I don't like it - Please explain?

  • Got turfed off stage at Coolum "folk" club last night. This has not happened to me since 1977 when William Crawford is in Complete Control did "she's got herpes" at the Mosman Hotel. Not sure why it was exactly, they didn't tell us. The venue was an RSL maybe it was Homeland Borderland Wasteland or Annette's Mother of God? Was pissed off at the time. As I was packing up the gear we won the seafood plate raffle so that was some consolation. Pity because the set was heading somewhere..but we never got to the redemption songs.

      • David Messer You should be proud to have been chucked off stage. Obviously your song hit the mark. But what's a penus?

      • Charlie Bunt yes you have to see it as a good omen. i remem when we 1st started out with puppets a snooty christian school gave us hell and after that we were warmly received by all. diff courses for horses and thankfully the odd neg in the minority.

      • Geoffrey Datson the issue is some confused convergence of RSL & Christian belief. At our table there had already been skewed philosophical (ha!) debate about the state funding of Christian schools before we started the set. I was a fool to imagine there would be room in that scene for us & am quite happy to find somewhere else to play . Annette correctly sees it as a discrimination issue and won't be leaving it there that at all.
