    Erm, I'm all for anything really. As long as the bands can play and the singer can sing!

    All too often I hear bands in the county that can't play their instruments or the singer tries to sing songs that are out of range.

    On another note... I found this image amusing

    It's certainly something you don't see very much of at Glastonbury anymore. Hungry Freaks Daddy!

    The record companies, the media and the gross ignorance of the young record buying public who have been fed on a diet of garbage for so long, the majority don't know any better. Music was devalued in 1976/77 and has never improved. I think it came to a head when a talentless pair of bairns who can't play are considered to be good enough to top the bill on a Friday night at Glastonbury. I refer to White stripe of course.

    I know what you mean Gleber2. All that 'fashion'. White's other band, The Raconteurs, on the other hand, are a far more wholesome proposition worthy of our attention.

    Might be worthy of your attention Loon, but without hearing a note I doubt if they'll be worthy of mine.

    Original sound from Caithness, no covers no copies.

    Bands that have used the forum or the general org to advertise themselves

    Cyanide,Estrella,Crimson Tide,Boss Hogg,Plastic Food Quebec,etcetc

    All the individual singers mentioned on the org in the last few months.


    All together on one night or a series of nights every year on a fixed date.
    Sponsored by Caithness.org.. or better still Tesco who are coming to Caithness.[good pr for them]

    Must be original stuff from various genres, no battles just all supporting this event to promote Caithness, the music here and create a path for continuous original sounds to get out to the public.

    Then from this big event can many smaller and much needed open mic events happen.

    Oh and if you're really interested don't start a thread with because I'm bored.
    Because music isn't boring but you could make it sound so.
    Patience is the ability to put up with someone you'd like to put down.

    yeah ...... a bit of me agrees with that, in the main-stream sector yeah......... but there are total mind blowingly talented bands, such as one called 'Tool' ..... progressive metal ..... there is no other band out there like them. They took the oppisite spectrum to nearly all other bands - by not being a commercial band, actually doing it for the love of live shows! and they can sell-out everywhere they play, because they have sooooooo much respect as musicians!

    Damn straight, in all seriousness John, I don't think you'd like them much, but you might appreciate their musical talents.
