From JT: Thanks to Mike for rescuing the review from his shredder.

This week's 12 Bar show didn't quite hit the peaks of the previous
two, but was still up to scratch. The electric section was perhaps
not as enjoyable for some reason - maybe I was just too close to
the guitar amp, but Robyn's vocals seemed less distinct than usual.
The acoustic set was fine, and the encore with Homer was excellent,
as usual. Good to see a return of the green jeans, too.

Shirt report: Black 12 Bar 't', then the white one with dots for
the encore.
Lasagne report: a bit cold this week, but the bread's up to a
decent size again. The chilli seemed to get the thumb's up, too.
