Surprise!

I hope the mods forgive me for putting this here, but I want this to get noticed and about "Your Band"... people check out that section not that often these days. If anything is wrong, just say it!

We have been keeping this a kind of a secret until now, but oh well, here goes. Four slovak members of the BBS have formed an occasional Offspring Revival Band(occasional because the members live 500 kilometers apart)! We have prepared a 20-song playlist which we will play for the first time together this saturday on a minifestival called "Slepačí Úlet (http://www.facebook.com/events/451974878167746/)"("Chicken Run"). The band consists of:

JANNY - drums
Dexterone - bass, backing vocals
JAAKUB15 - guitar, backing vocals
me(dff_punk) - guitar, *ugh* main vocals

The setlist is a surprise for now and I hope the BBS will support us and wish us luck! We are really stoked to play these songs because we are all long-time fans and The Offspring is in the veins of every member, so it'll be like a dream come true! Thanks for your support and there is a high chance the whole concert will be recorded! Stay tuned :)

It wasn't so bad. We only had like 4 rehearsals before the concert and it was pretty good I guess. One thing that bothered me was that we were really nervous during the first half(and we didn't play/sing anything before on that day) so especially my singing wasn't so entertaining but when we "embraced the stage" it was pretty cool and we played the second half really above average and I am really proud of us. And we did something really challenging that even The Offspring themselves don't do: We played all the songs in the original tuning! Don't know if it could be possible for other shows though. I truly hope that some videos will be posted, I just need to contact my friend who organized the festival. Oh and here is a photo teaser:

1. Have You Ever
2. Come Out And Play
3. Elders
4. Bad Habit
5. Get It Right
6. Gotta Get Away
7. Stuff Is Messed Up
8. What Happened To You?
9. Forever And A Day
10. Gone Away (feat. Dexterka)
11. Dirty Magic (feat. Dexterka)
12. Dividing By Zero
13. Slim Pickens
14. Kick Him When He's Down
15. Dammit, I Changed Again
16. Race Against Myself
17. Pretty Fly (feat. Dexterka)
18. L.A.P.D.
19. The Kids Aren't Alright
20. Want You Bad
21. Self Esteem (with "crowd" participation)

Some songs went good, some not so good, but we had a good time!

No Crossroads? No Tehran? No Nothing from Something? No Forever and a Day? No Something to Believe in? I guess I don't have to regret not going there that much after all ;)

All right setlist but needs more S/T songs.

No Cruising California??! Come oooooooooooooon. I'd like to see SIFU, oh sorry SIMU. You know what part. This scene is in a swimming pool? It looks like. There should be water in it then. That would be so Offspringish. Oh, and Lost could paint the girls gold.

Really? We might change up the setlist a little if you organize something in Trnava :P

Anyway, you don't know what long debate preceded the final setlist. We wanted to play a lot more songs, but we're not machines. And if you want to cover every album and not leave out at least the most important hits(we were not playing it just for us you see) it's really a hard job. It would be so much easier if The Offspring just had less good songs. I admit, we were arguing a lot about the setlist, some of us wanted this song, the other wanted that song, etc. and we are really happy to come out with this compromising setlist :) Now I see how hard it is for The Offspring themselves!

P.S.: Our special version of Cruising California was originally in the setlist, but we left it out. If we ever perform again(I hope we will), we might play it someday!

P.P.S.: I will have the videos within a week, sorry for the delay.

That might not be a problem. There's a pub with 3 stages that organizes concerts for new/underground bands every week. They (I think) do it all for free.

Bump. I know I promised videos, we have been trying to get them sound better, but it's taking a bit long. So here's a sound snippet.

http://www.divshare.com/download/20644685-a33

Do you know how hard it is to sing The Offspring with original tuning? I apologize for some mistakes, instrumental or lyrical, but it was our first gig and I hope you like it. The snippet contains the end of Gotta Get Away, full What Happened To You, Forever And A Day, Gone Away(feat. Dexterka) and beginning of Dirty Magic (feat. Dexterka). Haha.

Yeah, it's hard. When I try to do that, I sound so pathetic. Like a baby. :D Pretty good job, I really liked What Happened To You! The sound world instrumentally (drums mostly) is like from a bootlegs from Offspring's early Smash gigs, which I like. :p

Although it's totally great that for example it's been a year since we first heard Days Go By, I'd like to inform you there are people who play songs from The Offspring and working hard to justify their legacy. Haha. The second gig went great, we even had two encores which were unrehearsed, people were having so much fun, and so did we, and we have VIDEOS! Coming really(and this time I mean it), really soon. Here's the setlist with a lot of deep cuts to keep you interested:

1. Get it Right
2. Come out and play
3. One Fine day
4. Kick Him When He's down
5. All I want
6. Nothing from something
7. I choose
8. Hypodermic
9. Gotta Get Away
10. Dividing by zero
11. Slim Pickens
12. D.U.I.
13. Staring at the Sun
14. L.A.P.D.
15. Come Out Swinging
16. Gone Away
17. Amazed
18. Pretty Fly
19. Beheaded
20. Bad Habit
21. The Kids aren't Alright
ENCORE 1:
22. Cruising California
23. Forever and a day
24. Self Esteem
ENCORE 2(unexpected):
25. Blitzkrieg Bop
26. Want You Bad

There will be videos! :)
