      Snotnosed aka Pisshole Surfers (a tribute to The
      Hanatarashi/Hanatarash)
      Live Shit Action 1 @ The Chillingham Arms, Heaton,
      Newcastle.

      Due to electronic problems (or excesses) Snotnosed
      faced an early hitch with their electronic equipment.
      As a result, they were forced to rely on "acoustic"
      instruments, such as Glass, sheets of metal, a large
      metal bin, crockery, Junk and a large slegehammer! (In
      hindsight the lack of electronics was probably a
      blessing, as it forced them to work twice as hard at
      causing as much damage to the venue, themselves and
      everyone else in it).

      Unphased by the lack of electronics, after a few
      largely unintelligable words were shouted (It sounded
      like it could have been "fuck all noise musicians, we
      are Disco Pop!", or something like that) the fun and
      games
      began. Within minutes the guitars was smashed in half,
      and glass and metal was flying everywhere, creating a
      carpet of smashed junk in the small upstairs room, all
      conducted to the soundtrack of amplified destruction
      and ear piercing feedback.

      Throughout the performance one member (sporting a mask
      of some kind, which looked like something a diver in
      an old sci fi might wear) spent most of the show in
      the background making a racket with whatever junk he
      could lay his hands on to smash, whilst the other
      perched himself in the centre of the small room,
      causing as much chaos and damage as possible with the
      sledgehammer (the venues lighting, and floor/roof of
      the main room seemed to be firm favourites).

      It's hard to describe how insane the whole thing
      looked at this point, and it can only partly be
      illustrated by the fact that one member had his foot
      broken in three places by a flying turntable threw by
      the other
      member........... and failed to realise.

      In what seemed like a few minutes later the
      destruction and madness drew to a close, with
      Snotnosed taking a bow. Seconds later, following the
      shout of encore! They were at it again, amps were
      randomley hurled around, the sledgehammer was put to
      further good use, and to top it all off nicely, they
      finished up by having one member dive head first into
      a bin full on junk, and the pouring it over his head.
      Another bow and it was all over.

      The lights came on to reveal a sea of glass and metal
      junk, a whole load of smashed equiptment, a less than
      happy looking club owner, a broken foot,
      puzzled/shocked faces, and quite a few ringing ears.

      This was everything you you could ask for from a
      tribute to The Hanatarashi. No stupid arty attitude,
      just great fun, senseless destruction and absolute
      madness!
