So,our band,Loafer has a first gig!2,in fact!
Darryl(the drummer)'s wife is an artist,and wants us to play at her exhibition opening,then later we are supporting Squirm(one of Darryl's old bands)in Lyttleton!
We are all rather excited,as none of us have played live for a looooong time.
That's me in the nun outfit.This band is partly where the name Helga von Trollop comes from.We had a blast,playing dirty,fun original rock & roll,very AC/DC meets Motley Crue in a vat of depravity and eyelashe glue.The lyrics were FILTHY!!!We all had crazy stage names.You know who I was.......G was G-Man,Darryl was Sleazy D,the lead guitarist,Mark,was Marky Harlot,and the bassist,Vaughn,was Dr Love Trousers.
We just played around town for a couple of years until the lead guitarist had a spazz.We got another guitarist,Toby,who was brillant,but it just never really jelled.Toby is now drumming for G's other band,Snuffbox.Toby's Donkey name was Sven Hosenschlanger.
I still like to call him that.
Here's G,looking fine in the codpiece I made him,and a black wig.Not sure whose panties are hanging on the end of his guitar!this gig was at the Media Club,which sadly no longer functions.This room was an old ballroom,and it was all delightfully decrepit and had great atmosphere.
So, Loafer has a 9 song set,hopefully it will go well,and hopefully we get a decent audience!!!
*whoops,I lied.Snuffbox has had 1 gig,ages ago,but the drummer left,and they have been getting Toby trained!Gagging for them to play,they ROCK!
May the 4th be with you!
**I have been corrected by G;Snuffbox have in fact had at least 3 gigs.My apologies,G,I was probably too drunk to remember!x
