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.

Sex Pistols Experience at The Hub

The REOFFENDERS returned to The Hub in Plymouth last night. We played there with Too Hot on the last night of our August tour and it was great to get back there. It's a nice sized stage, really good PA, brilliant sound guys.... what else could you want?

Well playing with The Sex Pistols Experience was a pretty damn fine addition! We'd been looking forward to this for a while, the SPE tour the world as the closest thing you're ever gonna get to seeing the Sex Pistols. They don't just look like the original Sex Pistols, they sound like them too!

We played a blistering 19 songs in an hour, mainly classics but with a bit of Toy Dolls and Elton John chucked in too. The audience went with the silliness and we had them chanting "Britney, Britney" before you knew it. They also enjoyed singing Goldblade's Psycho with us - it's a great moment when you get a new audience to join in with a song that they don't know!

We've been promised a DVD recording of the gig and should have that by next weekend so keep your eye on the website for that.

The SPE were brilliant. It's eerie how much Sid and Johnny look the real deal and how well they have their mannerisms. I particularly enjoyed Sid's banter with the audience although Johnny got a perfect one line put down in which got huge applause.

We'll be keeping in touch with the SPE boys and hopefully support them again next time they're in the South West.
