Deni BS: Encores that never should have been... (9) RE: BS: Encores that never should have been... 11 Sep 01

I'd go along with MC Fat, and Little Hawk. as audiences we can enjoy things without going daft and after many quieter performances I find i am haunted for months by a voice or a particular song.

The incidents I've seen have chiefly to do with the MC massaging the performers' egos and being terrified to say goodnight in case their offended. but I've also seen top performers who just can't believe no one wants more. It happens.

The gigs we used to do with our last band were very similar to Clinton Hammond's experience. The crowd shows up late and can't dance till tanked. We've been slogging since 8pm with no JOY and at 11pm they start cheering and dancing and don't want to go home!! They've then got a maximum of 15 minutes of effort before they get kicked out.

They just need to turn up earlier or take stronger drink.
