For me It was my Orlando performance w/
Pigface when I played my grocery cart.I
warned the sound man that we should check
the levels and he said oh what could some
bastard w/ a grosery cart,a couple of
wrenches,a humbucker,and some maestro
pedals do.I drowned out pigface w/ flanging
percussion.Funny as hell.They paid me in free
Newkies(corporate{yuk}sponsor) and I got so
drunk I forgot my MS1202.Needless to say
someone from the club(The EDGE in Orlando
ya F'ers) took my shite.Anyway I played a
follow up gig in ATL,and they asked me to play
the rest of the tour w/ them but leave my
friend(Erich dumped a bag of wrenches and
metal rods on the bass player from TKK's
Boss pedal board{couldn't handle the
newkies}) behind.I should have done it but all
they offered was $20,gas money and free
beer(now that I think about it that's pretty good
for bangin on a grocery cart).So that'
s my strangest gig/gigs.What's your's.

H-Still got my pigface band pass though.No
it's not a filter it's a laminated card

well, there's the time around 85 the keyboard
player dumped a budweiser in his
memorymoog right before we was supposed
to play a 'showcase' night at the hotshit club in
champaign, ill. I have 2 or 3 other champaign
stories.

or this is a good one. also 80s. a guy out in
this small college town has this bar that
usually has local cover bands, but he likes
original music so he hires original groups he
wants to see every once in a while and eats
the cost. we need to bring our PA. "do we need
to bring our lighting rig, that's a bit extra?" nah,
we got some lights. right, we get there and
there's a couple bedside lamps duct taped
onto some pipes above the stage with those
yellow bug lights inserted for color. the crowd
hated it, they were an REO/BTO sorta crowd.
the owner dug it though. It was the night the
clocks changed back from daylight savings
time, so we ended up having to play an extra
hour. we coulda said phuckit, but it was either
walk out with the cash or have the 'manager'
screw around with collecting. plus pulling into
the hotel garage, we smashed the plywood
box on top of the van that held a bunch of the
gear and had to rig it back together in the
morning before continuing on.

I haven't had any disasters, just some annoyances - like seeing your soundman on the dance floor dancing right in front of the stage, when he should be back behind the mixer.

we were playing in Hirwaun, which is a godforsaken place at the heads of the valleys, in the rugby club, of course, it held about a 150 people. It was the end of the evening and we were playing an encore, i looked over to my left towards the bar and there was this massive fight going on with these rugby types in shirts and ties beating the shit out of each other - we were of course actually playing "Rawhide", i had to stop playing coz i nearly pissed myself laughing.

My first gig with my old industrial/metal outfit.. The club was about 120 degrees, and the dumr box overheated. Drums were cutting in and out the whole gig at random.

Most horrible gig I've ever done. Probably the most horrible gig I've ever even seen
