I'm guessing this is the dire replacement for Haigh Fest (R.I.P)

When I go into town and see today's downright scruffy casual fashion this picture shows it off at its worst.

That's just going to be/was a noisy racket, bang bang thump thump...you can't even go for a quite drink today.

You would'nt say that if you heard it Lizzie my love, although, you may have done where you are. Look at the litter forming aswell, not for me. What must shoppers and traders think.

These bands should be banned from the town centre. Far too noisy for us old folk - is there a legal limit?
Can hear these bands that play in the Piazza in the library.

Great days !

I was there from 11am to 5:30pm doing the official photos. Despite the rain it was a great day and gave some valuable experience to local musicians. So I drop me cyber-kecks to the virtual naysayers :)

Dave (Oy); As a naysayer, please translate the last sentence of your comment as it`s double dutch to us old folk.

Dave Oy will enjoy it, he's making tosh out of it, what else can he say. You must taken some photos in six and half hours???

Music is a language by which we all express ourselves....just because some music is noise to some ears it doesn't mean that it cannot be appreciated by others.....cheers!!!

Experience musicians Dave Oy, I was there and unlucky enough to walk by, and lucky enough to walk passed, as it happens. It was a shambles, they were only kids running the show and mostly kids watching it. Very noisy and shouting, not for me and not for a good many other people.
As Jean says, bring back Rock and Roll.
