Fibbers-York- September 2000

This track brings a lot of memories. We had picked up John at the train station in York and spent the day doing radio interviews and wandering around York. John had a gig that night at a pub called Fibbers. It was possibly the hottest place I’ve ever been in where I was not allowed to disrobe. After the show John said that the shellac was bubbling up on his guitar.

I was doing video as well as audio and I think I may have lost 5 pounds during the gig despite numerous pints of beer.

John was touring to support Wires From the Bunker but he loved to do a few covers. This song, written by Billy Edd Wheeler, was one of his favorites.
