Holliday in Cambodia

It mighten have been holiday time in the Kingdom with most people whisking themselves off to down to Sihanoukville for the weekend - but that didn't deter 'Holliday In Cambodia' from entertaining an appreciative audiance at Sharky's last night!

With their two leading ladies (Jenna and Lynsey) also away on holiday - you could have been forgiven into thinking that the remaining boyz would have struggled to fill the void.

However, this was certainly not the case, as Alistair, Damien and John turned in a performance that had the Sharky faithfull up 'singing and dancing' throughout the night!

With some of the best vocal harmonies ever heard on the Sharky stage, the boyz left 'no stone unturned' to delight the more than willing holiday audiance.

Great acoustic renditions of classic rock songs such as Neil Young's 'Rocking In A Free World' , Jimi Hendrix's 'All Along The Watchtower' and Bob Dylan's 'Like A Rolling Stone' - were not out of place alongside great punk acoustic covers of songs such as The Undertones 'Teenage Kicks'' The Clash's 'Should I Stay Or Should I Go' and The Buzzcocks 'Ever Fallen In Love.'

Infact, so vast is Holliday In Cambodia's 'non-stop' repertoire that Ingo (our friendly neighbourhood drummer) went onstage to help out with a few songs and ended-up doing a marathon two-hour set! Great stuff !

Karen (from Captain Jack) then jumped on-stage and helped out quite admirably with the vocals on 'Sympathy For The Devil.'

Not to be out-done, husband Matt then grabbed the microphone and suprised everyone by singing along quite tunefully to the boyz rendition of The Pogues 'Dirty Ol Town' (even though with Bleys baseball cap-on, he looked more like a Beastie Boy than Shane MacGowan!)

However, mayhem soon followed and with an endless stream of tambourine players, the stage was set for the grand finale!

And Holliday In Cambodia duly delivered - with a rousing encore that included 'Whiskey In The Jar', 'Wild Rover' and the great Thin Lizzy classic 'The Boys Are Back In Town.'

Great stuff fellaz! Can't wait to see you back on the 25th June with a full line-up! Just hope our stage is big enough!

That's the wrap!

Cheers Dave The Punk
