Is that not like asking what team is the best?? the Pool of the Souness/Dalgleish era or the Pool of the Torres/Gerard era ??

time moves on new techniques new styles diff attitudes from judges etc

Was the SPPB of the 70,s-80.s all serving officers ?? and if so is this still the case ???

Thats exactly what i'm getting at,

New training, better diets etc, same with comparing Lennox Lewis and Cassius Clay, different times, and is the sort of thing that promotes debate.

Post by Piping Connections on Sun 20 Jul - 14:25:50

so perhaps the question should be to compare

SPPB of the eighties
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hC0e9lBXXu4
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fVngvSLWVx8


to FMM of 2004/5/6/7/8???

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0kfArvI_QeI&feature=related

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SjmenFTj7f0&feature=related

difficult to compare obviously with the advance in recording technoligy. SPPB piping was awesome not keen on the tone of the backline though but playing is superb.

FMM well just FMM really

All members of SPPB were serving officers until about 1995/6. I left in 1994.
Today's band has non-police members.

Cheers for the video links. I forgot how good looking I was back then!!! laughing

The fact that there is no discrimination in society these days (at least there shouldn't be) doesn't mean that you cannot get a size 8 where the sun don't shine!!!!

Piping is piping no matter what era it's in, yes the pitch has altered, but the question as I see it is which band was best?.

No comparison.................the 6 in a row outfit was, piping at it's finest. ( note I said piping, not sound. Which was class too.)

Today's band has to be ( although they've slipped a bit ) FMM, their piping corp has taken piping as a unit to another level.
Which would I choose..?, going on pure piping......for me it's too close to call. Someone maybe can split 'em on minor/tech' things but fer me it's a hard shout.

Richard used a good example, the Liverpool team. However such things as diet 'n better training IMO has nothing to do with piping.
Piping is piping good or bad, at any level. Such things as civi's playing in the polis band too has nothing to do wi it.

BTW, heard a few wee wispers on my Redneck Hotline regarding the SPPB----------Brendan Murphy has left ( wtf )-----------change of leadership also? ( this came from someone I trust, but find it hard to take onboard ) don't shoot the rumour monger. ( a know how y'all like a wee bita gossip. big grin )

I have it from the horses mouth,

Complete rumour,

He has missed a couple of contests due to work commitments, he is in the construction industry,

He has not left the band, and to the best of his knowledge has not been ejected,

Whether or not he is there next year remains to be seen

And yes Iain, i 'have' asked him!!!!!!!!!!!

Well the horses mouth told Stocky that he wasn't going back. Angry_Ape Apparently there is a lot of rumblings in the polis camp. I suppose we will see at Lisburn at the weekend.
