The Youth Gone Mild

The 'Youth Gone Mild' - a very short story about our first gig!

 Vinny Bear - member of the rock band – ‘The Youth gone Mild’.

Our first gig was last weekend.

Before the sound check, the band members exfoliated and moisture. The night air can be harsh on delicate skin.

As the sunset, it became was a little chilly on stage, so we all decided to put our coats on so that we didn’t get a cold. Desmond (lead guitar) quite easily feels the cold. His mum always insists that he should wear a vest, but as a man of rock, he prefers not to.

During our second number Desmond received a call from his wife.

She was not pleased that he had forgotten to hang out the washing during the afternoon; she had come home to wet towels in the wash basket.

Alfie (bass guitar) had left his sandwiches in the back of the car, and was now feeling hungry.

I am lead vocalist, but often  asked to play the bottles, as we have not yet got enough money together to buy a drum kit.

I really struggled in the chorus of ‘Match stalk Men and Match stalk Cats and Dogs’ as I can barely reach the top notes. Luckily for me, the bass guitar drowns out my errors.

The crowd of three cheered as we finished our first set.

Gran woke up.

Alfie rushed off stage for a wee wee.  His nerves always had this effect on him.

During the interval both Alfie and Desmond applied a lashing of hand cream. Their finger tips were sore from playing.

After light refreshments of lemonade and chocolate biscuits, the band made their way back on stage.

Alfie was late on set. He went for another wee wee. He didn’t really want one, but Desmond said that he ought to go and have a try before moving into the second half.

Gran settled back down for another nap.

The crowd of three sat back down on their deckchairs and waited in anticipation whilst we retuned the bottles.

 Someone in the crowd had mistake one of the bottles as their own bottle of coke and had taken a gulp from it. Instantly they spat out the stale water – but that mouthful had changed the pitch of the bottle and now we were out of tune for the ‘Ring of Fire.’

The crowd of three, soon became a crowd of two, as he had to go home for his tea.

‘The Youth Gone Mild’ – Rock on!
