Great night. More Tim songs than in Cambridge, and the first time I have heard Luckiest Man or Sunset Swim live. Plus we got Poor Boy - and Charlie! Somebody had misplaced Tim's star-shaped tambourine tonight (probably Minnie Driver - she was using one like it, probably the same one). Tim looked well miffed when he couldn't find it during Won't Give In, so vented his frustration on the keyboard instead of leaping about. He got his moment though, Charlie was simply awesome.
Disembodied Voices really stood out too, with the lights out on stage, I just had to sit quite still and listen. Paul Stacey played the mandolin part on acoustic guitar, fingers right up by the sound hole.
Homesick followed by There Goes God was a great pairing, although Homesick always reminds me of Whispers and Moans, and to have followed with that would have been just perfect . I noticed Neil twiddling the knobs on the keyboard during Homesick, changing the sound from the usual piano.
At one point Paul and Neil had some kind of pretend (I think!) fight, attempting to kick each other (maybe there's a little guitar-war going on) but Neil always managed to get back to his mic in time to sing! They hugged each other at the end though.
