Brass bands, damn them!
If it is one thing the British do well it is to complain. Brass Band are just a cross section of the great British mentality. Being a miserable git is a prerequisite to join a Brass Band and getting robbed is part of the deal I'm sorry to say. Mind you I expect Maurice Murphy often used to say he got robbed when he played top man for Dyke. Maybe Mr Lenton could add something to this, after he's been known to get robbed a few times with Desford.|
