* According to Bruce, "It was a good and interesting gig - First Vin went on strike before the load-in (he wanted to go home instead). Keir brought the wrong computer. So we could only perform 4 songs from that A Paean To Wilson. I tell you, when things go wrong it seems to inspire Reilly to superb heights - and we had a marimba intro to Otis and a very rare and great reading of Friends in Belgium. You probably know that this number really requires a separate guitar to a special tuning. Whilst me and Keir were banging about on the drums for Requiem, he was re-tuning off-stage to deliver the tune for the first time in about ten years. The Belgium Friends is probably my favourite of all time."
