Brass Bands

Brass Bands are serious stuff round Saddleworth. I used to go out with a girl who's Dad was in the Mossley Prize Band. What a lucky escape that was!

My Dad's Grandad was in Cheadle Brass Band (as was). He used to get dragged off to Band competitions; usually at Bell Vue. I think listening to the same test pice played 20 odd times had a profound influence on him!

They do sound good, though; I think.

Loved the film"Brassed Off" , Pete Posselthwaite played the Band leader leading a Miners band during the mining troubles in the early 80s , brilliant film , good laugh & very sad at the same time , ended up winning in the Albert Hall , well worth a watch , :wink:
