Another excellent concert from Tim Booth and the crew, have they ever done a bad gig?

Hadn’t listened to the new CD much prior to the concert so unfamiliar with some of the songs but the classics always enough to keep things kicking along although noticeably this time Laid was missed out along with Sit Down.

Also good to catch up with some of the old Autoliv crew in Paul Ryan, Lee Cornwell and Mark Stephen
