Live physical antics

Good day pit dwellers.

Quick query here. I used to have really long hair (like so long it would tickle my arse crack when taking a shit) & I used to be able to headbang/windmill like **** for an entire set when playing live. I shaved the hair off a few years back & have recently started gigging again. Problem is Iím looking a bit static now. Iíve tried throwing in a few guitar swings, Busted jumps etc but still running out of ideas after 5 minutes.

My questions is this pit folk, what the **** do you do at gigs to stop yourself looking static/boring? What do you do to put on a show?

P.S. We are a recently established band playing small venues. We do not have access to pyrotechnics, backing dancers, grand pianos, bloody spitting midgets etc.

Or mini Stonehengeís. WOOOO! Spinal Tap \m/

OHH, I play metal. So I canít get a stool or owt.

Forever yours,

Andy

The only thing I took from that is that at least you don't have to worry about getting your own shit in your hair anymore.

Just make sure you know the offside rule, otherwise that could be awkward.

I just kind of groove to the music.

Now that i play more bass, i tend to do the typical bassist movements like head bobbing and the occasional bass face.

I may introduce a reading of the official FA rule book mid-set to clarify.

What's a bass face? I'm only knowledgeable about the guitar shredding/smug face. Is it something like a cum face?
