All three wizards are joined by gig-going pal Texas Paul as they take in a night of furious and frenzied music and Ted Chippington. A night that they were hoping would also include new sensations, Faerground Accidents, but unfortunately they weren’t able to make it. Luckily, they were still in for a treat.


Having negotiated the labyrinthine walkways of the Manchester’s Northern Quarter to find the exclusive venue, this is what befell our intrepid reviewers. Have a listen to their wise words (and factual errors) and discussions of what colour lamé was being worn right here or there:

The setlist


In the cold light of day, it’s clear that the set was made up of the hit singles that shoulda been from the last two LPs, plus a couple of new songs: Booze & Broads & Beauty and I Am Shame. Can we expect another LP hot on the heels of this year’s? Let’s hope so.
