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.

Leeds Festival

Hoover and Morph went "oop narth" for the annual Leeds/Reading bash. Once Morph had finished her 4 hour "its not as good as Glastonbury" rant, we settled in to enjoy the bands.

Top of the pile for me (and somewhat surprisingly at that) was the Wedding Present. I've never seen them before and only have one CD from 1990. But every song was a winner. I look forward to seeing them play again in a proper venue.

Thumbs up also to:

Pixies
Foo Fighters
Juliette and the Licks
Mitch Benn
Echo and the Bunnymen
My Chemical Romance
Steve Gribbin

Thumbs down to:
Queens of the Stone Age
Kings of Leon
Dinosaur Jr
Razorlight
The Charlatans
and all the complete twats on the campsites...

We'd been to Leeds before so booked a Travelodge for Sunday night to avoid our tent getting burnt down and being forced to drive home to Devon with no sleep. Wise move i'd say...

Overall verdict:
Music great, Venue so-so, Camping totally shite.

You forgot about Mazza!!!

Marilyn Manson was great. My fourth time seeing him and he was truly brilliant, with a different outfit for every song (although I did think his long skirt and fitted jacked made him look like someone's Auntie).

Dave Grohl did a huge belch over the mike which would have made Mr Indesit proud!
