  • A.D. Adams - Crash Street Kids - Gig From Hell
    Worldwide his very own Gig From Hell Yes Hell is gig shaped even for Sweet Creatures A D Adams Most of the gigs go pretty much as planned but this is Rock and Roll so yes there is one entire tour that had to be cancelled Our brand new bus broke down on our way to the way to the first show We got as far as the Arizona New Mexico border and had to get towed into Gallup New Mexico The company that sold us the bus had no intention of towing us back home for repairs nor providing alternate transportation so we were stranded for three days and then the snowstorm hit You get the picture Another one was a rather large Indie Film Festival The production crew were just AWFUL and we had pretty much had it up to here with those clowns The sound was just awful Each band that played before us sounded worse than the one before it By the time we hit the stage most of the audience was gone we were not in too good a mood and we had banged a few cocktails by then Ryan our singer really let em

  • Sam Bean - The Senseless/The Bezerker - Gig From Hell
    and just wanted to go home find a rock dig a big hole under it and hide at the bottom We had been on the road for a few days when we played in Nottingham Even though the venue was tiny it was still an important gig for the reason that it was in Earache Record s hometown our label at the time The idea normally is that you put on a great gig and night out for your label show them all the professionalism you d picked up on the road and reaffirm their faith in you as part of their roster Obviously that wasn t going to happen We were playing with a drummer we d just found ten or so days previously I was over everything and had a mysterious rash growing on my face from the masks we were wearing The guitarist no longer spoke he just clutched at beers and poured them into his face until he fell asleep And our singer Luke turns into a psychopath within twenty four hours of starting tour anyway I didn t want to know what he was up to by that stage We started playing our gig for somewhere between sixty to a hundred people All the Earache staff were crammed up the back of the room English crowds are normally pretty enthusiastic but this crowd took it to another level There was a savage pit right from the get go and for once the stage actually felt like a pretty safe place to be Then the large skinhead started yelling at us The large skinhead was yelling at us to hit him Specifically he wanted us to punch him in the face and break his nose The dude was obviously completely crazy He was yelling before during and after the songs He had a loud voice Even with my in ear monitors and the music blasting out over the PA I could still hear him The dude wouldn t shut up So eventually I did something which ended up on the Berzerker DVD I asked the maniac if he really wanted to be punched in the face He said yes I said really He said really really yes please punch him in the face I said you re not going to kill me if I do He said no it s cool really just punch him break his nose for god s sake We wear in ear monitors with a click track and I could hear the countdown starting to Disregard It s one of our fastest songs It s around 320 bpm or so I heard the click track go 3 2 1 Instead of a bass hit I did a face hit and clocked the guy right in the nose He fell backwards and started bleeding The pit paused to absorb this random act of violence then exploded People went nuts The floor became a warzone The big skinhead came back with a big grin

    longer spoke he just clutched at beers and poured them into his face until he fell asleep And our singer Luke turns into a psychopath within twenty four hours of starting tour anyway I didn t want to know what he was up to by that stage We started playing our gig for somewhere between sixty to a hundred people All the Earache staff were crammed up the back of the room English crowds are normally pretty enthusiastic but this crowd took it to another level There was a savage pit right from the get go and for once the stage actually felt like a pretty safe place to be Then the large skinhead started yelling at us The large skinhead was yelling at us to hit him Specifically he wanted us to punch him in the face and break his nose The dude was obviously completely crazy He was yelling before during and after the songs He had a loud voice Even with my in ear monitors and the music blasting out over the PA I could still hear him The dude wouldn t shut up So eventually I did something which ended up on the Berzerker DVD I asked the maniac if he really wanted to be punched in the face He said yes I said really He said really really yes please punch him in the face I said you re not going to kill me if I do He said no it s cool really just punch him break his nose for god s sake We wear in ear monitors with a click track and I could hear the countdown starting to Disregard It s one of our fastest songs It s around 320 bpm or so I heard the click track go 3 2 1

    that little town what were we thinking So at 3 00am we re driving down a wilderness highway in a vehicle that wasn t working too well in the first place and the heater completely quit It just tanked on us We had no heat and we re driving in a whiteout with visibility of about 1 5 meters in front of the van When it gets like that the road disappears and people literally drive into the ditch get stuck and freeze to death You can t see a bloody thing This went on for hours and finally Brian guitarist took a turn driving and I sat up front with him as navigator watching for the edge of the road if I could see it We could only maintain a speed of about 20 km h it was a life threatening nightmare We were all freezing cold and the sound tech was literally praying Many of us were convinced we were going to die unfound in the ditch because we were the only vehicle we d seen in hours Canadians simply don t travel when the weather gets like that I was lucky to be wearing a full length heavy winter coat and at one point I sat on the drummer to keep him from going to sleep I literally sat on the man You don t go to sleep when you re freezing or you re gone So what happened next The engine seized Damn thing stopped cold pardon the pun That can happen to an engine in arctic temperatures if it isn t in top shape By this time it was about 7 00am and we were incredibly lucky that we happened to be crawling along a stretch of highway that had farms beside it It was
