Reader Letter: When it comes to the World Cup we should beat the opposition - not a drum
- Credit: Archant
One reader thinks the football can do without musical accompaniment. Do you agree?
Am I a spoilsport for thanking Phil Cutter of the Murderers for forewarning that the England match will be shown that evening 'accompanied' by a four piece band?
I enjoy watching football and part of the enjoyment is the atmosphere. However, when it comes to England's games and with apologies to the excellent team of TV commentators, I have to turn the sound right down.
Why? Because the incessant drumming drives me crazy.
Occasional encouragement and celebratory chords in the event of an England goal and to hail a win are acceptable, but this continuous 'noise' is not music to my ears.
You may also want to watch:
Any thoughts of attending a match and being within earshot of that drum fill me with dread. The opposition should be beaten not a drum.
Am I alone in this? I am a musician and enjoy music of many genres but it should be composed not imposed.
