This must have been the biggest Rats gig since Cork! The Rats were pretty good with the first 8 singles all performed as you would expect in a 90 minute set. However, every time there is a new song (TGB, The Whole Fcuking World, the eponymous song), it just kills the momentum along with too many long dawdling breaks in songs (the MOT4F break is handy for getting a beer).
Also this was my first weekender at Butlins and it was absolutely superb starting on Friday evening with From The Jam, followed by The Vapors, Tom Robinson Band (the highlight of the weekend), The Rats, The Beat (not!), Toyah (surprisingly better than expected) and The Blockheads. Also caught snatches of the introducing stage, but was too flaked out to catch the late set from UK Subs and the Sunday evening sets from The Skids and Hung Like Hanratty.
Shame its the last one for a while, though there is talk of it possibly returning in 2024.

Congratulations on your retirement ArrGee. I am going to be doing the same. Sounds like this was a good night. Did Garry play?
