MIke Peters & 21

Sunday night saw the Pieman and Georgio Dragonslayer head across the border for a Mike Peters acoustic gig at a new venue in Wrexham called the Catrin Finch Centre on the Glyndwr University site.

The evening was organised to coincide with a new album release of material Called "21" with 21 songs to be played chosen mainly by the audience from each of the phases and albums of Mike Peters career interspersed with questions and chat regarding said songs and times.

It was recorded live for Calon FM a local community radio station. The evening was excellent and the venue intimate. Lasting nearly three hours I think, I lost track after a while. The song choices, performances and chat were excellent.

Set List

The Toilets - Alarm Alarm
Seventeen – 68 Guns
Eponymous – The Stand
Declaration – Tell Me
Strength – Walk Forever by My Side
Eye of the Hurricane – Rain in the summertime
Electric Folklore – Rescue Me
Change – There are no Frontiers
Raw – Rockin’ in the Free World
Standards – Spirit of ‘76
Breathe – Breathe
Feel Free – Feel Free
Rise – Rise
Flesh and Blood – If I Ruled the World
Coloursound - I’m Alive
In The Poppy Fields – 45 RPM
Under Attack - Without a Fight
Counter Attack – Love Hope and Strength
Guerilla Tactics – The Sound of The Alarm Calling
21 – The Rock ‘n’ Roll Still Burns in Me
The Alarm 2010 – Economic Pressure

Another 21 songs could have been chosen and I think it could still have been just as good. It was an excellent evening without playing On Step Closer To Home, Marching On, Rivers To Cross, The Rock, Where Were You Hiding, Close, You are To Me, Statue of Liberty......etc etc.

Lot's of best wishes to Mike's wife Jules who is currently in an Isolation unit in a Liverpool Hospital. Get well soon.
