We have just acquired a gig at a party in a car repair garage two blocks from my house. Tomorrow! How local is that?
Well, nobody got arrested last night, and our comical home-made PA held up too. We ran everything (DAT machine; PA amp; Mixing desk; Bass Amp; 2 Guitar amps; Curtis' Amp; Curtis' Air-FX; Curtis' Delay; Pat's Delay; Pat's tube-in-a-box) off one power socket (now you couldn't do that in America, now could you?) Went down very well, all things considered. (Curtis on ecstasy? Perish the very thought...) We played pretty early (about 9:15 to 10:00) so as to avoid too much neighourhood grief, which did mean that a few of the hardcore only bowled up as we were dismantling our kit. Sorry about that...
Among the party-goers was Andy Skank, who is single-handedly turning the Labour Club into quite a happening place. As part of his ongoing campaign to bring Groove to the Government, he offered us a couple of gigs there.
