Apparently this event was supposed to be held outside, yet the band found themselves unexpectedly performing inside eventually, since someone forgot to get a stage, as Ian points out at one point.
If you're a sucker for the Steady Diet Of Nothing album, like myself, then you are in for a treat, since the set list features no less than eight songs from that album, including a rare performance of Polish. The Repeater album is well represented as well, with a handful of powerhouse songs from the first two EPs thrown in for good measure to conclude the show with a bang.
In this regard, it is interesting to note a rather remarkable version of Glueman which builds and builds, but surprisingly does not erupt in the usual purging outburst, but rather dwindles till there is nothing left.
The band is in good spirits on this particular evening, and wittily makes use of the university setting as attendees start guessing what songs the band might play, calling out song titles. Guy and Ian advise them to break into little groups and submit their guesses in written form. As the guesswork continues, Brendan suggests playing a song in the meantime while the audience mulls it over.
More engaging interaction ensues later on, related to a whole range of subjects including the possible subversiveness of the song I Touch Myself by the Divinyls, body shame, Staten Island, Foggy Bottom, and the quality of shit. Ian even throws in a guitar solo!
The sound quality of this recording is basically very good, as mentioned, although I have to admit that the guitars are a bit low in the mix sometimes.
