image for Luting 'highly exaggerated' say Queen's madrigal players
Ugly face of one of the luters

London - The Gloriana Madrigal Ensemble is up in arms tonight amid accusations their voice is being drowned out by some over-the-top public luting.

Rival entertainers the Balham Balalaika Bollox - er...Luton Lute Society! - are set to play at a Walmer Castle's Cinque Ports music festival this weekend.

The two bands had previously appeared 'in concert' until recently when a feud broke out over acoustic liberties.

The vocal group claims the necked chordophones' string pluckers over-use of the plectrum has resulted in a sound of undue prominence in a tasteful oratorio-type situation.

But the luters have hit back and told the Gloriana boys to jolly well pluck orf if they don't like it.

Tonight a tense stand-off exists as public outrage swells on news of the feuding nonsense.

The Cinq Ports governor may now intervene to impose a curfew this weekend which would effectively scupper the rival bands playing/singing for their supper.

The Oxford Book of English Madrigals has disowned the whole shebang.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
