We were lucky, the train we had planned to take was actually running and what's more it was actually on time!
|Here comes the man with the beer!|
Italy's Unreal City were a real treat, heavily keyboard led numbers (Just how influenced by the late great Keith Emmerson is anyone's guess), excellent musicianship all round with good strong vocals, albeit in Italian but what the heck, the music was terrific as is the band's current album 'Frammenti Noturni'.
A Gift of a Saturday in June
It was another Saturday, a Saturday in June
a special trip to the big city, it couldn't come around too soon
and there indeed we were despite the chaos on the trains
remarkably ours turned up on time so we were London bound again
This time it was just the two of us, yes just Chris and I
so we made our way to the Euston Tap to drink and watch the world go by
there were lads dressed as lasses, a New Romantic too
vagrants, toffs & tourists, all went passing through
girls wearing next to nothing in the hot summer sun
it was busy bustling noisy but lots and lots of fun
The afternoon passed so quickly as these days so often do
so we hightailed it off to Tufnell Park to catch a band or two
well actually it was three!
Our own Roger Marsh was also there as a chaperon to the bands
he introduced us to Camilla from Unreal City
which was really rather grand
and whilst waiting in the queue outside
a security van beeped at us and the driver waved our way
it was none other than the lovely Alice Woods
that really made our day!
Unreal City from Italy were very good indeed
Kaprekar's Constant were outstanding, what else could we need?
Why only Mike Morton & The Gift who were so on fire that night
three different bands and all amazing, well that turned out just right
We even managed to get a train home!
So, it's goodbye (For now) from me, and it's goodbye from them:-
|The triumphant end of a gift of a gig!|
