So just what are the Four Noble Truths really

The existential programme notes are all fine and well but what do you think the Four Noble Truths really are?

1. We will never hear the end of 1966 and all that
2. Tim Henman will never win Wimbledon
3. Nobody really cares about Victoria Beckham's "singing career"
4. Michael Moore is unlikely to be the next President of the Disney Corp

are amongst my first thoughts.

1. George Bush will never become a Sheik
2. I might survive without tMP
3. YBS will win the next Euros
4. It's getting sunnier in the UK and there will STILL be people who moan.

You can never eat too much chocolate
You can never drink too much beer
You can never turn down a kebab
You can never tell how ugly a woman is after 10 beers :shock:

Why not, Paul. I've always thought Carnival of Venice sounds good on a tuba.... good suggestion! Shall I baton wave or Will the Sec? ;-)

Four noble banding truths:

1. I will never play for YBS (not that I don't want to!!).
2. Beer follows rehearsal just as night follows day.
3. Flugal players will always believe that when tuning to electric tuners they must put as much vibrato on as possible.
4. Below the first section there is at least one couple in every band.

Now, I would point out that I am using inverted commas around the word "truths" here...

The 13th Duke of Wimbourne was caught in the nurses quarters at night.

The 13th Duke of Wimbourne was caught frolicking with the PUSS's wife whlist he was debating family values in the Hise.

The 13th Duke of Wimbourne was caught with a checking out a clippie's tickets behind a Routemaster.

The 13th Duke of Wimbourne was caught out at mid on. (He'd been flirting with the opposition's captain's wife, on the boundary, and a bat waving maniac was last seen chasing him from Getty's private pitch.)

I should hope so, otherwise there's a lot of 2-strong bands out there! ;-)

1, Basses will never play in the same tempo as the rest of the band.
2, Basses will rarely play in the same key as the rest of the band
3, Bass instruments will never leave the bandroom unless en-route to a job.
4, no matter what time, or in what order the players leave the bandhall, the bass player will always get served first at the bar

1. Put two front row cornets alone in a room and you'll get a row.
2. Put a horn player in the library and all your music will disappear.
3. Kit drummers will always play in a different time zone than the band.
4. You can never have enough Basses.

alternatively:

1. Anyone who ends up on the top seat of the cornets becomes Victor Meldrew.
2. Tell a horn player he's sharp and he'll think it's a compliment.
3. Give a kit drummer a new toy and thinks he's a percussionist.
4. Only the basses really know what tempo the conductor wants.

Or perhaps just arrive at contest without it and greet the conductor with the fear inspiring words "but don't worry, I think I remember it!" And you did AND got a mention in the comments. Didn't do my blood pressure any good though Mr Payn!! :wink:

Truth be told, Paul, it didn't do MY blood pressure any good either! ;-) Still, it focused the mind! :oops: (A belated big, big, sorry!)
