The Comedy Gig – 9 July 2013

There were a whole load of really cool things going on at this gig. We launched a brand new song “Euphoria” , we gave a video interview for a blog called The Ordinary Dork and we had some photos taken of us live.

  2. Just Walk Away
  3. Hypnotised
  4. Crap Day
  5. Euphoria
  6. Monument to All Your Sins

Thanks to Mark from Wheel Tappers Music for putting the night on, Tom for filming us and of course all of you who were there who made the night happen and were there to support us there. You rock!

The Comedy Gig – 20 April 2013

Drummer Greg’s father lives in Indonesia and has never seen Greg play live before. On this weekend he was going to be in London and Greg wondered if we should do a gig on this date. And so we decided that indeed this is when we were going to play live!

Lady luck was on our side this time, a lot. We got an extra special and long soundcheck during which we were able to hone our stage sound and technique to perfection. There were only 3 bands playing on the night, which meant we got to play for an hour. Yes, a whole hour! During which we were able to play our longest set since the Luna Lounge Gig. The set played on the night was

  1. Hypnotised
  2. Just Walk Away
  3. Out of Power
  4. Monument to All Your Sins
  5. Crap Day
  6. The Moment
  7. Crazy
  8. Deep Blue Sea
  9. Pointless
  10. The Score

The Comedy Gig – 7th February 2012

As we were waiting in that basement at The Comedy pub nervously, band after band had sound checked..we were now the last one to sound check with less than 5 minutes to go before doors opened for the night. Drummer Greg was the last one to arrive and as he’d forgotten to bring casual clothes he was actually out shopping for new casual wear and hence the delay. That’s a first for us but a pretty cool story though!

But none of that was to matter. We really were in true form and total fire for this gig. This was our most energetic performance since our regular return to gigging from September 2011 onwards. Only now have we re-established an energetic, care free, 100% fun fun fun vibe to our live shows.

As for the set list we actually had no idea of what songs we were going to pick for this gig. In the end we settled for a slightly safe option of a repeat of our last gig’s set. Reason being that the other two new songs have been modified since they were launched and we would have probably made a right meal of those if we played them 😉

So the set list played on the night was:

  1. Hypnotised
  2. Out of Power
  3. Just Walk Away
  4. Crap Day
  5. The Moment
  6. Pointless
  7. The Score

The only difference from the last gig’s set being that this time we ended with The Score, which is back to it’s crowing glory as the set ender.

Thanks to all those who were there, and there were quite a few of you! We made new fans and it was great to meet the oldskool ones. We are grateful to everyone who turned up and can’t thank you enough for your support. Rock ‘n roll!
