Nuff said. Never seen them live and I don't want to. A friend of mine saw the recent thing with the French Canadian stand-in and she thought it was pretty dire and all a bit pointless really.

Shame you've never seen them. 75 - 78 they were fantastic. The second half (ie the night time portion) of the QPR show from 76 is well worth seeing if you want a flavour of their thing at that time. Great / mad stage set and some very intense playing. It's really innocent in many ways and the fact that nothing is sequenced or being done to a click is really refreshing. It never came out on DVD AFAIK but I am sure some kind fan is offering it for free download somewhere.

I was too young and I would only want to have heard them in their classic period when you did. Daft as it is, I'm not the greatest fan of live albums ( although a select few are something else ) is Yessongs worth checking out, quality wise ?
