Mind you I never said it was going to be a tv smith show and I never mentioned any club name...

Hope you managed to enjoy yourselves, in memory of a great fan...  :)
I'm already looking forward to the gigs in Germany (early in March) I plan to attend.

Just a quick one, suffering from sleep deprevation, what seemed like a good idea after a few pints yesterday 'lets go to the gig tonight' despite having to get up before 05.00 this morning and working a 12 hour shift (couldn't book anytime off), doesn't seem such a great idea at this moment in time:-\

After the sad news of yesterday morning, Mr C5 losing his battle, being sensible and practical didn't seem right, so decorating was put on hold and we went to the pub instead, after a couple of pints we decided we would go to the gig too  8

Got off the train and headed for the Clockhouse, most of EC1 was closed so it was quite a surprise to find the Clockhouse buzzing , there were a lot more people than I expected and quite a mixed bunch too  :)

TV and Gaye were there and few other familiar faces, TV checks what time we have to leave and it is decided he will start at 21.30 and finish at 23.00 (how cool, we won't miss any of the set)  8)

There is a large screen with lots of old footage including Great British Mistake and Bored Teenagers by the Adverts, Gaye marvels at how young Tim looks in the films  :D  The Buzzcocks are on the screen when it's time for Teev's set, he thinks it would have been much better if the Adverts were playing then he could have interupted himself, how bizzare  :-\

Of course there were a couple of lump in the throat tear jerking moments and alas I fear this will be an ongiong problem for the forseeable future when any songs from Channel 5 are played  :-\

Here's the set list
No Time to be 21
Safety in Numbers
Only One Flavour
On Your Video  - TV dedicated this song  for a friend who couldn't be here
Televisions Over
Not A Bad Day (a bit of sound problem so played in '2 parts')
Earthbound
New Church
Lords Prayer
*Fire in the Darkness* (Whoops the one hubby pointed out that I missed)
NIMN
Bring the Bull Down (still my current favourite)
Lion and the Lamb

There is a bit of banter from down the front something about miserable songs so to cheer things up the next song is ..........

I know what you want

then TV anounces it's back to normal then with one of his more miserable songs
Big Fish
Runaway Train Driver
Thin Green Line (accompanied by banter about brushing teeth and water leaks!!!)
You saved my life
Arms of my enemies
Punk Rock Poem
GGE
Bored Teenagers
One Chord Wonders

Right on time it's all over and it is a quick goodbye and off to catch the train  :)

Thanks for the quick but still quite extensive review!  :)
I'm really looking forward to the solo shows in March (as it looks like I won't make the April band gig)...
Sure there will be those moments when we think of friends who can't be there. But, just like someone said wisely, live for today...
