Now is the moment I get down on my cyber knees and apologise. Yesterday I posted a review of Miss Conduct at Bodega on Saturday night, and, shame of shame, got the band wrong. The line up was different from what I had heard, so I thought the second band was Miss Conduct, when it was actually Hellserpoppin. Everything I said about Miss Conduct I should have said about Hellserpoppin. How could I get something wrong like the band name? A few factors come into play. As you will see in the review posted below (updated to the correct band) words were inaudible. I don’t recall the introduction, and don’t know how I managed to get the band wrong. I guess I didn’t want to stick around to talk to them which would obviously have clarified the information!
Let me take this opportunity to apologise in advance to all musicians I offend. Some bands are great, some just average and some truly awful. Thankfully, there are few truly awful bands, and most can improve, so even if some jumped up music reviewer like myself says they don’t like it, don’t take it too much to heart. As a musician myself, I understand that some gigs are better than others, it takes years of gigging to achieve consistency.
The reason I’ve set this up as a blog rather than a website or as part of a print publication is for the comments function. If you have an opinion on anything I’ve said, or you were at a certain gig and want to add your bit – please do! It makes for a well rounded review if more than one person gives their opinion.
