Frontman Charlie Waller was in a relaxed mood throughout the gig, and responded jokingly to heavily-accented shouts from audience members about The Rumble Strips‘ south west roots – they hail from Tavistock in Devon.

The Rumble Strips played:

‘Not The Only Person’
‘Welcome To The Walk Alone’
‘No Soul’
‘Running On Empty’
‘Girls And Boys In Love’
