I love BBC Berkshire

http://www.bbc.co.uk/berkshire/music...s/josaka.shtml

Quote:
The gig and the CD promise to showcase some of the greatest talent in the area at the moment. The party will feature live music from Big Wednesday, My Luminaries, Sonic Undermind and :heckler - four of the most established and respected unsigned bands in the county.

Apart from local bands.

Still, we can quote the BBC as saying "one of the most established and respected unsigned bands in the county."

This is Berkshire. Much prettier I'm sure you'll agree.

Not really, most of Berkshire is really pretty countryside which we never go to.

Most of Berkshire is pretty countryside.

There are a few crappy towns dotted around in it.

Chronicle's review of our song

Quote:
Reading rockers who contrast raawk style guitar workouts with Streets-style, geezerish vocals that manage to make lyrics like "take out your pen and I'll protract it, make a comment and I'll retract it" sound perfectly reasonable. For better or worse, a band that actually earns the tag "unique".
It's the best review out of all 17 bands.

Just quote it. Don't put Reading Chronicle. Just put Paul Kirkley, Chronicle.

you'd write that "[one] of the most established and respected unsigned bands in the county."

Wouldn't you? being that you've subtly changed the copy if not the meaning.
