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 3/19 - Butlins, Minehead

Another pleasurable night on the stage at Reds...

Before we got to play, Me 'n' Tefal got to sneak upstairs to "Centre Stage" to catch the end of the show from "Same Difference" - yep the guys from X-Factor were starring at Butlins tonight! Both Tefal and I loved it. It was great to see the kids faces down the front looking up at people they'd only before seen on their TVs. It really brought home the magic of Butlins. It was a great show and if it wasn't for us needing to play downstairs, then I think young Katie would have queued up with the hundreds of others to get a photo with her heroes.

Back downstairs the MC gave us big build up and then we're off. The audience in Reds loved the show and we had a great time doing Nellie the Elephant for an encore. Ideal!

Highlight for tonight was the lady in the wheelchair rocking her socks off. Go girl go!

Also this was the first time Susie Moo, our little bovine drum tech came out to assist. And cool she looked on the drumkit, helping keep Katie in time and everything..

Lets have a look at the ol' scoreboard then...

Miles on the van today = 110
Total miles in August = 274
T-shirts sold in August = 2

Off to Cornwall in the morning... thinking I might get me head shaved or something before we go... more of that later...

And its now 3:40 am and Morph and Indy have finished playing Mario Olympics and now pronounce themselves "knackered". Time fer bed..
