Judy, Judy, Judy.

Jane and I went to see Judy Tzuke at the Southport Arts Centre last night. We met up with Paul Steele, who I haven't seen for quite some time, though we have spoken on the 'phone.

The current band has two guitars, bass, drums and keyboards, along with Mia Silverman and Bailey Tzuke on backing vocals. I don't think this line-up is as tight as previous ones, though Dave Goode is as fabulous as ever. As Paul pointed out, and I think Jane felt, they were also a lot louder than on previous occasions. To be honest, I think a better term would have been noisier. This may be due to them not being as tight; who knows? Still, I'll glad we went. I haven't seen her since 1998 when I went to Ronnie Scott's in Birmingham with Tim, Paul & Helen.

Jane and I have also decided that we'll take a day out in Southport when the weather improves. Maybe we'll stay overnight.
