    Default Banjo Alert

    banjos.jpg
    As we near Christmas, Greater Manchester Police are once again operating their annual banjo amnesty.
    For one day, people can drop off any of these shameful, dangerous instruments that they may posess, at their local police station, no questions asked.
    They will then be incinerated, and the ashes fired into space, just to be sure.
    * I urge you to take advantage of this scheme
    New laws, coming in 2021 mean 5 years for posession of a tenor's worth, and a mandatory ' Five Strings And You're Out" policy. The sentence is deportation to The Inbreedia Islands, in the Pacific.

    If you can believe that moving images and sound, can fly through empty space across the universe and be seen and heard on a box in your living room ?.. then you can believe in anything.

    Bagpipes sound fine, when heard from a distance. The distance from here to Scotland is about right.

    Rufus Harley was a regular winner in the Miscellaneous Instruments category in down beat!'s annual jazz poll until he was unseated by accordionist Art Van Dam. He didn't wear a dress, but often performed in a kilt.

    There's an old joke that goes:

    Q - If you drop a set of bagpipes and a banjo at exactly the same time from an airplane flying at 6,000 feet, which one will hit the ground first?

    A - Who cares?

    Definition of a gentleman - someone who can play the bagpipes but doesn't.
