Yes, it was a corker of a gig - much better than last time I saw him (a
rather lacklustre performance at Oxford). He was in full-on jangle mode
for most of the evening - Birds in Perspex, Oceanside, QoE, Madonna of the
Wasps etc. Also a nice duellijng harmonicas version of Queen Elvis with
Tim Keegan. High point for an Egyptians fan was the appearance of Morris
Windsor to duet with Robyn on Airscape, then to play drums on Kingdom of
Love and Insanely Jealous - three Soft Boys on stage together!

Regular drummer Patch Hanna returned to the seat for Eight Miles High,
which had Morris and Tim on stunning harmony vocals. This was followed by
'a George Harrison song'. What would you choose, folks? Soomthing? Bewur
of Darkness? Taxman? No, none of these, he had dug out the obscure Beatles
B-side 'Old Brown Shoe' and the whole band zipped into it with joie de
vivre and aplomb. Finale was 'Beautiful Girl'.

Anyhow, Darbi, this one was super-wizzo-sonic!
