A quick break as the stage is set up for Pseudo Echo and finally they burst onto the stage and straight into Stranger in Me from their Autumnal Park album followed by In Their Time and then Dancing Until Midnight. Don't Go from their second album got the crowd up and dancing with A Beat for You and Walkaway following soon after. I Will Be You and then Living in a Dream from the Love an Adventure album really took us back to the 80s then Fast Cars and Destination Unknown which I don't think I've heard live before (since I was a fan from the Love an Adventure era onwards their first album was one I bought later at the time).
As with all of the best performers the show just got better as it started towards the end with favourites Listening and Love An Adventure next before a short break. Back for the encore of Funky Town into Over Tomorrow, Try etc as fans were invited up on stage for brilliant covers of Girls on Film and Send Me An Angel. It was well past midnight by the time the show finally came to an end (though it did seem Pseudo Echo could have kept playing all night as they kept rolling into the next great song). The show itself really complimented their previous performance last year and gave us a chance to remember all the great album songs that often didn't get released as singles in addition to all the hits. It amazing how you can still remember the words and the music despite not hearing the songs for so long (yes I've got a lot of stuff on vinyl and tape that I either never upgraded to CD or couldn't find on CD). Was fantastic that Pseudo Echo returned to Adelaide so soon and to such a good venue as The Gov (far better than in the city as there is close carparking as the concert venue is separate from the main bar).
Pseudo Echo was the first band I ever saw live way back in the 80s (even found I have a few pics!) and the first band I've had the chance to photograph as below with the 'big' camera - thank you to Pseudo Echo, the Pseudo Echo Offical facebook page and The Gov for allowing the photos to be taken for this review.
