The tidy and impressive support set by John Cunningham, the latter half in tandem with the DLM half of the beloved Pugwash, provided the perfect springboard for the evening as we were treated to songs from his latest album "Happy Go Unlucky" in a suitably intimate environment.

Thomas Walsh and the evening was filled with his effervescent enthusiasm for all things Idle Race, The Move, Jeff Lynne, Roy Wood and ELO as he paid due homage to two of his Idle Race heroes Dave Pritchard and Roger 'Ollie' Spencer, who were in the audience.

I have had the great pleasure this year of at last seeing Pugwash in the flesh as well as attending two excellent Duckworth Lewis Method gigs. My admiration of Neil Hannon and The Divine Comedy continues to grow as does my regard for Thomas Walsh, Tosh Flood and Pugwash.
