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.

My Mate Marmite

On Monday, we had our first band practice at Dunchideock. We decided to give it a go at the old Mill because the soundproofing is so much better. They also have a kettle for coffee making purposes - wins me over everytime!

It was a bit odd to seeing Greg through the glass headbanging along to whatever we were playing, but it's good to have an appreciative audience.

Paul arrived armed with lyrics and riffs for the Marmite Song and we got on quite well with it. I must admit that I find it difficult to find melodies and to sing along to a song doesn't actually exist in the recorded world. John is much better at improvising than me.

Kate passed on a CD of other songs that we might want to consider covering. There's a completely bonkers version of Supercalafragalista espialidoshus (excuse the spelling if it's wrong!), that could go down well at Paignton. I preferred the ska punk version of Seasons in The Sun and Kids in America. Now that we have a good set length, we can add and take away for each gig so that we always play a variation of set. We've got to keep the old classics in there as the core though.
