So we got our first ever comment on our blog the other day...great! We've got fans!
Waste radio looked like that at Secret Garden Party, you clowns were so high. You were wasted radio!! Ha ha and then you didn't even do a show there. I wish I could get there for free like this and then party. How do I join in? But i thought that was funny anyway guys. Keep high i say something funny might happen to record this way one day Cx

So, putting the multitude of problems that I have with 'C' aside for one second, he (I'm assuming it's a 'he' by the style of wrting...probably late 20's/early 30's, takes mushrooms quite a bit, works 9 - 5 in an office somewhere and owns a bongo that he bought in Peru when he did the Inca Trail when he went traveling on his own a few years ago) has actually, quite rightly pointed out that we haven't put anything up from Secret Garden.
This, however, is where my agreement with 'C', ends.
Firstly, I'd like to point out that none of us gurn when we take drugs. The Showerman, Helouisa and Daniel Paul might get a bit bright eyed and hopeful but apart from that we're so good at looking sober that we could probably all fool you in a game of 'Guess Who's Taken All the Ketemin?'.
Secondly, the reason why the Secret Garden show wasn't ever put up here was because the majority of stuff recorded was somehow ruined by how crap our equipment is. A large amount (mainly the good stuff as well) was inaudible.
We have all either just finished or dropped out of university, so we're pretty poor. Poorer than we were when we were students and could only afford to go to bars that had sawdust on the floor and served free drink until 10pm. So, unfortunately were unable to afford fancy equipment that actually worked.
But we learn from our mistakes and we've got a WASTEradio swear jar going now so we should be decked out with the latest audio equipment pretty soon.
Thirdly. Don't ever make the comparison of 'WASTEradio' to 'WASTED radio'. That's not in the slightest bit funny. In fact, it makes me want to grab your little balls and twist them so you make a 'rrreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!' sound.
You are not, and never will be, invited to 'join in'.
So, after much deliberation - here is what we managed to salvage from our time at Secret Garden.
