Balderdash retains Bands In Concert Title
The Balderdash (Bensons for Beds) Band has retained their Bands In Concert Title after today's contest at the Les Dennis Aquadrome, Tilbury. They left the hall with the Poundstretcher Trophy and the top prize of £42.73 and a basket of fruit.
Conducted by "smiling assassin" Anthony Peasegood, the band gained 146 points out of 200, 3 points clear of nearest rivals Brass Band de Wildebeest from Belgium.
Adjudicator Clive Ottoway MBE said, "I needed today like a girl living alone needs a stalker. What a tawdry day of amateur music making. Quite sad, really".
A smiling Peasegood said of his team, "The band goes from strength to strength. We can now look forward to the Pointless & Very Far Away Entertainment Contest next month, where we will, of course, regurgitate the same old shite".
