The only acoustic stuff I can ever remember is when M & D did a couple of Everly Brothers songs, I'm wondering whether this is what you saw as I'm pretty sure they never performed Silks - although I stand to be corrected!
I think the gig was at Pompey Guildhall. Set started in total darkness with throbbing beat. Best Man entrance.
I have heard recordings of the Everly thing and pretty sure it wasn't that. Vague feeling that Malc was on third acoustic.
I can't be confident about this - it is a while ago!

The Slow Motion line up played 'Hard Way To Die', 'Day & Night' and very rarely 'You Don't Like Us'.



One of the very few memories I have of the '75 gigs, is some bloke near me screaming out for 'You Don't Like Us' after every song, and getting increasingly frustrated at the slower twiddly numbers.

I'll see if I can get someone to scan it.

That's great, Mr B - thanks.

In that case it sounds quite likely it was 'Silks'...


I think the gig was at Pompey Guildhall.


...but if by Pompey you mean Portsmouth, then the next issue is....I don't think they played Portsmouth on that tour. There was Plymouth Guildhall - the first date of the Rhinos line up - so maybe it was in the set initially but quickly dropped, which is why none of us seem to recall it...but then how sure are you of Portsmouth?


...and getting increasingly frustrated at the slower twiddly numbers.

Mmmm, slower twiddly numbers....

It was (if memory permits) a blue folded sheet of A4 paper with the Rhino and golf club thing on the front.

'twas ever so.

Don't recall the circumstances around how I got it

Me neither.
It contains a list of songs they intended playing on the Spring tour '74, namely:

Spunk Rock
Bananas
Romain
C'mon
Blown Away
Hardway to Live (sic)
Scotch Corner
Four Day Louise
Taking the Easy Way Out Again

So for the moment we have these songs never played live:
BITF: Don't go away, Never say nups to Nepalese.
SM: Grasshopper, Bedtime bone, Rainbow eyes, Rock and roll you out?, One more chance?.
RWaL: California silks and satins.
TWC: Love can find a way, Cartoon.

Don't think they were ever played...


RWaL: California silks and satins.

See earlier post...it might well have been played after all...pending whether Mr Rover got Plymouth and Portsmouth mixed up (they both have a Guildhall...)


Of the earlier stuff:

DYLIHN: All Good Clean Fun, Children
M: Country Girl

Perhaps another thread could be Greatest Non-Studio Album Songs Performed Live...I'd vote for 'Conscience'...

Yeah, I forgot to include the "?" after the name of the song...

It's curious to know Slow Motion LP has 8 songs and the band only played live 3 of them... (Hard way to die, You don't like us and Day and night)

Yes Pompey = Portsmouth. But as I say I'm unsure. Who was the support on that tour?

Ooops, it wasn't Badger. Although I've still noticed something. I'm just not quite sure what it is.  ???  ???  ???

Your right Martin, Hopefully images will be attached to this posting.
Remember seeing Man at the Top Rank in Cardiff in 1974 and recall them playing 'Four Day Louise' which was one of my favourite tracks at the time.
