I attended this last night more out of curiosity than anything.
This gig was done to coincide with the premiere of the new film Awaydays which was last night.
The traffic on the M6 was a nightmare. Took 2 hours to get from Knutsford services.
I started out from Tamworth @ 3.30pm arrived @ 7.15pm.
Spent 2 hours supping guiness, cappuccino & pints of orange juice.
Eventually we were allowed in at 9 to watch the support band - Sex Education. Very 'Vox influenced on some tracks.
They were Electro Rock/New wave & were excellent:-
Well worth a listen:- http://www.myspace.com/sexeducationband
Family Foxx arrived around 10ish but Karborn had a few technical problems with his laptop so the start was delayed to after 10:30pm
(I did offer my IT services;)
Foxx,Da Silva & Karborn were all on stage in front of a Pioneer mixing Desk.John Foxx was doing the mixing using what looked like a Wii controller.
The set started with Gary Numan's AFE.Once of the other tracks I recognised was Joy Division.
The visuals were a mash up of Awaydays clips. See video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EY8JFq8DH6k
Because the show was running late I had to leave at 11pm because of work the next morning & had to drive back to Tamworth so I only saw half the show.
Wish I could have stayed longer.
Was nice to meet Andy (Your Shadow) for the first time & also Mr Rob Harris again (who is still recovering from his Ultravox tour)
With hindsight I should have taken today off & driven up after work. Could have easily made it for 9pm despite the traffic.
