Cool - the brixton gig ie the one from their live vid/album "Live at Brixton Academy" ? If so then DAMN!! Seeing great bands that early in their careers is just awesome.
Fave songs? well Ashes to Ashes (what a chorus!) stripsearch and midlife crisis are all faves along with Caffeine, King for a day, Cukoo for Caca, Last to know, Gentle art of making enemies, War pigs (Ozzy should be proud) Woodpecker from Mars and .. bleh theyre all good.
