surely all this battle of the bands crap just encourages people to think about music in the wrong way.

That's my general attitude but different strokes for different folks. Its the paying bit that's poo!

Just noticed my typing error in the heading... Doh! Why does that happen? Type something, read it back and then somewhere between hitting 'enter' and appearing on the web it changes to a 'numpty font'...:laughing:

It should be treated with the contempt it deserves....totally with Stripey on this one.

(By the way....where has your 'back' gone???)

What can I say... I went to the Osteopath.

Also noticed the my typo in the header is corrected making moi look even more stoopid than I am which is not far off a thruthism...

How about saving a response for when you're having a bad day? :)

To the question though - no, haven't seen it before, but thank you for bringing it to my attention. I had a look at the domain info to see if there was any link between it and Emergenza, there doesn't *appear* to be one anyway.

I wonder why one of the majors hasn't started their own racket along the lines of this, though.
