Took the train to Coventry and stayed overnight with a friend attending Warwick University. Support band rubbish.
I was puzzled by the presence of Brix Smith onstage with The Fall; is that Mark E Smith's daughter? No, I subsequently discovered; it's his wife! The Fall previewed new material from forthcoming LP "Perverted By Language", particularly memorable being the slow, sinewy bassline-driven "Tempo House", and the in-your-face terrace chant of "Eat Y'Self Fitter". Great vibes from this laid back poet/singer/shouter Mark E Smith as usual!
