I only catch the final song by opening act John Egdell, but I enter to a completely silent room so the audience are either completely rapt or completely nonplussed. I think they are rapt. Second support E'spaniel are endearingly self deprecating. This is their first gig and they're apologising before a single note has been played. No need really, because they've written a very nice batch of songs. Their sound is startlingly similar to an early (just learning the ropes) New Order, but this is actually quite an assured performance for a debut and one that will no doubt blossom.
