Didn't tape it, but Pat and his underrehearsed (so he claimed in the bar)
band played a pretty good show. It was the first time I'd seen him playing
with a band, and, in contrast to the Mean Fiddler gig, it was very loud and
quite energetic. Pat managed to break 3 guitar strings, two going
simultaneously during She's on Drugs.

A very rough set list:

She's a Yo-Yo
Mr Odd
Sister Death
Shirley Maclaine
She's on Drugs
President Chang
Caroline Wheeler (What an excellent song live)

And probably some others I forgot.
They didn't come on till about 11pm though, which was a bit odd.

Listening to the Condition Blue stuff live, I don't know what we've been
moaning on about. It's fine, fine music.

I passed on my May 15th Mean Fiddler tape to Pat, which he seemed to
appreciate, and shared reminiscences of how fucking cool the Velvets had
been at Wembley.

Oh well, I guess that's it for another 3 years (approx the last time Pat
played in London with a band).
