Gig Review: The Bull: I think that the
description might be "tight but memorable" ...a tag that several Band Members
might have used on several occasions over the years... ...but no, this was no
female conquest... this was the Bull at Benenden!!
It was great to be invited over by Mark (ex-landlord of the Cricketers in Hawkhurst) to celebrate Steve Bunch's fortieth (Christ he looked older than that!)... Come on Guys you must remember those Gigs back in the nineties... but then again if they were good gigs you might not!
However back to the Bull... On arrival, there were a few "No way Del! ...have you seen it in there?" but the Shots tend to rise to a challenge ...anyway once Brian had erected his Mini-Platform out of logs to balance his drum kit on in the Inglenook, and Neil and Paul had positioned themselves each with their heads up the chimney either side. Sound-man Rich (fresh in from Borneo that day... some might say "looked like it") had great enjoyment threading the Multicore and power leads through the short-skirted local "fluff" (just love that), that appeared to be somehow attached to the bar (the Joys of setting up in an already crowded bar eh).
With the Sound-desk in another bar, a minimal sound-check was achieved. Then in through the door walked Goon, Batey, Bobby, Tash, Deano and even Del's Mum & Dad etc! Good effort guys! Jon then quite amusingly directed Deano through the crowded Restaurant for a piss... Dean emerged red-faced to thank Jon for his trouble!
If the crowd had not witnessed STB before, they were about to. Despite the restricted conditions, the Shots managed to perform like only they can, with Drummer Watesy (having also just flown in from Italy earlier that evening) driving the Band through a pulsating set and still having enough energy to join Landlord Mark, in an end of evening Irish Jig, much to the amazement of the remaining punters.
Look out Michael Flatley, the Shots are in Town!!
