"This is what we call an interaction with hazard” says Fripp as Barry Andrews’ crumar organ gives up the ghost and has to be resuscitated by the members of the Leagues road crew. During the impromptu pit-stop, we learn during the course of Fripp’s announcement that the bittersweet ballad which had been a feature of the band’s set list is actually called Prelude - a name Crim-watchers will instantly recognise. He also clues us in on how another song in the band’s repertoire came to be titled “A lady in Amsterdam came up to me and said ‘Freep, Freep, you are a major man.’ So we thought we’d call this Minor Man.” Perhaps as a result of equipment problems or some other external influence, this is a curiously staid performance by the band. Whilst being perfectly serviceable and containing several toe-tapping moments, the gig never quite catches fire in the way that we know they can. Completing their last UK date of their inaugural tour, the League’s next stop would be North America.
