The gig featured tracks from Spooky Action (featured in the Prog, Louder than War and Guardian writers end of year charts - “the perfect confection for the later days of the 2010s” Record Collector 5*,), his solo EPs and Mansun’s Attack of the Grey Lanternand Little Kix. The entire gig has been mixed by Paul’s long time collaborator P Dub.

2.     Don’t You Wait, It Might Never Come

3.     No Ideas

4.     Feeling My Heart Run Slow

5.     Things People Want

6.     Disgusting

7.     Friends Make The Worst Enemies

8.     Grey House

9.     Who’s Wearing The Trousers

10. I Can Only Disappoint U

11. Wide Open Space

12. Don’t Poke The Bear

A single disc of the live album will be available from independent shops and a very limited signed 2 x 12” vinyl edition will be sold exclusively on Paul’s forthcoming UK tour dates.
