Firstly, sorry I missed you guys, what with me being at the Kentish town gig.
 
Secondly: EVENT OF THE YEAR!!!!!!
 
Worth the 1200km round trip drive, and the nightmare of driving in that London. (hate that town!)
 
Any worries I may have had that Theo Travis would not be up to standing in for Bloombido (the greatest reed-man in all progdomn.) were soon dispelled. Chris Taylor, I knew, was up to the job, as he had been at the Uncon.
 
I'll rave about the performance later.
 
Support act, Slackbaba, was dull and tedious. In my ignorance I had anticipated a System 7/Eat Static type of set, but ooooh no.Just some bloke playing his record collection from what I could see.Only three people were actually inspired to dance (ok, I was one of them Embarrassed, but only for about 5 mins, to get the "blood" circulating Wink).
 
A word of advice to anyone planning on asking a cockney for directions; Always ensure he is alone and out of ear's range of another cockney. Failure to follow this rule may result in a fight as to who knows the best route, and who's been livin raand ere the longest. The amount of "best" routes to choose from will be exactly the same number as the amount of cockneys embroiled in the dispute, and much shouting and swearing will ensue. As you drive away, thanking them for their invaluable help, you will hear their heated debate continue, perhaps well into the next day.

Perception is truth, ergo opinion is fact.
