I was a bit reluctant to torrent this gig as the sound is a bit raw. The Academy is a small Victorian ballroom with a high roof, very similar to the old Camden Palace in London (now Koko I think). My taping position was on an open staircase just above the mixing desk, so my recorder had an uninterrupted shot at the PA from over the audiences heads. And it was VERY loud. Anyway, after encouragement to make it available from MARTINBLUBOY and reassessing the tape I realised it's not too bad just a bit shrill, you may need to turn the treble down.

It's a very lively performance by the band who seem to be having trouble with some of the audience gobbing at them! The room was packed with all the local lowlifes.
