Excuses started in Sligo in 2004. Paul 13 was playing music with Deadly Wesley Presley (drums) and Dessie was on bass. Jasper answered an ad Paul 13 had placed in the internet cafe looking for a punk vocalist. Dessie was repalced on bass by Shane Pain, who was a competent bassist. So we got a good few tunes together and did our first gig in december 2004 at Drumshanbo Mayflower centre. Then Paul 13 went on holiday for a year at bertie's pleasure palace in Castlerea. He came back november 2005, got the band going again, concentrated on getting new songs together. Did a few gigs - Sligo regularly enough, Galway, Killibegs, Dublin, etc. Recorded the 13 songs we had at start of July 2006. Played at the SAI festival (leechrum) , Drumshanbo, then bass and drummer left the band. Poo Promotions had organised a 4 date tour for Subhumans at start December 2006, so we had to find new drummer and bassist. Brian from Sligo band the Derelicts became our bassist and his mate Omid, our new drummer. Got these lads learning the set good enough in time for the tour, which was great; Belfast,Dublin,Sligo,& Derry. Brian & Omid left in 2007,after the spectacle that was our appearance at GGi in Belfast that September, where we were shit, due in no small part to P13 having downed a bottle of whiskey earlier and playing different songs to the rest of us!!! Brian & Omid went to college. In Jan 2008 drummer David (crumble) Campbell and bass Ambrose (Jnr) Tully joined Jasper and Paul13 to keep the Excuses coming. Played some great gigs from May 2008 til Nov 2009 Punks Picnic Letterkenny, Citizen Fish, Restarts, 3 gigs in Scotland, 3 gigs in Cumbria plus many many more. Nov 2009 Crumble left to persue sax. As of Jan 2010 Excuses has a strong line up with Jasper, Paul13 and Junior still making it up as they go along but now joined with the skin breaking volume and speed of Gaz Derelict of Crack Pack fame.&nbsp
