If there's one thing I've always said, it's that there aren't enough banjo-and-sousaphone-based bands featuring drummers dressed as mummies.

Scraping the bottom of the boot.
Although to be honest, when you've seen one, you've seen them all.

The trio above go by the name of Iron Boot Scrapers (the clue was in the sousaphone), and were standing in New Road this afternoon playing 'I Will Survive' by Gloria Gaynor. Although they also do 'Love Machine' by Girls Aloud. I didn't stop long, as I was on my way to buy a birthday card for Big Sis and I was nearly in sight of the pound shop, but having got home I looked them up on MySpace, and guess what I found...

(No, go on, guess)...

Ian Patrick Harris, the bloke on the left with the banjo, played the musical saw on Keane's latest album. No, seriously. The proof is here. He's the one at the front with the carpentry equipment. And there was me thinking he was just a bloke with the horn who wants his mummy.
