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.

August Gig 10/19 - The Sand Bar, Praa Sands

The Watermill Inn is in the Good Beer Guide and does home cooked food. Just the job for hungry musicians except... it doesn't mention that the beer is only average, the welcome is surly, and the food is microwaved stuff, in miniscule portions, sold at premium prices! Needless to say, Paul finishes his meal with the words "the starter was OK"...

Anyway, its time for Paul to save the day by suggesting Pitch and Putt. Oh-my-god, the REOFFENDERS are going to play bloody golf! Penwith Pitch and Putt is just down the road in Hayle, and, unlike our lunch is excellent value and very enjoyable.

The REOFFENDERS then proceed to hack and slash their way around the 18 holes. Often the divuts fly further than the balls, but there's a round of applause every time someone manages a "proper golf shot".

Paul comes out winner even though he manages to hit nearly every tree on the course. But in the end, his golfing pedigree shines through. Paul celebrates with not one, but two of Philps Famous Pasties.

On the night we speed over to Praa Sands for another new venue for the tour. The Sand Bar have been on Heather's hit-list for every tour, but we've never managed to have free dates. This time we're there and ready to go.

The pub is most definately in one of the greatest positions of any pub, with picture windows looking across the Praa Sands and out to sea. Of course, by now, the weather's turned shite, so there's no hope of strolling along the beach or anything.

We're very happy to see that the Sand Bar have been advertising us well, with posters and flyers about in abundance and more of their own promo too. There's a great welcome from the pub, which includes free drinks and the nicest pint of Proper Job we've tasted in a long time.

By the end of the night there's only one or two people left sat down and there's a mosh pit of sweaty, happy locals giving it some. Special thanks goes to Taf Thomas, who helped get them up and dancing right from the off.
