`Robyn Hitchcock and Heavy Friends' headlined Friday night at the
small-but-wonderful Clerkenwell Festival.

A tighter, shorter, more powerful version of the Naff Hits set - Funky
Town, Another Girl Another Planet, Love Don't Live Here Anymore, Come
Up And See Me (Make Me Smile), Dancing Queen, Sound and Vision
(medley) - with some amazing additions - Are Friends Electric/Tired of
Waiting, Lucifer Sam, Kingdom of Love.

Lucifer Sam just took off; guitars, horns, bass, drums, vocals, all so
powerful, so overwhelming that - despite the fact that a fair
proportion of the audience had no idea what the hell was happening -
it was the best received song of the whole evening. Kingdom of Love
was a close second. Followed by Come Up And See Me, then Funky Town.

Robyn was wearing an excellent shirt and singing incredibly well;
Kimberley's guitar was even better than last time; Morris was perfect,
without monitors; Terry Edwards was sporting three horns; Paul Noble
made everything happen.

And everyone was smiling, laughing, dancing, and generally very happy
indeed. Oh, and it was all free. Who could ask for anything more?
