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 Gig at the Famous Old Barrel

We played the Old Barrel in Exmouth last night and we rocked da house!

The bar staff had a great time and danced their socks off throughout.

Greg from the Old Mill Studio did the sound for us, with his little 7kw rig!!! Wahoo!!! It was rather cool to look up and see your sound man head banging along to the Sex Pistols.

During "This is Love" where I sing the quiet bit, I fulfilled a fantasy of singing with foot on the monitor in a rock stylee! I even had a guy on his knees at my feet totally playing up the vibe of the song. Yesssss! I couldn't have scripted that better.

Paul made his debut on shouting! Rock on! He did a great job and it was fantastic to add an extra layer to the set.

Captain Damien Black from Crush UK joined us on stage for Stop in the Name of Love. He brought his own rather fetching purple wig too.

We finished the set with an encore of American Idiot and Jet Plane, only to be told by Claire (barstaff) that she was locking the doors and wasn't letting anyone leave until we did another one. She asked for our loudest and nastiest song! Obviously So What was the only song fitting that description.

We had a fantastic time and are looking forward to playing there again, fingers crossed!
