We arrived at 7 to find the sound-check in mid-flow, so were banished to the garden with our drinks for a while. I’d not been in The Thunderbolt for a good 15 years or more, and it’s a fairly cramped venue. Annoyingly I kept finding myself stuck behind taller people, which is something of a rarity for me.
Joolz entertained us for 30 minutes or so with a few poems and endless banter, occasionally accompanied by Justin Sullivan on keyboard or guitar. Then after a short break Justin arrived on stage, joined after the first song by Dean. As always it was a superb set, only slightly spoiled by a few drunk twats in front of us who couldn’t keep quiet.
