Nev and the band played a 45 min set.

Setlist:

Simmer down
Sammy dead
Lunatics
Message to you
Monkey Man
Johnny too bad
Don't call me names
It's you
Do the dog
? It's a classic tune, but i don't know who it's by? I'm not an anorak Laughing
Gangsters/Guns of navarone/Instrumental frenzy!
Ghost Town


I recorded the gig on my fone (audio only). A bit distorted in parts but generally a great listen. I love Nev live and have played this every day, especially whilst cycling into town (I play it loud without headphones lol) to do my volunteering stint @ British Heart Foundation. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Nev's song Interpretations are a great pick me up, and have also helped me get in the zone ahead of many a darts tournament. Cool

Indeed Shan. I've lost count of the venues we met up to watch Nev do his thing, many years before any mention of a Specials onion Laughing

I know - I remember his first gig when he came back to the UK, a Sunday night in Northampton's Chicago Rock (I think it was that place) - half filled with chavettes on a hen night, me & Jet & another skin mate were the only ones who actually came to see Nev on purpose I think - excellent performance, I loved it, but can't have done too much for poor Nev's ego playing in a shithole like that!!

What you mean there was no "real fans" there ????
Saw Nev and The Beat at a 2000 capacity Jumping Jacks in Southampton and there was 12 people there and still the man put a show on.

Chicago cafe? Confused

I remember Nev's first gig back in the UK as being @ Nottingham Rock City main venue (3,000?) Laughing

A tribute Madness band also on the bill and maybe a Jam cover band too?
Bad Manners headlined, with the Can Can girls making it great finale!

It was where i first heard the phrase "pint of wife beater!" Stella Artois. What a strange thing to have stored in the grey matter!

After the gig Nev was on the merch giving away posters (or was it t-shirts?) ..to the ladies, and he wouldn't give me one, even when the venue was virtually empty lol

No it was defo Northants as we got told off by the police for driving up a bus only lane to the venue, lol!
No Stew - just a handful of regulars who happened to have a gig at their local, massive bonus for them that it was Nev though! Wink Very Happy
