Almost as good as Cambridge, but to my mind the set-list was a bit wonky - Opening with Siver Wands; the kitsch Reptile so soon after; and I've always thought that Evil Guy is a bit of a weak song. And is this the fewest number of UM tracks they've played on tour? Having said all that the power of certain stretches and the two superb encores more than made up for the weak points. And they played Leppo. Yippeee. Now if they'd only segue from Train Round the Bend into Mystery Train I'd be very happy indeed...

Strange but true: I bumped into Matthew Seligman coming out of the Portsmouth v Fulham match just along the coast today. I sidled over to him and without a word showed him my Soft Boys ticket from the previous night. He was ecstatic! We had a fairly long chat about things. A word to the wise: I'm fairly confident there will be a new Soft Boys album...
