L’Escapade, Hénin-Beaumont, France, 26 October 2004
Cells – I Can Walk – Conversation – Beautiful Thing – Biro – Glowing Logos – Jack The Ripper – New Song – Body – Orchestra – Liquefy – Jesus Says – Not Scared – Devil

I arrived at the venue at 1:30. The weather being sunny, I stayed outside a while and watched Chris & Trevor play football and then Chris, Matt & Tony (the bus driver) shoot at each other with toy guns. When Dan walked past from the bus to the venue for a shower, I shot him with Matt’s toy gun! Bang, Dan! Ha ha ha!
Soundcheck from 2:30 to 4:
Stop Breakin’ Down Blues (a Robert Johnson song)
I Can Walk (same melody but completely different singing & lyrics – Dan seems to enjoy making lyrics up as he is singing)
They also rehearsed 3 new songs « new song #1 », « new song # 2 » and « Get Down » which, I think, sounds very good live.
This was followed with a talk with Dan (we had a few things to talk about), my interviewing Bernard, dinner at a “bistrot” in the town center and the gig of course.  

L’Escapade, capacity: 500 people (sold out)
Again, it was excellent. My highlights: Dan’s smile throughout the show, the new song with Dan on his beautiful brand new Fender Stratocaster, the audience’s response and my students’ very positive comments after the show.
