Neither the Chillies nor yon lassies are in the same planet as the 'Drop KIck Murpheys' doing this, their. own composition as used in the film The Departed.These young ladies almost make them sound like a musical instrument. Or I might have been distracted, either one.
True but the ladies are prettier and make bagpipes sound tolerable which was the main point of posting them. If you can hear any bagpipes in the DM's version then you've got better hearing than me.Neither the Chillies nor yon lassies are in the same planet as the 'Drop KIck Murpheys' doing this, their. own composition as used in the film The Departed.
You are correct of course. I went to their concert in the Brixton Academy last year. A *piper is an integral part of their lineup and has been for some time. I was pushing my luck there, mea culpa.True but the ladies are prettier and make bagpipes sound tolerable which was the main point of posting them.

Have you heard the version of Fields of Athenry they composed / edited for a US Army sergeant killed in Iraq? Personally I find it a bit mawkish but for what it gave the family they're top blokes.You are correct of course. I went to their concert in the Brixton Academy last year.

This I did - even more badly than the Pipa - when my late neighbour at the current domicile became a Rock and Roll Walt. Less successful, then he died. Unconnected, of course.On a recent broadcast of "I'm Sorry, I Haven't a Clue", host Jack Dee reported that resident pianist Colin Sell
had been unable to continue with his forthcoming banjo recitals because he had left the instrument in a taxi and that a well meaning member of the public refused to hand it in.
ETA If you can't play an instrument, a recording of authentic didgeridoo music played very loudly works wonders.
Re white noise, White Noise - An Electric Storm in Hell was a band influenced by eccentric genius Delia Derbyshire. It's technically clever but absolutely barking. Technology has moved on a lot but cutting and splicing tape required a lot of experimentation, imagination and obsessive timing. This lot should do the trick though:Revenge is the best way to let your neighbour know how thin the walls are and how noise travels.
Look to see when his lights are out and you'll have a rough idea of when they go to bed and when they get up. If he works - I find that people like to sleep late at the weekend. Read on.
1: Get yourself a google home & some smart plugs.
2: Put Base Speaker next to wall (so it's facing it - with base turned up).
3: Create a music sample of repeating white noise - such as a child crying, nursery rhymes on repeat etc.
4: Stay at a mates house - and set a timer so that the white noise is played loudly and early in the mornings - or activate speaker with the google home/smart plugs - keep turning on and off in 15 minute bursts...
After a few days, weekends of this your neighbour will no doubt want to ask you about the noise. Tell him that it's just as annoying for you when he plays his banjo, and that whenever he does it again - you will retaliate, however you don't believe in an eye for an eye - you believe in 10 eyes for an eye.
I used to have noisy neighbours - but I sorted them out by doing DIY late at night, early in the Morning, white noise etc.....they soon came to the conclusion that it was better to just be quiet neighbours instead of selfish neighbours - and that what goes around comes around.
If you want to be a c*unt - get a webcam so you can see when the plod turn up - you can turn the noise on and off via the net, and make your neighbour look like they are wasting Police time.
But in the wrong hands, it's banned under international law. The problem is, those who have the wrong hands seldom know.I'm not bad on the guitar and for a few years have quite fancied adding a banjo and a mandolin to the list. Banjos are great in the right hands, you bunch of tin-eared Palestinians.
