Im still finding bits of confetti in my clothes and on my bedroom floor :)

I could not help jumping around like a loon and apologies for a guy I think I elbowed.

Managed a quick hi to MrLuckman to see what a great job he and mr foozling had done. was very proud.

Weirdest moment of the night was when we all clapped for an encoure of an imaginary band and they did ! Timed to perfection !

Oh and being called the young ones (me and my girl) when im 40 made my evening :)

Sounds like you all had a blast. Hopefully it will have raised a fair bit of cash for our man Timmy.

Well... Cardiacs disco was a triumph! To be honest, before Saturday night I wasn’t sure how it would work – would it be like a club night or more like a gig? In the end it was something new, a glorious half-club/half-gig hybrid! Here’s my mini-review texted afterwards from the train home…

“Great ‘gig-like’ night, proper volume and lights, big flower backdrop and a room full of dancing, singing, smiling girls and boys, all sharing hugs and party balloons while being showered in blasts of confetti!”

I’m still grinning now!

A fantastic night. Far better than my expectations, and my girlfriends too. A great way to hook her into the pond!

Apart from all the tracks themselves it was all the bits of Tim talking on stage and all the random live inbetween music bits from live shows that really made it that extra special

We were stationed on the left (facing the stage) fairly near the 'stage' near the wall with trips around and about.

if this quick time clip works I`m in the hat....Shucks it won't let me paste it in.

Where were you?

There was an old guy next to us in a top hat thingy which i have seen in other videos. Would love to see yours too. maybe you can link it from you tube or something.

That was my mate Roger with the top-hat. I was with him a lot of the night, in-between cig breaks and dancing like a loon :)
And if she only had stopped making that hissing noise . . .

What a fantastic evening and the sound reproduction was AWESOME!( Hats off to Foozling and Luckman who made it sound like a proper gig, fills an all! This cannot be allowed to be a one off, I buzzed so much (and wept for times so lovingly passed until the jaigermeisters kicked in!) Also a big thanks to Sel ( leader of the legendary band Amplifier who I love!) who was amiable and so down to earth.!!

It was a home of musical splendour!!

Dog-Like Sparky's great. I wish i'd been there now. That's BigShipIron (0:30) innit...?
