    I notice that Stan Priestley died recently, but I don't think it can be that - he popped off three or four weeks ago.

    A remake of Brassed Off is what first sprung to mind for me.

    They're going to change their programme so it's not the same music as it has been for years?

    I thought It was quite ironic that this thread based on rumors and speculation about Grimey appeared on here, AFTER 4BR put something on their news page!!! No one I know has heard anything at Ll, and unlike lots of people who like the gossip, I could just ask one of the Grimey lads. If they wanted to they would say. However I'm not really that bothered!!! I can wait for this news. I like the idea of them recording the national anthems for the prize giving at the olympics. Much more original than a Brassed off sequel.

    The London Philharmonic Orchestra has already completed this task.

    Oh well.
    How about British Airways naming one of its new long-haul planes "Grimethorpe Colliery Band"?

    This could be a good shout. They recorded the anthems for something recently (Commonwealth Games?) so those up high will be aware of them.
