A gig without photos! In this case because I was acting as one of the interval-and-after DJs, along with The Dandy Demondaz.

The evening's acts were Redhead (a classic guitar-rock four-piece), The Wimmin's Institute (perky pop-punk feminist four-piece playing wry wittiness such as their latest 'Nandos', with added trumpet), and the headliners, playing another of their justly renowned anniversary gigs, The Memepunks.

(Normally, when DJing for a band who play covers, I like to check in advance what they'll play, to ensure that I don't end up playing half their set before they go on stage. When you do that for The Memepunks, you end up with a list of about twenty-five tracks for a ten-song set - considerably more if one of those songs is Slimelight 2000.)
