So is this the last performance by Swarb as a "member" of the band rather than as a special guest, equally with Bruce?

Yes, we think so.

Update:  Scrub that, maybe...somebody has just written on FB that they saw the same lineup (minus RT) at Heusden festival in Belgium the following weekend.

The Shadows shtick was hilarious. And a great version of Sloth. Couple of bits missing, including RT's intro, but that's a minor niggle. Really enjoyed it!

Yes, it was great. Thanks Greg and David for making that available.

RT seemed to be modelling himself on Inspector Clouseau, which was an interesting fashion choice.  As was Simon's jumper, but it was the mid-80s!

None of this as unforgivable as Peggy's headless bass. Loathe those things. They're just wrong.

But Peggy's good vibes are so positive that I can forgive him this and more.

The oh-so 80's Riverhead Unicorn headless bass.
Sounds pretty good ; mind you, I've never heard Peggy sound bad, whatever instrument's in his hands.
He also used it extensively with Tull, and the 1st tune of "Instrumental Medley '85" from "Gladys' Leap" (the drums 'n' bass duet between Peggy & DM) is named "The Riverhead" after said instrument.

I can understand those basses from an ergonomic point of view - given that a Fender Jazz Bass headstock will break your toes if you let go of the neck. They're not aesthetically that pleasing though are they?

What really bothers me is where do you put your hand when you're playing on the first or second fret? Your hand would be sliding off the end. Horrible!

That reminds me of a rather rude joke...

But, back to the video - just loving it - a huge thanks to Davidmjs and everyone involved in getting it out there/here!

Chug-a-lug, to use a Peggy quote from those far-off days!

Completely undeserved...I was but a conduit.  Glad it's being enjoyed though  Smiley
