Punk Rock: Classic and Modern

The REOFFENDERS are on an indefinite break. Never say never, but we currently have no plans to play. However, we had joy and we had fun... and we blogged about it. Enjoy reading and reliving some good times.

No Jimmy, but The Others come to the rescue...

Off we went to Bristol to luxuriate in the awesome music of Jimmy Eat World at the Academy... but no. Halfway through an afternoon's shopping the news breaks that the gig is postponed due to illness... bugger...

Returning to dear old Exeter, Morphy-Richards and I decide to check out some local hostelries and see what bands are playing. After terrible beer and worse music, we stumbled into the Longbrooke. Spirits rose immediately when we find The Others playing a pretty fair rendition of Boulevard of Broken Dreams, following up with Basket Case. Excellent.

The Others then proceeded to play a set of excellent "pub rock" tunes, but with the commitment and edge so lacking from many of their counterparts.

Well done lads, we'll be checking you out again. They've not got a website, but their gigs pop up on so pop down and see 'em.
