Hue and Cry at the Queen’s Hall, Edinburgh, 21 October 2012

Marvellous support by Little Fire (Jamie McGeechan), who has a voice like a warm woollen scarf on a cold winter’s day. Check out his video of “You Mean Something To Me” on YouTube. (No, not the Paul Weller song. That’s “You Do Something To Me.”)

Then it was time for funk:

  1. Duty to the Debtor
  2. Fireball
  3. Goodbye to Me
  4. Darkness Falls
  5. Fail You Better
  6. History City
  7. Hand and Heart
  8. Looking for Linda
  9. Remote
  10. Summer Head Daze
  11. She Makes a Sound
  12. Irreversible Situation
  13. Labour of Love
  14. Little Man
  15. Headin’ for a Fall
  16. Strength to Strength


  1. Mother Glasgow (Embra version!)
  2. Carlos Takes the Fall

Lovely set, and I had a great time. I’d love to see them in a venue without seats, though. With this kind of music I want to be bouncing up and down in a crowd in front of the stage.
