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.

Mental as Anything

So here I am at stupid o'clock in the morning writing blogs because my body clock thinks I'm nocturnal. That's what 6am and 3.30am bedtimes will do to you! Oops

We played at our favourite venue last night at the Vintage in Wellington. It was pretty busy when we were setting up but by the time we started playing, the pub was rammed with people pogoing their little socks off.

We did a very different setlist in that it was a bit upside down. You see, you work out a good order for songs which is great, but then people get used to that order. So I mixed it up a bit. I knew the good folks in Wellington wouldn't mind ;-)

I thought Steve was going to pass out with excitement when we did Seasons in the Sun! The whole pub was bobbing up and down and swaying from side to side with us during that one. Great to watch!

The end of the first set was getting pretty hot and sweaty with Babylons Burning and Nellie the Elephant (which featured great audience singing in the choruses).

I went outside at half time because it was so hot. Thankfully the aircon (just behind Katie) was switched on for the second half which helped a bit. There was some serious moshing going on by the end of the gig with mental jumping about and good natured shoving. Good to see people being picked up when they fell down.

We're in the garden next time for one of Dave's Bank Holiday Extravaganzas! It's ages away! How will we cope?
