Hey(Rise of the Robots) for me. 8)

All great tracks though.

I'm sure Dreamtime has been done live.... I'm also sure that someone will confirm this or not.

Not as far as I know but may be wrong I've checked a bootleg page and this track has never been played in full.. The melody was dabbled with live the start of NICE AND SLEAZY circa 1986, also the start of ENOUGH TIME the bass riff was played at the beginning of CURFEW circa 1978 but never played in full

Woulda loved to have heard MKI do Too Precious. Jet going for it on the percussion whilst Hugh wigs out - bliss !

I've gone for "Hey" - I think it would work great into the live set with the band as it is at the moment.

However, in terms of hearing Hugh, I'd chose "Laughing".

Wasn't this on the set list for the la louviere gig in 86 but wasn't played and didn't someone on hear say that they heard it being soundchecked once.

I was at the second Apollo gig at that time (on the 28th) and they definitely didn't play Robots. I think they did everything else from the White Side of B & W. I would expect the set would have been the same for both those gigs. I would love to see definitive sets list from those 2 gigs though - the sets given on the 'Glasgow Apollo' website are absolute bollocks!
