Up early...



...and almost first at breakfast - too early in fact for the omelette lady...


Packed and set...


We left the hotel at 8:15 and drove up to the airport...






...arriving in good time for our flight home...









Once again, no window seat, so pics snatched as and when...





Back in Edinburgh around 1:45 local time...


...and the beast was on a couple of buses home...


...to prep for this evening...


Into town earlier than required in order to secure a lamp for the music stand...

To the venue around 6:15...


...for the sound check...




Opening proceedings were Scott Renton and his band the Heartbreak Diet, with a nice set of originals and covers...




...before "Cloudland Blue Quartet featuring the Capital Models" took to the stage around 9:15 to celebrate 40 years of the CMs, with a set of covers by Lou Reed, the Velvets, Eno, Bowie, Ferry, Roxy Music and Simon & Garfunkel...

The scene from the stage...



Pics of our performance...

From the Exec Producer and Lynn's POV...




...from Ian Sclater...



...and nice clear ones from Stu's chum...





























Quasi punk quartet, Kurtz, were last on with a superb energetic set of mostly covers by the likes of Iggy, Stooges, Sonic Youth, Damned and Dead Kennedys...


Turned out drummer Johnny knew people in both the other bands - small world...

Home just after midnight after a long but very enjoyable day...

These glasses though, used on the night, are away the trip...


Meanwhile, Anne's picture has progressed in my absence...


That's it...

Highlight of the Day : Performing...

PS Stu's chum also made this video of our last song...
