The REOFFENDERS

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.

Great Night at the Strand

Swords of 1000... erm... lightsabersWe had a great gig last night at the Strand in Exmouth. The new managers only moved in 3 days ago so we were keen to prove our worth and although the pub was a bit quiet during the first set, we went down a storm in the second.

Radar did the sound for us and acted as roadie for John, feeding his mike lead out when he went on a wander, holding the stool when John decided to climb on the furniture - it was fun to see Radar keeping up with the chaos that is Mr Hoover.

Paul added more backing shouting to his repertoire which really beefed out the songs and Brucie put some lovely little fills in on the drums. Si looked very confident on bass. I particularly liked his running up and down the frets on "Should I stay or should I go".

Cheers to Connor and Sam for the warm welcome.

Paul's guitar solo deserved some recognition. It was out of this world (well ... pub anyway!) With no applause at the end it seemed the audience were really fooled by John's inflated toy.

How can you be so harsh? Inflated toy? How can you say that? I'll admit that for easy transport my Fender Blowupcaster has an element of inflatability, but it's this revolutionary construction that gives it immense strength coupled with lightness of feel.
