Anyway, down to the meat- this is a very approximate list in no particular order other than first and last...
Touch Sensitive Kill Your Sons (? this is what i took it to be, my head was very near speaker and Smith is prone to mumbling) He Pep! The Joke The Caterer Inevitable Ten Houses of Eve Antidotes F-'oldin Money Bound Tom Regazzi Shake-Off (? I can't remember whether they played this, I think they did) Perfect Day Ol' Gang Big New Prinz
maybe more- I was very drunk- there were a couple I didn't know, but they were good. and my brain is determinedly telling me that they played Ivanhoe's Two Pence but I don't think they did, maybe Levitate.
AND IT WAS EXCELLENT.
Good small venue.
All the Marshall Suite stuff sounded fantastic- antidotes, bound, and inevitable sounded really well imagined highlighting what i like about the album. Lots of really different but related sounds. Tom Regazzi was suitably cartoon reggae menacing lots of going up and down hills. The Caterer was brilliant- there's a lot more space in Fall songs nowadays- this weird individual's soliloquoy I find quite affecting- they're a lot simpler in lots of ways, both in words and music, which makes them even stranger and the gig really brought this out.
The Joke, f-oldin' money, perfect day, were really invigorating, not the best ten houses I've heard and I miss the bass a bit in Big Prinz, a lot more guitary this but still good. Ol' Gang was excellent. And Jung Nev's shouting is a damn sight better than Mike Bennett.
The crowd were excellent too, lots of yelling for more. A band at the heighth of their powers, lots of new worlds being spun in new ways- absolutely fantastic.

The thurday night experiance 19986 and play dead goths eh finally died a death in the 1990s.
