No mercy shown, no quarter given. The final date of the Gits world tour, at Banningham on New Year's Eve, saw the band play for nigh on three hours. As sultry lead vocalist Tom Flotsam told the audience: "We've suffered for our music. Now it's your turn."
Flotsam feet: sultry?
The Gits NYE gig is set to have female fans panting even more ardently (as they grip their zimmer frames), with rumours that the band will dress up in topless lycra in honour of Suffolk popular beat combo the Darkness. However, vocalist Dim Torgan sounded a note of caution: "We're having trouble finding big enough sports bras." HAVE YOUR SAY: do you want the boys to wear lycra?

Gits: going topless?
.... or Gitting in Action?
Either way, Bambino Git missed training Saturday. Explaining his actions, he murmured about 'Italian' connections – but he was seen out shopping with his wife later that same day. Asked to comment, Fergusson said he was sure there was a reasonable explanation for the star's odd behaviour. Other gits maintained a dignified silence, except Stinkin’ Git whose comments can be found on our sister site, contractkillers4u.com. Bambino is expected to play New Years Eve, but he is likely to be fined, the club minimum punishment being two weeks wages, or about 36p.

The Gits' reunion gig is a sell out! Hordes of fans were left disappointed as the last tickets went and the 'closed' signs appeared on the box office. Rumours of an extra gig on New Years Day were quickly quashed by Ricardo 'Full of Git' Kershaw: "We'll be too p***ed."

14 years to the day after their first number one, the Gits are looking forward to the reunion New Year's Eve Gig. But all is not well in Git-town. Norman 'Buster' Smith, the band's original drummer, is out on parole and rumoured sightings have placed him in the Banningham neighbourhood. "We're not scared of that big a**e" says a bullish Chris 'Dumb Git' Porter, brandishing his size nine sticks. "And if he thinks he's getting his triangle back, he's got another think coming."

Ah, the Gits. What memories! Ever since the bus-top gig fans have been clamouring for a reunion. Well, it's here (the lads having recovered from the concussion caused by Brampton railway bridge). The Empire, Banningham is the venue. The date: New Year's Eve 2003/4. Be there or suffer remorse forever.
