Record Label[edit]

• Can anybody confirm the record label? Pantone's site is thin. Audioweevil 22:53, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

Proposed merge[edit]

I've flagged this as being suitable for merging. It appears that these two articles are relating to the same group. However some details appear to be contradictory so will leave the actual merge to someone who can discern which information is more accurate. It could also benefit from being categorized.

"It appears that these two articles are relating to the same group." WHICH two articles?---Dagme (talk) 15:12, 17 June 2012 (UTC)

The one with all caps first letters is more recent. I created both, this one after adjusting the format. The change to location of the band was done recently and is more accurate than the other. In other words: please merge with 'Hypnotic Brass Ensemble' overriding 'Hypnotic brass ensemble' Audioweevil 01:43, 3 April 2007 (UTC)

To WHERE? ---Dagme (talk) 15:12, 17 June 2012 (UTC)


Reading through the article, I can't seem to find any, even remote, genre description - other than it's a brass band... which doesn't say much, really. Now, the article is categorized under "American jazz ensembles," but isn't relevant to discuss the other elements i their music? It's obviously, to anyone who's heard their music, that it isn't purely jazz, but has many influences from funk and blues to reggae, swing, lounge and tribal harmonics. Cue investigation! Cheers.

These guys were featured on NPR this morning. Here is the link:

The segment includes interviews and a sampling of the music. I hope somebody expands the article to bring this group the attention it deserves.---Dagme (talk) 15:07, 17 June 2012 (UTC)

Border Security Australia[edit]

Just caught the tail end of them most recent Border Security Australia episode. HBE were featured - into Australia for a tour, their drummer was detained and temporarily denied entry into Australia because of irregularities on his visa (not quite sure as I only saw the end of the episodes). The episode will soon be up for viewing online on the yahoo 7 page, but only for a week, if anyone is interested in referencing it for the article. +|||||||||||||||||||||||||+ (talk) 09:20, 24 March 2013 (UTC) The episode can be viewed at: — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:01, 12 December 2013 (UTC)
