Last tuesday's gig
went like a treat, as they usually do at the Klinker!
The songs played were: Beatles cover version of the Yellow Submarine(sounded a bit like Muse "Sunburn" song according to the critics but then we are Green Drummers so it s quite likely it ended up sounding like something slightly different.)
"Sweet Bastard", on Casio PT30; new song called "Joie", other new song called "Jargon de la France " ("French Slang" ); new song called "Friendly Soul" or 'how to deter friends from your house' , newish song "Tranny and the Tramp" , Liberated Woman and Ex Mad Eel song called "Baba the Bearz goes to Wonderland" as a second Encore as the crowd exploded with enthousiasm for more.
Stewart Keith joined us straight away, playing the Wooden Spoon and Pan, and half way through the song, we invited the rest of Mad Eel to join in and make more noise. It ended up very noisy indeed, and most wooden spoons broke due to the love and power Stewart used on them.
We did do an interlude and a One Minute Slience for Brenda who was unfortunately absent and enjoying herself doing training for her new job. We missed her, but the show had to go on...
Due to lack of time we were unable to play very popular "Not in Love" song.The set was already 45 minutes , more than most great bands get!
Green Drummers forgot to introduce new band member Steam Pot On Cauliflower and also forgot to wear the hat designed to go with this wonderful outfit, which made Origane-fashion, the Creator, very pissed off. Ah well, this is Seaweed, Nettles and Pop Music for F£££ sake??! Not a **** fashion show! Ooops she is coming, sshuushh, I never said anything.
Lalala so, Origane, what did you think of our newly trained voice by Psycho
Jeremy from Mab? "
"- It was rather peculiarly shit bare headed, so you better go off and practice some more! And don't you bloody forget your hat next time. Or you can go and find yourself another fashion designer for YOUR costumes!"
"- You are a rather hard heatless bitch but we appreciate your comments and will definitely punish Korg Triton for its voice squeekyness.
What project have you got in your pipeline? "
"- Too many to mentions, including a dress for Maleficents lead Singer, a dress for Mab's member Marina, promised since April last year and a couple of period dresses for next summer. And a pink corset for Spit Like This Bass player, a snake skin trousers for their drummers, and a few more bits. But definitely nothing for you."
"- Well that doesn't sound very much at all, what a life of leisure you lead! We were actually thinking of doing another gig...Any luck for one of your beautiful hats? "
" Grunt... "
"Thank you very much for your time."
The Green Drummers gig went wonderfully even
though Green Drummers themselves were not so up to gigging that night.
The energy was strong and the new songs very entertaining. Mad Eel joined during the song "Baba the BEarz goes to Wonderland" and it all ended in the toilets with Stewart keith. Wonderful support from greatly rated fans like Voltane and Matteo.Brenda was missing but we were with her in spirit!
