    havent really got a problem with horns, but whistles are so annoying, i have to move if someone is standing next to me with one.

    edit...i kind of misunderstood the point of this thread...has nothing to do with whistles in raves lol

    they can wreck a tune big time, but can also work well. e.g. breaking through by commix
