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.

Where Did Everyone Come From?

We arrived in Taunton on Saturday a little tired from the night before and lacking in energy. As we finished setting up, there were 7 people in the Pen and Quill. Oh dear! This could be hard work!

20 minutes later, we reappeared after getting changed to find a pub full of people waiting for us to start. Now that's more like it! Energy levels were restored by the reaction of the audience and we jumped around despite us dripping with sweat in a very hot room.

I'd deliberately done quite a different set as we've been to the P&Q before and I wanted to keep things fresh. In hindsight, it was quite a heavy set with things like Walk Like an Egyptian and 99 Red Balloons missed out. But it worked a treat. The guys that have seen us every time loved it cos they didn't know what to expect next and the people who were knew to us "got it" and enjoyed all the songs, even the ones they didn't know.

It's a shame there's so many tables in the P&Q. You end up with no-one wanting to be the first to dance which results in lots of rigorous head banging from a seated position.

Next time... we'll play a song that you HAVE to dance to early on! Ha! That'll get you ;-)
