i had never really heard much of mic chrisptopher (other than heyday), but i went along to the gig and it was fantastically excellent.
great lineup, great stories about mic, even from his father. a truly great night.
i've just one question for anyone that was there
one of the opening songs was sang by someone (I think he said his name was philip walsh.... but not sure) tall chap with glasses. he was one of the first 3/4 songs and possibly called tulip.
if anyone knows if they could let me know.
I wasn't at gig but saw this setlist on boards.ie. Sounds like a great night. Can you maybe spot what you were looking for from it? Philip Marshall maybe?
