Venue: The Racehorse
Where: Northampton England
When: Sunday, Friday 26th, 2005

Notes

Free admission. Wilson onstage at 10:00pm sharp. Drier than glastonbury.

Headstone Says..

No boats required! We said it would be drier than Glastonbury, didn't we? Another super night at the Racehorse for Wilson. Our projector made its live debut, running kung-fu movies and footage of...uh...Wilson over the band and the PA from Phoenix Soundworks performed admirably under severe pressure. The Importers got the show under way with a bright and tuneful set of original pirate material that certainly revealed their fondness for New Order. It was only their second ever show, but despite the occasional wobbly moment where band and backing track didn't quite see eye-to-eye, they acquitted themselves well. We shall surely be seeing more of them.

We've really taken to starting the set with Dark Agenda. It's just the right pace for getting us started, makes us feel all confident and in control of things. And so it went: MC Bot was in fine voice and the crowd was warm and friendly. Well, we were all warm, let's face it, except for Steve Bez, who had simply gone out and bought himself the biggest electric fan that he could find. Stevie G broke his bigfoot wah-wah pedal and I found myself obliged to finish Battle Time on an acoustic after breaking a string on my Burns. Apart from that, sweet as you like. So thanks to Phoenix Soundworks, Ash and John at the Racehorse, The Importers and everybody who came along.

That set list in full: Dark Agenda - Quality People - No Winners - Police Chief - Play It All Night Long - Hippy Shit - Secret Government - Every Saturday Night - Critters - Istanbul Connection - Buffalo Sniper - Battle Time Now.
