Brutal Gig

Uberrock have a story of mine about a brutal gig I did with Berzerker in Nottingham up on their site under the ‘Hells Gigs’ section. Anyone who wants the full story behind the gig on the Berzerker DVD where I punch that guy in the face can get it here:

* update 5/6/12: My good friend Mr.P found the youtube clip of the punch for your delectation at :  http://youtu.be/OtSafjE9IeQ?t=4m20s

Additionally, I found a brief electronic diary note from that show. We were travelling with a friend called Nails who’s a purveyor of snuff and porn (or at least was) and we wanted to incorporate projections and visuals into the show so we could have a truly classy multimedia event. We waded through a bunch of horrifyingly nasty footage while travelling on the bus and selected the highlights. Thus the Nottingham show was preceded with me  handing the sound desk a remote control and instructing them to commence the video “at the part where the pig gets blowtorched”.

Only problem was this place had no lift and the stage was at the top of a staircase so we had to carry everything up which took the wind out of us a bit. Watched Co-Exist open up the night’s proceedings, and wondered how on earth no-one has signed them yet. They had a guy filling in for lead vocals tonight because the usual vocalist was in hospital, punctured lung I think. The start of the gig wasn’t too flash for me – the bass cut out halfway through the opening track (‘Principles’ I think). When the song finished I had to hold the bass up in the air and punch the back of it a few times, then it came good for the rest of the gig. The pick-up’s battery was a bit loose or something. Otherwise, a good gig. Usual crazy Glaswegian crowd. […]
