Worst band i ever saw.

Recommended Posts

Im trying to think of a word that describes a band i saw earlier tonight .

Appauling , Disgraceful, horrendous, disaster , embarassing ?? , i suppose i could use them all because they were so bad , it was bordering on humiliation.

They were called ''The journey men '' . Ah , i suppose the name alone should have told be , ''Dont bother ''

They started with ''Brass in Pocket '' , WHAT ?? i thought , considering the lead singer was a middle aged guy with a beard .

Then they made an attempt at ''Sweet Child of mine '' which i have to say was criminal . Have you ever seen those failed wannabee lead singers , who probably has been in about 70 different bands in their carreer and have egos bigger than their voice ?? That was this guy . What followed was so embarassing i cringed into my drink . He started cracking jokes about other members of the band , you know those jokes that refeer to his sexuality that nobody finds funny except the drunk in the corner.

They continued .....,''The boys are back in Town '' , oh how did i not see that one coming , stupid me . If Lynott was alive today he'd have a decent excuse to overdose. It was a shambles . He was putting his own words to the song , here it is ....'' Wont be long till summer comes , now that the Journey Men are here again '' WHAT ???? p*** OFF .

Next up was '' Brown Eyed Girl '' every now and then he'd go ''Wow lets hear ya '' while taking a few seconds to take a gulp out of his pint .

Now the big one , and i wanted to murder them at this stage , i even would have paid a hitman to carry out the job '' Shook me all night long ''

followed by 'Highway to hell '' appropiate song considering hes on the way there after what he did to AC/DC.

U2 followed '' With or without you '' where he sang out of tune ,

Then i noticed he was wearing aed Zeppelin T-Shirt and i went , ''Please god dont let them do Led Zeppelin , i promose to donate 50 quid to the poor box on Monday if you dont let this happen . Thankfully the good lord is a Chelsea fan.

Finally , after a few more cheesy unfunny jokes , god knows how many pints he decided to perform ''Message in a bottle '' ''I'll send an SOS to the world '' in a typical cabaret voice .

Before they had the chance to destroy any more quality tunes , one lyric sprang to mind ''I was happy in the haze of a drunken hour , but heaven knows im miserable now ''

TAXI .

Ofcourse you can complain if the band sucked. You don't expect the band to be bad when you go see them, so if you've paid to see them and they're absolutely horrible, it's the only sensible thing to do. That way you can save other people from doing the mistake of wasting time and money to see the crappy band.

First of all Phillip, i hadnt planned even going out last night . It was a spur of the moment thing . Local bar usually does entertainment , comedians , dj's etc etc so we thought we'd check it out as we never been there before on a Sat night. Im entitled to complain condsidering the pub advertise TOP CLASS quality entertainment every Saturday night .

Club Happy, you should have read the disclaimer at the bottom.

Top class entertainment will only be had after the downing of 10 pints. We will not be held responsible for those who do not drink enough and complain about the entertainment

I used to be a manager of a bar, with this other bloke. well he was talkied into a band performing for us one night. They were listening to the jukebox, making good selections, and talking about how they could play all these themselves. They were called "the DT's" as in Dry Tremmors.

Anyway, I was away the night they plaid, but my mate felt sick that they were even given a presence on our stage.

At teh end of the night there were 3 people in the bar, a saturday, and when the lead singer said "ok we'll do one more" one person from within the bar shouted "YOU DON"T FARKING HAVE TO!"

My mate said the worst bit, the bit where he finally had to leave the bar, was when they tried to do "smells like teeen spirit"

I've read that Morrissey was a fan of Madness at the time and since Morrissey was working with the same producer as Madness, Suggs ended up doing some backing vocals for Morrissey's record. According to what I've read, Morrissey wanted to play at Madstock, but didn't make such a big impression on the Madness crowd. After the first night's bad reception he was afraid to come back for the second night. The irony of it all was that on the second night there were several thousand Morrissey fans there, but not a sight of Morrissey. The Morrissey fans were obviously not too pleased about that. icon_lol.gif

...that North London Earthquake

So it's not just an urban myth? icon_eek.gif

Nope! ONE STEP BEYOND!

Various google searches found these quotes:

The historical research required painstaking study of not-necessarily reliable material. Modern earthquake research is more methodical: a national network of 140 instruments - first launched in 1970 - picks up hundreds of ground movements each year, along with a great number of local extraneous signals, including sonic booms from aircraft, the detonation of hitherto undiscovered second world war bombs and even the stamping of a crowd during a Madness concert at Finsbury Park.
Then, when they reformed to play at Finsbury Park in North London in the early Nineties, they caused a minor earthquake. Then they were back with a full UK Arena Tour kicking off in Dublin in December 2003.

Happy days!

Happy days!

I wish I could've been there. I remember reading about the earthquake, but the tone of the article suggested that it was just a music journo playing with words and exxagerating a bit to make a point about how much people were there and how much they were enjoying it. Great to hear the crowd made a real impact! icon_wink.gif
