    Next on stage were Titus Groan , one of the lesser known bands., They played a very nice,  tight set which delighted the audience. The emphasis was mainly on their instrumental work , which proved to be pleasantly inventive. This gig done will have fen them a lot of good . You should try and catch them when you can .
