Piper in knife attack shock....

While proper members of the band were enduring the blazing 20c heat of Coldstream high street on Flodden Day, in a mountain-top village in Italy, whilst suffering the freezing 20c evening, an angry Italian was taking out his frustrations on one of the part-time members of the band.

Most of you will be pleased to know that Rimorchio the Clown missed the vital organs. He just cut me in the head, ha ha!

Reports that Rimorchio's brother Frageloni the Clown is about to sign a three-year deal as Hibs new goalkeeper are, of course, true.

Apologies for the video being at an angle. To view: tilt your head to the left, only after removing your Glengarry.

Don Costello in hoots mon shocker

Black Kilts Berlin

On Saturday night we hosted some players from Berlin's Black Kilts pipe band. We had a great night at the Besom, with food provided by Elspeth and great music from various band members and friends. Rebecca has placed a vidoe of the evening on you tube:

Dorothy from the Besom presented Gordon with a cheque for £500 for the Band, from collections taken during Civic Week.

Bad influences, good influences....

James trying to bring order to chaos and get one band in particular to observe some kind of discipline. No names, no pack drill. Dib, dib, dob, dob...

Is Oomy the naughtiest boy in school or are some members of the band easily led? We think the latter. Peter sets an excellent example by drinking H2O, balanced by the fag.
