They're Recording Guard at Buckingham Palace

2406.guard.jpg Alice would be pleased. The Band of the Coldstream Guards has gotten itself a recording contract. Decca have conscripted the troops, and all parties concerned seem jolly excited about it. Marching bands and brass may not be your thing, but for patriotic Londoners this has to be one of the city's best-loved soundtracks. And think of the tourist selling potential: it's stirring stuff, this, and we'd buy it for a Paul McKenna if we'd just watched the real thing, in situ like. (Image/Simon Crubellier)
