Fire Engine/Earthquake/Tried to Hide/Splash 1/Slip Inside This House /You Don’t Know (How Young You Are)/Bull Of The Woods/Monkey Island/She Lives (In a Time of Her Own)/You Gotta Take That Girl/Kingdom of Heaven (Is Within You)/(I’ve Got) Levitation/Roller Coaster/Reverberation/You’re Gonna Miss Me/Two Headed Dog (Red Temple Prayer)
I think Roky managed “hello” and a bit later on he said “thanks”. Not the chattiest of frontmen (auto typing changed that to fattest which he would probably have taken pretty easily) but the music, once we realised he was playing 13th floor elevator material rather than RE and the Aliens, was pretty good.
A weird man and a weird show which was exactly as we expected!
Plus a guy playing a jug on stage – a first for me. At times it sounded like someone doing the washing up very loudly with the radio on in the background…
