Bob Slayer’s Punk Rock Chat Show – Free

Bob Slayer/Laughing Horse Free Festival

Bob Slayer provided me with an array of words I could use to describe his gig: ‘travesty,’ ‘nonsense’ or ‘you can’t really call this a show’ are equally apt. Appearing slightly worse for wear, he stumbled through what were essentially no better than drunken ramblings, abusing his assistant and constantly leaving the stage to get another beer in a crude, lacklustre performance that lacked any obvious structure. Admittedly it was their last show, but I expect there were similar results on previous nights, with the same cringe worthy awkwardness. I regret having to be so harsh, but it seems difficult to justify this dim-witted embarrassment of a debauchery when it contained no evidence of any thought or creativity whatsoever.
