at the Forum in Kentish Town. It was way cool. Venue wasn’t packed but people were totally into it. First gig in 20 years, shit…
Everything sounded a bit bigger and tighter than the records but without losing the original vibe.
They had real good onstage man-lady banter, bit like Handsome Family, assisted by entertainingly Scottish accents. I think they were stoked to be doing it.
Played all the “hits”. From memory they opened with Son of a Gun, plus Dum Dum, Monster Pussy, Rory Rory Ride Me Raw, Jesus Don’t Want Me For A Sunbeam, Dying For It.
Lots of other stuff, anthems all. Plus two new songs which sounded great, maybe a little more mellow.
They did their Divine cover (Think You’re A Man) as an encore.
Cutest thing was bringing a guy out onstage specially to do the bicycle horn toots in Molly’s Lips.
