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.

Talk About Last Minute!

On Friday, I was phoning a few venues trying to find more gigs for this year and along the way, I phoned the Manor Hotel in Cullompton. "How about tonight?" was the answer I got! Gulp, erm, give me half an hour to check what we're up to tonight.

And so half an hour later, we confirmed that we were available. This was at about 5pm! Hoover and I had to work until 8pm and then it was straight in the van and onto the M5.

I rather liked the space that we had there... a stage at the far end of a long bar with great access for loading equipment. It seemed a quiet night in Cullompton generally (bloody Wimbledon!) but a few people who'd come in for the band who'd cancelled stayed to see what we were about and thoroughly enjoyed it. In the second half, the pub filled up quite a bit and we had a fair few dancers.

Landlord happy, punters happy and hopefully a new venue! Hurrah! Not bad for a fluke phone call :-D
