Punk'd Come to Town

There has been much excitement in The REOFFENDERS ranks about the visit of Punk'd, our myspace buddies from Stourbridge.

On Friday afternoon, they arrived at Chez Morphenhoov for a quick bite to eat before jumping in Iggy to head off for sunny Brixham. Oooh, we do love the Bolton.

It always amazes me how much stuff we take to gigs. Add to that all the stuff belonging to another band and... well... that's A LOT of stuff! It seemed to take ages getting setup. This wasn't helped by us using an unfamiliar PA which we were trying out with a view to buying. Our mate Radar of BMAD fame helped us out on the sound so we had an extra pair of hands on board.

Punk'dPunk'd stormed through a great one hour set which included dropouts into Adam and the Ants and Pulp Fiction's Dick Dale. Our other favourite was Too Drunk to Fuck! (You can hear it on their myspace... blatant plug). Awesome guys, awesome! Was Stevie singing from the heart? ;-) If you've looked at Punk'ds myspace/website at all, you'll notice that Stevie Boy has a fixation on blowjobs. Tracy did her best to accommodate mid song although this seemed to make the words fall out of his head! Tee hee! Add into the mix a brummie trying to do his best Devon accent which sounded more Pirates of the Caribbean. It was most entertaining! I had forgotten to mention to them beforehand though that support bands aren't meant to be so damn good - they were a tough act to follow!

Then it was our turn! It was Smeg's first gig and he did a great job despite a few nerves beforehand. We'd changed our set to be abit more silly because we knew Punk'd would do lots of classics. One thing was for sure.... they didn't have Girls Aloud in their set!

Punk'dWe played for an hour and a half before being joined on stage by Punk'd for Teenage Kicks, and then landlord Ian brought us back for request from him.... Jilted John. Unrehearsed songs live! Always an interesting experience.

We got home at about 2am and I think the Punk'd boys stayed up till about 4am, although they're not big drinkers. With the exception of Slob! He had a good go at making up for his bandmates in the beer department and stayed up with us till... well, he just stayed up. I crashed at about 7am although I'm slightly distressed that I went to bed before Hoover (the lightweight). It's unprecidented!

Thanks soooooooooo much to Punk'd for coming down. We had a great night and it was brilliant to finally meet you! You're our heroes!
