They played most of the eternal, if not all of it.
But also tom violence, catholic block, stereo sanctity, the sprawl, cross the breeze, and a few others
Then they ended on Death Valley 69.
Tom Violence was fucking amazing

Great show, wish I was going to London tonight now as well.

They fucked up a couple of times during the set though, 'Catholic Block' took three attempts to get right and Thurston missed some lines from one of the songs from Eternal. But still overall a good set. Over an hour and a half on stage which is the longest that I've seen them play as well.

Good support from The Pop Group as well - went down well.

I believe the setlist from Manchester will be pretty much the same in London.

There were a couple of t-shirt designs behind the offical stall. Don't remember seeing any posters. The usual 'Goo' & 'Washing Machine' t's were being sold outside after the show by the hawkers.

Anyone have a spare ticket for tonight's show? We have one but desperately need another! Would be Eternal-y (geddit??!) grateful if you could call Spud 07717 803802

Just got back from Manchester... it was a great show, if a little rusty in places as has already been mentioned. Both Anti Orgasm and Antenna blew my mind and balls... definitely the best live versions that I've heard of those tunes... especially Antenna where Thurston and Lee exchanged some great moves that far surpasses the recorded version. Other highlights for me were Cross The Breeze and DV69 which are quite simply monumental live and never disappoint... I loved the outro w/Thurston swinging his lead to stunning aural effect.
Thurston dedicated a song to Ari Up but I can't remember which one. He also called The Pop Group "one of THE great British groups" and I must admit it was a little surreal for me to see them again after being lucky enough to catch them in the 70's supporting (and blowing offstage) Patti Smith.

Here is the full setlist:

No Way
Sacred Trickster
Calming The Snake
Tom Violence
Walkin' Blue
Leaky Lifeboat
Poison Arrow
Anti-Orgasm
Antenna
Catholic Block
Stereo Sanctity
What We Know
Massage The History
___________

The Sprawl
Cross The Breeze
___________
___________

White Kross
DV69
___________

Roll on tonight... I can't wait.

Greenlight I hope you made it !!!

A higher power tells me they are going to play The Diamond Sea for half an hour as a special encore for new year.
That higher power is wishful thinking.

Might pick up a tshhirt. I love those screen printed posters in the merch section. Would be nice if they had one for tonight. Even a standard Strange Days one.

OMG i'm getting pumped... Been waiting 15 years for this.

I do realise Diamond sea was never gonna happen past 96. That's the only problem with SY. Too much material. Never gonna hear everything you want to live. Especially as they always seem to stick to their latest record. That's pretty good too in my eyes.

Setlist for tonight:

Brother James
No Way
Sacred Trickster
Calming The Snake
Hey Joni
Anti-Orgasm
Poison Arrow
Schizophrenia
Antenna
What We Know
Massage The History
___________

The Sprawl
Cross The Breeze
___________
___________

Kool Thing
___________

Opening with Brother James around midnight with tinsel confetti falling from the ceiling was absolutely brilliant... I have never seen the New Year in in such a perfect way.
Also Kool Thing was a real celebratory and fun climax. Too fucked to write anymore now... but Shellac were also amazing.

Happy New Year !!!!!!
