'Broken', 'Take the Long Way Round' and Go-Betweens cover version - what a great gig last night. Can't believe they played 'Broken' - I only recall it live twice before: at Underworld acoustic show in 2001 and Oran Mor acoustic show in 2008. Really wasn't expecting that, but it is one of my faves, so very very very very pleased :-).

Ruthie - so sorry I didn't contact you to meet up, but I have been ill for the past week and literally blasted into London and arrived at venue 20 mins before TFC came on and left as soon as finished. Well worth it though :-). From your pics, it actually looks like I was probably only 4 or 5 people behind you at similar angle to stage. Hope you enjoyed it too.

Hey no worries dude! I did have a little look out for you! Strangely I only saw one other person I knew that I didn't arrive with. Usually I see loads.

Wasn't it wonderful! And a perfectly quiet crowd during Broken and the end of My Uptight Life. I thought everyone was very well behaved! Some people might say TOO well behaved! But not me, I'm getting fragile in my old age lol.

Broken and Easy Come Easy Go were beautiful. I had no idea they were going to play them! What a lovely surprise!

It brought to mind Tom and others I knew back then that had attended that night but for one reason or another I'm no longer in contact with. (I wasn't there, I was hanging with the Cosmics who were playing that night in Dingwalls.. some of them speeched the promoters in to letting them in for a while and I heard all about it from them).. and I began imagining what Tom's reaction would be if he was there and his silly grin.. sounds really really silly I know but in the moment it was very moving! Also brought back how many years have passed, friends, lovers (one loved Broken and would play it incessantly), and what has happened in the years inbetween the two events.. jeez.. it got emotive as fcuk! Power of one song eh.. Really glad I had my own acoustic Broken experience.. Thanks :-)

Similar thing here - Pete Paphides played it earlier in the day when the chaps were on his show (see Soho radio thread) which led them to play it in the evening. :)
