That little Star Wars teaser drove the fans nuts in '77. I was there in Whitewater that year, too (very cold night), and I also went to DCI in Denver that summer. I still remember that I thought back then it was probably one of the most entertaining starts to a championship show (they were 2nd to appear in the lineup that night).

I still say '77 Garfield is easily the most entertaining last place corps to appear at DCI finals.

Agreed. Their staff seemed to have their kids nice and loose. They'd just let it fly! It was too bad their drum line couldn't hold up their end; they would have been much better than 12th place.

Yeah, Jim, for a 12th place corps at prelims they were a very strong 6th in total GE and an amazingly strong 4th in total brass............

But then came that percussion score...........23rd place! OUCH!!!

Even the Marquis, who took 27th place at prelims, beat Garfield's percussion score.

Reminds me of the '75 Kilties.

Exactly.

In '75 the Kilties had good percussion (2nd at DCI finals), but mediocre brass (17th at prelims....even beaten in brass by the 31st place Guardsmen).

Straight lines are good.

Tell me this isn't who I think it is.

I actually think Santa Clara used curves most effectively in the early years. Unless you are refereing to poorly executed fronts that only looked like curves. Then their could be a lot of contenders.

I concur totally the 75 Kilts Brass had no depth, its a shane because each section had serious soloists, I remember a week before Nats the Kilts recruiting non-players teaching them the drill and then how to play a horn on the bus. ( I was a drummer in a Youth Band and I was approached to play melo but declined)
That drum-ine was tight which contrasted and exemplified the weekness of the horns
