104 NORTH OF CORNWALLIS, Supp. Jim Jiminee, London Marquee, Wednesday 1 June 1988

Half of the population of Jim Jiminee's hometown of Fleet seemed to be at the Marquee for their jumping, good-time set! I however took the train up specifically to see North Of Cornwallis; chatted to the guys backstage before they played an excellent set, probably the best I've seen them play (the best they've done, said guitarist Mark Pate afterwards), full of their excellent, intelligent indie pop, with reworked opener "Billy Liar" my standout track. Hopefully Go Discs boss Andy McDonald, also present, was sufficiently impressed to offer them a recording contract! (He didn't! Bah!)
