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.

Slight Change to Remaining Dates

It is tradition in The REOFFENDERS that all departing members have their last gig at The Vintage in Wellington. So we have moved our November 27th gig to December 18th. The Cadence will play the Kings Arms instead of us.

Big big thanks to Random Shuffle who bent over backwards to move their gig and let us do our swan song in Wellington. Cheers guys

Paul Indesit

It is with sadness that we tell you that Paul Indesit is leaving The REOFFENDERS. As you may know, he plays in another band, Mad Hatter 2.0 which is going from strength to strength. They’re playing all over the country and with tours on the horizon in Europe and the US, he needs to find some time to sleep!

Since he joined us in 2003, we’ve had quite a ride. We’ve played hundreds of gigs in small pubs of 50 people to 1500 people at Butlins, hotel balconies, air hangars and barns. We’ve had the best of times together! Since 2003, The REOFFENDERS have had 5 bassists and 6 drummers… but only one guitarist. He’s irreplacable in our hearts and bloody difficult to replace musically – those meaty chugs and sweet harmonics are signature sounds that we love.

For that reason, The REOFFENDERS will have a break from January 2011. We want to find the right person and right sound for the band. We also think it’d be a bit unfair for someone to jump into his shoes right now because frankly, they just feel too big to fill at the moment. We'll be talking to all the venues that we currently have gigs booked with as quickly as we can get round them.

So for the moment, the five remaining gigs in 2010 are all that we can commit to. We hope to see some lots of familiar faces at those gigs to help us see Paul off in style.

Thanks and see you soon

Heather, John, Rob and Paul (Madge)
