Somehow, no matter how great a band sounds from the audience's perspective, if the musicians on stage aren't happy with their stage monitor sound, they'd be really pissed. By them being pissed equals poor delivery caused by the irritation which ultimately mean that they are pissed at the engineer. I so happen to be in that position last night.

I still don't think it's my fault because it was such a last minute thing, I was called in to do the show 30 mins before the bands went on and some of the lines were faulty. The mix sounded good though despite these issues. But somehow, there's just this bad feeling that floats around you when people don't understand how much work you've put into it and not appreciate you for it. Oh well, it's just one of those nights. If things like these don't happen now, they'd eventually happen anyway. Plus, things like these give me the opportunity to learn and make mental notes.

Mental note #1: Don't take up last minute gigs.

Broken Scar's album, Midnight In St. Kilda is available on

    nttrue that, your eagerness to take any gig at anytime could cause your reputation to have black marks,

    its good that you've learn it now, but bro, remember, in our industry a black mark is still a black mark.

    no matter how good the money, if its too risky, dont take it as yet.

    Yeah, I agree with what you said. Whether you are in the right or wrong, it doesn't matter, as long as it's a bad impression, it remains that way. Oh well, hard lesson learned.
