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 11/19 - The First & Last, Sennen

The weather really isn't getting any better. I wake up on Saturday morning felling like I've had pretty much no sleep at all. All night the wind and rain have been battering the tent.

Heather and I glumly mooch about, but Paul and Katie are made of sterner stuff and head off to Snives for a round of surfing. Katie's equipped with a wetsuit. Paul's got nowt but some swimming shorts and proceeds to alarm Katie with the deep colour of purple that he turns into... meanwhile Bully is checking out the local record fair.

The REOFFENDERS regroup for a big lunch/breakfast at the Cafe One in St Erth. There's a surfshop next door where Paul eyes up the wetsuits (the feeling having finally returned to his frozen fingers).

Me and Heather troop over to Penzance to catch up with our friend Sara, where we meet at the Green Bean Cafe, and Heather is treated the nicest cappacino i think she's ever had!

The First and Last is yet another first time ever gig for us and again it proves to be a lovely friendly place with friendly locals and visitors alike. Althought it stays open very late on a Saturday, they have neighbour problems and so have to finish the music spot on 11pm. Of course we don't know that till half time, so in the end we only play a 30min second set.

No matter though. Once again there's dancing, whooping and general appreciation from a truly "all ages" audience. Nice to see a couple of guys who've caught up with us before at Cornwall gigs. Is this the making of a Cornwall following?

Physically I'm rather pleased we only have to do half and hour for the second set. The crap nights sleep last night is really taking its toll on me and I'm pleased for the rest. Eleven gigs into the month and finally my voice is starting to give out too.

Hopefully though, we'll get to do the F&L again as its another great venue!

Miles on the van today = 53
Total miles in August = 1092
T-shirts sold in August = 6 - does nobody like them?
