Sparsely attended - I missed the Notting Hill gig but thought TVP's performance was better than the gig with Pete Doherty

This time only one guest - twas me - first on melodica (SillyGirl/Three Wishes) and then on stylophone (All the Young Children on Smack/14th Floor).

Particularly commend Stickymoan's bass playing - really on top form

Sons I know with dashes against the ones I don't (doesn't necessarily mean these are new ones)

Long Time Gone
A Picture of Dorian Gray/I'm A Believer
Look Back In Anger
This Time There's No Happy Ending/Always Somerthing There To Remind Me
Silly Girl
Three Wishes
May You Dream The Sweetest Dreams
All The Young Children On Smack
14th Floor

As the gig was now approaching 12:15 (having been on stage for about an hour) - I was onstage at this point - the first anyone knew - including the band - was that we were still playing our instruments and none of the mikes were working - the soundman had independently decided that we were to finish and that he wanted to go home!

Calls for an encore were politely refused by stickymoan - addressing the situation with one of comeplete helplessness!

I took a photo of a group of fans with Stickymoan and Kev Mann.

All were feeling Ok afterward.

I think I can fill in the dashes for leefact - 'King & Country', 'Stop And Smell The Roses' and 'Everything She Touches Turns To Gold' were also played. And another new song appeared towards the end of the set - 'She Deserves A Halo'. All sounded great to me! Very funny moment was a Scottish guy in the audience repeatedly calling out for an obscure TVP's song...and Dan's responses, which unfortunately I can't remember..All good-natured banter! Comparatively low turnout was due, I think, to there having been very little time to promote the show and it being the middle of January (most folks are skint around this time of the month..especially in January.. I know I am!)

I would have loved to have gone to the past three TVPs gigs but I couldn't afford Doherty's ticket prices and the other two were in 18+ venues.

A girl consumed by fire, we all know her desire from the plans that she has made...
