According to a lot of people who were watching us play we did really good. This was basically our first proper live gig, as part of Farnborough College Of Technology’s Battle Of The Bands.
From my point of view we played pretty well, although the majority of it is now a blur. I could hardly hear Craig, even though he was right next to me…but Steve and Graeme were easy to hear. I could barley hear myself.
Good news: No-one broke a string…awesome. My one gripe is that I was told not to take the Microphone of the Mic stand which I’m pretty sure made us lose marks for the stage presence section. There were wires fucking everywhere too.
Graeme was on fire on the old drums, possibly his best performance of the songs yet. Craig remembered how Ignorance went, ha-ha, which was good too. Steve, as per usual, was the one with probably the best idea of how the songs went, hehe.
I didn’t forget any lyrics which was good and got told by a few people that I did a good job on the microphone. Even Michael Barton gave us praise, which really says something.
Overall, I was surprised with how we did seeing as hot it was our first gig, but I believe we can improve in some areas (banter is still lacking, more moving around)
