The Enmore show was amazing. Despite being surrounded by screaming queens, delirious debutantes, crazy clappers, iPhone auteurs and grumpy old men, I enjoyed the show more than any gig in some time. We were one. In our many disguises we were all there to share. There wasn't a dry eye in the house. Maybe we were so grateful to survive the Mayan calendar "end of the world" predictions scheduled to occur during the show. Afterwards the Enmore overflowed with joyful expectation. What do we do next? Where shall we go? Sly Fox? OK! Then I lost my friends and walked home singing a version of Every Day Is Like Sunday to myself.

I was trapped behind a big guy with big lungs and big clapping hands in a standing-only audience. Unable to change position until the encore, I didn't know what to expect from my recording. Next day I was relieved to discover he hadn't ruined it. Anyway, even if I had been able to move, it would've been pointless to search for a quiet place - everyone everywhere was loudly expressing their feelings. The entire crowd was in raptures. It's there on this recording but not in an overbearing way - it captures something of the live event as it was. If in doubt, download a sample.
