A stunningly good gig on Sunday night. The Adrian Belew Power Trio in Islington were a joy from the first note to the last, literally. Adrian Belew played notes on his guitar as if they were being ripped form him. Tobias Ralph on drums made me wonder why he isn't better know (and this was only his second gig with the band). Julie Slick (pictured) was a revelation. Full of energy, skill and swagger but completely lacking in arrogance, she was a treat to watch and listen to.

After it was over and the band announced they had no more material someone in the crowd shouted out, "play it all again!" If they had, I would have stayed to listen.
