Yep,I was there,thought the band were excellent,really well-paced gig.The venue I was not so sure about,a bit clinical and `new`,and the lighting engineer needs a good shafting for constantly leaving the house-lights on,but I was there with good mates and we all had a top night.Pauline And Gaps were in fine voices,and the newer stuff sounded much better live.Big respect to Talisman ,who sounded great too,though I did miss much of their set.

Yes Phil I agree the venue was a bit odd. I was expecting a bigger crowd to be honest but thought both bands were excellent and thought Pauline and Gaps were top draw.

Yes went along expecting the gig to be in the the main Jaguar hall - which by the way has very poor acoustics - so was more somewhat surprised to find it in a carpetted smaller room - but the gig, the sound and size of crowd (450 i am told) was perfect. More gigs required here please! - But open the big bar not just the small one.
