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.

Making New Friends

This weekend saw The REOFFENDERS putting about 200 miles under our belts as we travelled to Minehead on Friday and Bridport on Saturday.

"Who would book this?" I asked sheepishly. Erm, me! Oops. Gotta get that South West map pinned to the wall!

Minehead was generally a quiet town on Friday night, but everyone who was out was in the Hairy Dog to see us for what was only our second gig there. There was lots of dancing and singing along but when we played My Way, the world exploded! People who'd been sitting quietly enjoying the music all night suddenly turned into pogoing animals! Crikey!

Our visit to Bridport on Saturday was our first gig at the Crown. A quick look at the handpumps and I rubbed my little mits together with glee - every beer that Palmers brew was there ;-) Oh the tragedy of not being the driver. We had quite a small place to setup. The bar is in the middle of the room so we faced diagonally so that the other side of the bar wasn't excluded.

From the opening kazoo notes, people smiled, laughed and sang along right to the end. It's great when people "get it". If you visit Bridport today, you may see one or two of our tshirts wandering around as the audience enjoyed it so much they kitted themselves out in this years must have fashion accessory. Even the landlord bought one - now that ain't a bad sign is it?
