I'm not gonna mince my words about this place!
Did not enjoy this gig at all!
This place is "CHAV" Heaven!
[I hate to say this because there were actually some decent folk about in there!]
but the majority of them were lowest form of human exsistance I have encountered at anywhere other than a Football match!
They were tossing and swinging chairs about with no regard for anyones safety
They for some matcho reason see fit to strip down to just there trousers?
They bounded about the stage with absolutely no regard for our gear?
one of them grabbed the mic to join in the singing? bless him!
another one got so excited during the solo to "you shook me all night long" that he bounced up on the stage to [I think] give me a hug! and nocked the guitar clean out of my hands [in the middle of the solo!!!]
another one decided to do a back flip off the Stage, knocking one of the monitors that went rolling off the stage and he landed with a crack on his back on the edge of the stage!
During one song I turned around to find one of them trying to grab my PRS 513 to presumable use as an air guitar?
Our drummer had to let one of them have bang crash whollop on his drums to in an effort to keep the peace?
They were so over excitable that at one point we decided to do "Kayliegh" to calm things down [we usually save that one for the girlie pubs] it worked! for about 5 mins! then as soon as we played anything with a bit of gusto,they were off again like a pack of looneys on day release from the local nutty farm!
The thing that annoys me most about all this is that the landlord stood there letting it all happen?
We had near on 20k's worth of gear on that stage and he did sod all to stop them raising havoc and running a muck all over the place with chairs ,tables and anything else they could get there hands on?
Packing up was dodgy as well!
had to keep one of us with the gear all the time and there were still a couple of them dancing round us on the stage while we were trying to pack up?
Needless to say I'm not looking to rebook at this place untill the present landlord is replaced!
Which probably wont be long ? the looneys will probably burn it down soon?
"So who's on here next week"
whoever you are I wish you all the luck in the world that the local Chav's are locked in a cell some where while your playing?
