    Heya all. I'm Matthew Cooper, a student at the University of Warwick who plays with the Brass Society there. I don't really know what else to say here, except: Who thought that a drunken student band deserved to go on the Delph Whit Friday 2005 CD!? But that has its own place in another forum...
