The gig was great, we had some new songs since our last visit to JJ's: I Want Candy (which was requested a second time at the end), I Wanna Be Sedated, I Can't Stop Dreaming of Injured Popstars and So What!
We've had So What! in the bag for ages but have always erred on the side of caution in case we caused too much offence. It is a pretty gross song: old men, goats, drugs - not nice! The first time we intended to play it was at Blackborough Village Hall last summer. Unfortunately everyone in the village had brought their kids, and as there was a 2 year old ramming a push chair at my mike stand as a constant reminder, we decided we had better drop it on that occasion.
Radar from BMAD came to the gig last night and, after he's seen us he still wants us to play his gig! Hurrah! He booked us for the Paignton gig after hearing Toxic on the Sounds page of the website so that was pretty cool.
We have abit of a shortage of gigs at the minute though. Terry from Entertainment FX gets us some bookings but we'd like to step it up abit. We're hopeful that once we've got some decent sound files, we'll be able to promote ourselves abit better. Role on the recording session.
I think So What is a luverly little ditty. Not sure what the audience made of it though, there seemed to be a bit of a stunned silence at the end of it! Maybe one to save for bike rallies and slightly more rowdy pubs!!
Personally found the first set last night to be a bit ropey. Made various mistakes of varying obviousness! Got really into it in the second set and started having fun (shock, horror!) Ha, ha, roll on the next one!!

There seemed to be alot of sniggering at the particularly rude bits of So What. "he he he Beavis, he said f***. he he he"
