If I had a choice, I want my fire department to be staffed by Guns and Roses (and not the tribute band shown on the awards the other day, the original lineup ).
Nothing like watching a fire be put out by Mr. Brownstone.

Does anyone have an English version of this article? My brain hurts.

i get it... when they get to a fire, they walk around the building seven times, then one of them blows a blast on the horn and the walls come down. makes perfect sense to me.

After they play a couple of sets, they all drain their spit valves. No more fire!

At least they have a contingency plan!

Dcho: it looks like perfect English to me. I think you must mean an American version.

Jeez, they're Royal Marines bandsmen, and they're going to be joining about 400 other members of the British Military because the actual fire fighters are about to go on strike.

The only scary part about it, was that some of the equipment they're going to be using is almost 50 years old.

I play the trumpet in my band and the Fark band.

That is all.

I'd like to see a PS of a firefight scene, where all the firefighters are replaced with trumpet players.
