Memories on this night

"I remember it being a really good gig , in common with all the ones we did at The Marquee, and we had a lot of record companies turning up at that point so there was quite a buzz around. As far as I can remember the relationship with everyone was good. We had recently done a Radio One Session that was broadcast about a week before and created a real sense of excitement and so it felt as though something was really beginning to roll and recognition was just around the corner. We were also gearing up for a tour of Scotland."
