Last evening was my first ever Fringe Festival performance - Fringe World Festival in Perth, Australia, The Wembley Hotel - and the first ever performance of my one hour 'Tribute to Kirsty' show. It was only a small audience, but amazingly enough they were nearly all Kirsty fans!!!
There was a positive cheer when I announced 'Chip Shop' and again for 'In These Shoes?' - I really had NOT expected audiences here in Oz to be singing along with some of the songs, it was brilliant!! ... See MoreSee Less
My cheeks ached from smiling so much. #weshouldhavebeenfriends. She was intoxicating. Camden and Shepherd’s Bush were the best for me 😀
Great show. She was very humble. Voice was just as you’d imagine. Pete Glenister on guitar was incredible, especially during “You Just Haven’t Earned It Yet Baby.”
I saw Kirsty once only, a small venue at Manchester Uni in summer 2000 the tour for tropical brainstorm. She was amazing just so 'normal' & happy told us we were all cheesy for wanting there's a guy works down the chip shop... she sang it anyway along with audience 😏so glad I got the chance to see her.
Thanks for referring to these songs too! I love them so much! Bet the audience for Guy Works Down the chip shop was Fantastic!
Sigh... well that didn't take long. Playing Kite now
Heard a bit of it on R4 this morning. Interesting. Still think Kirsty's version is better than the original, but have yet to hear the other covers!
Not a good idea to listen to this at work- very emotional so tissues needed. Very touching to hear how a song can mean soo much to people.
I think kirsty's version of days being heard on the radio first got me to listen to her! Got the kite album as a record from the library and it went from there!
Busy Life Written by Neil Innes Lyrics A busy life keeps a body busy With so many same old things to do So why not stop a while and take a good look around? Maybe you will find out something new to yo...
Oh wow! I haven’t heard that before! Thanks Terry!😊
I have never heard of this before!!
The YouTube upload has an audio glitch about 45 seconds in. I hereby offer an mp3 of my almost-fix of it! There's still a bit of sound-waver - ~35 sec. in on the mp3 - but I believe it still constitutes a proper upgrade. UNFORTUNATELY, the clowns who run Facebook don't allow such audio-file attachments in regular posts. If any of you are interested in a copy, Messenger me and I can pass it on in a reply. (Why FB allows mp3's on Messenger, but not on their usual pages . . . like I said - clowns.)

If you don’t wish to buy from amazon you can still help me out by sending a donation via Paypal, all donations most welcome, no matter how small!
You don’t get any additional site content, you just get to feel good about yourself :o) We would offer a smaller amount but it would just disappear in paypal fees.
