Subject: pat & max
Mike Kelly and myself made it to the gig. We missed both the support,
so no comment there. The band looked very smart - apparently because
Pat has to dress up when he plays drums for the Strange Attractors!
Mostly new stuff from Illuminate. Opened with Rosemary Davis (one of
my favourites). Played Cute Submarines, When Eno Sings amongst others
- a pen would have come in handy :-)
Overall they were pretty hot - the best I have seem them, but they
only played for an hour which was a bit disappointing. Crowd was
biggish, enthausiastic and there was even dancing!
