TBFM, The Shed, O2 Academy Birmingham and new songs!
Another hectic few days for Resin kicking off last Thursday with Jay, Stacy and Nomad from the awesome TBFM. Resin recorded an episode of their Hell 666 program, we got to nominate 5 things we could send to hell if Jay approved them after much debate, and in return we got 10 seconds per item we got into hell to promote ourselves. It was a piss funny night and you can hear the show on Sunday 17th February on TBFM. And you can listen to the advert here.
We are going to be doing a few things in the future with TBFM, and they seem like fucking awesome people. They have a unsigned band chart and we are in it. Click the image below to vote for us – do it now!!!!! And then go listen to TBFM!!!
Friday night was Glastonbudget auditions at The Shed, Leicester, and the first performance of our new song. 4 bands on, first up a young band who’s name I can’t remember (I’m crap at that), awesome slappy poppy bass player. Next up was a Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers tribute band. They took 25 minutes to setup, played a crap set for 45 minutes (ment to be 30!), and then took forever to get off the stage – wankers with wigs on!
We played next and we had a new song to unleash, and a new set list. New song seemed to go down well, and we were well pleased with the set, felt really strong, all killer and no filler! The soundman at The Shed kindly recorded out set for us, so look out for that soon. Next up was another band who’s name I can’t remember. Kinda liked the front man, and the songs were solid, but performance was a bit arkward. Special shout outs to Tallia and Ashleigh for helping us name our new song – Open Heart Trauma. Check out pictures from this gig here, and watch the video of Open Heart Trauma below:
Resin returned to the O2 Academy 3 on Saturday for an Emma Scott Presents gig with Mordecai, The Whiskey Syndicate and My Great Affliction. We love this venue, and it gives the best sound Resin have ever had, the best place to see us live (so far). Mordecai were on stage first, and they were fucking awesome! You should all go check them out. We went next and lucky for us the place was about full. 40 minutes of pure fun (apart from Chez amp breaking so he couldn’t change sounds, and Marks kick drum pedal breaking), we wish we could play here every night.
Most of the crowd were there to see Whiskey Synicate, and they didn’t disappoint with a great show including a bass solo, something rarely seen at gigs these days. My Great Affliction ended the evening giving the crowd more of what they wanted. Birmingham now has a lot more Resin CD’s and TShirts floating around in it, we will be back a soon as we can! Special thanks to the army of people taking pictures (check them out here), and to everyone who travelled far to come and see us at a awesome venue.
