8 people watched our set.
That is hilarious because i have seen it happen in which a thrash metal band was playing and get a good response lots of people up watching them and rocking out and the next band came on and said "Are you ready for a bit of indie now??" Floor Emptys!!

So infront of a big crowd of family, friends, paying punters etc i had to stop the set and go to the toilet!
So i will never ever drink water before a gig again !!

At least i learnt a lesson haha
I remember reading in Rhythym (spelling) magazine Gene hoglan asked about his worst gig experience and he told of a time when he had a stomach bug and went through the set trying not to vomit or poo. along come some big fill and he poos himself mid way through it
We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.
