UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL
One thing I can say about these two nights @ The Bijou, Is MAGICAL. The intimacy of this venue as well as a smokin gig this should have atleast a 4 star rating. This show as I recall as yesterday no one was sittting, and for us progs, hopping was in order(yes this night it was called dancing). The take off happens with Piano Boy when Robert goes off on what I remember as hypnotic guitar riffs that takes you to a place that Talking Heads couldnt do in their wildest dreams. This band was amazing and Sarah Lee was out of this world. That night she sounded like the best bassist in the world. And now back to the venue, I cant remember any place on the planet that was more intimate. It no longer exists, and Peter Hammill said in one of his Sofa sound letters that this was one of the favorite places he played in. Again the venue and the energy of the band give it 4 stars.
