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.

Flyering Mercilessly!

As I may have mentioned *ahem*, we went to see The Damned in Yeovil t'other night. We thought it was too good an opportunity to miss so took along some of our shiny new flyers (which included forthcoming gig dates) seeing as a room full of Damned fans were target audience.

I rather enjoyed myself, handing them out and stopping for a chat with people while they had a ciggy outside. Got asked "what Green Day do you do? proper Green Day or the American Idiot shit?". And so started an indepth discussion with all the smokers outside the venue about the highs and lows of Green Days career. The most interesting banter was someone arguing that Boulevard of Broken Dreams was a great song. Maybe, says I, but not a good single. It was good to hear the general agreement that St Jimmy kicks ass!

It was a nice chance to hook some new followers and to talk to people about what they listened to, expected to hear, etc. We'll be doing the same for the John Otway gig that we're going to in Tavistock tomorrow. Hmmm, the 3000 flyers that we got aren't gonna last that long at this rate but at least they're getting into the right hands.

For the record, none of our flyers were thrown on the ground. I have big issues with people littering their crap for someone else to pick up so it was nice that they stayed in people's pockets :-)
