Bit of a mixed bag Shocked ...pre gig great at the Turk's Head, Roddy made an appearance, got a photo or two with him Cool Cool , absolute gent, was outside as he was leaving, he headed off in the wrong direction only to realise his mistake and as he was passing stopped for a few words and I pointed him in the right direction. Lots of faces I recognised from the Marquee gig in Cork last year too. Great sounds as well from del bionic, warmed up the crowd and a few beers helped too.
Gig itself had a bit of a strange feel to it. Opened up with Concrete Jungle to roars of approval… Lighting was different to what you usually get, no backdrop, there seemed to be a few problems with the sound with Terry complaining about it at one stage, Lynval bantering with the crowd, a few additions to the set list and a couple which didn’t get played in the encore... Maggie's Farm, Enjoy Yourself and You're wondering now... replaced by Guns... with Lynval introducing it as ... we don't normally play this but....(Terry didn’t feature for the encore Sad ) . Liked the more dubby feel on Stereotype. Anyway still a great gig and still buzzing Very Happy Very Happy , will be interested to see what happens at tonight’s gig.

Roddy should have his sense of direction checked Razz
There's still nothing wrong with it!
