M F LIGHTS

All Rights Reserved © 1997 Duncan R Fry

 

Bands always want you to go and pick up the lights from the lighting rental company for them, and take them to the gig in the truck with the PA system. As shitty chores go, it's not too bad, (you can slug them for a few extra bucks for doing it), but driving around to pick them up is a nuisance when you're running late (which is most of the time).

My trusty helper Jim and I were out at the lighting company one afternoon, picking up the lights for the band, and we saw that all the lighting cases had chalk scribbles on them, like 'NSP', 'WFL', and 'MFL'. And the ones we were picking up had MFL written on them.

"What's MFL stand for," I asked innocently, in my unceasing quest for knowledge, and before the lighting guy could answer 'Medium Flood', young Jim hopped in with a far more appropriate answer.

"More Fucking Lights!" he grunted!
