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 8/19 - Butlins, Minehead

Thats it. The clothes are all clean and we're packed ready to load up tomorrow. Just one thing to do. Oh, I remember a show at Butlins!

Back up the M5/A39 and here we go again. And once again were on a bill with Same Difference. Hoover goes for a pee backstage only to return to the dressing room to find Katie all "a fluster". Yes, she's just met Same Difference in the corridor. "what did you say to them?" "Er, nothing. A was a bit starstruck".

As we like to get there early, we always have time to check out whats happening, and as ever thats quite a lot at Butlins. Here at Reds the Redcoats show the punters their paces doing some of their favourite songs. And then its Girls Alouder. A great warm-up for our punk show!

Eleven o'clock swings round and out we go to entertain. Its another fun show with some pretty happy families at the end. In fact we seem to have a whole family up and dancing at the end to Nellie the Elephant.

Decided to give them Livin La Vida Loca, and this led to the comment of the night from one of the audience... "compared to you Ricky Martin sounds like a Teletubby".. ahem!

This time round the sound/stage crew at Reds are worth a special mention. The onstage sound is always great, and we were particularly pleased this time with how well we could hear what we were doing. Nice one guys. One of the great joys of playing Butlins is performing with their state-of-the-art systems. Bully says they're really good, and he should know, cos he's toured with Muse.
