Complacent musicians sacked mid gig.

This should happen more often.


We've all seen shows where the players just stand there and dial in their performance. This is how they should be dealt with.

Mmm, tomorrow afternoon we will be playing for cock all at the local hospital & if any one of
The Monkeymen had that attitude the rest of us would beat him to death..... then in true Monkey style probably throw shit at him.

Bet the dressing room was a barrel of laughs after.

That was supposedly 30 minutes into the gig. I wonder if they played anything else up to that point or whether it was 30 minutes of Finley stuck on that 'groove' trying to remember his words? LOL!

Apparently it was 30 minutes off that and nothing else - incredible!

Unfortunately there's quite a few of that sort about even in nwb land. Its as if they're doing the audience a favour just standing on stage.
