Every year Slo' Tom and his cohorts in Manpower host a Season's Beatings party so they can further abuse their long-suffering audience. The 2014 edition stretched over two days, but I missed the first, more country-flavoured outing, instead checking out the Sunday lineup of heavy metal and bad comedy.
First up, equal opportunity offender The Unknown Wrestler served up so low-brow humour.
Next up was the debut performance of Metal Party, featuring a local supergroup lineup, fronted by Felix, son of Yogi.
Guitar action with Blake and Yogi!
Rhythm section action with Eric and Leigh!
Invisible orange action!
Yogi doesn't get much of a break, because it was time for some BlackBread. Ian handles the bass duities.
Megan was sounding particularly good.
Mother's Children also played a tight set.
Rhythm section action with Seiji and Tim!
Then it was time for the annual "terrible film" - that is, an SBTV broadcast with Anderson and Anderson (or Blake and Remi).
Manpower wrapped the evening up with some rocking tunes, plus a cover of Ratt's Round And Round.
Tom works the floor!
Merry Christmas, all!
