The Jazz Butcher Acoustic Conspiracy was:
Pat Fish - guitar and vocals
Dave Henderson - guitar
Dooj - bass and "vocals"
Gabriel Turner (age 20) - drums ("we don't allow him many yet" - Pat Fish)

In Pat's words, they had been together theoretically for a week, but in
practice, since lunchtime.

They played:
Rosemary Davis
Man with the head of an ass (or whatever that's called)
Monkeyface (?)
Mr Odd
Sister Death ("bring a packed lunch")
She's on Drugs
Purple Rain (fragment)
Soul Happy Hour
Take the Skinheads Bowling
Road Runner

or something like that...

Incidental question: has the Jazz Butcher ever played a set which did not
include Mr Odd?

So anyway, it was good. I love the venue, and Pat seemed to be really
comfortable there too. As usual, paying customers numbered about three. Pat
brought a fairly hefty entourage down from Northampton, and the support
acts had plenty of friends along for moral support too.

The new look conspiracy was in experimental mode, and was less frenetic
than the band I saw at The Powerhaus, which is probably no bad thing.

But no, I didn't have a recorder on me. :-(
