DWYLE FLUNKING VIDEO
Edited highlights of Sunday's dwyle flunking match at the Lewes Arms can
be seen at http://www.hutc.tv/
. Over £200
was raised for the Rhys Jones Memorial Fund.
Pictures have already
viewed as a slideshow). There is a good one of the band, who finished the
match exceptionally well-bribed, here
. The picture was taken before the arrival of piper Dirk Campbell
with a magnificent central European bagpipe called the dudu (I think) which
appears to be a hollowed-out goat with cow-horns for drones. It plays in G.
People realise this instinctively as their first utterance on seeing the
instrument is usually something like 'Gee!'
The next match will be on
Sunday 17th. August against the Lewes Operatic Society. Appropriate tunes are
already under discussion.
