Canterbury  Lady Luck.

T.V. made a welcome return to Canterbury after almost 3 years, this time at the very compact Lady Luck.

With support from Russ Crimewave, Punka and The Remains.

Russ & Punka put in very good sets and I liked The Remains (although Mr Slaughterboy, thought otherwise), their set involved such classics as Rockaway Beach, Sheena, I fought The Law as well as Blockbuster & Shang-a-Lang....

But on to the main act...

With only an hour spot because of a 11pm (ish!) curfew, TV was ready at 2200hrs, unfortunately the sound was almost non-existant during the first song, but he soldiered on while the "techie" restrung the speakers and away we went at full tilt from the middle of song 2.   All in all an excellent set and I know that Emma our hostess was more than pleased with the response, a "near capacity" of 75 and the knowledge that my badgering to get her to get TV down was worth it.

So the set-list:-

Flavour, 21, Cast, Replay, CITL, Delete, Lion, Expensive, GBM, Imm Rich, Gen Y, Land of the overdose, String, Good times, Big fish, Punk Rock Poem, GGE, BT, OCW   and the encore of We Who Wait.

So gig 49 for me done, and couple more in the book for 2016!!!.....

Another great gig in Lincoln’s very friendly Jolly Brewer last night. I arrived to find Tim, Alan G and Billy Liar in a rather worryingly empty looking venue – an unusual situation for TV in Lincoln. Rest assured, many more were outside enjoying the fresh air/smoking a fag (Delete as applicable).

I haven’t seen Billy Liar previously (http://www.billyliarmusic.com/), but I’ll certainly seek him out in future. A very powerful performance with just an acoustic guitar and a great vocal delivery style. Very impressive right hand work – softly fingerpicking at times and wildly percussive at others. Billy went down very well and I’d be surprised if he isn’t invited back there soon.

TV took to the stage at 9.45 and delivered his usual hi-power performance, complete with some nice back-and-forth banter with the crowd, so he played some newer material alongside the more established songs and threw in the debut of new song “No Control” – great stuff. Another surprise at the end as Tim and Billy joined forces on OCW and Runaway Train Driver, both of which went down a storm.

I enjoyed it all so much I completely forgot to ask Tim if he was also having a UK launch event for his “Alternative Top 50” book. If you’re going to Bradford tonight, please ask.

Have fun in Yorkshire tonight folks!

Thanks for the review! Always a special one when a new song is performed for the first time!  :D
(We're getting closer to a new album by the number of new songs played in recent months...)

Just checked out Billy Liars web site as a result of your post Fred. Very impressed, so impressed that I've ordered a C D off his web site!
It's nice to stumble across new good music when most of your music purchases are back catalogue stuff from the 70's and 80's. Refreshing to listen to. Thanx Fred!
