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.

Cornwall Tour: Day 7 - Camborne

We didn't see alot of Indesit today due to him catching up on lost sleep. The rest of us went for a walk along the cliffs and enjoyed the first real day of sunshine. Ain't it typical that the sun comes out at the end of the holiday! I am feeling abit sad that we're near the end of the tour.

That's us, that is!We arrived in Camborne and John went in to find out about parking while we waited in the cars. He came back and uttered the words "It's fucking massive!". He was indeed correct. It had a great stage, lighting, etc. We sat in the other bar gawping at the A0 size poster with our mugs on! Gosh!

We were in the middle of setting up when the St Ives contigent arrived! Kane said he had to do a 13 hour shift at the Golden Lion the next day to be able to get the night off to see us. They'd paid in the region of £70 for a taxi to bring them to the gig! It was great to see them again and what an amazing boost!

The original plan had been to use both our PA and the venues. It was proving difficult to get them to work together so we went it alone with our Yamaha. I was so proud of it. It's got a lot of umph for its spec.

The boys in shortsWe went on at 10.30pm and apart from having the kick drum moving forwards all the time on the wooden floor, it was problem free. During Jetplane, Indesit and Hot stripped down to bermuda shorts! It's the first time I've seen Justin wearing clothes that weren't black, and certainly the first time I've seen him with so little on! The audience should be grateful though.... he was going "commando style" and almost mooned. The DJs who were waiting to play after us were bemused by the shorts escapade which was then followed by Justin climbing ontop of Paul's shoulders whilst they played. Well, we like to be different!

It was so good to play such a big venue and have everyone jumping around in front of the stage. Definitely in our top memorable gigs so far. There was much hugging afterwards.

Our mates at St IvesWe made sure we got photos with the St Ives contingent before they had to dash off in their taxi. Apparently they've got photos of us all over the pub along with posters that they'd got us to sign. Thank you SO much guys, it was awesome! We are really quite choked up that you made such an effort to see us again.

After they'd left, we got down to the business of packing away as quickly as possible. I'm renowned for talking after gigs and being pretty useless at putting things away but Justin was planning on going home straight after the gig, so we all mucked in. We'd started the gig an hour later than originally planned and with a 2 hour car drive ahead of him, he was anxious to get going.

Marnie did a sterling job as beer roadie, which included several Apple Sourz. Oh dear, this is becoming abit of a ritual.
