Vas Deferens and Black Lick, Adelaide Tavern, Wellington, Nov 27 2008

Vas Deferens frontman Luger Douche got in touch with me through Youtube because he liked the way I'd filmed the UK Subs at Valve. He was hoping I could film his band playing there but due to circumstances that never happened. The major reason being the venue closed down due to family illness. It really is a shame as it was a huge supporter of underground music and had sound nailed compared to most other Wellington venues.

Wellington band, Black Lick played first. I was eager to check them out, because on their myspace site, their singer didn't sound a million miles away from Blaine Cook of The Accused. I arrived while they were playing and was impressed enough with their first live appearance to pick up their CD.

Vas Deferens, who were playing 20th anniversary shows, turned out to be a punk covers band and played songs by Zodiac Mindwarp, Ramones, Sex Pistols, Guns 'n' Roses and a few others I can't remember. Even though I went home due to tiredness during their set I'm sure Luger Douche might hold some sort of record for the most beer drunk by a frontman during his own band's set.
