The Nationals (British Nationals that is) of this year has been battled out this weekend. And since the test piece was “easier” than usually a surprising result were to be expected.
However this did not happen, but it was good to see Grimethorpe (for all you non-brass-people, that is the band that starred in Brassed Off) take a big title. They have only won entertainment stuff for a while and is such a great band so they deserved it.
Black Dyke missed out on a double (Open + Nationals) but still is always up there. Impressive.
When will Buy as You View Cory (third) ever win something? They haven’t done that in a while, to my knowledge. Maybe time to turn away from the old style playing that they are into (with fast, uncontrolled vibrato as one of the main feature).

Filmtip of today
Saw a movie yesterday that i must recommend; Lucky Number Slevin
It’s in the same spirit as The usual suspects and i really enjoyed it.
Great performances by some great actors also. Lucy Lui was awsome and
the guy (Josh Hartnett) playing the lead character did a great job
So if You havn’t seen it … Do it now! It is well worth the time and
Back from the road
Returned to Stockholm from a small tour… exhausted of course.
Funny how playing and spending so much time together bonds you and makes
new friends. I really had a great time with the band.
The playing from the band also took of, and became better and better.
For me too, even though a major split spoiled the very last note of the
encore. Really embarrassing, but hey - that’s
Gave (swedish expression) blood on my
tooth though. More. More practice!
