  • Crackhead
  • Crap Day
  • The Score

18th October 2003 - RockSoc Pandemonium Gig Night dB's at Imperial College Union

Played before Mesch, evenflowerskill and Sone This was a key gig for us, the first one that was non Jazz and Rock related and one where we supported upcoming bands from over the country.

Also by this stage we had written two more songs over the creative summer and we were keen to perform our originals. Our publicity was very strong and so was RockSocs publicity of the event with us priting our own flyers for the first ever time and RockSoc had their own flyers too. The gig was also supported by a lot of our supporters being on a Saturday evening.

The Set was

  • Sweet Emotion - An Aerosmith cover
  • The Score
  • Californication - Our ever popular Chilli Peppers cover
  • Crap Day
  • Culture of Docility

Once again a million thanks for all our supporters who turned up to see us play, it was great to have you all there. We had a brill time too playing so many of our new songs for the first time, pity we had such a short set and could't entertain you for longer. Also the minidisc recorder packed up (it only got the first half of the first song) but we'll sort that all this out with our next gig, so watch this space! 1
