I wasn't planning on going to this until I saw the "Mix CD lucky dip" mentioned and thought it would be fun to see what I could put together and what I could get back from it.

For some reason I used to be more into novelty songs than I am now and I had a large collection of them and C64 SID music. If I hadn't started going to see bands regularly, I would still be mainly listening to that type of music.

Even though I hadn't heard of the support bands before, I thought they went well in particular Duke Bativa. Ben Birchall might have to take some time off the Breakfasters if the band goes on tour during the year. They don't have a CD out as yet, but I am sure they will do so soon.

The last few times I have seen Georgia Fields she has played solo or with a duo, so it was great to see her play with a full band. I managed to resist making drill sounds when she sang "this is not a drill" as it was her nigh. It was a great night even though I left a bit early so I could catch the tram in time and not have to wait half an hour in the cold and rain.
