So what’s going on with the live set then, Brian?


A fair question and if I was Brian then I could answer, but since he’s not here then I’ll say that the current live set features stuff from the 80s days when Doug and I were in French lessons and features stuff off both Homework and Reel Music, the French Lessons albums. There are songs from the JunkMale CD, Safe as House’s, Me and the Moon, Fallin Down  and Wonderland, there are new songs Silver strings, The Smile, Hearts on Fire and others. Some covers, older stuff, Small Faces, Kinks, Pink Floyd, Gallagher and Lyle, Chris Farlowe, Joe Jackson, Alana Miles, old but we like it and yes you’ve spotted it, nothing from the hit parade.
