I doubt they only played album tracks.  The London gigs certainly featured some of the usual suspects - Requiem, The Wait, Wardance, Night Time, Kings and Queens, etc.

The version of Requiem was amazing, really hard and fast.  One of my favourite live versions.

Not long after, I was given a bootleg of KJ live at the CND rally in 1980.  It features what became another of my favourite live versions of Requiem - but this one is punishingly slow.

You can watch all 5 tracks of the CND rally here - very raw and powerful.  Brutal guitar on Pssyche!

Must have been quite a short show. Doubt they played 'A Southern Sky'
or the bonus tracks either so, what's that, six songs? A red hot half
an hour.
