Fields of the Nephilim So to the main event, Fields of the Nephilim, The Nephilim, The Neff, Carl McCoy. I first saw them back in 1987 in some tiny polytechnic, and came out covered in flour, ringing ears but with complete love. They rarely tour these days, no, correction, they never tour and rarely play, in England we’re lucky to get two of three gigs a year and I had high hopes tonight. I wasn’t disappointed.

A raft of top #10 hits and a #1 album - Kula Shaker an in town tonight - to celebrate those twenty years ago when that album 'K' was riding high.

James I was particularly looking forward to this one. James have always been a band I’ve admired but one I’ve never really got to know better. The last time I saw them Adamski was Number One which shows just how lax I’ve been and it was high time I found out how the band had matured. (More than me I was to find out).

Selling his own brand of Hendo’s (a local delicacy), it was clear that Richard Hawley was at home.
