Steve and Miquette still bangin out a groovy beat!Booked the ticket last minute after notification on Bandcamp and tried to get a couple of friends to come but one was at another gig locally and the other didn't respond! Their loss - they missed a fantastic night!
I last saw System 7 in the Dance Tent at Glastonbury early to mid 90's and even after all this time I was not at all disappointed - in fact I was extremely delighted and danced no-stop through the whole set (about 2 hours?). My back and legs were killing me walking home a couple of miles and the next day!
Miquette and Steve (ladies first!) reproduced a excellent combination of old and new System 7 and Mirror System tracks,most of which I have already in my collection or have heard online many times before. I was right at the front of the dance floor and loved every minute.
The sounds and lights were amazing and really kept the crowd excited and moving throughout.
The DJ set before and after the main gig was brilliant and set the mood well.
I stayed around after the duo left the stage to wind down a bit before leaving and was delighted to see Mr Hillage himself come back to the venue after a while. I took the opportunity to buy a CD that I did not have, introduced myself to Steve and got him to sign it. Thanks Steve - I should have bought you a drink - sorry! :)
Thanks to all for a great night and looking forward to the next time.
