Well for me, the BTATS gig I saw (Glasgow Barrowlands) was the worst until 
the Raven-replacement/band pissed debacle in Glasgow some two decades 
later. Half-full venue, performance that was just... weak, really. New 
songs, old songs, it just didn't have the power. Wasn't a fan of the album, 
which probably didn't help.

On the other hand, the Extremities gig (next time I saw them) was incredible!
