Re: Scottish Power - aluminium foil?

If you watch their performance you can hear the unchanged steadiness in the high band notes when the sun was beating down their bag necks.

Re: Scottish Power - aluminium foil?

They gulped them down on the March up to the line....then didn’t want to be DQ’d for littering.... and indeed they did work in that bright sunlight during their performance.

The USA set is about $5 more than the UK standard yellow set. But $10 more than the (U.K.) Bb set.
