Set list wise things were rather predictable (James also threw Raindrops in to the acoustic section from the published set list), but it was thoroughly enjoyable throughout.

James mentioned as they left the stage about seeing us again at Easter, so presumably new album and tour in the new year....
I hope it does mean new stuff n gigs,cant wait.x

I love that James tours the world and holidays in Yorkshire and North Wales. On the Journal For Plague Lovers tour at Llandudno James threw a faux-strop about turning 40, and said he'd come up to Llandudno for a holiday then.
Ilkley, Llandudno. I feel like he's following me around.
Sure it should be the other way round

I wondered round the moors at Haworth a week or so back. No I'm not following you around. Did I see James? No but the heather's out in full purple. Best time of the year to go up on the wiley windy moors
"There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more," - Byron

'I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.' (from Sea Fever - John Masefield)

"Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all" - Emily Dickinson

Bridge and No Surface sounded sublime. Nice to see Masses get the acoustic treatment.

Agreed James full of energy Nicky subdued.

Nice setting and a 90 minute set good for festival.
Think that mght have been with with some old school mates!
