Phil Manzanera/801: 801 Live (Island)****

Vivien Goldman, Sounds, 30 October 1976

THURSDAY September 2, 1976. British Left-Fielders' night out at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London. It was 801's second and last gig (the other was Reading Festival). Phil Manzanera put together the six musicians, some of them from his former band Quiet Sun, specially for those two dates. Just for kicks.

Total word count of piece: 353
