I have played in this Oxon Based line up for at least a Google years ( or thereabouts )…. The gig list has been added to over the years… I mean, I never expected to be shouting "Your sex is on fire" not unless it was at a Thrush Medication Seminar, or Firefighting Demonstration. Hadn't really played with the band for some years, although I had been in bands here in France.. The Pots ( geddit ) and a 3 piece called the Crackheads… where after the 3rd gig drummer Michel asked " Wonnie? what is Qwack'ead?" I said it was the result of a motorbike accident, and he seemed happy with that.
I have always said that your band name should reflect the sign of the times.. Ronnie and the Rent boys seemed memorable back in the 90s. When we chose the name the drummer Salim ( half Siamese half Welsh Roofer ) said " I don wannabe no bloody rent boy."… I was Ronnie BTW.
So, Shudbe Band we feel is an apt description.. we are very,very LOUD, but do you know, as we played thru to the early hours, at Neil the drummer's birthday bash, the PO-lice did NOT come a-knocking, and the neighbours were most complimentary in the morning. Gigging in the UK… nowt better.
The party was brilliant, everyone dancing..and not one song about a Little mouse that plays an accordion.
Any Gigsters, Partymakers out there who think that neighbours in the UK are largely more tolerant?
Look forward to hearing from you
