN THE CAR"

    So, hang your head woman!

    Please note...this message was written tongue in cheek whilst bored out of my tree (and a bit tiddled) on an entirely unglamourous business visit to some godforsaken burg in Denmark, whilst having to listen to a loud-mouthed Dutch bloke tell the hotel bar how good he thinks he is.....I'm going to bed!
