|Description ||The music-makers in the 2am torchlit procession at the 2005 Solstice were led by a very wicked-looking conductor -horned and horny, but basically half 'toddlers'-playgroup- painting-session', and half 'green tiger'! All eyes were drawn to his huge drumstick, and the word 'Guilty' on his drum (maybe it referred to the trainers!) Un-coordinated footwear apart, he was the most enthralling character in the procession. The Red Wicker Lady, raised aloft, bobbed along ahead, grinning from ear to ear, with this 'Satyr' walking backwards behind her. The flaming torches and insistent drum beats created mesmerising, primal, pagan energy - you just had to dance along. The highlight of the night.|

|How about this outfit to see the New Year in????????|
|Reminds me a bit of when the alien bursts out of John Hurt in the film Alien. Although a bit lower down.|

|Hey thanks! 'The highlight of the night' i'm a drummer in this guys band, we're a london based samba band called Barking Bateria. i think (?) we were asked to play by Arthur Pendragon a long time ago and now we play every Solstice, just for then we're the Kings Drummers . I'm sure I speak for the whole band when I say I'm glad you liked the beats we banged out on the Solstice. It's a long night for us, cos we play the sundown at Avebury before we make our way to Stonehenge to play the sunrise, it takes a lot of energy but it's a lot of fun! It's nice to know that, that energy is passed on to the crowd. Thanks again|
|Thanks Dr. Chunky - you were all great and hope to see, hear, dance along, with you this year!|
