Do we go on & play a "rocker" straight off? No, we go all WEIRD n spacey instead - heheheh..."Amnesia" - a new idea we just started working on - which ran into "Mad Daddy Drives A U.F.O." (a track from our "Curse" album we've never played live before - ever!) it's a cover version of The Cramps' song "Mystery Plane" & Nik dedicated it to Lux and Ivy - without whom .... then I sped the beat up & we morphed into "E.S.T. (Trip To The Moon)".... then "Ignore The Machine" which was having its 30th anniversary - yes we recorded our 1st single 30 years ago! (see story below) eek! Time flies eh wot?
Then "Hurricane" & "Attack" - which prompted Sir Moz to leap excitedly into the air in a most unprofessional manner befitting a keys tech - heheh - nice one! "Zombiefied" & "Dance Of The Dead" followed. Because time was short after "I Walk The Line" there was no point arsing about leaving the stage, farting about for a bit & then mincing back on for an "encore" so we carried straight on & played "Smells Like..." - needless to say it was a "steamer" (ahem!) - as in steaming shit? Oh well - please yersleves!
Tickets for the Saturday were sold out some weeks in advance. We heard that people had come from as far away as Australia, Russia, South America for the festival... Big thanks to everyone who made the journey to see us whether that was a few kilometres or thousands of miles!
My vintage analogue gear is great fun - especially when the power gets TURNED OFF! - NOT! (aaarrghhh) & add to that the extremely high temperatures on-stage - some of my keyboards' tuning goes off as the heat increases - which is a challenge (ha!) BUT at least our sounds ain't on computers - when we play live - it is EXACTLY that - LIVE!!!
