Flyer for the gig clearly knocked up without a record company's design department budget - just take a look at the logo!)
Tickets I recall were quite hard to come by, but luckily, being in Uxbridge at the time, I was able to skip a couple of lectures and make my way down to the relatively nearby Windsor to pick up a couple of tickets.
It was with a great deal of trepidation that I and, I am sure everyone else there on the night, waited for the band to come on. In the event, they won the day, at that time the two new members were not quite as flamboyant in their roles as they were to be in later years. A sympathetic treatment of the back catalogue with the opportunity to see the band in such close quarters, once again without the brass cavalry, was what I suspect I enjoyed most about that night.
The Old Guard
The Old, Trout Windsor 25th February 1991
Looking through some old cuttings recently, I came across a rreview writted by a mate of mine, for another mate's fanzine. Quite a positive review I think.
It's not perfect quality, but is worth hearing from the point of view of listening to a band embarking on a completely new phase of what had already been a long career.
I would suggest that you listen to this whilst reading the article on the official site, here.
