Well, it had to happen sooner or later but we've split up. Mind you, i imagine everyone already knows that as its well over a year since we did! It Was a good laugh to start with but you can only go so far. No regrets and thanks to everyone who came to our gigs!
The Nucklhedz kicked off the night with a good tight set with highpoints a kick-ass cover of "You spin me right round" & their own "Do the Hawking". Seen em twice now & I think they've got a lot of promise. Plus, they bought our CD's so they must be okay.
Next was us. Even going on so early and being reasonably sober, it was still pretty sloppy compared to the best we've played. Still it was fun & most people seemed not to notice all but the most glaring of fuck-up's ;-). I forgot to take my digital camera so piccies will have to wait till we can get photo's developed.
Sick On The Bus were simply amazing. Fast, tight as fuck punk-rock all the way, one of the best punk bands I've seen. Considering they'd been on the old tramp brew and were well gone, they played amazingly even though their other guitarist couldn't make it as he was sunning himself in Cyprus! I can only imagine what they'd be like with the full line-up.
Demented Are Go played a mental set in sauna-like conditions. Sick & twisted psychobilly is wot they do and they do it awesomely. I couldn't name any of their songs as I was well pissed by that point but they kicked ass & they had a brutal pit. I dont think I've ever seen so many flat-tops in one place before ;-)
So, for those that made it, cheers. For those that didn't you missed a blinding night.
Cheers to Sean at The Soundhouse for putting us on!.
There's been a bit of a line-up change - well addition. The nucklhedz have got the opening slot. They proudly claim to be the shittest band in Colchester but they we'rnt that bad when I saw them last year. They're all about 8 or thereabouts. :-)
We're not happy with them as we'll be going on a bit later which means a tad less drinking time. ;-)
Hopefully, I'll get my lazy arse into gear and put all the pics of our last gig on here at some point over the weekend.
Not the most polished SkinSuit performance ever but we had a right larf and I enjoyed myself totally as I believe did the hippy.
I'll be posting pics shortly.
Feral & us will probably be doing more gigs together in the future. So, bad news to the Feral fans who didn't like us ;-)
Another thing, Marc, Rob & myself survived Marcs Stag nite! A top nite was had by all.
