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 19/19 - The Longbrooke, Exeter

And so we end our marathon month back home in Exeter, with lots of very familiar faces in the audience. It was baking hot inside and we're very grateful to everyone for coming into a hot pub rather than sitting out in a beer garden all night.

Aiden went completely nuts when we played Antipope knocking beer all over. He was most apologetic to the owner of the beer but at the same time couldn't stop dancing. Very funny. Looks like we're always gonna have to do that song when he's about ;-) Son managed to boogie a bit despite her back injuries - it'll be good to see you 100% fit again soon, girl!

So that's our little adventure over. We didn't really intend to play quite as much this month as we did but sometimes its hard to turn things down. There is always the challenge of "that sounds a bit silly, I wonder if we can do it!" - I think its my lemming approach to things ;-) My vocals survived quite well through the month but it give me huge respect for professional musicians who tour with very few days off. Its fun but its also bloody hard work!

We're gonna have a week off now and a much calmer schedule in September. There's holidays to have and beer festivals to go to...
