cracking gig last! Possibly the best I'd ever seen by The Fall and one of the best in The Tunnels by any band.

Cheers for putting this on!

I thought the band were tight as hell both nights, last night was better in terms of Mr Smith's performance, vocals were better and less fucking around with amps, etc. I found the crowd last night had an air of intimidation in certain areas which isn't usual for The Tunnels and made it slightly less enjoyable for me personally.

Supports -

Fluffy And The Rainbow Bunnies - Made me chuckle a few times, I'm sure they were just a 2 piece last time I saw them, thought they were quite good.

Miss The Occupier - 3rd time I've seen them, pretty good.

Uniform - Malcolm Middleton-lookalike fronted band who from the off seemed a little obvious in their debt to Joy Division and then lo and behold covered 'Shadowplay'. Another song directly lifted lines from Bowie's 'Let's Dance'. Played well but could do with finding their own sound rather than be so obviously borrowing from JD, heard at least 3 folk around me echoing my thoughts.

Bill Ely And The Catnips - My favourite support for the 2 nights, short catchy songs well played, simple and fun. Never played Beetle Drive tho, damn.

fall audience

the audience cosisted of mainly 40 year old punk rockers like myself hen beverly , pete thompson ,jez miller , sid ozalid .

but there was a few minkers down the front shouting "aberdeen".

Only made it down to the Thursday night gig, but very much glad I did. Even with my limited knowledge of the Fall i thought the whole experiance was brilliant.

wednesday night was good for me like, was not really expecting much bar a lot of noise and amp twiddling- he's got a really good band there though really worth watching without mr smith. i thoroughly dug the set though even though i only recognised "pacifying joint".....

hope they come back up here anyway- much better than some of the horror stories a had heard and kind of expected. Mark e smith fair took a shine to the center security gadgey- i wonder if they went out disco dancing to espionage together later on....
