Perth was a truly sublime gig. Edwyn was in great voice and very good humour and had excellent support from Carwyn and Andy on acoustic guitars. I've been a fan since the early days of Orange Juice, but hearing the songs played by a stripped back band really highlighted the greatness of the songs that Edwyn has written and continues to write. It really was music to stir the soul, and I have to admit to shedding a tear or two when they opened with "Falling and Laughing". The band received deservedly rapturous applause at the end, and after the encore I thought Edwyn was never going to leave the stage, but just stand there bowing all night! A great way to spend Sunday evening.
Hopefully it won't be too long before a return visit to these parts.
