22nd March. The Fellowship of The String

Apologies to Martin for stealing (there's no other word for it) this photo off his blog, but I couldn't help but chuckle at how the current BBRC line up have a striking resemblance to those fellows in the Lord Of The Rings.

Note how the Hobbits are flanked by their protectors including Aragorn front right and the mighty Tree Beard back left. Frodo appears to have developed a liking for the Shire ale.

Good luck lads protecting the 'precious' British list from the Eye of Little Chalfont.

I doubt I'll ever get a single record accepted again!

And where's Gandalf? Fucked off again twitching just when they need him to help with the Slender-billed Curlew

Since when has Lembit Opik, stood on the right, been on the committee?

@Alan The last time Gandalf was seen was somewhere in a field in Staffordshire mumbling about Oriental Skylarks, Pintail Snipe and how the BBRC never understood him ;-)

@Richard That bloody Lembit Opik gets everywhere, one minute he's shagging a cheeky girl the next he's scrutinising tertial fringes.

That's Bruce Dickinson from Iron Maiden front right, innit?

Was that Two-headed Troll next to Martin stopping anyone from going to the bar?

Front right was the dodgy folk singing type in Sharpe
