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 9/19 - Harlyn Inn, Harlyn Bay

The weather isn't getting any better. The rain pounds on the van as we scurry up the A30 one more time to Cornwall. At least we've got our friend Sara in Penzance reporting that the weather is clearing.. Hooray!!

We stick the tent up fast and shoot straight back up to Harlyn Bay, near Padstow, and the Harlyn Inn. The unusual haste is to ensure we've got a bit of time to meet my sister and brother-in-law and my nephew and niece.

It turns into a pretty nice evening and the kids stay playing on the beach as long as they can. As Craig says, todays been the best and worst weather of their holidays so far, and ours...

The show goes OK, but its a bit disheartening that the band aren't listed on their line-up at the pub entrance and all the posters and flyers we sent appear to have gone in the bin. As as result (maybe) there's fewer people at the pub than we've ever had in the previous two years we've played there. Nevermind. We play our best for everyone and my nephew Scott is reported as being "impressed".

Final word goes to Kevin Teethmarks who turned up unannounced and really, really made it a special day for me. There's times when someone you know does something that changes your life. In 1982 Kevin said to me, "lets form a band. You can sing so you be the singer. Lets do punk cos its easy!" The rest, as they say, is history.

Miles on the van today = 211
Total miles in August = 1002 !!
T-shirts sold in August = 6
