Saturday was Beth's last gig for the REOFFENDERS as she moves up to Leeds v.soon. I just got this email from Beth, and as she's not much of a blogger I thought I'd stick it here for her. Brings a tear to me eye.
I just wanted to say thanks for the pressies on Sat/Sun ... Can't wait to try out the new guitar strap and the gold disc will get pride of place in our living room in Leeds! I should be sorted for a light for a while too thanks to the REOFFENDERS lighters.
Think we sounded great which makes me even more miserable to be leaving. Glad I went out with a good gig tho (despite the slight amp drama at the start (good recovery from everyone I thought)!!). Also wanted to wish you lots of luck for the future and lots of luck to my successor, Mr Cilit-Bang. Although I'm sure he won't need it.
I've gone from dreading and fearing doing gigs to loving it, which I think says a lot about how much fun it really is being a Reoffender.
It's been great playing with you and I hope I get to see you all again before we bugger off up north!
Love and punky hugs,
PS - and I didn't blub (not until I got home anyway, ha ha)
