support from sophia & kling klang
from david gill:
what can i say, mogwai were amazing, highlights were songs 1 to 9. every song was perfect, 'fear satan' set the tone. i always think 'fear satan' sounds a little rushed live but last night it was perfect. 'cody' was probably the highlight, stuart's singing was louder than usual, he looks more confident and it showed. 'secret pint' was excellent too, much longer than the album version and much better. 'two rights..' has developed into a must play like 'helicon 1', which is for me the best song of all time by anyone and still brings tears to my eyes. 'jewish hymn' was beautiful, and it seemed to go on for about an hour, john was onstage for ages after everyone else had gone. so, all in all, a pretty average life affirming event from the greatest band of all time.
from stephen robinson:
first support was from local group kling-klang, odd lot, one apparently wanted to be rick wakeman, one in the early human league or at least ladytron and another trying a little too hard to look like he'd been given day release from a local mental hospital. the music was a less interesting add n to (x), enjoyable at the time, but rather forgettable.
