Re: How could it feel LIPS, Slugguit or Catdeli?
- Well, I wish I could say that my band was popular enough to be egged
off of the Ozzfest stage, but I can't! haha
We were actually the victims of some foul play a few years ago when
we were playing at a local club. This place was one of the few venues
for original music remaining in my small farm town. It's a very
straight, conservative area we live in. But we got a gig there one
weekend and were quite pleased. We hired a big P.A. and soundmen
etc., trucked all the gear inside and set up. We had a good show
planned, as well as just playing our songs. There was a diferent
costume for each bandmember. I was a demented jester, the singer was
a Mexican wrestling mask wearing nun and we had Satan and a bleeding,
crown of thorns wearing Christ lead guitarist. Part of the show was
hanging a rubber blow-up sex doll from the rafters and cutting it up
(with fake guts and entrails) during one song. The "Christ" would be
swallowing mass quantities of "pills" and "puking" at times onstage.
There was a fake squirting dildo wielded by Satan for the encore. We
brought in a comedy team to do some tasteless ethnic humor before us.
Suddenly, the management had seen enough! We were told to stop
playing immediately and pack up the gear. We were then paid extra NOT
to play our third set. The fans were mad because some had come there
just to see us play. The FEMALE manager said that the crowd would
rather hear the jukebox, but this was just not true. Well, there was
no changing their minds about this and rather than get into a rumble,
we ended up leaving. Funny thing is, a few months later we wrangled
an opening slot in there and were AGAIN cut off after only 3 songs by
the same FEMALE manager. If I had to do it all over again, I think we
would have NOT stopped and continued to play until the power was cut.
At least we were not egged but we were some pretty big guys in the
band, one of which is now a Pro Wrestler, so I think they knew better
than to try anything like that.
