Our last party at the Toilet Factory
in south London was two days before our eviction and probably one of the best. None of the fight starting knob heads that blighted previous parties turned up, nor did any of the kids that smashed our windows during the first party. Probably cos it was a school night & they were at home watching Skins.
We DJed early on & then duties were taken over by Med Damon
. On the stage Letters from London
& The Metros
played as did Ratty Rat Rat
, who gone done a blinder & had the crowd singing along and jumping up and down like a dreanged mob.
When we started playing live, at about 1am, I could see nothing but gurners in the front row. One girl was gurning so hard it was as if she was trying to get her bottom lip over the tip of her nose & at first I thought she was joking. After a few minutes it became apparent that she was not.
So we played, and it kicked off. People were contantly falling onto the stage & along with Joe regulary falling onto my kit, it was a bit difficult to tell what was going on. It was big fun anyway, and we did a cover of Crazy Horses
by The Osmonds
. Plus it was our first gig with our new member Tom, who done us proud.
We'll miss living there, but we're already on the hunt for a better place. Stay tuned.
(Video footage of our gig coming soon.)
