Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this was James’s first live gig in nearly two years, and acted as a warm-up gig for the delayed summer festival season.
They finish on a darker than normal, broody, moody Sound, notable for an extended outro that builds in pace, some trumpet sounds you wouldn’t believe were trumpet if you weren’t witnessing Andy channeling them through his box of distortion tricks as the song winds on its dozen-minute plus sonic journey.

There is no greater feeling than watching the greatest band in your world and we should never forget that and let anyone take it away from us.
