“It was very tight technically, and with Matthew Lynch playing that guiding riff on lead guitar, I felt a weird sense of pride in the band that I was talking to for less than fifteen minutes beforehand. The rhythm section held the whole thing down very well throughout. Matthew Lynch proved to everyone in the room that he is one of the top (if not the most) underappreciated guitarists in Northern Ireland. It was a cracking way to end a very lively set.”
