Barmy Army trumpeter at last allowed to play, and other media comments on Day 1

The Age's The Tonk blog, a collaborative effort between Alex Brown, Trevor Marshallsea and Chloe Saltau, reports

The Barmy Army's trumpeter was a welcome addition to the WACA Ground's outer yesterday. Billy Cooper, the second-most controversial Englishman on this tour after Duncan Fletcher, had his instrument barred under ground regulations in Brisbane and Adelaide but was given full rein yesterday since Perth has no such rules. No one was deafened, the cricket went on and life as we know it didn't stop.:

The Australian's Peter Lalor and The Times's Mark Pougatch also mention this in their blogs.
