March 31st The Ringside

Our first gig! We were on second and performed a set of mostly covers. As far as we are concerned the gig was reasonably good - obviously it wasn't perfect, due to the nerves but it wasn't too bad.

Set list:

Asche Zu Asche (With Ryan Pullen as a guest guitarist),  Pretty Vacant,  Squealer,  Mikey's Dad, and  Louie Louie


Tom and James, both in DANJIRA t-shirts.

Dannie, and we think this is probably Dannie again.

A blurry James and Tom sweating like some kind of rodent.

Comments:   I think that the gig went quite well, and I know that I loved every minute of it.

Louie Louie I have chosen 'cos by then nerves had completely gone and I enjoyed playing it most.

Although 'Mikey's Dad' didn't go too well, I chose Squealer because I f*cked up: I got myself out of time then just lost it. I blame nerves... but its no excuse : )

The 'Numbers' from me are fairly optimistic, but I do think they are quite fair... We will soon see as we get more reviews.

Comments:   I couldn't have enjoyed performing more, after all gigging is the purpose of a band. I think the gig was good for a first, the crowd seemed to like us anyway.

Louie Louie because the crowd seemed to like it most, It was my favourite song of the night and of course I had the harmonica solo.

I didn't like Mikeys Dad much on the night, it was written in a short space of time and

Comments:   The gig was great fun and I think it was a good first. I can't wait till our next. Thanks to all the people who went.

Louie Louie was probably best, but I also enjoyed Squealer.

I don't have a 'worst'. They were all ok.

Comments:   i have to say it was very very good for a band that havnt even
been playing the instruments long at all and if it was ur first gig it
makes it even better but there area few things that u need to clear up a
little. firstly the worst thing about it and i dont mean this in a
agresive thing at all because it was good but the thing that stuck out as
being not so good was your drummer i think you would improve a considerable
amount from a drummer that can play better. but the rest was good and will
get better with practise so just keep practisin and i loved the t-shirts! so
im sorry if i caused offence but it is only what i think with some
constructive critisism i hope its constructive any way.
