Blog: Day 2: Hull
We soundchecked and then I nipped outside just in time to collect The Salt And Vinegar On My Chips, who had come ALL the way up from London to see us and LO! we did then fall to general chatting. King Among Men Mr Eddy Bewsher had also arrived, not least because he was putting the gig on, and all was well, if a bit HOT. Earlier it had RAINED quite a bit, but not quite enough to make it UNSTICKY, but we coped manfully with BEER while watching Jody Galvin and then The Rocky Nest, the latter having LOADS of members and even MORE instruments to play.
Then it was our turn to play, and here's what we did:
Hey Hey 16K
The Gay Train
Things'll Be Different (when I'm in charge)
The Symbol Of Our Nation
I Come From The Fens
Better Things To Do
Breaks In The Journey
The Fight For History
Leave My Brother Alone
Tell Me Something You DO Like
We Only Ever Meet In Church
The Lesson Of The Smiths
Billy Jones Is Dead
It was a LONG old set, and also a very SWEATY one! Near the beginning we had a DRUM MALFUNCTION, which is why I Come From The Fens is in there, but otherwise all went well, with We Only Ever Meet In Church getting an especially big cheer.
With that done we had another beer, got packed up (mostly...) and headed back to Tom's parents' again, where we had some TEA, some RASPBERRIES from the garden (NB Tom's Mum had already picked them, we didn't RAID THE PLOT), some LARFS and some CHAT. I also PREMIERED It Only Works Because You're Here for the GROUP, after which Tim decided it would be good to demonstrate his claim that he can play 20 Fall Bass Lines. We chose to retire, tired but happy.
