360 101, plus support, Swindon The George, Friday 3 October 1997
Last gig before the imminent arrival of son Evan, so I managed to squeeze this one in as it was local! Got there as the support, 101 drummer Alan's "other" band, were kicking up a din.
Tim's band 101, however, are maturing with each set; this one, in front of hardy local punters, was great from the off, but took awhile to ignite the crowd to respond and dance. Nevertheless, their rocky guitar dynamics and self-deprecating attitude won the cynical bunch over in the end, as did their blazing cover of The Wannadies' "Hit" and excellent set closer "Like Your Lycra", both of which had me dervish dancing in the middle of the pub!
