AN open mic night in a pub has been ruined by every single person who performed at it.
The new night at The Ram in Trowbridge began badly with student poet Tom Logan reading a political rant about how the Tories should ‘legalise the weed’.
He was followed by 41-year-old Julian Cook who attempted to cover three Jeff Buckley songs to widespread confusion and fear from the audience.
Compere Stephen Malley lied: “Great stuff there from Julian.”
Following Cook were rapper/office worker Tom Booker and singer/songwriter Mary Fisher who ended her rendition of Imagine by saying “I can’t do this” and running off-stage in tears.
After Fisher was estate agent poet Norman Steele, who talked about the downsides of political correctness, before the compere ended the evening by playing for five times as long as anyone else was allowed to with songs that he had written for “a girl I hoped would show up tonight”.
