The Green Room

Sometime in the summer of 2018 Doozer “Hey Les, I see you have a gig in Taunton, I’m at a loose end, can you add me to the bill”

es (to Jake Martin, organiser of the gig) “Hello Jake, can we add Doozer to the bill tonight?”

Jake “No mate sorry, the bill is full and anyway we don’t like Doozer*”

Les “Oh, that a shame, fully understand”

Les (to Doozer) “There’s no room on the bill tonight but I have a cunning plan. Why don’t you join me in my set and we can play alternate songs?”

Doozer “that’s a great idea, do you know my songs well enough”

Les “ Nope”

Doozer “Wicked!”

A few days before we were talking about smoking and the idea of donut flavoured vapes came up. Someone said “oh that’s a good name for a band… Smokin’ Donuts.” Doozer McDooze (festival legend) and Leslie George Carter (minor indie celebrity) join forces and the whole is bigger than the parts. Someone on the internet said “Two of the brightest talents on the circuit combined to form the brilliant concept that is Smokin’ Donuts” Someone else said “That was the best gig I have seen for ages, can’t wait to see them again” Someone else said “that’s 45 minutes, I’ll never get back”
