Haven't seen the comments, so I don't know what was said about the choices and our playing...

I think we can guess what will have been said about the playing - "A sack of cack throughout". Apart from Rob's 'Autumn Leaves', Dick's flugel bit, and Rhydian's trumpet. A bit of a pointless exercise our turning up, really; year after year the sole purpose of our attendance at Yeovil seems to be to put in a poor enough performance that we get a jolt before the area.

Does anyone know if 4barsrest were present??? And also were there any recordings made by the likes of Doyen or PM Sound???

4barsrest were definalty there, I think a few of them went to Norway for the nationals and the other half to yeovil no doubt there will be a podcast sooner or later though so listen out for that! keep checking their website. Hope someone got some pictures of the day! hmmmmm

Have to say i agree with you paul, (and i'm not quite as baised as you!) Camborne put on a good show and i really thought they were in with a chance. Nice to see Frank's personality reflected in the perfomance.......with just a hint of Briggus-ness.... :)


As for Polysteel- Can i say a huge thankyou to Phil Harper's bottom during Dont stop me now. Made My Day! :)

I saw him bend down and pick it up at the end of the performance, but missed what happened to it. :confused:

Well done to Polysteel!!!! Shows they are still clear leaders in entertainment, i'v heard that part of their program was 'dont stop me now' by queen, pretty appropriate :D who can stop them! Fairly solid result for A & N in 6th too, well done to both!!!! :D:D:D:D


Ermmmmm... how on earth can you justify the comment of clear leaders in entertainment?? Butlins? Spennymoor??? I agree they are a decent band but lets get things into perspective or have we forgotton about the true leaders such as my ex band Grimethorpe or others such as Brighouse??? lol :biggrin:

Regards
