Fibbers, York, Fri 20th August (23/8/99)
Another top quality live performance handed out to the smaller than I expected audience. On Tour Drum Technician was there as usual and as the audience chanted "it's just like watching Brazil" We were treated to a mix of old, middle and new songs, the highlights for me being:
There were plenty of views exchanged with the audience the most memorable, and possibly controversial, being Nigel's view that Pele was overrated - "he missed from the half way line and missed when he dummied the keeper. Jarzinho was better. Holland 74/78 were a better side than Brazil." Then he give us the opening riff of Iggy Pop's "Lust For Life" with the words "there goes Johnny Rep"
We also had a good riff of the Dead Kennedys' "Holiday in Cambodia" with the whole band joining in.
- Gubba Lookalikes (excellent new one)
- Look Dad No Tunes
- All I want for Christmas
- Turned up, Clocked on
- Friday Night
- Dead Men Don't Need Season Tickets ("Written when the Doctor said Neil only had 3 months to live.")
90 minutes of pure enjoyment for 7 quid, great night out - carry on touring.
