Truely fab gig, I can't believe how amazing it sounded. Great energy on stage.

The set list is class...loved having Little Bitch as an encore that's a smart smart move and we got Guns as well Very Happy Very Happy

This is not a criticism as they can play pretty much anything as far as I'm concerned.....but although on the whole I would say the set is tight and well paced, I really wasn't sure about International Jet Set and I didn't think it went down well after Concrete Jungle, the place went flat where I was. It also bothered me that Roddy wasn't on stage then, straight after his supposed bit in the Spotlight Shocked Personally I also didn't think Pearl's Cafe was well received, however after saying on the way home I would have dropped both those songs and swapped them, they sound really really good on the CD and I enjoyed having a live version of Pearl's Cafe, it sounds amazing on the CD, better than it seemed to during the gig...so who knows Question Exclamation

Woulda liked Sock it to em JB, Longshot and Skinhead Moonstomp.
Just personal choice and don't shoot me, but I would also have preferred just Roddy to have sung Concrete Jungle....but I suppose what we got was a bit extra with Terry joining him on it and if you are looking for surprises or something different from gig to gig that was it.

Terry was on good form with him comments to the crowd, made me smile Cool

It'll be on the Abbey Road - Specials.com site of the set list from Hull. I didn't film that song myself, but the sound is crap on my phone anyway. Have you not heard it yet? Confused
