back to SHOW DIARIES

I should have known things weren't going to go well when Frobozz called at 5:30pm
to tell us that he couldn't make it because he wasn't feeling well.

Now, I've always believed that one should never miss a gig no matter how sick one is.
With the possible exceptions of bleeding from the ears, severe internal hemorrhaging,
or severed hands. And even with severed hands, you should still be able to MacGyver
up some kind of wrist-sized slide out of rubber bands and an old pop bottle and then
get up there and RAWK, dammit!

So we called in our friend and former bandmate Dylan to save the day. And he would have
if only our laptop, which contains all our samples, hadn't decided to take a shitfit
and go on some kind of silicone work-to-rule program and refuse to do it's thing.

And the backup laptop with all the backup samples and backup applicatons was with Frobozz.

Of course, if we'd had more than 4 hours notice that the backup gear wouldn't be at the show,
then we could have made alternate arrangements. But hey.

So... long story short: we did everything we could to save the laptop, including reinstalling
the application, swearing, and applying the theories of Percussive Maintenance. We also
attempted to transfer the files to Dylan's machine, but those song-length 24-bit files
can get a bit big and we ran out of time.

Happily Cliff, Steven, and the lads and lasses from both Defence Mechanism and URN were
very understanding about the whole situation.

So thanks to everyone who came out to see us and deepest apologies for the debacle that
it became

Huge thanks also go out to Dylan for cancelling plans at the last minute to try and help
us out. It's much appreciated, sir.
